As the nation’s first triple board certified plastic surgeon, Dr. Henry Mentz is respected nationwide for his introduction of innovative breast enhancement, facial rejuvenation, and body contouring techniques. He received the unique and valuable privilege to train with the inventors of breast implants, an experience which provided him with insights into managing the various facets and potential complexities of breast augmentation surgery.
In collaboration with his colleagues at The Aesthetic Center for Plastic Surgery in Houston, Texas, Dr. Mentz developed an innovative new technique to improve the results and safety of combining breast augmentation with breast lift surgery.
To diminish the shoulder grooves created by tight bra straps, a characteristic that women with large breasts commonly experience, Dr. Mentz introduced a fat grafting technique to fill in the indentions so that strapless dresses, tops, and swimsuits can be worn more confidently. The Ideal Breast Implant is currently being studied in clinical trials to determine whether it will gain approval from the United States Food and Drug Administration. This implant combines what are considered to be the best respective features of saline and silicone implants. Consisting of a series of implant shells that are nested together, this saline-filled implant was designed to mimic the natural look and feel of silicone implants. Dr. Mentz was one of a select group of surgeons chosen to participate in clinical trials based upon his experience and his excellence as a surgeon.
