Dr. Henry Mentz
Dr. Henry Mentz is an internationally-respected plastic surgeon who holds the distinctive honor of being the nation’s first triple board certified plastic surgeon. He blends the specific technique and skills of his board certifications in facial plastic and reconstructive surgery, plastic surgery, and head and neck surgery to achieve remarkable, comprehensive, and natural-looking results. Dr. Mentz has received numerous awards and global recognition for his surgical excellence and his groundbreaking contributions to the field of aesthetic plastic surgery.
When Dr. Mentz was completing his general surgery residency, he recognized that his skill and interest drew him to faces. He enjoyed the attention to detail required of facial surgery and the challenges presented by each individual face. After a residency in Otolaryngology (ear, nose and throat) at Tulane, Dr. Mentz chose to further specialize in Facial Plastic & Reconstructive Surgery with a three-year residency at St. Joseph Hospital in Houston.
“There were very few programs in the nation doing solely facial plastic surgery, so I was fortunate to learn under the most innovative and experienced doctors in the field,” Mentz says. While Dr. Mentz was at St. Joseph Hospital, a major advance in facial surgery emerged known as the deep tissue facelift. For decades prior, facelifts were done by pulling up only the skin and relying on it to anchor and hold up the face and underlying tissue. The result was an unnaturally tight face that wouldn’t last over time.
Drawing upon his extensive training in facial plastic surgery, Dr. Mentz uses a detailed and comprehensive approach to restore a youthful, fresh appearance to the face. His method combines advanced lifting and tightening techniques with volume restoration to rebuild the youthful contours of the face through the use of stem-cell enriched fat grafts. In his 25 years of professional facial plastic and reconstructive surgery, Dr. Mentz has also been part of research and instruction for two other big changes in facial rejuvenation. Through the use of cosmetic fillers and laser resurfacing treatments, physicians are now able to give their patients a comprehensive solution to the aging face.
Having completed more than one thousand facelifts in his 25 years of professional practice, it’s no wonder that patients and medical professionals across the country consider him an expert in facial rejuvenation. Today, he performs about 120 facelifts a year; that’s a facelift for every day that he operates. With experience like that, it is easy to see why so many patients confidently choose Dr. Henry Mentz and see excellent results.
"Overcorrection and Slanted Eye from Unecessary Canthopexy on Right Eye - Houston, TX - Dr. Mentz is a wonderful plastic surgeon and very friendly and compassionate doctor. He is a professional who strives to make continious improvements and feels very conected to his patients. His facility is luxerious, comfortable, and welcoming. - - My girlfriend had upper and lower bleph and canthopexy performed on both eyes 4 weeks ago. She mistakingly, requested to have both eyes performed with canthopexy, when she only needed her left eye fixed. The PS created an incision from her brow to the bottom of her eye (about 2.5 inches long) to take skin up to make room for the unnecessary canthopexy. Now her right eye is slanted.The cons were that a canthopexy surgery was performed when the PS said only the left eye needed, but since she insisted before surgery, both eyes had canthopexy, and her right eye had excess skin removed to slant the eye up.Would skin grafting and a canthopexy release restore her right eye to what it would looked like had this not happened?"
