The report, “America’s Best Plastic Surgeons 2021,” recognizes plastic surgeons who stand out within the field.

A new report from Newsweek ranks Houston board certified plastic surgeon C. Bob Basu, MD, MBA, MPH, FACS, of Basu Aesthetics + Plastic Surgery, one of the top breast augmentation surgeons in the nation. The report, “America’s Best Plastic Surgeons 2021,” recognizes plastic surgeons who stand out within the field, and was compiled using surveys of fellow plastic surgeons throughout the country.

“I’m honored and humbled to be one of the surgeons recognized by Newsweek,” said Basu. “It is because of my patients’ loyalty and appreciation that the practice has grown to be what it is today. It’s not lost on me that patients have many options when it comes to choosing a plastic surgeon.” He added: “My goal with every procedure is to make a connection with my patients and create a plan to enhance their natural beauty. “With breast augmentation in particular, it is key for me to spend time learning what the patient wants to ensure we achieve their desired aesthetic.” In addition to aesthetic breast surgery, Basu specializes in body contouring, mommy makeovers, facial rejuvenation, and plastic surgery after weight loss.

As an author of the internationally recognized textbook Cosmetic Breast Surgery, Basu is a thought leader in aesthetic breast surgery. The Allergan Black Diamond breast implant provider’s practice is ranked in the top 1% of breast implant practices in the nation, according to a press release statement. He has also been named an H Texas Magazine Top Doc in Plastic Surgery for over 14 years. He currently serves as vice president of finance for the American Society of Plastic Surgeons.

In efforts to educate patients, Basu initiated the podcast Behind the Double Doors in which he answers lesser-discussed questions submitted by real patients. He also makes frequent media appearances, discussing topics like Brazilian butt lift safety and reconstructive surgery after cancer.
