Care Philosophy

This content was provided by Dr. Schutz ""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."

In his practice, Dr. Schutz believe less is more. His philosophy is to achieve a natural-looking result with every surgery and procedure."

I am quite pleased with my facial surgery that Dr. Schutz performed. I was concerned about not looking "like me" when I was done, but Dr. Schutz assured me that I would look like me, only better. He was definitely right. I put all my faith in his ability and I am very happy with the results.
