Did you know one of the country’s most venerated and highly awarded plastic surgery practices is right here in Houston? The Aesthetic Center for Plastic Surgery is renowned for its talented team of board-certified plastic surgeons, its leadership in ground-breaking research and advanced education, including its own fellowship program, and for providing an exemplary level of patient care.

The practice was founded 25 years ago with a vision of providing world-class results, empathy for their patients, and a passion for their craft. Always evolving and growing, ACPS plans to add more gifted plastic surgeons to the team this year and recently opened a third location in The Woodlands’ office of cosmetic dentist Dr. Guy Lewis.

Above and Beyond

With a vast array of leading-edge surgical and nonsurgical aesthetic services, ACPS patients enjoy highly customized treatment plans and incredibly natural-looking results. When appropriate, advanced digital imaging is used during your consultation so you can visualize potential results before surgery.

ACPS’s expansive flagship center in Houston was designed specifically for cosmetic procedures with patient safety and privacy in mind. The on-site surgery center certified by the American Association for the Accreditation of Ambulatory Surgery Facilities includes postoperative rooms for overnight stays. A physician anesthesiologist is assigned to you prior to surgery, never leaving your side throughout.

Comprehensive surgical plans include noninvasive treatments and even radio frequency heat to support recovery and improve outcomes. The day following surgery, a home-care staff checks on patients to help ensure their comfort and safe recovery.

Patients Praise Their Plastic Surgeons

The online review excerpts below are all from actual ACPS patients. All plastic surgeons are board-certified by the American Board of Plastic Surgery.

Christopher K. Patronella, MD, FACS, FICS

“I love Dr. Patronella. I had a Mommy Makeover (breast lift and his True Form tummy tuck), and he has changed my life. I’ve never felt confidence like this before. I never thought I could look in the mirror and say I love my body, but now I can’t help but think about it and smile every time I look at myself. I won’t go to anyone else because I know Dr. Patronella is the best. Honestly, it’s amazing how he’s transformed my body, and I’m over the moon!”

Henry A. Mentz, MD, FACS, FICS

During my search of the surgeon, I was convinced Dr. Mentz was the best in town and in the country. I’m so glad he was! My procedures were done perfectly, and I’m very happy with the results. Dr. Mentz is kind, patient, and has excellent bedside manners, which truly put you at ease. Technically, he is at the top of his game, so experienced, and at the front end of new development. My procedures went extremely well, and I had a speedy recovery. These days, as I look in the mirror, I see a youthful, refreshed look. I cannot be happier I chose Dr. Mentz!”

German Newall, MD, FACS, FICS

”My sister had a breast augmentation done with Dr. Newall, and hers are amazing! She recommended him, and I am so happy she did. The staff is excellent and answered all 10,000 questions my husband and I had. Dr. Newall took his time and gave me his recommendation on the size of implant he thought would be best for my small body frame. The staff is beautiful, sweet, and knowledgeable. The surgery staff is fun, personable, and made sure I was comfortable. I’m very pleased with my decision to go with Dr. Newall.”

Paul F. Fortes, MD, FACS, FICS

“I had the best experience ever with Dr. Fortes, his assistant, and staff. I was so nervous, but they helped me feel comfortable and held my hand through the entire experience. His bedside manners are amazing, and I love the way he made me beautiful. My results are amazing and now I’m ready to move onto the second half of my surgery. My friends and family have all commented on how awesome I look, so I feel like a million dollars. This has improved my self-esteem. Thank you, Dr. Fortes!”

Rolando Morales Jr., MD, FACS, FICS

“I absolutely loved Dr. Morales. From the first time I stepped foot into his office, he and his staff were very friendly and professional. My results are incredible. I did consult with other doctors before him, but as soon as I met Dr. Morales, I knew he was the one for me. He really enjoys what he does, and it shows! He will be my surgeon for life! Make yourself a favor and call his office today.”

Kristi Hustak, MD, FACS, FICS

“Words can’t describe how amazing Dr. Hustak is. She’s kind, sweet, genuine, an artist in the OR, a good listener, gorgeous, and delivers better than expected results. She made me so comfortable, from the first consultation, I felt at ease. She takes her time to hear your concerns and follows through. I’m one-month post-op and so happy with my results so far… Her bedside manners are amazing, and she’s just an incredible person overall.”

Courtney El-Zokm, MD

“Dr. Courtney has the most amazing bedside manner of any doctor I’ve known. Immediately you can tell he has a beautiful heart and soul, and that leads him to make you feel amazing and comfortable throughout the entire process. The results are everything I could have dreamed of plus, more. He did an amazing job of listening to exactly what I felt the most insecure about. My experience with him has been nothing but 5-star and the best.”
