Houston, Texas is home to NASA’s Johnson Space Center and to America’s Oil Industry. It is a high-tech city whose population is youthful, active and technologically in sync with the world. Cosmetic plastic surgery in Houston is also high-tech, with many advances created by the research done through NASA in laser applications.
While vanity cosmetic surgery is the norm at private clinics, not all plastic surgery performed in the city is for vanity reasons. Reconstructive surgery plays an important part of the plastic surgery performed on a daily basis. Plastic surgeons perform cosmetic dentistry, facial reconstructions and repair of birth defects almost as often as they perform a tummy tuck.
Specialization is heavily practiced among the cosmetic surgeons in the area. Some of the clinics specialize in breast augmentation and facial procedures only. Others deal with new laser treatments for skin problems. Many utilize the new technologies including plasma skin treatments, laser epidermal treatment and laser hair removal.
However, most cosmetic surgeons prefer to generalize and allow their clientele to avail themselves of a cosmetic surgery menu that might include such procedures as tummy tucks, liposuction, eyelid surgery, face lifts, weight loss surgery, breast augmentation and breast reduction, dermabrasion, rhinoplasty and a variety of other processes. This also allows the client to decide if one, or more, procedures would be desired.
The private clinics that have sprung up around the city as well as in the suburbs are mini-medical centers or designed as spa-type centers. Both the mini-medical centers and the spa settings rely on the results produced by their plastic surgeons. The patient is the one who decides which form of surgical atmosphere suits them best.
