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.
"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?"
