Dr. Henry Mentz
Dr. Henry A. Mentz received his Doctorate of Medicine from Louisiana State University Medical School. After completing the General Surgery program at the Ochsner Foundation of New Orleans, he went on to complete the Otolaryngology program at Tulane University School of Medicine. He followed this with specialized training in Plastic and Reconstructive Surgery at St. Joseph in Houston.
Dr. Mentz has contributed so much to male cosmetic surgery in his career. With over 150 publications and presentations in cosmetic surgery, his outstanding credentials and his passion for improvement have set Dr. Mentz apart as one of Houston’s top plastic surgeons. Since introducing Abdominal Etching in 1993, Dr. Mentz has also developed a technique called Pectoral Etching that he pairs with Abdominal Etching to give muscular definition to the male chest. More recently, Dr. Mentz introduced soft etching, which is a moderate version of Ab Etching and abdominal liposuction, used to give muscle definition for females and less muscular men. Additionally, Dr. Mentz has introduced a safe, efficient method of treating gynecomastia, the condition of excess breast tissue in males. His short scar gynecomastia treatment removes the hardened glandular tissue and contours the male chest to keep it in harmony with the rest of the body.
