In Need of Better Boobs! - San Antonio, TX

All my life I have wanted bigger boobs and after having a child, and hitting 40, it was not so much a want but rather a NEED! I spent countless hours researching doctors online and found Dr. Schaffer. I met with him, expressed my concerns, and felt so comfortable and confident with him that I scheduled my surgery during the consultation. And I could not be more pleased with the results! They...

5 out of 5 stars Breast Augmentation

Highly recommended Surgeon and staff!

Dr. Schaffer did an excellent job with my breast augmentation! My new boobs were looking so good even at week one post op! I'm so glad I chose Dr. Schaffer! My first consult took about an hour of him talking to me about the procedure, silicone or saline, the pros and cons of it. He cares about his patients and he answered all of my questions. I am so glad I chose him! His staff being so sweet...

Dr. Schaffer is hands down the best plastic surgeon for body work. He did my tummy tuck and I am flat as a washboard! Recovery was fairly easy...back to work after one week. He also did a breast implant replacement and fixed the previous incision scars...amazing! Back to running in 2 weeks. Breasts look perfect! Staff is so kind and helpful and fun to work with. I will always refer...

5 out of 5 stars Breast Implant Revision

Implant Revision - San Antonio, TX

I loved the staff and Dr. Schaffer. He answered all my questions and concerns and is clearly more than knowledgeable in the field. His confidence and thorough exam made me feel like he was the right choice even before the procedure but after even more so. I will go to him for any plastic surgery needs and would recommend him highly !
