Houston, TX | Breast Reconstruction Surgery Passion | Chevray Plastic Surgery
Dr. Pierre Chevray: I was attracted to medicine and surgery in particular because I found at a young age I liked to take things apart, figure out how they worked and fix them. And I also liked to make small scale models and I used to paint their eyes and these little figures and paint their watches and that led me to microsurgery which is something I do everyday now. My name is Pierre Chevray, I'm a plastic and reconstructive surgeon at Houston Methodist. Earlier in my career I was a molecular biologist and I found that I did not get as much satisfaction out of research as I did doing surgery because in surgery I got to help one patient immediately with one surgery and make them better and help them recover from their disease. Patients should choose me because I have a passion for breast reconstruction and I love what I do. I've performed thousands of breast reconstruction surgeries over the past two decades and I get to make patients feel whole again after their breast cancer treatments. When a patient comes back and says that they feel great and they think they look great, it makes me feel great and it makes my day. What I especially love is when a patient comes back and I examine their reconstructed breasts and I can see 10 lines from a bathing suit. I love that because I know that they're not self conscious about their breasts anymore and they're just living their normal life.
