Dr. Morales, a Houston native, has set the standard high for young surgeons in Houston and across the United States. In his four years of professional practice he has presented at every national plastic surgery meeting (ASPS and ASAPS), an honor many surgeons will never get in their lifetime. His groundbreaking research on Exparel® a long-lasting anesthetic, and Elliquis, a novel anticoagulant, has received attention across the nation. Additionally, his articles on Exparel® and Elliquis were accepted for publication in the prestigious Aesthetic Surgery Journal “Editor’s Choice” award in body contouring. He continues his research endeavors in plastic surgery with innovative medicines and techniques.
Dr. Morales has spearheaded the effort to establish an ASAPS-endorsed fellowship for ACPS. As the architect of the fellowship, Dr. Morales set out to design an experience that allows ambitious young plastic surgeons to fully capitalize on the benefits of working at the aesthetic surgery practice that Dr. Morales believes to be the “best in Houston by far and, arguably, the state.” As part of the real-world curriculum, surgeons chosen for the fellowship will observe all aspects of a successful private plastic surgery practice and receive invaluable one-on-one training and mentoring from the groups’ surgeons. “Drs. Patronella, Mentz, and Newall have so much to pass on from their experience,” commented Morales. To give back to future generations is priceless to us. This fellowship will be our group’s legacy.”
It is an understatement to say Dr. Morales has taken the Houston plastic surgery field by storm. In addition to these great academic accomplishments, his surgical results are phenomenal. Dr. Morales performs all aesthetic surgery of the breast, body, and face. He specializes in breast augmentation, Brazilian butt lift, abdominoplasty, mommy makeover.
Dr. Morales joined the prestigous Aesthetic Center for Plastic Surgery (ACPS) in July of 2012. ACPS was founded in 1996 and is currently ranked as the largest private plastic surgery center in Texas.
