"Dr. Ellsworth performed a Flap surgical procedure on me. I had a stage 4 isheal pressure ulcer that required removal of tissue to the bone. I then had to lay on my side for 5 weeks in an LTAC facility.Dr. Ellsworth and his staff took very good care of me pre and post-op, which was over 1 year. He has an exceptional bedside manner. He and his entire staff are very professional. He takes time with his patients.In addition, Dr. Ellsworth did a procedure on our 22 year old son to remove excess skin from his tummy after he lost 65 lbs."- B.V. / Google / Jul 30, 2016
"Cannot recommend Dr. Ellsworth and his team enough. As a woman looking for good recommendations for a Mommy makeover, I only had Instagram posts to go by as many women aren’t openly recommending this procedure on Google reviews as they are public and not anonymous. However, my family is in the medical industry and Dr. Ellsworth comes highly recommended by other doctors because he puts your safety and wishes FIRST. I had one other consult with a popular Houston Plastic Surgeon on Instagram and honestly, I didn’t feel “heard”. Most plastic surgeons have their own aesthetic, and they say go to a surgeon who matches your aesthetic goals. Well, Dr. Ellsworth listens to YOU and matches YOUR aesthetic goals. As it should be! Dr. Ellsworth does not have many pictures online anywhere but let me tell you, I could not be happier with my results thus far and I am only 11 weeks post-op. My first stage I had a circumferential abdominoplasty and a buttock aug, NOT a BBL. He does a different procedure because BBLs are dangerous! (Google them). I also think BBLs don’t look natural and I wanted a natural looking result. I LOVE my results!! His bedside manner and his support staff has made this an amazing experience. Carina Nelson (his PA) is also the best!! I have staged my procedures as this was recommended. I have lost excessive weight and he wants to take time to make sure it is done as I wanted and safely. I cannot wait to see my results after stage 2 is done this summer. I get SOOOOOOOOOO many compliments already on stage 1 and I tell anyone who comments that it was with the help of an amazing plastic surgeon!! I have no shame! After 3 kids and losing 80lbs, I couldn’t look this good without Dr.Ellsworth and Carina!! Thank you!!! I will update after stage 2, I expect it to be an equally amazing experience. Do yourself a favor and definitely go in for a consult with Dr. Ellsworth and his staff if you are shopping around for a plastic surgeon, you will NOT regret it!"- K.M. / Office Visit / Jun 07, 2022
"Recomiendo 100% al Dr. Ellsworth y todo el staff Que trabaja en sus equipo en especial Carina y Cecilia. Este año tuve dos procedimientos tissue expander y DIEP Flap para reconstruir después de una mastectomia. Estoy satisfecha con los resultados, es increíble como pude volver a la normalidad. La recuperación y proceso del DIEP flap puede ser intimidante. Pero vale la pena, ya que los resultados son asombrosos. La naturalidad y la sensibilidad están volviendo. Agradezco mucho haberme encontrado a este equipo profesional, y me siento afortunada que me hayan recomendado este procedimiento. Gracias una vez más por su ayuda, y excelente trabajo profesional."- V.V. / Facebook / Nov 30, 2021

I am pleased and thrilled with my results!!"- A.A. / Google / Nov 21, 2021

Am I a good candidate for a hydrafacial?
The HydraFacial system is designed to be effective for women and men of all ages and skin types. The process will be customized to fit your specific goals. With frequent treatments, the HydraFacial can restore your skin’s health by blending the treatment with antioxidants, peptides, and other nutrients. Skin concerns that may be treated by a HydraFacial include:
- Brown or sun spots
- Chronic or infrequent outbreaks of acne
- Decreased skin elasticity or firmness
- Fine lines and wrinkles
- Large or congested pores
- Oily skin
- Rough skin texture
- Uneven or dull skin tone
How does treatment work?
HydraFacials will be performed in our office in about 30 minutes. The process will begin with a thorough consultation to decide the best options for your facial. After your plan is complete, you may relax in a treatment room as your procedure begins. HydraFacials include six main steps: cleansing, exfoliation, pore extraction, hydration, adding nourishment, and long-lasting skin protection. These steps are customized to the needs of your skin by selecting the appropriate cleansers, level of exfoliation, moisturizers, serums, and other products. Your HydraFacial can be customized further with another complementary facial treatment available at our office.
What should I expect after treatment?
If needed, you can reapply makeup following your HydraFacial treatment to hide redness before you get back to your day. You will likely notice improvements to your skin right after your procedure with full results developing in several days. To maintain the improvements to your complexion, Dr. Ellsworth recommends getting these treatments once a month. During your consultation, we can help you schedule future treatments and discuss a home skin care routine to nourish your skin in between appointments.
What results can I expect?
A HydraFacial is an excellent choice to boost your regular facial care routine. The deep pore cleansing and skin hydration offered by a HydraFacial works to eliminate dirt, oil, debris, and dead skin cells trapped deep in the skin and pores. This helps to reduce skin irregularities and supports skin health. The result is a brighter, fresher, and renewed complexion.
Can I combine a HydraFacial with other aesthetic treatments?
Absolutely! HydraFacials pair well with a number of complementary aesthetic procedures, which can easily be combined during the same treatment session. Depending on your aesthetic goals, we could include BOTOX® and wrinkle relaxers, dermal fillers, chemical peels, and more. We will listen to your concerns and goals during your consultation at Ellsworth Plastic Surgery and then work with you to create the perfect treatment plan.
How often should you get a HydraFacial?
You can have a HydraFacial anytime you need a deep skin cleansing or simply want to refresh your complexion. Many of our patients opt to include a HydraFacial, either every other month or every 2 – 3 months as part of their normal facial skin care regimen. In your consultation, we will listen to your goals to help you create the perfect plan to keep your complexion looking healthy, bright, and naturally youthful.
How does a HydraFacial compare to a chemical or laser peel?
All three treatments are effective methods to achieve healthier, clearer, and younger-looking skin, each with its own strengths and specific treatment targets. What sets a HydraFacial apart is the fact that it is gentle on the skin, requiring no downtime or recovery period, unlike a chemical peel or laser peel. Because the latter two are more intense procedures, they can achieve more dramatic results in regards to skin imperfections like discoloration, spots, rough texture, and more; however, the tradeoff is that these typically have a recovery period and cannot be performed as frequently as a HydraFacial.
Personalize Your Facial
With multiple facial treatments and products on the market, it may seem difficult to choose which is best for your skin. The HydraFacial gives you control over the techniques in your facial, adjusting as needed to customize your skin care. At Ellsworth Plastic Surgery, we strive to provide personalized attention to each of our valued clients. This procedure is a perfect example of our dedication to our clients.
