5 out of 5 stars Body Lift
I lost over 130 pounds from having weight loss sur a better surgeon than Dr. Schooler and his incredibly kind and loving team to take care of me. I never dreamed I would have a body like the one I have now and could not be happier with my results! Dr. Schooler is a soft spoken, kind and gentle surgeon. He helps guide you through every aspect of surgery before and after. If he feels like something isn't right for you, he will give you his opinion and it is only for the better. He and his team truly care about you, will listen to every concern you have and make sure you are pleased with your outcome.

I needed a self esteem builder, and that's exactly what I got. Very pleased. Dr Schooler was very helpful and he made me feel at ease as he explained what I was to expect. He was always available to answer my questions. The office staff was very friendly and approachable. I will definitely be back for my mommy make over.
Please help me. I have 8 year old saline mentor implants under the muscle 450cc. Last August 2014 I started getting neck and back pain. I figured due to past car accidents. After many doctor visits, chiropractor, meds, physical therapy, acupuncture, massage, cortisone shots etc my pain only got worse and more widespread. In January started getting joint pain in wrists, hips, knees, ...

5 out of 5 stars Breast Reconstruction Revision
I've had many talks with dr. Schooler, he's very sure to to be the best and use the rift procedures. If he feels like what i want is not the best way, he'll talk about with me until I can see what he means. He is very easy to talk with. After the the many surgeries I had to have because of melanoma I felt so scared to get another surgery on my breast; even though I was in a great deal of pain. Not to mention they looked horrible. I had always been able to enjoy the way I look. After all this I believed this part of my life was over. Even though I tried to not get depressed and accept it, I felt a loss. I no longer thought I could be attractive. Dr. Schooler has the calming type of professionalism that gave me some hope. It's ended up taking three surgeries over several years to fix the damage and rebuild the one breast. Now I can feel my body is not mutilated. I believe in Dr. Schooler's expertise. Even though he explains the procedures he's using I have more faith in what he's already done. He's not a sales man like many plastic surgeon or full of himself. He's humble and in my opinion extremely talented. I've been through many surgeries and Dr. Schooler is among the best.
