Dr. Henry Mentz

Dr. Henry Mentz is a nationally and internationally respected plastic surgeon who is consistently recognized as a top doctor in both local and national publications because of his excellence as a surgeon and the innovative procedures and techniques he has introduced to the field of aesthetic plastic surgery. Originally from Louisiana, he currently practices in Houston, Texas at The Aesthetic Center for Plastic Surgery, the largest private aesthetic surgery center in Texas.

In a Goldline Research report published in Forbes magazine, Dr. Mentz was cited as a leading plastic surgeon in the United States. And his peers in the medical community have repeatedly nominated him in H-Texas® Magazine as one of the selected “Top Docs” to whom they would send family members and friends.

As the nation’s first triple-board certified surgeon, Dr. Mentz actively researches technology that allows him to provide patients with the best results for their appearance, safety, and comfort. Drawing upon his specialized training in facial plastic surgery, he continually applies and refines the most advanced facial rejuvenation techniques to restore a youthful and natural-looking appearance to the face. He forged new ground in the art of liposculpture as the first to perform the Abdominal Etching® and Pectoral Etching® procedures to give the abdominal and pectoral muscles a more defined, athletic appearance. And he has implemented strategies to provide both a more comfortable tummy tuck recovery and to improve safety in the operating room. His devotion to detail and quest for researching and applying the most advanced techniques have led him to become a surgeon who is not only respected nationally, but one who is beloved by his patients for his dedication to their care.


Dr. Mentz has dedicated the last 25 years of his career in medicine to the art and science of aesthetic plastic surgery.

When Dr. Mentz was completing his general surgery residency, he recognized that his skill and interest drew him to cosmetic plastic and reconstructive work. He enjoyed the attention to detail and the challenges presented by each individual case in facial plastic surgery. He decided to pursue cosmetic surgery as a specialty and entered the plastic surgery fellowship that brought him to Houston.

At the time, there were few programs in the nation with a concentration in aesthetic plastic surgery. Dr. Mentz feels fortunate to have learned from the most innovative and experienced aesthetic surgeons in the nation.

After more than two decades in private practice, Dr. Mentz has become keenly aware that aesthetic surgery is much more than a physical change. It is about restoring the body, mind and spirit so that patients can approach the next chapter of life with confidence. He has the blessing of partnering with patients and joining them on their journey.

Dr. Mentz’s goal is to find new ways to make plastic surgery better, safer, and more comfortable for his patients and aesthetic patients all over the world through continued thought and innovation.
His expertise in aesthetic surgery and research has attracted the attention of plastic surgeons around the world and allowed for the growing of specialized aesthetic practices, pioneering private research, and improving the experience for each patient. Dr. Mentz has enjoyed sharing these visions and innovations on podiums in more than 12 countries.
