Dr. Carpin is board certified by the American Board of Plastic Surgery. She was specially trained in plastic surgery, aesthetic surgery, and reconstructive surgery.

Dr. Carpin Q and A:

What makes you unique as a plastic surgeon?
Being both female and a plastic surgeon, I tend to be more empathetic and spend more time with my patients. You will spend the most time with ME during your consultation, surgery and post-operative care, compared to other surgeons. I am always accessible to my patients after surgery. Finally, I also offer comprehensive plastic surgery. My patients can return to me year after year, to serve their needs.
How many years of plastic surgery training have you had?
I attended a six-year integrated Plastic Surgery residency at the University of Texas Medical Branch. During my training, I worked with over forty plastic surgeons across the country and learned extensive cosmetic and reconstructive techniques. I further continue my education with yearly attendance to medical conferences.
What is the most common plastic surgery procedure that you perform?
I commonly perform breast and body aesthetic surgery and breast reconstruction. I also perform facial procedures, fillers, botox and minimal invasive procedures.
What is recovery like after plastic surgery?
Recovery varies for each patient, and differs for each surgical procedure. In general, most patients are able to return to work in one week. Full recovery and return to a normal exercise routine usually takes four to six weeks. I see patients regularly after their procedure to monitor the healing process and ensure optimal results.
What is your favorite plastic surgery to perform?
What I love about plastic surgery is that I can improve someone from head to toe. As a plastic surgeon, I am trained to be able to reconstruct or restore any part of the body. I truly enjoy performing all the different types of surgery. I love the variety plastic surgery offers, and the creativity each surgery offers.
What areas do you serve in Texas?
I am based out of Houston TX, but I accept plastic surgery patients from all over! Most of my patients come from Houston, League City, Clear Lake, Friendswood, Pasedena, Kemah, Seabrook and Galveston. If you are looking for a plastic surgeon but aren’t sure where to start, I encourage you to call my office to set up a consultation.
Where do you perform your plastic surgery procedures?
I perform my surgeries at both hospitals and ambulatory surgical centers. The facilities are maintained at the highest standards of care. They include nurses and physicians who are well trained and prepared to perform surgical procedures and recover patients, optimizing patient safety and comfort. For minor procedures, I have a procedure room in my office where I can administer local anesthesia.
What type of anesthesia do you use during surgery, and who will provide it?
My major surgical procedures are performed at both hospitals and ambulatory surgical centers. The facilities are maintained at the highest standards of care. During surgery, anesthesia is performed by board certified Anesthesiologists and Nurse Anesthetists, ensuring the highest level of safety for my patients. Anesthesia options include general and deep sedation, while optimizing patient comfort and safety. For minor procedures, I can offer the patient an awake procedure with a local anesthetic in my office procedure room.
