Dr. Basu Discusses His Award-Winning Mommy Makeovers with PSP: “Curves Are In”

Dr. Bob Basu for Plastic Surgery Practice

PLASTIC SURGEON BOB BASU, MD, TALKS ABOUT THE EVOLUTION OF THE MOMMY MAKEOVER AND WHAT SETS HIS PRACTICE APART.

By Steven Martinez for plasticsurgerypractice.com

Bob Basu, MD, MBA, MPH, FACS, is the founder and managing partner of Basu Center for Aesthetics and Plastic Surgery in Houston, Texas.

Basu is a nationally recognized expert in plastic surgery. He has been recognized for his work in Newsweek, the Houston Chronicle, and Texas Monthly. He served on the boards of the American Association for Accreditation of Ambulatory Surgery Facilities (AAAASF) and the American Society of Plastic Surgeons (ASPS).

He is currently the ASPS board vice president of finance and treasurer and has co-written a textbook on breast augmentation.

It’s hard to imagine then that Basu might never have become a plastic surgeon at all.

ATTENTION TO DETAIL

Basu’s first inkling that he might make a good plastic surgeon came during his residency in general surgery. Originally planning on becoming a cardiothoracic surgeon, his chief resident looked over his shoulder one day while Basu was closing up a patient and noticed the unusual amount of care he took.

“He saw that I took pride in how I closed the incisions in general surgery cases, and he told me, ‘You’re going into plastic surgery,’” says Basu. “I looked at him like, ‘what are you talking about? I want to be a cardiothoracic surgeon.’ No, he said, ‘you’re enjoying this closure and making it look good too much. You’re going into plastic surgery.’”

That moment ended up being predictive of the future, and Basu subsequently discovered his love for plastic surgery. He enjoyed the challenge of doing a pristine anatomic procedure that had to be functionally effective and look great.

“What drew me to aesthetic plastic surgery is the additional challenge of seeing your results right away and creating things that are balanced and beautiful,” says Basu. “I really enjoy that every day.”

The Houston Chronicle declared Basu’s practice the best place to get a mommy makeover earlier this year. So, what exactly makes an award-winning mommy makeover?

WHAT MAKES AN AWARD-WINNING MOMMY MAKEOVER

Basu believes that his extensive experience in complex breast surgery, coupled with the sheer number of mommy makeovers he has done in his career, has driven the accolades he’s received.
