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."

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.

Dr. Schutz is considerate, caring, thorough and precise. I have been very pleased and satisfied with all the procedures he has performed for me. He has a very gentle and painless technique which have been painful from other Doctors. I would highly recommend him to anyone looking for a very talented Doctor who gives grest results.

So happy with my experience with Dr. Shutz and staff. My scars are almost non existent from my breast augmentation and he did not bruise me whatsoever. My results are beautiful!
Hi, we're so glad that we were able to go above and beyond your expectations! We are always more than happy to assist you if anything else comes up. Take care!

After a consultation, I would not pursue surgery with this individual. Perhaps surgery would have been "successful". I decided to value my time, health, and resources more than my meaningless cosmetic issue, even as this individual used insensitive, strong, and abrasive language when discussing the appearance of my cosmetic issue, perhaps in an effort to increase the likelihood I would pursue surgery or perhaps he is simply that unable to consider others as whole human beings. Typical Dr Ego.

Dr. Schutz and staff are amazing
Rapid City, SD |
Dr. Schutz tried to tell me that I had a common medical condition after telling him that I have a less common one. He insisted that I go to a nutritionist, and kept pushing the issue after I declined. Even after I thanked him for his time and made it clear that I would not be using his services, he did not leave the room so I could get dressed. He simply continued to push his nutritionist friend. When he did leave, he sent in his staff afterword with price quotes! I left in tears.
I am sorry I was not able to give you the services you were wanting. My patients overall health is my primary concern! I tell my patients they need to maintain a stable weight and lifestyle before undergoing body contouring cosmetic surgery. There are many clinics that are able to help them achieve these goals prior to surgery. I am always willing to help or refer patients to get them the long term results they are wanting. Hopefully, we will be able to help you in the future.

I an thrilled that Dr. Schutz was my plastic surgeon after my breast cancer. I had complication, and Dr. Schutz and his staff listened to all my concerns, and were very compassionate. When I had issues, I was seen in a timely manner. I would recommend him to anyone who needs plastic surgery.

When I was 5 years old I was hit by a car- which requires several surgeries to save function of my toe/foot, involving skin graph and later more reconstructive surgery. Being 5 years old, it was terrifying- BUT I remember going into each surgery comforted by Dr. Schultz himself. He always made a point to come see me prior, and ensure me that everything would be fine. (I better not leave out the fact that I had a huge crush on him, and always said he was the "hottest old man" ever LOL)
in Rapid City, SD |
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!
