Dr. Henry Mentz

Dr. Henry Mentz is a nationally and internationally respected plastic surgeon who is consistently recognized as a top doctor in both local and national publications because of his excellence as a surgeon and the innovative procedures and techniques he has introduced to the field of aesthetic plastic surgery. Originally from Louisiana, he currently practices in Houston, Texas at The Aesthetic Center for Plastic Surgery, the largest private aesthetic surgery center in Texas.

In a Goldline Research report published in Forbes magazine, Dr. Mentz was cited as a leading plastic surgeon in the United States. And his peers in the medical community have repeatedly nominated him in H-Texas® Magazine as one of the selected “Top Docs” to whom they would send family members and friends.

As the nation’s first triple-board certified surgeon, Dr. Mentz actively researches technology that allows him to provide patients with the best results for their appearance, safety, and comfort. Drawing upon his specialized training in facial plastic surgery, he continually applies and refines the most advanced facial rejuvenation techniques to restore a youthful and natural-looking appearance to the face. He forged new ground in the art of liposculpture as the first to perform the Abdominal Etching® and Pectoral Etching® procedures to give the abdominal and pectoral muscles a more defined, athletic appearance. And he has implemented strategies to provide both a more comfortable tummy tuck recovery and to improve safety in the operating room. His devotion to detail and quest for researching and applying the most advanced techniques have led him to become a surgeon who is not only respected nationally, but one who is beloved by his patients for his dedication to their care.

Biography

Dr. Mentz has dedicated the last 25 years of his career in medicine to the art and science of aesthetic plastic surgery.

When Dr. Mentz was completing his general surgery residency, he recognized that his skill and interest drew him to cosmetic plastic and reconstructive work. He enjoyed the attention to detail and the challenges presented by each individual case in facial plastic surgery. He decided to pursue cosmetic surgery as a specialty and entered the plastic surgery fellowship that brought him to Houston.

At the time, there were few programs in the nation with a concentration in aesthetic plastic surgery. Dr. Mentz feels fortunate to have learned from the most innovative and experienced aesthetic surgeons in the nation.

After more than two decades in private practice, Dr. Mentz has become keenly aware that aesthetic surgery is much more than a physical change. It is about restoring the body, mind and spirit so that patients can approach the next chapter of life with confidence. He has the blessing of partnering with patients and joining them on their journey.

Dr. Mentz’s goal is to find new ways to make plastic surgery better, safer, and more comfortable for his patients and aesthetic patients all over the world through continued thought and innovation.

His expertise in aesthetic surgery and research has attracted the attention of plastic surgeons around the world and allowed for the growing of specialized aesthetic practices, pioneering private research, and improving the experience for each patient. Dr. Mentz has enjoyed sharing these visions and innovations on podiums in more than 12 countries.

More About Dr. Mentz

Comprehensive, patient-centric care has always been a top priority for Dr. Mentz. From the moment you begin your aesthetic journey with us, we want you to be well-informed of your options — both surgical and non-surgical. This way you’re able to make an educated decision based on your specific goals, needs, and expectations.

During your initial consultation, you will meet with Dr. Mentz in person and one of his patient coordinators — Stephanie Wilcox or Jasmine Gallo. The patient coordinators will introduce you to the practice, guide you through your consultation, and ensure you are educated and well prepared for your procedure. 

Our goal is for you to obtain the most out of your visit. We encourage you to be open and honest about your desired appearance and why you are interested in cosmetic surgery. Together we will define a plan that provides the safest and most natural results.

Dr. Mentz will use VECTRA, an advanced 3D computer imaging, during your consultation. A series of digital photos will be taken of your face.. These photos can then be altered, step by step, with a specialized pen and pad. You will be deeply involved in making the decision about the look you want, and to see how it will look on your face. This system is an important aspect of our practice, as we are committed to achieving outstanding results – and this high-tech system aids us to fully understand the changes you envision. While no computer image is 100 percent accurate in perfectly matching the final real-world results, this system is extremely helpful in planning a customized surgical procedure to meet your expectations, and gives Dr. Mentz a comprehensive understanding of your desires.
After your consultation with Dr. Mentz, our patient coordinators will provide a customized and tailored quote that reflects your surgical procedures.

“A keen aesthetic sense and devotion to detail
are paramount in every procedure.”
– Henry Mentz

In my 25 years of professional practice, I have learned that regardless of the procedure, all of my patients desire to look natural and balanced. It is my goal that procedures give patients their desired look with minimal scarring and lasting results.

My training in facial plastic surgery taught me that facial aging happens in four ways, and to truly reverse signs of aging you have to address each of these four elements. They are skin laxity, skin quality deterioration, facial volume loss, and soft tissue descent. I have spent 25 years studying and perfecting the art of face lift surgery, developing techniques to give my patients a youthful, rejuvenated look without the startling appearance of “having work done.”

With body contouring and breast enhancement, my goal is to give my patients freedom of lifestyle, so they are no longer encumbered by the negative aspects of their physique. These procedures can have a profound impact on the types of activities you feel comfortable doing and the clothing you are comfortable wearing. Restoring bedroom confidence is something that I have seen dramatically change the lives of patients and their marriage.

Over the past two decades I have seen a variety of trends in what patients want in regard to body contouring. Years ago, women would come in wanting all their fat removed. Today, they are looking for curves in the right places, and wanting their fat to be redistributed to other areas rather than just removed. It’s a very refreshing trend to see as a plastic surgeon.

I take great pride in my occupation and helping others achieve their appearance goals. Aesthetic surgery is much more than a physical transformation. I firmly believe that your outlook on life is a direct reflection of how much you like yourself, and unfortunately our physical appearance is where we are most self-critical.

Too often I hear my surgical patients say, “I wish I would have done this ten years ago.” This is not your practice life, this is it. So choose today, start becoming the best you.

“My goal with facial rejuvenation is to give patients a refreshed, youthful appearance that doesn’t appear artificial or overdone. When you see a good facelift, you don’t notice it. Generally I am able to give patients a look that is 10 to 15 years younger.”  -Dr. Henry Mentz, ACPS plastic surgeon and facial rejuvenation specialist

As one of the world’s foremost leaders in facial rejuvenation surgery, Dr. Mentz has been the driving force behind numerous advancements to perfect the techniques and results of facelift surgery. His results have earned international acclaim, notably in Paris, France at the 2013 World Congress of Anti-Aging, where plastic surgeons across the globe gathered to share the latest strategies and cosmetic procedures for anti-aging. At the conference, where Dr. Mentz was one four Americans invited to be a guest lecturer, a judging panel of Dr.Mentz’s colleagues awarded him “The Best Surgical Facial Rejuvenation” trophy. With his innovative approach to delivering comprehensive, natural-looking, long-lasting results, you can feel self-assured you’ve chosen the best.

The excellence of Dr. Mentz’s customized approach to facial rejuvenation method was spotlighted at the 2013 Anti-Aging Medicine European Congress in Paris, where a judging panel awarded Dr. Mentz the “Best Clinical Case in Surgical Facial Rejuvenation” trophy. The winning entry featured the transformative results of this female patient for whom Dr. Mentz performed a combination of facelift, necklift, browlift, eyelid surgery and fat grafting.

Dr. Mentz’s Customized Approach to Facelift Surgery

In 1993, Dr. Mentz became the nation’s first triple board certified surgeon in

  • Head & Neck Surgery
  • Facial Plastic Surgery
  • Plastic & Reconstructive Surgery

Combining this extensive expertise with his never-ending quest to perfect facelift techniques and results, Dr.Mentz developed a customized facelift approach that produces the greatest, most natural-looking rejuvenation possible. With this method, he measures and grades the level of aging and laxity at various points of the face. Based upon this, he determines the most effective strategy to lift and reposition the soft tissue layers of the face, customizing the degree of lift and tension he performs on each area in order to produce the best improvement.

Based upon the success of this method, Dr. Mentz was invited to write a chapter detailing his techniques in the plastic surgery textbook Advanced Surgical Facial Rejuvenation in 2012.

Dr. Mentz’s Multidimensional Approach to Facial Rejuvenation

Dr. Mentz’s revolutionary approach to facelift surgery eliminates one of the most common aesthetic pitfalls and dreaded concerns surrounding facelift surgery: an artificial “pulled” look. That’s because facelifts of the past primarily focused of tightening skin to smooth wrinkles–often resulting in an overly taut appearance. By lifting and tightening the sagging underlying layers of the face as well; more natural, longer-lasting results can be achieved.

Beyond sagging skin and tissues, Dr. Mentz also addresses the other key components that research shows contribute to an aged facial appearance: a loss of facial volume and thinning of the skin. For that reason, he often includes fat grafting to areas such as the cheeks and nasolabial folds to restore youthful, supple contours to the face, while laser skin resurfacing treatments revitalize the skin’s tone, texture, and radiance.
