Dr. Mary Ellen Firat, MD, serves as the head of anesthesia at Basu Aesthetics + Plastic Surgery and our Ambulatory Surgery Center – Beleza Surgery Center.
Hailing from Auburn, AL, Dr. Firat attended Loyola University in New Orleans for undergrad and obtained her M.D. from the University of South Alabama College of Medicine. She moved to Houston for anesthesia residency at UT Houston in 1999 and made it her home.
It had always been her “dream job” to do aesthetic plastic surgery at an outpatient surgery center, as she enjoys watching the patients’ transformations and loves helping them start their journeys while providing a relaxing anesthetic suited to each individual.
