5 out of 5 stars Breast Augmentation

27 Years Old, 2 Kids, Much Need Breast Augmentation

I am a mom of 2 kids who I nursed and was in desperate need of a breast augmentation. From the moment I met Dr. Schmidt I was impressed. He and his staff are absolutely the best! They are extremely knowledgeable and can answer any questions you have. I am very pleased with the outcome of my procedure. I went from a 32 B to 34 DD and feel and look so much better.

5 out of 5 stars Facelift

I had an amazing experience!

Dr. Schmid is amazing! I was very apprehensive about plastic surgery but his confidence and expertise put my fears at ease. He understands these procedures are routine for him, but not his patients. I had a face lift, lower blepharoplasty, and brow lift. I stopped smoking over 10 years ago but the effects on my skin have continued as I have aged. It was important to me to look natural but...

31yrs Old, 2 Kids, 5'2", 345cc - Lubbock, TX

I saw Dr Schmid in Lubbock, Texas for my procedure. I breastfed both of my kids for a year, had only the required amount of weight gain with both.

I told him I wanted a full C-D cup, with fullness up top. So I now have boobs! Big...

Mother of 3, with 5 Beautiful Grand Babies - Lubbock, TX

I chose Dr Schmidt after my sister had a tummy tuck and breast lift with him. I met the staff and was very pleased with how professional they were. Dr Schmidt was also very professional, answered all my questions and was was very patient in making sure I was comfortable with the procedure I was having done. I didn't feel rushed nor did I feel like just another procedure. He made sure to help me in making the right decision on size. Over all I feel blessed to have had my procedure with a Dr who not only changed how I feel about myself but made sure all the right questions were answered. Price for procedure was very reasonable. My aftercare appointments have also been very thorough. I am very pleased with my results and definitely recommend

A beautiful reconstruction

I am thrilled! After a cruel reconstruction with another PS, I went to Dr Schmid. I am grateful for his skill and talent! He was able to give me a beautiful revision. I was able to have a nipple and tissue sparing mastectomy and now they look so natural, especially complimented with fat grafting!
