Reconstructive Surgery Procedures


Burn Reconstruction in Sugar Land, TX 

The effects of a burn can be debilitating, and can have considerable consequences on a burn victim’s life. Dr. Stapenhorst offers a number of Burn Reconstruction procedures for injuries ranging from mild to severe burns. Among those procedures, the most recognizable is the use of skin grafts. During such a procedure, skin is transferred from an uninjured part of the body to the burn area, where it is attached and dressed. Over time, the body will begin to rebuild, connecting the skin graft to the skin in the affected area. Depending on the severity of the burn, the healing process can take anywhere from two weeks to a few months.

Ear Deformity Surgery in Sugar Land, TX 

Ear deformities such as protruding ears or ear microtia can affect a child’s confidence and hearing ability. Dr. Stapenhorst offers Ear Deformity Surgery to correct these issues while maintaining a natural appearance. The procedures are performed by reshaping the existing cartilage and tissue for protruding ears; or, in the case of ear microtia, using a series of corrective surgeries over a period of two years.

Skin Cancer in Sugar Land, TX 

Skin Cancer is a serious condition often caused by exposure to ultraviolet light from the sun. If gone untreated, skin cancer may cause tumors that can spread to surrounding tissue and even to internal organs, resulting in disfigurement and possibly death. Dr. Stapenhorst offers treatment for skin cancer and encourages the community to wear sunscreen to protect themselves from the sun’s harsh rays.

Breast Reconstruction in Sugar Land, TX 

While a mastectomy can save a woman’s life, it can have a negative effect on her self-esteem. Dr. Stapenhorst offers Breast Reconstruction surgery to cancer survivors for a renewed look and a restored sense of confidence. While each case is different, the overall goal of Breast Reconstruction is to replace the breast tissue that was removed during the mastectomy using implants or the body’s own tissue.

Dear Patients,

I am announcing the closure of my practice, Signature Plastic Surgery. Effective December 31, 2022, I
will be moving on to a new practice opportunity. I have enjoyed serving the people of Sugar Land since
2008. This has been a difficult decision for me to make, but I am looking forward to the new
opportunity, and I know that I will look back fondly on the past 14 years.
