Professional Statement

Board Certified by the American Board of Plastic Surgery, Paul Vitenas, Jr., M.D., F.A.C.S. is the founder of Vitenas Cosmetic Surgery, Mirror Mirror Beauty Boutique, and Houston Surgery Center. In 1990, after graduating from Tulane University Medical School in New Orleans, Dr. Vitenas came to Houston to begin his private practice. Today, Vitenas Cosmetic Surgery’s 15,000 square foot, state-of-the-art cosmetic surgery center, and adjoining medical spa, are considered one of the country’s foremost medical aesthetic practices. Dr. Vitenas brings close to 30 years of plastic surgery experience to each procedure. Over time, he has developed his own, innovative techniques, all marked by his personalized surgical style; making him one of the most sought after aesthetic providers in the state of Texas. His work has been featured in numerous medical journals, as well as popular beauty publications such as Allure, Glamour, and Self Magazine. The recipient of many awards, Dr. Vitenas has recently received recognition as the Best Single Physician Practice, a Top Ten Plastic Surgeons in Middle American, a Texas Super Doctor, and a Top Doctor on RealSelf, as well as an Angie’s List Super Service Award. Above all, Dr. Vitenas is honored by patient-nominated accolades. Over the years these have included multiple Patient’s Choice Awards, being named among America’s Most Compassionate Doctors, and receiving the CMUS Talk of the Town Customer Satisfaction Award. Vitenas Cosmetic Surgery would not be the thriving practice that it is today without assistance from the Houston community. As a way to give back to the area, Dr. Vitenas works with a variety of local and national charities, such as the Houston United Way, Toys for Tots, and SillyBox. Dr. Vitenas routinely partners with Houston’s small business community, helping to give clients their best experience, all while adding to the growth of our great city. Intensely dedicated to his patients, Dr. Vitenas provides individually tailored care to each individual, starting from the moment they walk into the office. While plastic surgery alone cannot change lives, Dr. Vitenas and his experienced staff know that when a patient has realistic expectations and a deep motivation for change, the final results can be extraordinary. To meet these aesthetic goals, every patient receives a uniquely designed treatment plan, created to walk them through their procedure, step-by-step. With the ultimate goal of dramatic, yet natural-appearing results, Dr. Vitenas accentuates and elevates each patient’s organic beauty. Combining his artistic eye, meticulous attention to detail, and love for science, Dr. Vitenas has the experience, skill, and creativity to bring out the intrinsic splendor that resides inside everyone. Some of the most popular procedures include breast augmentation, Liposuction, Tummy Tuck and Vaginal Rejuvenation. Dr. Vitenas and the staff at Vitenas Cosmetic Surgery are looking forward to assisting you in this journey towards your personal best. Schedule a consultation appointment with Dr. Vitenas to discuss your aesthetic wishes and goals. No matter how large or small the change, we at Vitenas Cosmetic Surgery are committed to providing the superior care you desire and deserve.
