There is a reason why we're acknowledged as one of the top offices for plastic and cosmetic surgery in Houston, and our expertise and comprehensive patient focus are the cornerstones of our sterling reputation.

No matter what cosmetic procedure you require, it's wise to select Houston, TX plastic surgeons that focus on the entire body. While a surgeon who has performed only breast augmentations undoubtedly has a great deal of experience in the field, he or she may not be able to assess how the new breasts will look in relation to the individual's body. Dr. Lapuerta looks beyond the specific procedure area to the whole body, offering the best look for each person.

You will meet with the patient coordinator, view "before and after" photos, and watch an informative video that provides you with a visual as to what occurs during surgery. You will then meet with Dr. Lapuerta who will go over your medical history and perform a physical examination. Once a procedure has been agreed upon you will be given a quote along with financing options.

Botox is by far the most popular cosmetic procedure in the United States, with close to 7.7 million patients receiving Botox injections in 2019, according to the American Society of Plastic Surgeons. Botox is popular for a reason, as it offers patients a quick, easy way to reduce the appearance of wrinkles and other signs of aging without having to undergo surgery. Dr. Leo Lapuerta, a plastic surgeon with over two decades of experience in Houston, Katy, and Pearland, Texas, is an expert when it comes to dealing with the complex anatomy of the face.
