Dr. Roth's bio

This content was provided by Dr. Roth "Dr. Forrest Roth, a graduate of Baylor College of Medicine in Plastic and Reconstructive Surgery, is proud to have met the challenges of one of the country's most prestigious and comprehensive medical programs. He is Board Certified by the American Board of Plastic Surgery. His new practice will bear testimony to his commitment to providing the latest innovations and state of the art technology to his patients. "Much of what we learned was not available 10 years ago so having trained in this era the patients will surely benefit. Having access to MD Anderson, Texas Children's Hospital, and the Texas Medical Center I have been able to absorb a vigorous curriculum, from working in the emergency room to reconstruction and ultimately cosmetic surgery." Dr. Roth trained in both arenas—reconstruction and aesthetics and performs a wide spectrum of procedures on an even broader demographic. He is adept at treating cancer, burns, trauma and cosmetic concerns from children to middle age and older populations. "Every patient is different, and even the same procedure will be different depending upon the patient." Dr. Roth feels the principles he uses in reconstruction have made him a better cosmetic surgeon. "There is a challenging anatomical expertise expected from a reconstructive surgeon. When you pair the knowledge of the structure and subtleties of the human form with an eye for aesthetics you have the best of both realms." Although reconstruction and cosmetic surgery are sometimes discussed separately from one another, Dr. Roth does not make the same distinction. "Every reconstruction should be viewed with an eye toward aesthetics and every aesthetic surgery is improved by using the anatomical expertise of reconstructive training." A FRESH APPROACH… Dr. Roth subscribes to a simple philosophy and approach when it comes to plastic surgery and treating patients. "The most important thing is every patient is different and accordingly has different needs. My philosophy overall is to treat them in a manner that is truly customized." While every patient is looked upon as an individual, he feels the same way about reconstructive and cosmetic patients. "Although cosmetic patients are elective surgery candidates, reconstructive patients want to look and feel better about their appearance, too. I treat both with the same degree of empathy and concern." Dr. Roth works hard to be sure every patient knows he is a person, a physician and then a plastic surgeon—in that order. "I am compassionate, personable and approachable and not at all intimidating. I pride myself on my availability and focus so the patient knows I am there for them alone." Described as being straightforward and open, Dr. Roth listens carefully to hear things that perhaps are being said between the lines to fully understand the patient's concerns. His friendly, easy going and relaxed attitude puts even the most anxious patients at ease. During a consultation, there is plenty time for conversation. "I feel the best education is dependent upon the quality of the dialogue because it's that special time getting to know each other that creates the critical bond between surgeon and patient." Dr. Roth's website has also been carefully designed to communicate information prospective patients need to know. Dr. Roth feels strongly that the role of a plastic surgeon is starting to evolve. "Especially as one approaches middle age, having a plastic surgeon should be as valuable a part of your healthcare as having an internist to help anticipate concerns about aging." And what does he see on the horizon that he's excited about? "We are at the tipping point of exponential change." He cites medical technology, product development in terms of fillers and implants, and non-surgical rejuvenation as part of the wave that will continue to change the complexion of the specialty."

Dr. Roth is not an ENT. He is not facial board certified. He should never have taken on my case. I am botched by him and he doesn’t want to refund me. Also it’s been already 6 months. My nose is freezing and bright purple everyday. It itches constantly on the right side because it is scarred and...more

I've waited over a year to write this review because I sincerely wanted to give my skin a fair chance to heal. I visited Roth's office for botox several times, which went fine. Katy suggested an IPL to help lighten my freckles & melasma, which I had gotten as a side effect of birth control a couple...more

IPL is not contraindicated for melasma. Dermatol Surg. 2004;30(9):1196. IPL is a safe and effective treatment for refractory melasma... with minimal side effects. Aesthetic Plast Surg. 2010;34(4):486. IPL stands out as an effective tool in the treatment and healing of melasma, with a very low risk of complications and an excellent satisfaction. Dermatol Surg. 2008;34(5):693. IPL treatment is a good option for patients with melasma. Adverse actions were minimal and acceptable.
