This content was provided by Dr. Lou "Dr. Derek Lou is a plastic surgeon with extensive training in both cosmetic and reconstructive surgery. He established a practice at the Memorial Hermann Memorial City Hospital in 2007 where he treats patients with a wide array of issues – from breast reconstruction and augmentation to body contouring and hand surgery.

He earned a degree in biology from Harvard University in 1995 and graduated from University of Texas Southwestern Medical School in 1999. He continued his medical training at Indiana University with a residency in general surgery and a fellowship in plastic surgery, which he completed in 2007. He is an active member of the American Society of Plastic Surgery, and is board certified by the American Board of Plastic Surgery"
This content was provided by Dr. Lou "As a board-certified plastic surgeon in Houston, Texas, it is my singular goal to bring the benefits of plastic surgery to those who need it, and contrary to what you may have seen or heard, it can be for almost everyone.
At first glance, plastic surgery may seem complicated, confusing, and mysterious. As a conscientious surgeon, my role is to help you understand whatever it is that you may need or want and whatever solutions that the art of plastic surgery may provide from breast augmentation, breast reconstructive surgery, to liposuction —in a way that makes sense and in a language that you understand.
There are many plastic surgeons to choose from, and before settling on one, I believe it is critical that you should feel comfortable with both their skills and the way they treat you. I'm confident that after a visit to my office, you will not need to travel any further.It is the ability to help people feel better about themselves that drew me to a career in plastic surgery. "
