Meet Paul Vitenas
Founded in 1991 by Paul Vitenas, M.D., Vitenas Cosmetic Surgery specializes in aesthetic procedures for the face and body, such as breast augmentation, vaginal rejuvenation, gynecomastia correction, and the Mommy Makeover.  We bring our patients a world-class surgical center, as well as a vast array of non-invasive techniques, all under one roof.  With extensive surgical training and a keen artistic eye, Dr. Vitenas has made Vitenas Cosmetic Surgery one of the top aesthetic providers in the country. Almost 30 years ago, after graduating from Tulane University Medical School, Dr. Vitenas opened a small private practice in Houston.  Through an endless dedication to patient care, his tiny team grew into a staff of the best nurses, surgical techs, estheticians, and patient coordinators in the area.  Then, in October 2014, to keep up with an ever expanding patient load and the latest cutting-edge technology, Vitenas Cosmetic Surgery opened the doors to one of the largest, most majestic single-physician offices in the city. Vitenas Cosmetic Surgery’s elegant, new, three-story building boasts free and secluded parking; a rarity in downtown Houston.  Equipped with two private, state-of-the-art operating rooms, the Houston Surgery Center is complete with six, high-tech recovery bays.  Additionally, patients have the option of a 23-hour recovery suite, including well-appointed amenities and private nursing care, only steps away from the operating room. To address the blossoming need for non-invasive treatments, Dr. Vitenas created Mirror Mirror Beauty Boutique.  This aesthetic center offers a full range of nonsurgical procedures including dual CoolSculpting machines, Ulthera, dermal fillers, and the largest selection of physician-grade skin care in Houston.  Situated on the first floor of Vitenas Cosmetic Surgery, Mirror Mirror is easily accessible for patients on the run and we gladly welcome drop-ins for Botox Cosmetic.Today, Vitenas Cosmetic Surgery is an active presence in the city of Houston, supporting wellness for the entire community.  Patient education is a vital component of our practice and weekly blogs on topics such as sun safety and skin cancer detection help us to encourage a healthy lifestyle.  Additionally, Dr. Vitenas works with local and national charities, such as the Houston United Way, Toys for Tots, and SillyBox, in an effort to give back to the city.The success of Vitenas Cosmetic Surgery is evidence of our heart-felt dedication to the craft of cosmetic surgery.  We collectively understand that everyone deserves a chance to be their best self.  Dr. Vitenas explains, “True beauty in the human form is a natural look.  That innate beauty, which all human beings possess, is what we try to bring out and let the rest of the world see.” Over the years, Vitenas Cosmetic Surgery has grown to be much more than the ‘average’ plastic surgery office.  Keenly aware of the mind-body connection, we know that even the smallest aesthetic changes can alter someone’s life forever.  We are excited to have the opportunity to join our patients for this momentous journey.
