5 out of 5 stars Breast Implants
Dr. Vitenas is so nice and he knows what he is doing! Lindsey was so sweet and amazing working with me and helping me decide on the size I want! update to after the surgery (at 6 weeks) I love my results so much! Dr. Vitenas did such a great job and when I would go back for him to see how they're doing it was quick but I didn't mind it was just a check up to see how they're doing. But he is honestly magical. He is very good at what he does! I would recommend him to everybody! My mom was even thinking about getting something done with the facility. I love my results so much from 32A to now a good full C cup, so natural looking... Just what I was wanting!

5 out of 5 stars CoolSculpting
I am petite, size 0, exercise daily, eat healthy, generally toned in most areas except that pooch in the lower abdomen from having kids. I decided to do Coolsculpting after consulting with two cosmetic surgeons. I was told I am a great candidate for CS though a mini tummy tuck would give me the best results for a washboard look abs. I am fine with a bit of excess skin, I just need the...
5 out of 5 stars Breast Augmentation
Wonderful from start to finish. Cheryl was my patient coordinator and made me feel comfortable from the second I met her. I appreciated how she answered many of my questions over the phone even before I went in for the consultation, including giving me prices for the different surgeries I may need (augmentation or mastopexy with augmentation). I felt the attention Cheryl and Dr. Vitenas gave me during my consultation was exceptional. It was a comfortable environment and I really felt listened too. Dr. Vitenas even participated when I tried on different sized implants. After the consultation Cheryl and I had a pretty long chat with her about everything and she patiently answered more of my questions. Dr. Vitenas and his team were the perfect fit for me and I couldn't be happier with my results.
My practice is dedicated to the Fine Art of Natural Cosmetic Surgery. As the founder of Vitenas Cosmetic Surgery, the Houston Surgery Center, and Mirror Mirror Beauty Boutique, I strive to bring my patients natural looking results with the safest and most advanced aesthetic procedures available.
