About the Practice

Practice Philosophy

Dr. Steely and his staff are committed to the THREE "S's" of a successful cosmetic surgery experience.

Dr. Steely and his staff place patient safety as the prime priority in their work. Plastic surgery and cosmetic surgery is an elective luxurious treat, and safety should be the primary force governing all decisions both surgical and nonsurgical.

Dr. Steely and his staff at Steely Plastic Surgery are dedicated to delivering the highest possible level of service while under our care. We take pride in delivering one of the highest levels of patient care and service in the country. As opposed to many other plastic surgery clinics in Houston, as well as nationally, Dr. Steely is your primary caregiver throughout the surgical process. From initial consultation through your surgery and recovery period, Dr. Steely himself and not an ancillary staff is your primary caregiver.

Again, cosmetic surgery is a luxurious treat for yourself, and satisfaction is a must. Dr. Steely and his staff strive to deliver the highest of patient satisfaction possible. Our greatest reward is a happy, thankful patient who is thrilled with their results and feels like their procedure was not only the right decision, but one of the best decisions they have ever made.

Your Consultation

In Dr. Steely’s Own Words

I understand that during the consultation and examination, you may feel apprehensive, but be assured that I will do my very best to make you feel as comfortable as possible. Be confident too that I will listen very closely to what you have on your mind. Do not expect to be pressured. Take as long as you need during the consultation. It is important to me that you understand all aspects of your procedure. Afterwards, if you have any questions about your procedure, you can phone or email me as often as you wish.

I stress aesthetic proportion over absolute size because I believe beauty is all about balance and the relationship of each part to the whole. As each person is unique, so every cosmetic solution I suggest is unique. I do not subscribe to a cookie cutter approach.

I will provide you with comprehensive instructions for a trouble-free recovery. After surgery, I want you to visit me for multiple follow-ups to make sure that your recovery is progressing as planned.

Staff & Facilities

Surgical Facility

AAAASF Accredited Surgical Facility

At Steely Plastic Surgery, we strive to offer our patients one-of-a-kind personalized care in a comfortable environment, while also providing privacy and convenience.

The surgical facility at Steely Plastic Surgery is accredited by the American Association of Ambulatory Surgery Facilities (AAAASF). Facilities accredited by the AAAASF undergo an intensive accreditation process, similar to what major hospitals undergo, to provide the highest level of patient care. We are proud to be accredited by the AAAASF, meeting the rigorous standards of excellence and commitment to patient safety.

Our 2000 sq. ft. surgical facility features a modern operating room and post-operative recovery area with the latest in medical equipment and supplies. Surgeries performed at our facility are very similar to surgeries performed by Dr. Steely at hospitals and/or other surgery centers. A board certified anesthesiologist, registered nurse and certified scrub technician are utilized to ensure safety, comfort and piece of mind. Dr. Steely personally selects all staff members for the operating facility based on first-hand experience with these professionals at other hospitals or operating facilities. All members of our surgical team have full privileges to perform their duties at Houston area hospitals.

Patients who have surgery at our facility enjoy the intimate environment and feel comfortable because they are already familiar with our office. Surgeries in our operating facility tend to require less time overall because paperwork has already been completed. Patients need to arrive only thirty minutes before their surgery time, versus the two hour requirement at the hospital.
