In Dr. Steely’s Own WordsHouston, Texas plastic surgeon

I understand that during the consultation and examination, you may feel apprehensive, but be assured that I will do my very best to make you feel as comfortable as possible. Be confident too that I will listen very closely to what you have on your mind. Do not expect to be pressured. Take as long as you need during the consultation. It is important to me that you understand all aspects of your procedure. Afterwards, if you have any questions about your procedure, you can phone or email me as often as you wish.

I stress aesthetic proportion over absolute size because I believe beauty is all about balance and the relationship of each part to the whole. As each person is unique, so every cosmetic solution I suggest is unique. I do not subscribe to a cookie cutter approach.

I will provide you with comprehensive instructions for a trouble-free recovery. After surgery, I want you to visit me for multiple follow-ups to make sure that your recovery is progressing as planned.

Let me bring out your best proportions. Please call or email me for your plastic surgery needs. I look forward to seeing you.
