Houston Patient Discusses Her Experience With Combination Plastic Surgery

Dr. Sam M. Sukkar Helps One Patient Exceed Her Original Expectations by Combining Breast Reduction, Phenol Peel, and Tummy Tuck Procedures to Yield a Total Body Rejuvenation

HOUSTON, TX--(Marketwired - Aug 8, 2013) - Dr. Sam M. Sukkar, a board-certified plastic surgeon in Houston, places a heavy emphasis on patient education to help ensure that his patients make informed decisions that yield results meeting or exceeding their cosmetic goals. At Sukkar Aesthetic Plastic Surgery & Medical Spa, patients can choose among a wide array of surgical and non-surgical procedures of the breasts, body, face, and skin to pursue their aesthetic desires. Recently, one of Dr. Sukkar's breast reduction patients decided to also undergo a tummy tuck and phenol peel in order to achieve a more complete body rejuvenation.

Dr. Sukkar's patient, Pauline, said that at the age of 61, "the aging process and the loss of skin elasticity" were the main reasons she initially sought out a breast reduction surgeon, but also noted, "All my life I have had a history of gaining and losing weight." Though she knew she wanted a breast reduction, she said, "After talking with the cosmetic coordinator I made a decision to have the tummy tuck and phenol peel."

Pauline initially began her search for a plastic surgeon by speaking with a friend who had a breast reduction performed by Dr. Sukkar. Although Pauline also conducted her own research on various plastic surgeons in the area, she eventually decided on Dr. Sukkar, due in large part to her friend's referral. Pauline reported that her friend "was extremely excited about the results of her surgery and how helpful and caring Dr. Sukkar and his staff were with her during the whole process." After meeting Dr. Sukkar and his team, she went on to say, "I knew this was the team of medical professionals I could trust to do my surgery successfully with the results I expected."

During the consultation process for certain procedures, Dr. Sukkar uses Vectra® 3D imaging technology to allow his Houston plastic surgery patients to see a projected image of potential results before they make a final decision. According to Pauline, the ability to visualize the final results in conjunction with her comfort level and confidence in the surgical team were the main factors in her decision-making process. She added, "I chose Dr. Sukkar because of his apparent dedication to providing his patients with results over and beyond their expectations."

When asked to comment about her results, Pauline responds, "I feel absolutely fantastic." Pauline, who has had many major serious surgeries in the past, including three total right-hip replacements in the past 10-12 years, says, "I could not have asked for a better group of medical professionals to be by my side during such a dramatic procedure."
