Meet Dr. Correa
Hello and thank you for visiting The Woodlands Plastic Surgery. My name is Dr. Correa, and I am a fully trained plastic surgeon who is Board-Certified by the American Board of Plastic Surgery.
I grew up in Southern California, where I did my undergraduate education in the beautiful city of Santa Barbara at the University of California, where I studied Piano and Psychology. After much hard work, I was accepted into one of the best medical schools in the country—the prestigious UCLA School of Medicine. While there I developed an interest in surgery early on and after exploring the many wonderful surgical fields, my passion thankfully found its way into the best one: plastic surgery.
After going through the rigorous process of matching into one of the most competitive surgical specialties, I had the added good fortune of matching into one of the most prestigious and sought-after plastic surgery programs in the country: Baylor College of Medicine.
I developed a passion for plastic surgery of the face and breast as well as extensive training in plastic surgery of the body.Due to the high volume of cases in the Texas Medical Center, which is the largest medical center in the world, I was able to not only far exceed the training numbers required, but also to tailor my education to get extra training in my specific areas of interest.
Additionally, I was also able to participate in cutting-edge research and publish papers in peer-reviewed National and International Plastic Surgery Journals, as well as present this research in local, national, and international plastic surgery meetings. During my time as Chief Resident at Baylor, I was also recognized and awarded the Gold Humanism Award which is a peer-nominated award for demonstrating exceptionally compassionate patient care, as well as the Baron Hardy Award for Outstanding Academic Performance.
In spite of my great effort to participate in high-level academic endeavors and remain on the cutting edge of surgical techniques and research, the greatest joy has always come from a smiling patient. No matter how many hours I had to spend in surgery or what personal sacrifices I had to make to accomplish my patient’s goals, nothing makes me feel more gratitude and satisfaction than being in a follow-up clinic with happy patients and good outcomes.
It is my hope that within this website you will become familiar with the types of services and treatment you can expect at The Woodlands Plastic Surgery, as well as the compassionate care and attention to detail that you deserve—starting with your first phone call.
Thanks for stopping by,

dr. correa’s PHILOSOPHY
The ‘best plastic surgeon’ is the one that can accomplish your goals, but equally importantly, it is the one you have confidence in. Although assuring your surgeon has the appropriate training is absolutely essential, the confidence I speak of rarely comes solely from a resume. Instead, it is a byproduct of the relationship that we develop as patient and surgeon during the consultation process. If you do not have confidence in your surgeon by the end of the consultation process, it is best to keep looking until you find the surgeon that is right for you.
There are many personal and professional characteristics that are essential for delivering the best plastic surgical care possible – integrity, honesty, respect, professionalism, education, surgical training, attention to detail, technical expertise, anatomic and surgical knowledge, academic knowledge; the list goes on.
However, it is my view that all of these traits have a singular intersection: communication. It is only through a skillfully directed consultation that we can develop the rapport and understanding which is essential for creating the confidence that we are on the path toward a gratifying result for both patient and surgeon.
Plastic surgery is a unique field of medicine in that it is the only field of surgery where we have the opportunity to help people on an almost subconscious level. The vast majority of patients desire a natural result, as do the vast majority of plastic surgeons. A natural result is one that people don’t perceive as being surgically or artificially altered, and one that ‘fits’ with the patient as a whole.
With that being said, most patients present because they feel that there already is a part that does not fit with their identity of themselves, that there is an imbalance between parts of their body or face. This lack of balance is typically due to a part that needs to be either returned or adjusted to a location or shape that encourages balance and harmony. For some people, this is the nose they were born with, and for others, it is the body they received after childbirth. Either way, it represents an aberration from their sense of self.
There is a dynamic that exists between the components of one’s face, as well as the shape of one’s body; each needs to ‘fit’ and complement the other. Due to my extensive training in all aspects of plastic surgery from head-to-toe, I feel I have an exceptional understanding of this dynamic and that I understand it as well as anyone else, and better than many. I have seen what can happen when this balance is upset, and restoring this balance is my goal.
The body has complementary aspects and just as in physics, for every action, there is a reaction. Balance is obtained when one can preserve what is good and desirable, and re-shape what is not; this is the best way for natural results to occur.
However, variety truly is the spice of life and there are beautiful people in all cultures, genders, and age groups. Beauty takes many forms and it is my job to understand your vision of beauty—your aesthetic—to facilitate a result that is consistent with this vision. It is not my job (nor my desire) to force upon you my vision of what I think is beautiful.
Through the consultation process, we will reach an agreement on a plan to achieve your goals, and then make a social contract to trust each other to uphold our roles: I will be the best surgeon I can be, and you will be the best patient you can be. It is only with this mutual understanding, respect, and trust that we can have the confidence that you will have the best possible outcome

Dr. Correa quoted for his support of the upcoming Aesthetic Meeting 2015:
“It was both inspiring and humbling to hear panels of truly world-renowned surgeons convincingly discuss different ways of tackling the same case.”

Wonderful Surgeon and Team!
Dr. Correa and his team are amazing. They are so kind and patient. Dr. Correa goes out of his way to achieve the best results for you. He is also very honest about what to expect. He never makes you feel rushed if you have questions. With his talent he could easily intimidate or make a person wanting to fix flaws self conscious but he does not. Quite the opposite, he is most calming. Gabrielle and Rochelle are so helpful and sweet, if they have a bad day, you never know it. They make everything very easy and clear. I researched al LOT of Dr’s and went through photos of work for days. Dr. Correa’s stood out as the best and I am so glad I chose him to do my procedure. Totally worth it and I would trust and recommend he and his team to anyone that listens.
I am so happy that I trusted Dr. Correa
Before choosing dr Correa, I went to see a very well known PS that spent no more than 5 minutes with me during my first appointment. That was not a good experience, as I felt just like a number and I’m glad I left that place quickly. Then, decided to make an appointment with Dr Correa. (Best decision EVER!) During the appointment I was actually surprised about how dr Correa took his time to go over all my questions , what my goal was and genuinely listened my concern. I was very hesitant to do surgery because of my petit frame. I relied upon Dr. Correa to give me his honest opinion on what would look the best/most natural with my body type and I am so happy that I trusted him and went with his suggestion. He is an expert on proportion and natural appearance!
My breasts look so natural and so proportional to my body. He is an artist!
Also, I was very impressed with his post-op care. He called to check how I was doing and quickly texted me back anytime I had any questions or concerns. His staff was very professional and always making me feel welcome. I urge anyone who wants breasts that look natural to their body to fully trust him and his expertise.
