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.

At the Smith Cosmetic Surgery Center, Dr. Kevin Smith??a physician with board certifications in otolaryngology as well as plastic and reconstructive surgery??helps his patients live happier and healthier lives by using advanced medical procedures to either alleviate pain or refine individuals' appearances. Dr. Smith's surgical methods can help accentuate a person's natural features by reshaping noses, ears, foreheads, eyelids, or hairstyles. Additionally, these surgeries can correct the structural issues that antagonize conditions such as sleep apnea, chronic sinus pressure, or migraine headaches. Not every appointment has to include surgery, though. The practice also offers noninvasive treatments that use a cosmetic laser system to improve the skin's overall tone and texture.
