A Missouri native, Dr. Sato was drawn to the field of plastic surgery when she was diagnosed with Binder’s Syndrome as a child. Binder’s syndrome is a rare congenital malformation resulting in undergrowth of the central face and may include elements of the nose and upper jaw. She underwent rhinoplasty surgery as a teenager utilizing cartilage from her right ear to reconstruct her nose. At just 15 years old she experienced how life-changing plastic surgery can be, and knew that she wanted to be a plastic surgeon, so that someday she could impact others’ lives in a similar manner.

After graduating from the Honors College at the University of Missouri – Columbia with a Bachelor of Science in Biology with a Pre-Med emphasis, Dr. Sato went on to finish medical school at the University of Missouri – Columbia School of Medicine. She then completed her general surgery residency at The University of Texas Health Science Center at Houston in the world-renowned Texas Medical Center followed by a rigorous fellowship in Plastic and Reconstructive Surgery at the same institution.

My experience here was exactly what I asked for. The office is clean and efficient, and the workers are super lovely! Dr. Sato is extremely factual and helpful, she didn’t sugar coat anything and told me everything I needed to know while making sure I was comfortable and thoroughly prepared for the process of surgery.

Dr. Sato is amazing. From consultation to surgery and then later to follow ups the process has been nothing but smooth. I am so happy with my results after having lipo 360, mini tummy tuck, & bbl. She is a medical artist to say the least and always available for her patients needs or concerns. I am looking forward to a few more procedures after having such awesome results she’s my go to for any aesthetic enhancements.
