Board-certified plastic surgeon, Dr. Abdel Kader Fustok, is a worldly man. A Syrian native, the doctor began an educational journey in 1962 that brought him from Lebanon to France, but it wasn't until after receiving his medical degree in the early 1980s that Dr. Fustok decided to take one more trip across the world. His final destination: Houston. Since 1982, Dr. Fustok—a member of the Texas Medical Association and Rotary International Health Foundation—has contoured bodies at his private plastic-surgery practice, Institute of Cosmetic Surgery. But to stay ahead of the beauty curve, Dr. Fustok relies on noninvasive med-spa treatments, such as laser skin resurfacing and dermal fillers. Outside the office, the doctor's personal publications enlighten the medical world on advanced breast-reconstruction techniques, hair-replacement surgery, and how to outsmart Father Time with a stopwatch and blindfold.
Utopia Plastic Surgery and MedSpa's Dr. Franklin Rose has displayed his expertise on Dr. Phil and MTV's I Want a Famous Face. At his clinic, the doctor enhances clients' aesthetic appeal and reverses the aging process with advanced medical and cosmetic treatments. Along with a team of aestheticians, the doctor helps smooth complexions with classic facials and advanced services such as infrared light treatments, which stimulate the production of collagen deep within the skin to reduce the appearance of wrinkles. The skilled technicians can also use dermal fillers and Botox to relax wrinkles and achieve smoother eyes, foreheads, and mouths.
Medical Doctor is the most recognizable of Michel Siegel's titles, but it doesn't describe all of the expertise he possesses. He also holds double board certification as a facial plastic and reconstructive surgeon and an otolaryngologist, a surgeon who works on the head and neck. At his surgical practice, he works exclusively on faces, priding himself on providing natural-looking results to his patients. There, he and his staff also provide B12 injections, laser hair removal treatments, skin peels, face lifts, and free smiles.

Dr. Victor Atun is a board-certified plastic surgeon who describes himself as, "devoted to rejuvenating and enhancing your natural beauty." The goal of Dr. Atun and his staff is never to create a drastically different face, body, or soul-music collection. Rather, their philosophy is based in bringing patients' own unique beauty to the surface by touching up existing features. In addition to surgeries, the spa performs laser hair removal and fosters aesthetics with facials of varying degrees of intensiveness.
After graduating with honors from medical school, Dr. Atun left his native Lima, Peru to complete for internships and residencies in Florida and Ohio. Since then, the surgeon has practiced a variety of medical disciplines in a variety of states and countries, finally opening his own cosmetic practice in 2000. Though he's settled in Sugar Land, Dr. Atun regularly returns to Peru and Ecuador on medical missions. Emulating his dedication, the whole team attends professional lectures and conferences to let their skills and knowledge grow with their field.
