Safe Aesthetic Plastic Surgery takes more than a Dermatology Degree

The difference between an Aesthetic Surgeon and a Plastic Surgeon is one of perspective and degree. All Plastic Surgeons have the ability to do aesthetic work. However, many Aesthetic Surgeons do not have the training and experience to do reconstructive work like hand surgery, trauma correction, or breast / head / neck reconstruction after injury or cancer. Above all, I am a trained and certified Plastic Surgeon. We have many high profile doctors in the greater Houston area, and unfortunately, in Texas the rules for what a doctor – or Dentist for that matter – may describe themselves as, is … Continue reading  

Breast Implants

Breast Implants  – Saline Versus Silicone A recent question on Facebook prompted a longer response than we expected, so we thought we’d share it! The textbook answer to the saline versus silicone debate is: Saline breast implants. Saline implants are filled with saline, generally during your surgery. Saline implants are often criticized for feeling hard or unnatural, but improved surgical techniques — such as placing the implant behind the chest muscle and slightly overfilling it — have helped these complaints. Saline breast implants are available for women 18 and older looking for breast augmentation, or women of any age for breast … Continue reading  


Intense Pulsed Light Therapy – IPL Special! If you are not familiar with Intense Pulsed Light (IPL) therapy, it is the most innovative skin treatment system we have seen in years. It involves specially constructed Xenon Flash Lamp bulbs and focusing optics to rapidly discharge high energy light on to your skin. The pulses of light produced by IPL equipment are very short in duration, so discomfort and damage to non-target tissues is minor. IPLs work more directly on the top layers of the skin, and generally do not penetrate deep enough to damage the epidermis. Although some salons use IPL for … Continue reading  

The U.S. is Safe once again after Hack NY Plastic Surgeon sent back to Dominican

It’s back to the Dominican Republic for a hack plastic surgeon who lured Latina women from Manhattan salons to Santo Domingo for cheap liposuctions that left them near death and permanently disfigured. “He promised me that he was going to transform me, make me more beautiful, more confident,” victim Lissette Mejjia, 36, of The Bronx, remembered at the sentencing today of Hector Cabral, 52. Then came life-threatening infections that left them hospitalized for weeks. “I cannot even show myself, my body” sobbed victim Francisca Fernandez, 48, of The Bronx. “I am scared to even see myself in the mirror. When … Continue reading  


Vegan Life = Plastic Surgery? I consider myself a health conscious Plastic Surgeon. Yes, I do use surgical techniques to alter the body. However, I believe and preach that we must first be healthy before we can make cosmetic alterations. Liposuction is for certain situations, not a massive weight loss plan. I went vegan nearly nine months ago. My motivation for this diet change came after reading The China Study by T. Colin Campbell, which was also made into a documentary called Forks over Knives. Campbell broke down his eight principles of food and health: – Nutrition represents the combined … Continue reading  

Reverse Tummy Tuck

Reverse Tummy Tuck or Abdominoplasty A reverse tummy tuck, also known as a reverse abdominoplasty, is an aesthetic surgical procedure that removes excess, loose skin from the upper abdomen. The traditional tummy tuck addresses the issue of loose skin of both the upper and lower abdomen. A reverse tummy tuck focuses on removing excess, loose skin above the belly button or navel. Therefore a woman with a tight lower tummy but loose skin of the upper tummy would be an ideal candidate for this surgery. Of course an ideal candidate is also in good health, is a non-smoker, and has realistic expectations. The reverse … Continue reading
