Dr. Paul Vitenas has built a practice based on “The Fine Art of Natural Cosmetic Surgery,” which is unique and unlike many other top plastic surgeons. His goal is to provide a superior level of natural surgical results, service and care throughout the patient’s entire cosmetic surgery journey.
Delivering natural results in cosmetic plastic surgery requires a combination of rigorous training, years of experience and an artistic eye, which understands proportion and beauty.
Nearly 25 years ago, Dr. Vitenas established the renowned Vitenas Cosmetic Surgery, and this past September, unveiled a brand-new stand-alone clinic, inspired by his commitment to safety, quality and service. Not a single detail was overlooked. The state-of-the-art three-story building features a private surgical center and a luxurious overnight recovery-suite as well as drive up covered parking. There is a secluded rear elevator for discretion and secret passages so patients can maneuver unseen throughout the clinic.
On the lower level of Vitenas Cosmetic Surgery is the beautiful Mirror Mirror Beauty Boutique, conveniently offering non-invasive medi-spa services, including CoolSculpting, laser hair removal, Botox Cosmetic and dermal fillers, Titan Skin Tightening System, Ulthera and 3D Rejuvenation, as well as Fraxel Dual. A beauty counter features the area’s largest selection of Skin Medica products.

Since its establishment in 1996, The Aesthetic Center for Plastic Surgery (ACPS) has risen to become one of the largest, most respected private cosmetic plastic surgery practices in Texas. With its own in-house research center, ACPS has been at the forefront of introducing innovations which have transformed the art, science and safety of plastic surgery.
Consistently voted by their peers as some of Houston’s top plastic surgeons in numerous magazine surveys, ACPS’s six plastic surgeons have attained a distinguished list of awards and achievements among them. This includes invitations to teach and present their expertise at plastic surgery conferences around the world and on television, a best facial rejuvenation award at a European conference in Paris on anti-aging, best paper awards at plastic surgery meetings, and editor’s choice and article of the year awards for their contributions to plastic surgery journals.
ACPS surgeons combine their expansive collaborative surgical expertise to deliver impressive, natural-looking, long-lasting aesthetic results using the most advanced surgical techniques and stringent safety protocols. ACPS’s highly-trained staff members work together to ensure every patient receives the best outcome possible and an unsurpassed level of comprehensive care to optimize patients’ satisfaction and comfort. This includes such concierge services as postsurgical therapeutic massage to support and speed healing following surgery and a visit to patients’ homes one to two days after surgery from an ACPS medical professional to monitor patients’ recovery.
As a testament to its solid track record of success and patient satisfaction, ACPS recently expanded its reach throughout Texas with the opening of a third office, located in Katy. With the addition of its sixth and first female plastic surgeon to the group, Dr. Kristi L. Hustak, the group is pleased to expand its broad array of surgical and nonsurgical procedures to include cosmetic female genital rejuvenation, one of the fastest growing areas of cosmetic plastic surgery.
