Dr. Schaffer was awesome! I would use him and recommend him to any of my family and friends. I had a tummy tuck and Lipo on my flanks. I am in awe of the way my belly looks now. I can't believe it when I look in the mirror. Even bathing suit shopping this year was fun for the first time since I had my children. I bought 4 suits! His talent is nothing short of amazing!

My overall experience with Dr. Schaffer has been nothing shy of excellent. The treatment, the care, the procedure, and the recovery process was all very smooth! Dr. Schaffer and his staff, make you feel like you are the most important patient they have, and go out of their way to accomplish what you are wanting.
