Sugar Land Face & Body Plastic Surgery Centers Around Patient Care & Professionalism

Cover Story | By M.G. Angulo –

As patients become more scrupulous with who they choose for their desired beauty enhancement surgeries or procedures, Sugar Land Face and Body Plastic Surgery remains a pillar in the medical industry, offering a variety of beautification desires, surgical and non-surgical alike. From breast augmentation, rhinoplasty, chemical peels and liposuction to face lifts, mommy makeovers, tummy tucks and body contouring, patients need only to contact Dr. Eric Humble, who is devoted to providing his patients with confidence through exceptional results.

“Sugar Land Face and Body Plastic Surgery offers the best and most natural beauty enhancements results,” said Dr. Humble, who is a board-certified plastic surgeon fully trained in plastic, reconstructive, head and neck surgery. “We have a trust within this community. We’re not going to push people into getting procedures because we’re dedicated to delivering superior results. My only goal is to erase those imperfections that drive you crazy, so you can have renewed confidence. We want every patient to feel excited about life after a visit to us.”

A Gold Standard Surgery Suite

With more than 2,000 square feet dedicated to peri-op and post-op care, Sugar Land Face and Body Plastic Surgery has successfully performed nearly 1,000 surgeries in house since moving to its current location at 1692 South West Freeway. And the foundation for this success, Dr. Humble noted, is because he is keen on patient safety, made evident through his Sugar Land practice’s American Association for Accreditation of Ambulatory Surgery Facilities (AAAASF) certified on-site operating room.

The AAAASF’s mission is to “develop and implement standards of excellence to ensure the highest quality of patient safety through an accreditation program. “Accredited facilities and clinics have been inspected and met 100 percent of the standards set by AAAASF for Accreditation,” and Dr. Humble, who’s exacting practice not only meets, but exceeds, those standards set forth by the medical community and its overseers, highlighting his practice as setting the “Gold Standard” for quality patient care.

At Sugar Land Face and Body Plastic Surgery, Dr. Humble’s operating room – which features a separate entrance from the main building to offer both patient privacy and accessibility – features state-of-the-art equipment and is in compliance with all of the required standards, allowing Dr. Humble and his staff to provide concierge-oriented care to patients. Additionally, the surgical team is comprised of two RNs, a surgical technologist and an anesthesiologist, who is in-house the entire time a surgery is performed.

“Our anesthesiologist doesn’t leave until the patient leaves,” said Dr. Humble. “When in surgery, a patient will have two doctors in the room, and as an added comfort, we have back-ups for any equipment needed during the surgery. In other words, we have double of everything because safety is the most important aspect here.”

Plus, he continued, Sugar Land Face and Body Plastic Surgery is conveniently located near a major hospital where Dr. Humble has privileges. “We have never had to use it,” he stressed. “But this increases the comfort of our patients.”

Patients undergoing beauty enhancement surgeries also have access to the main facility that includes the comforts of a medical spa, as well as a private library where they can relax before, during or after surgery. “Everything is under one roof,” Dr. Humble said. “From free consultations to surgeries, our patients get everything they need here in one place.”

Offering Premier Services

Since opening his first successful practice in Sugar Land, Dr. Humble expanded his practice by opening a new office, Houston Dermatology and Plastic Surgery, located at 3030 South Mason Road in Katy in 2017. This location features plastic surgeon Dr. Mirtha Gonzalez, who completed her general surgery residency in the prestigious Michael E. DeBakey Department of Surgery at Baylor College of Medicine and plastic surgery residency at the University of Miami/Jackson Health System.  Dr. Filiberto Cedeno Laurent, a Harvard trained and board-certified dermatologist with extensive expertise in skin cancer, complex medical, surgical and cosmetic dermatology, also practices at both the Katy and Sugar Land locations.

“My practice has been growing since the beginning due to my practice style,” said Dr. Humble. “I believe in taking care of my patients like you take care of your family, so as we continued to grow, we’ve added highly-qualified and skilled professionals to serve an even larger population.”

While Sugar Land Face and Body Plastic Surgery is the only office that features an on-site operation room, Dr. Humble’s Katy location offers the same services as the Sugar Land office, namely the renowned medical spa, which is a premier option for patients who do not need, or want, surgery to achieve their desire look. “We have purchased every type of technology to make this spa the most cutting-edge of its kind, with the most up-to-date procedures that truly show results,” said Dr. Humble. “Not everyone puts this kind of investment into a spa.”

Through its medical spa, Sugar Land Face and Body offers breast enhancement, body contouring and facial rejuvenation, but the medical spa has increased the facilities’ services to advanced non-surgical procedures, often referred to as aesthetic procedures. Some of the traditional procedures offered in the medical spa are Botox and fillers; however, the spa also offers procedures such as CoolSculpting, a fat-freezing treatment designed to reduce fat volume reduction; Micro-Needling treating moderate acne, fine lines and wrinkles, lax skin, burns, stretch marks, as well as skin texture and pore size; hair rejuvenation and Ultherapy, the aesthetic option to tighten, lift and tone skin.

The only FDA-cleared procedure for non-surgical neck, brow and under-chin lifts, Ultherapy is ideal for those considering a facelift and uses ultra- sound energy to lift and tighten skin. “Ultherapy is a great non-surgical option to a facelift, as well as a preventative measure for the younger population,” said. Dr. Humble.

A Philosophy of Care and Confidence

Dr. Humble has a philosophy that flows throughout every aspect of the practice: each patient will leave feeling confident because confidence changes lives. “Improving one’s looks directly correlates with an improvement in self-confidence. This spills over into our patients’ lives and relationships,” Dr. Humble explained. “This in turn translates into healthier, happier individuals. After their transformation, our patients are energized with a new love for life that improves their quality of life. This is what is so rewarding to me as a physician.”

When patients come to him, their flaws are not shunned, nor are they pressured to fit into a mold determined by society. Rather, his practice is a sanctuary where someone can find a personal satisfaction and the peace that comes along with it. Patients under the care of Sugar Land Face and Body Plastic Surgery find that Dr. Humble creates a beautification journey that is equally safe and comfortable, from the first moment to the last.

When a patient has a consultation, Dr. Humble ensures it feels like conversing with a longtime and trusted friend. He considers more than the physical appearance of his patients; he takes into account their lifestyle, their health, medical history and if they are looking for corrective or preventative care. He never pushes a procedure on a patient, instead, he listens to what a patient wants before offering options, whether it be a surgical or non-surgical one.

“My favorite thing is getting to know my patients,” he said, noting that he not only discusses a patient’s surgical options, he creates an individualized surgical plan, because he knows that everyone is different and must be treated as such. “We treat all patients equally with dignity and respect and ensure that they have all of their questions answered. Surgery can be intimidating, and it is important that all questions have been answered in detail. In peri-operative care, we hold patient’s safety as our first priority. Everything we do is centered around patient care and professionalism.”
