The category of Best Single Physician Practice was by far the largest category for nominees, which make choosing just one winner difficult. According to Medesthetics, Vitenas Cosmetic Surgery stood out among the nominees thanks to the long career of its founder, Paul Vitenas, MD, and the continued growth and transformation of his private aesthetic practice. After completing his cosmetic surgery residency at Tulane University, Dr. Vitenas completed multiple fellowships in craniofacial and maxillofacial surgery with Tony Wolf, MD, Paul Tessier, MD, and Ralph Millard, MD.
Among Dr. Vitenas' many awards, he is a Castle Connolly Top Doc, a Vital's Patient Choice Award winner and is listed among America's Top Plastic Surgeons by Consumer Reports. But what is really remarkable and exciting is his continual growth. He has expanded his facility three times, most recently to a free-standing, three-story building Houston complete with a surgical center; overnight suites; esthetic, laser and injectable services; and a robust retail skincare center.
