Care Philosophy

"My philosophy with rejuvenational surgery, is to achieve a natural-looking result with every surgery and procedure. I believe the goal is to help patients look like younger versions of themselves while still retaining the facial characteristics that are uniquely theirs. "In my practice, we are committed to leading-edge technology and the many ways it can make things simpler and easier for our patients. I spend time during the consultation process so that I can thoroughly understand what a patient wants to achieve. I help manage their expectations, explain the limits of plastic surgery and partner with them to find the least invasive measures to achieve their goals."Read more

immediately decided not to do what 2 other surgeons recommended said was fine the way I was even though I needed this surgery to remove scar tissue that was being bitten on inside of lip, then I noticed he was saying it would make my smile lower than it was and he was looking at the photos of my normal side, the scar tissue side needed to be lowered and was high was the problem, read reviews his staff is nice but they don't cut you, I asked for another surgeon

My experience was awesome! Dr. Schutz eased my concerns and apprehension of following through on a breast reduction surgery. He was professional, courteous and easy to talk to. Dr. Schutz blew my expectations right out of the water! My results were perfectly proportional to my body size, symmetrical and most of all, natural looking. I would recommend Dr. Schutz to anyone looking for a surgeon who can and will exceed your expectations. 100% Satisfied client!

    Why Does Experience Matter?
