Dr. Eric Humble is the ideal doctor for beauty enhancement options, because when it comes to beautification, Dr. Humble has one, and only one, goal: to help someone reach the place they want to be on both a physical and emotional level.

Dr. Humble, who has a two-office practice, one in Sugar Land and one in Katy, said 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 a man or woman can find a personal satisfaction and the peace that comes along with it.

Dr. Humble, along with Dr. Filiberto Cedeno Laurent who has recently joined Dr. Humble, has a philosophy that flows throughout every aspect of his 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 and happier individuals. After their transformation, our patients are energized with a new love of life that improves their quality of life. This is what is so rewarding to me as a physician.”

Since opening his first, extremely successful practice — Sugar Land Face and Body Plastic Surgery — in 2010, Dr. Humble, a board certified plastic surgeon fully trained in plastic, reconstructive, head and neck surgery, has shared his unique quality of care with so many satisfied patients that he expanded his practice by opening a new office in Katy.  Houston Dermatology and Plastic Surgery, located at 3030 South Mason Road, opened in August of 2017. This location is led by Dr. Cedeno, who’s commitment to patient care, along with his warm and compassionate manner, create an instant rapport with patients, making them feel like family.

“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. I treat them like I want to be treated. I know the majority of my patients personally, and I know about their situations and family. I really get to know them and care for each and every one of them.”

A Superior Medical Spa

To the delight of his patients, both of Dr. Humble’s offices feature a renown medical spa, the place 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 spa with the most up-to-date procedures that truly show results,” said Dr. Humble. “Not everyone puts this kind of investment into a spa.”

Sugar Land Face and Body and Houston Dermatology and Plastic Surgery offer 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; 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 ultrasound 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.

Dr. Humble ensures that no matter which office a patient chooses, they will receive the same quality of care. Both practices feature high-quality concierge care, a warm and dedicated staff and the latest in technology and procedures, and the Sugar Land office boasts an on-site operating room.

At his Katy office, Dr. Humble offers new options for his patients, such as new state-of-the-art lasers used to improve skin texture, remove dark spots and tattoos and hair reduction. The location is led by Dr. Filiberto Cedeno Laurent, an Ivy-League trained and board certified dermatologist with extensive expertise in cutaneous oncology (skin cancer), complex medical, surgical and cosmetic dermatology.  With a doctorate degree in Immunology from Harvard Medical School, Dr. Cedeno trained as a dermatologist at the University of Pennsylvania, the oldest and one of the most prestigious dermatology departments in the United States. He completed a one-year fellowship in cutaneous oncology and has concentrated his latest efforts in the field of procedural and cosmetic dermatology. Having received numerous national and international awards, Dr. Cedeno’s research has been presented in numerous conferences around the world, and his work has been cited by nearly 500 scientific publications.

“As a plastic surgeon who focuses on cosmetic issues, I have had a multitude of patients ask about skin care, and to meet this need, we are fortunate to have a highly trained professional in Dr. Cedeno” said Dr. Humble. “It makes sense to keep all patients in house and treat them under one practice. It is a synergistic partnership where we can treat patients in unison to get optimal cosmetic results.”

Fortunately for patients, Dr. Cedeno is available at both the Katy and Sugar Land locations, and he said he has a deep-rooted interest in dermatology because he sees “a significant number of different conditions and helping people makes his day enjoyable.  I love sharing my knowledge to change people’s lives; I love boosting people’s self-confidence,” he shared. “If you feel well and look well, everything becomes simpler in your life.”

Dr. Cedeno accepts several insurance plans, and due to his area of expertise in treating the largest organ of the body, he has copious experience in healing a variety of skin conditions in both children and adults. “We provide pediatric dermatology and can examine birth marks, neonatal acne, moles and warts,” he said. “Plus, we also offer medical dermatology, like inflammatory, infectious and auto immune conditions, skin cancer assessments and cosmetic dermatology.”

Keeping in line with Dr. Humble’s patient care philosophy, Dr. Cedeno strives to make sure his interaction with patients is always personable and personalized. “I work very closely with each patient to provide the safest, most informed and best treatment for each individual need.  My number one goal is to make them comfortable, to let them know they are being listened to and to ensure them they will be part of the team that will come up with treatment. I don’t make decisions in a vertical way; I always consider my patient’s input as important.”

A Passion for People

What shines about Sugar Land Face and Body Plastic Surgery and Houston Dermatology and Plastic Surgery is the passion for the people under their care. Dr. Humble believes the beautification process must be a comfortable one. When a patient has a consultation, Dr. Humble ensures it feels like conversing with a longtime friend. He considers more than the physical appearance of his patients; he takes into account if they are an outdoors type of person, their health, medical history and if they are looking for corrective or preventative care.  “I take care of my patients as if they were family,” said Dr. Humble. “They get my cell phone number, and I am available 24/7. I even respond when I am on vacation, because I am committed to my patients and my practice.”

Following a consultation, Dr. Humble will not only discuss a patient’s surgical options, he will create an individualized surgical plan because he knows that every body is different and must be treated as such.  He never pushes a procedure on a patient; he listens to what he or she wants before offering options, whether it be a surgical or non-surgical one.

“We treat all patients equally with dignity and respect, and ensure that they have all of their questions answered,” Dr. Humble said. “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.”
