Introduction

The human form is not perfect, but through plastic surgery, areas of the face and body can be enhanced to match your desires. Aside from its cosmetic advantages, plastic surgery can be used to reconstruct areas of the body that have suffered from disease and traumatic injury.

If you are a patient from Jordan, Saudi Arabia, and China and are seeking plastic, cosmetic, and reconstructive surgery, allow me and my team to connect you to Houston’s top surgeons.

Breast Reconstruction

Over the years, I have been privileged to work with the leading plastic surgeons in Houston, Texas. These specialists have dedicated their careers to restore the bodies of women who have survived breast cancer.

Breast Reconstruction surgically rebuilds the breasts and can be done during treatment (immediate) or after (delayed). Surgical methods for reconstruction include:

  • Tissue expander implants:
    A tissue expander is an inflatable silicone implant that is inserted to the chest after a mastectomy. The implant is designed to expand over time with a saline solution that slowly stretches the breasts to your desired shape.
  • Flap-based reconstruction:
    The most advanced form of breast reconstruction available today, flap-based surgery uses your own tissue (skin, fat, blood vessels) to reconstruct the best. There are three forms of techniques for this procedure, including:

    • TRAM Flaps – Tissue and blood vessels are taken from the transverse rectus abdomis muscle (TRAM) in the lower abdomen and are used to reconstruct the breasts. Survivors who undergo this procedure often say that the results look and feel the most natural.
      TRAM flaps are executed in two ways:

      • Traditional (Pedicled) TRAM Flap – The more traditional way of executing this surgery. The arteries are left in place.
      • Free TRAM Flap – A more complex version of this procedure. A free TRAM Flap utilizes microvascular techniques to sever the arteries connected to the Flap before being reconnected to the chest, allowing a better circulation of blood to the area.
    • DIEP Flap – A popular choice for many patients, the DIEP Flap is similar to the free TRAM Flap, with the exception being that muscles are left in place and are not transplanted to the chest.
    • LatissimusDorsi Flap – An ideal procedure for women with smaller breasts. Skin, muscle, and fat are located in the upper back are repositioned to chest.
  • Tissue and implant reconstruction – This combination of techniques is used in the event you may not have substantial tissue volume, requiring the use of an implant to increase the size of the breast.

Consultation

Our journey together begins with your initial consultation. We will do this virtually through Skype or any video messaging service of your choice. This typically lasts between 15 – 20 minutes. During our consultation together, I will learn about your cosmetic or reconstructive needs as well as your medical history.

Once the consultation is over, I will compile a list of suitable surgeons who can address your needs. From there, we will schedule another virtual consultation with your surgeon to discuss your procedure in further detail. Some patients, however, will prefer to schedule an in-person consultation to discuss the procedure face-to- face.

After we have agreed on a surgical plan, my team and I will schedule your procedure and arrange your flight to the United States.

Plastic & Reconstructive Surgery Cost

Depending on your procedure, the costs will range from USD$8,000 – USD$100,000. The total cost depends on a number of factors, including:

  • Doctor and his level of experience.
  • Area of the body being treated.
  • Location of the surgery.
  • Hospital/Medical Center Costs.
  • Prescribed medication.

Travel & Accommodations

Once you have been medically accepted, we can provide you with all supporting information needed to apply for your Visa. This involves filing the necessary paperwork and securing any permits you may require. We can also sort out your travel arrangements.

We can arrange for a service car to meet you at the airport and escort you directly to your hotel, the Westin Houston Memorial City. The cost of transport services varies from $85 (by taxi) – $120 (by transport company).

We will schedule consultations over the course of your first two days in the country. On the day of your procedure, a car will pick you up from your hotel and escort you directly to a private room at the prestigious Memorial Hermann Medical Center in Houston’s Memorial City.

Plastic surgery procedures range between 2 – 6 hours, while reconstructive procedures will take between 4 – 10 hours.

The duration of your hospital stay depends on the procedure done. We will support you through your stay in Houston until you complete your recovery, which may last for 2 – 3 weeks.

To help pass the time, my team and I will create an itinerary with suitable activities that you and your family can enjoy during your stay in the city. Overall, you can expect to spend six weeks in the United States.

More details can be provided once we know the procedure you will undergo.
