Cosmetic Surgery

Houston Methodist West Hospital offers newest surgical and non-invasive techniques within a state-of-the-art facility. Our highly skilled surgeons provide a tailored experience for each patient to address a wide range of medical needs. Cosmetic procedures include:

  • Body contour surgery –– liposuction, surgery after massive weight loss, body sculpting, tummy tuck, body lift, arm lift, thigh lift, breast lift, upper body lift
  • Breast Rejuvenation
    • Breast lift-The effects of breast-feeding and gravity can have deleterious effects on breast position. The tissue becomes “deflated” and the nipple and breast mound descends on the chest wall. Skin tightening procedures lift the breast mound as well as the nipple and areola. Occasionally patients request a larger breast size, especially after the deflating effects of breast-feeding. For many women, the lift and augmentation can be performed in a single procedure.
    • Breast augmentation-One of the most common procedures performed by plastic surgeons, breast augmentationis an out patient procedure that can increase the size of your breast as well as provide some degree of lift to the nipple. The newest silicone and saline implants offer a wide array of options for patients.
    • Breast reduction-Excessively large breasts frequently cause back and neck pain as well as grooves or irritation on the shoulders from bra straps. Sleep and participation in other activities may also be affected. A mammoplasty commonly known as breast reduction is an out patient surgery which can relieve women of pain and social embarrassment and provide a renewed ability to exercise.
