Imagine a place where you receive the highest standards of care for medical and cosmetic needs. A place where dreams become real, and where zest for life can be regenerated. A place where caring hands facilitate the transition from “one day” to “right now.” At Houston Dermatology and Plastic Surgery, doing the extraordinary in the lives of our patients is the cornerstone of our practice. We have the unique good fortune to see dreams made real and lives transformed – and it happens every day. We invite you to learn more about our practice and our facilities as you consider your own dreams of transformation.
Houston Dermatology and Plastic Surgery was established by board certified plastic surgeon, Dr. Eric Humble, to realize his own vision of a place where patients could be served with professional expertise and genuine caring in a state-of-the-art setting of cutting edge technology ensconced in comfort and elegance. As a continuing effort to provide his patients and families with expanded medical and surgical services in English and Spanish, Dr. Humble partnered with Dr. Filiberto Cedeno Laurent, an Ivy-League trained dermatologist to establish a unique practice that encompasses the full-breath of dermatologic services (pediatric, medical, surgical and cosmetic) in addition to all invasive and non-invasive plastic surgery approaches. Our doctors and the entire staff of caring, dedicated professionals offer concierge services that begin with initial consultations and continue through medical and post-procedural follow-up care. Offering a complete range of dermatological, surgical, cosmetic and restorative procedures and recognized on a national level as “best of the best”, Houston Dermatology and Plastic Surgery has grown to become the “go-to” center for the Houston area.
Our facility houses not only the expected consultation and treatment spaces but also a redefined medical spa featuring the latest technologies and staffed by specially certified nurses and aestheticians. There is even a private library that provides a relaxing space for quiet contemplation before or after a procedure. But most importantly, especially to our current and prospective patients, Houston Dermatology and Plastic Surgery features an ambulatory surgical suite that is certified by AAAASF – the American Association for Accreditation of Ambulatory Surgery Facilities. AAAASF was formed in 1980 to standardize and improve the quality of medical and surgical care in ambulatory facilities and has established the highest standards for patient care and safety in the facilities accredited. Recognized as the de facto “last word” by surgeons, legislators and national health officials, this accreditation represents the Gold Standard in patient care.
We encourage our prospective patients to come in to our center expecting a superlative experience. Our mission is to fulfill that expectation at every phase of an individual’s treatment. One patient who has firsthand experience of the service we provide is Charissa Rudy, of Angleton, Texas, who came to us for breast augmentation. She writes,
“Choosing the right doctor was important for me. I saw a few other doctors in Houston first, then I went to Dr. Humble’s office. He was amazing. He spent a lot of time with me and answered all of my questions. I immediately scheduled my next appointment with him.”
“When I went in for my surgery, Dr. Humble was super-efficient. He was on time and I was in and out quickly. Truly a caring doctor, he gave me his cell phone number so I could call him personally if I needed anything or had any problems after the surgery. And for my post-op appointment, he took time out of his busy weekend to see me on a Saturday morning.”
Charissa’s case is both typical and unique: typical, because we want every patient to have similar experiences and our entire team does everything possible to make that a reality; unique, because we know that every patient’s physical needs and personal goals are different and it is our job to address the patient where they are. Dr. Humble feels that this level of personalized caring is important to a good outcome for the patient.
“My favorite thing is getting to know my patients. I believe that handing out my cell phone number keeps me accountable.”
Charissa went on to speak about Dr. Humble’s helpful and professional advice during her decision-making process as well as his caring bedside manner. But perhaps her best comments were to three of her friends who also experienced Houston Dermatology and Plastic Surgery firsthand. But our success is ultimately deemed successful when we hear comments like these closing words spoken by Charissa Rudy:
“I love the way I look now”
