 |  Breast Cancer Survivor  |  show details
by Connie Brill on Jun 26th, 2014

Dr. Schusterman literally "put my body back together" - physically and mentally. A mastectomy at 36 with immediate reconstruction was one of the important things that helped me get through the Big "C". Dr. Schusterman is truly the most caring and amazing doctor. Twenty five years ago - and my breast still looks great. This Doctor is at the top of the list in my book - I would, and have, recommended him to many women - after cancer and for enhancement. I would take his advice and trust his decision for any "improvements" to my body!!!

 |  My experience....  |  show details
by JoAnn M. on May 15th, 2014

I think when you read and sign a consent form for surgery you don’t necessarily really acknowledge that any of the adverse outcomes described in the documents are a true possibility. However, in my case, my body rejected first the tissue expander and then the breast implant on one side. If this should happen, you will need a healthcare team that can see you through the experience so you can heal not only physically, but emotionally and spiritually as well. Dr. Schusterman and his dedicated team of caring healthcare professionals have provided that support for me during this past year. Each time I visited Dr. Schusterman’s office, I was greeted personally and felt I was always recognized as an individual person. Several team members followed my journey through chemotherapy, hair loss, extreme fatigue, and the new short hair that eventually grew back; always providing words of encouragement. (This was not my experience in many other doctor office visits I have endured during this past year). When I doubted if I was doing everything I could to keep the implant, both Dr. Schusterman and Melanie provided reassurance and extra time “just in case” I might heal. I visited them weekly until it was clearly evident that my body was just not going to cooperate with our plans. When an implant fails and needs to be removed, there are many emotional and spiritual feelings to manage and physically it takes time for the wound to heal. Dr. Shusterman continued to follow my progress and I am truly appreciative of the caring support I have been provided. I truly believe this was a very rare occurrence for his office and everything that could be done was done. I had my final office visit today and although I am welcome to return in a year to consider another option, at this point I am comfortable to accept me as I am. Hopefully no one else would have to experience an unplanned outcome, but know if God should give you a similar life path to follow… this is the team you will want to travel with you.

 |  He left me with visible SCARS and implants placed too high up my chest  |  show details
by V on Sep 13th, 2013

I wanted to get a simple breast augmentation and met with this man Dr. Schusterman. He told me that he wanted to try a new procedure on me called the "tuba" for my breast implants which is making incision through the belly button and inserting the implants from there too. He promised that there will be NO visible scarring that is why I agreed to it. Well after the surgery the incision was very noticeable on my belly button but I figured it will shrink somehow. The nurse did NOT give me any cream for scarring during the post op. I am not happy with the placement of my implants, they are way too high up my chest and it looks like I am constantly flexing. It has been a few years and my scar is still very obvious and visible. I complained to him that he promised my scar would not be visble since in the beginning i told him I wanted an armpit incision but he kept pushing me to do the belly button procedure and he did not seem to care what had happened. told me he would inject my incision scar with steriods and it only made it look worse. Dr. Schusterman, you have ruined my body and I hope you enjoy all the money you make disfiguring people. Women, please spend your money else where.

 |  Reconstructive breast surgery  |  show details
by Jamie H. on Aug 30th, 2013

He was a surgical genius! He performed total reconstructive breast surgery after stage 3 breast cancer. A Sloan Kettering reconstructive surgeon botched the initial reconstructive surgery and thena MD Anderson reconstructive surgeon was very negative on possibility of repairing the first surgery. Then I heard about Dr Schusterman, who was the former head of MD Anderson's reconstructive surgery, he was very confident he could repair the damage and make me look normal again, it was what he did, he was a gift from God! Very complex surgery, followed by a minor surgery and tatooing a new nipple. It looks great!

    After having lost 80lbs through diet and exercise over the course of 9 months, the skin in my abdominal area had been stretched for too long and had lost its elasticity. As a man, I was apprehensive about making an appointment with a plastic surgeon. On the recommendation of one of my wifes coworkers, I went to see Dr. Mark Schusterman at Museum District Plastic Surgery for a consultation to determine what the best course of action would be for me to correct my loose abdominal skin. After arriving for my appointment, all of the apprehension I had felt disappeared. Dr. Schustermans staff was very welcoming and made me feel very relaxed. In addition, he was very patient during my consultation to listen to me as I expressed my areas of concern, and he was very thorough in explaining to me what my corrective options were. Ultimately, I choose to have an abdominoplasty that did not require tightening of the abdominal muscles. Dr. Schustermans staff was very helpful during my preoperative appointments in making sure that everything went smoothly. On the day of surgery, he and his staff were available to answer my questions and concerns about the operation and the post-surgery recovery. On the day after my surgery, Dr. Schustermans staff called me to make sure I was doing well and to find out if there was anything additional that I needed. The result of my abdominoplasty is fabulous. Dr. Schusterman did a terrific job of placing my scar low enough that it is hidden even when wearing lower cut swim suits. I would definitely recommend Dr. Schusterman to anyone I know seeking the advice of a plastic surgeon and would return to Dr. Schusterman should I ever need any of his services in the future. A. B.

      For most of my life I was pretty self conscious about my chest because of my inverted breastbone which caused my ribs to stick out and when I would wear fitted tops I felt like I looked like I had 4 boobs. When I decided to get a breast augmentation I had a lot of questions on if the procedure would just make me bigger or would it also help to make the appearance of my ribs look smaller. Dr Shusterman was great at letting me know about the different types of implants that were out there and what the different types appearance would be. The staff was also great. I was always able to get a hold of them as well as getting appointments quickly. I was on the fence about the size that I wanted and they were able to get me appointments all the way to a week prior so that I could try on the different sizes. I am very happy with my results and would recommend Dr. Shusterman and his staff to anyone that was thinking about a breast augmentation.

        Dr. Schusterman has done a tummy tuck, face lift, and then my last procedure was having my eye bags taken care of. For every procedure the office and staff have been wonderful. I am especially pleased with my face lift and eye surgery. At 61, both of these procedures have brightened my face and taken years off my appearance. The best part is I look like I have never had anything done and it all looks very natural. I healed quickly and it is amazing to see how everything comes together in time. Even my hairdresser was amazed to see how the face lift scars healed. The eye surgery was my final goal. Now I am comfortable getting my picture taken...without my sunglasses on! Dr. Schusterman is very skillful and does a great job. BM

          In 1999, subsequent to being diagnosed with breast cancer, I knew a mastectomy was in my future and that I needed to find the best breast reconstruction surgeon in Houston. And I did! Dr. Schusterman was highly recommended to me by a plastic surgeon that I knew. High praise in itself. My husband and I met with him, reviewed his credentials and perused information about his background and accomplishments. We both felt that he was a good choice for me. We were so right! My newly constructed breast was perfect and I couldnt have been more pleased with the results. And the accompanying tummy tuck was a great side benefit.\\r\\rIn 2011 I was again diagnosed with breast cancer and again faced a mastectomy and reconstruction. I didnt have to think twice about who I wanted to do the surgery. It was Dr. Schusterman of course. I even delayed surgery for a short period because he was out of town and I wouldnt even consider anyone else.\\r\\rHis staff members are pleasant and caring. Appointments are scheduled so that waiting time to see him in the office is minimal.\\r\\rDr. Schusterman has my highest recommendation.\\r

            I first met Dr. Schusterman a few years ago when I went to see him for a breast augmentation consultation. I knew pretty quickly that he was the surgeon for me. I planned to get 3 consultations and review all of my notes on each one before making a decision on a surgeon. Dr. Schusterman was my first and only consultation. I was so impressed with his knowledge, demeanor and skills as a surgeon. I was heartbroken when my financial situation changed and I was unable to afford surgery. Fast forward a couple of years latermy financial situation changed and I went to see Dr. Schusterman again. He is such an incredible surgeon, very patient and detailed in his work. His staff is super friendly and more than happy to answer questions, no matter how many times theyve heard them. Im sure theyve been asked a million times if breast augmentation is painful, how long it hurts and a variety of other questions. Dr. Schusterman answered all of those questions but it helps hearing it from someone whos been there, done that. \\r After listening to my desired results and discussing my body type tall, average build, somewhat broad shoulders, Dr. Schusteman recommended silicone gel 492cc implants under the muscle. I tried them on and totally agreed with him, they were natural looking and not way too big for me. \\rThe morning of my surgery was full of nervous jitters but I knew I would be taken care of and when I woke up Id finally have that ta-tas I always wanted. I went in barely a B-cup at Victorias Secret and 4 months later I measure a DDD-cup. Sure, it was a little painful, but totally worth it. Id do it all over again in an instant! Hard to believe, but I had no bruising at all. Even my friends were amazed at that. Of course, everyone is different though.\\rDr. Schusterman and staff are awesome post-surgery as well. Each time I have a follow up appointment, Dr. Schusterman checks to make sure everything is looking good and it always does. He is such a gifted surgeon, and I cannot say enough great things about his work. I would highly recommend Dr. Schusterman to anyone looking for a great cosmetic surgeon. \\rRB\\r

              Dr. Schusterman & his staff truly care about their patients. He spent much time with me prior to and after my procedure to insure that all my questions and concerns were addressed. I am extremely satisfied with the results and thank him for his surgical expertise, professionalism and for truly caring about my well-being. Thanks again Dr. Schusterman!\\r\\rTC\\r

                One year ago today I found out news that would immediately change my life. Being diagnosed with breast cancer was both shocking and frightening. In the very beginning, I had no idea where to start or who to start with. Until I had a plan of action, I felt lost. I am so thankful that the path Ive traveled has led me to Dr. Schusterman for my reconstructive surgery. The staff is always so warm and welcoming, and Dr. Schusterman is very professional, very talented, and very personable. I have no regrets about any of the choices Ive made with Dr. Schusterman which were tissue expanders followed later with implants. Ill never forget when he visited me prior to my double mastectomy, saw me fretting while I was getting an IV put in I have never been a needle fan, he touched my foot and said dont worry, youre getting cured today. My recovery after each surgery has been quick without issues, and I sprung back to normal activities quickly. Im very happy with the results. After having such a traumatic experience emotionally and psychologically, its comforting to have as pleasant an experience possible visually every day I see myself in the mirror.\\r\\rNG\\r

                    Dr. Schusterman performed my breast reconstruction immediately following my bilateral mastectomy he was referred to me by other doctors and highly respected. I have some further procedures, but I am so happy with how I am looking and feeling. Dr. S and his staff are caring, informative, professional and really want to make sure that I am happy with everything that we`re doing. They are all fabulous to work with! Many thanks!

                        Its difficult to put into words the feeling of admiration and gratitude I have towards Dr. Schusterman who in 2010 performed my latissimus dorsi flap reconstruction. His perfectionism and dedication produced an incredibly outstanding end result-far beyond my expectations! He and his staff handled the entire process with professionalism, compassion, and sincere patience. Dr. Schusterman is truly a master of his craft and a kind, caring, generous individual who I felt always had my best interest in mind. I am so blessed to have found such an extremely qualified and experienced surgeon. His wonderful talent gave me back what cancer had taken away! My breasts are no longer a symbol of a cancer survivor but the work of true life changing- artist! \\rF.G.\\r

                        Dr. Schusterman is amazing!! I was in urgent need of surgery. I had visited many plastic surgeons in the Houston area and the one thing they all had in common is the belief that Dr. Schusterman is the best surgeon and he was the one for me to see. The staff was/is very friendly and helpful. Dr. Schusterman has a wonderful bedside manner. He is honest, direct, compassionate, highly knowledgeable and extremely intelligent. He scheduled me for surgery and I felt very confident in his abilities. The surgery went great and I am so very happy. Dr. Schusterman and his entire staff have been wonderful at all follow up appointments. I would and will send anyone in need of the best surgeon to Dr. Schusterman.

                            Its so hard to find words that express the anguish that you immediately feel with a cancer diagnosis. And unfortunately, even though the fear subsides some with time, theres still that shadow of doubt anytime you feel a new pain or often times experience merely the very normal aging process. Dr. Schusterman and his staff have clearly been attuned to my needs both emotionally and physically right from the start. My journey has lent anything but textbook examples and weve all known that we must step up as each new challenge has presented itself to us. Without his guidance and expertise and his staffs compassion and support, I could have never undergone the last 2 years with grace and hope. Although I pray my surgical journey ends with complete success soon, I know that I could not have walked this path without complete and total trust in Dr. Schustermans hands and faith in God. I feel like Im family at his office and know firsthand that they will accommodate my needs. Breast cancer patients are their top priority and they affirm that dedication in every visit.

                                I began seeing Dr. Schusterman in April of 2011 after being diagnosed with breast cancer. My treatment plan consisted of a bi-lateral mastectomy with reconstruction and implants. Because my cancer had not spread to the lymph nodes I did not have to have radiation or chemo treatments and was able to begin treatment right away. The day of my mastectomy I came out of surgery with the tissue expanders and over a period of 6 weeks they were filled and I was able to have the surgery to put in my silicone implants. Since then I have had several procedures to perfect the size and position of the implants with my last procedure being in March of 2013. From day one Dr. Schusterman explained the procedures and the need for them and everything happened just as he said. I have always felt like I made the perfect choice in Dr. Schusterman. He is a very kind and caring man and a wonderful plastic surgeon. I actually feel that the end results are better than what I started with. The entire staff at Museum District Aesthetic Plastic Surgery are great. In the 2 years that I have been seeing Dr. Schusterman I have never had to wait longer than 5 minutes. I have and will continue to recommend Dr. Schusterman to everyone that I know. \\r\\rDP\\r

                                    Dr. Schusterman,\\rMy whole experience with you and your staff has been more than excellent. I traveled 400 miles from south Texas to see you. Your professionalism and finest work is the reason I continue to come to you. I visited your office on 2009 for a mommy makeover and I was very satisfied. I had a horrible looking vertical scar on my stomach from an emergent laparoscopy I had many years ago that I wanted help on making it look better or gone, I was self conscious about it and was embarrassed to show my belly to anyone especially my loving husband, I couldnt let him place his hand on my abdomen due to the fact that I did not feel sexy. Now I have the self confidence to wear bikinis with pride. I cant thank you enough to you friendly staff and yourself as I felt very comfortable and welcoming. \\rThank you, E.G.\\r

He made me feel beautiful again. The results are breathtaking. Not one time did I ever feel uncomfortable or out of place. Dr. Schusterman and his staff made me feel at ease and welcomed me with open arms. Any question I had was answered right away without hesitation. I am so glad that I chose Dr. Schusterman for my procedures. I now have the confidence and self esteem that I didn't have. I wake up every morning look at myself and smile, because I am a beautiful woman. And its all because of Dr. Schusterman. E.P.

                                    When a double mastectomy is recommended to you, it can be devastating. But if you also find out that there is a renowned breast reconstruction plastic surgeon named Mark Schusterman in your area, the anxiety is minimalized. His office is set up with the patients' comfort and best interests in mind. Starting at the front desk, the patient is made to feel both welcome and at ease. Appointment times are strictly adhered to. Once ushered to an examimning room, patients are seen by the doctor in a timely fashion and never rushed through an appointment. Dr. Schusterman answers all questions honestly and thoroughly, while never alarming the patient and making her feel that he can and will take care of anything that arises. He is a master craftsman and artist in his work. Dr. Schusterman and his staff kept a breast cancer diagnosis from being a nightmare for me. I feel extremely lucky to have been under his care and would and have recommended him to my friends and family.

Kudos. Expect the best from this surgeon.

                                        Dr. Schusterman performed a lower body lift, lipo on my thighs, and an upper arm lift in January, 2013. This surgery lasted 8 hours. I am extremely pleased with the results of the surgery and my follow up. Dr. Schusterman`s bed side manner from my first consultation about the surgery to my most recent post-operative visit has always been exceptional. He always puts me at ease and answers any and all of my questions or concerns. He truly cares! Additionally, his staff has always been professional but most importantly very personable and caring. \\r\\rMy surgery was the most significant decision I had to make regarding my appearance due to my 120 lb weight loss. If it wasn`t for Dr. Schusterman`s professionalism and caring demeanor I`m not sure that I would have gone through such extensive surgery. When asked by family and friends if I would do this again, my response is - \"\"in a heart beat as long as Dr. Schusterman performs the surgery\"\". I highly recommend him to anyone considering cosmetic surgery.

                                            I needed to get the breast uplift. Checked these guys out after some friends recommended. They are very cooperative, caring and the results were awesome! Thanks

                                            Aug 13th, 2012

                                            Around 2000, Dr. Schusterman performed a browlift on me which left me horribly scarred, ear to ear. The scar from the incision is not only wide but it is not even in the hairline as it should be. His staff tried to tattoo it (never should have been done) and now I have a brick red line (because the pigment was for nipples, didn't match my skin color) above the white scar. I went to see him about it and he said in a really fake way, "Oh that looks fantastic!" when everyone I know says it looks like I've had an accident. He won't do anything about the scar. I surmise he is really great with breasts, but I wouldn't trust him again with my face. I don't appreciate the fakeness/being lied to either. Read the reviews, others have been left badly scarred by him in similar (facelift, browlift) procedures.

                                            I had breast augmentation in 2001 by a doctor in Houston. In 2005 I ruptured my left implant somehow then 3 months later after the dr fixed it it ruptured again. He fixed it a second time but my results were terrible. The implant had too much scar tissue and calcium building around it making the implant about an inch- 2 inches higher than the other one and painful. I went to Schusterman to fix this problem and he said he could and he tooky insurance for part of the procedure. The insurance paid $19,000 and I paid $6,500. I was very pleased with the results, however at my 6 month post op visit he wasn't completely satisfied so he told me he would like to go in again free of charge and lower my implant a little more. He is definately a perfectionist. He also did a few other things for me and I am very happy with everything so far.

                                            Dr Schusterman and his staff helped me during a very difficult situation. I was struggling with previous breast reconstructions from breast cancer that had harmed my body resulting in severe muscles spams, significantly deformed ribcage and a very odd appearance. I had seen other plastic surgeons, but no one had given me much hope. Dr Schusterman and his staff welcomed me to their office. He examined me and took my case immediately. It's been 10 months since the surgery and I now have soft breasts and a nice shape, two things I didn't think I would ever have again. My pain and spasms are much better and are continuing to improve. My son tells me that Dr Schusterman has given him back his mom. I wish I would have known of Dr Schusterman 6 years ago and could have had his help with my initial reconstruction.I thank God that Dr Schusterman took my case and helped me get past a very difficult time.

                                            I know this goes back a bit, but believe it or not, it took 4 years for me to be able to talk about this......In 2007, I went to Dr. Schusterman for a Blepharoplasty. I actually went first to one of his staff for IPL treatments and suggested I speak to Dr. Schusterman about my puffy eyes. I was only 42 at the time. I scheduled the procedure with him because I had two weeks of vacation in between job moves. I ended up waking up with a face lift at 42! . I have spent the last 4 years trying to hide really bad scars that run down the sides of my face and have spent several thousands on Fraxel scar treatments. I can not longer pull my hair back, swim, golf, or do anything that would exposure my temples. The scars are not hidden in my hairline, they are white and wide and one side is clearly different that the other. I also have very strange ear attachments also each different where my lobes or lack of lobes meet my neck. Please don`t go to him. I`ve just recently filed a complaint with the Texas Medical Board and I hope some day he will be held accountable. And btw, I did speak with him he never came to recovery, but I went to his office the next day in tears and he told me \"One Day you will thank me. You got a much more expense procedure for less money\". How arrogant is that!

                                            There is a new implant in town and it`s in my lips. No more painful juvaderm injections for me! Recently Dr. Schusterman performed this quick, in office proceedure and all my friends want lips like mine. But here is the real skinny...it hurts a little, but not for long. I had my proceedure on a Friday and had an excuse to take it easy for the weekend. I took the oral pain medicine and applied ice on schedule for the first twenty four hours. I had some \"\"lip awareness\"\" but no real pain. By Monday I was back at work with lucious lips. This Dr. and his staff were delightful, professional, AND in fact, I think I will go back to fix a little of this and a little of that.

                                            I first saw Dr. Schusterman in 1990 for my first breast reconstruction after a breast cancer diagnosis, a modified mastectomy and radiation therapy. I could not be more happy with the results of my reconstruction. Dr. Schusterman has always been so pleasant to deal with and was so accessible to me as a new patient. I always had the opportunity to speak to him personally over the phone if I truly had concerns. Dr. Schusterman did wonderful work that has been complimented on by a number of doctors that I have seen through the years. All agree that it looks great and he did a superb job. I recently have developed a problem with the other breast and did not hesitate in calling Dr. Schusterman. He is presently in the process of reconstructing my second breast, using a different method from the first, but no less successful. I am confident that it will be as beautiful a result as the first. I have found that his staff is very accomodating and pleasant to deal with. I love this doctor and would very much recommend him to anyone. BRSchnell

                                            I recently had a consultation with Dr. Schusterman for a breast lift and implant replacement. His bedside manner is great and his staff is so friendly and knowledgeable. I can`t wait to have my surgery! While I was there I got a free skin care consultation at his medspa and had some Botox. I would definitely recommend him to my friends.

I visited two other very credible doctors in the area before deciding to go with Dr. Schusterman and I`m so glad I did! I was incredibly impressed with his honesty and expertise and my results are AMAZING! Both pre and post op his staff was incredible. I must have called at least 10 times bugging them about medication and silly instructions like when I can begin exercising, which I know they told me a million times before. Every time I called the staff was incredibly friendly and helpful. I will definitely recommend Dr. Schusterman to all my friends and family!!

                                            I went to Dr. Mark Schusterman for a second opinion for a breast augmentation and I am so happy that I did. As I walked into his office I was greeted by the front office and was then brought back not too long after by the Patient Coordinator . By this time I felt very comfortable and relaxed as the doctor walked in. It seemed as if we made a connection and he made me feel very comfortable. He answered all my questions and I was very informed of the surgical procedure. After reviewing his website and finally meeting him I knew at that moment that he was the right doctor for me. I trusted his expertise and his staff was very pleasant. The financing process was made very easy for me and before I knew it I was set up and ready to go for surgery within a few weeks. My results are amazing and my husband is very thankful. I would highly recommend Dr. Mark Schusterman to all my friends and family. He has made this whole process a very easy process and I am very thankful.

                                            I sought out a surgeon to help \"\"put me back together\"\" after my battle with breast cancer. I made the decision to have double mastectomies due to the high incidence of breast cancer in my family. I am still rather young and wanted to be sure I could recover my shape after removing my breasts. During my entire battle with cancer, I read and researched everything, every step of the way procedures, risks, outcomes, how to pick a Dr, how to pick a treatment, what has the best survival rate, etc. All the leading books tell you to find a surgeon that is credible, has a strong reputation, extensive experience and a demeanor to support you in the last every step towards recovery. Dr Shusterman and his staff, especially Michele his OR nurse more than exceeded all of my expectations.

The magnitude of making the decision for this surgery coupled with choosing the right doctor could have been a mind-boggling experience. As I am 2 12 hrs. from Houston, I did not need to waste my time or anyone else`s. However, I had such a great experience when I walked through the door of Dr. Shusterman`s office on the first visit. The ladies of Dr. Shusterman`s office went \"\"above and beyond\"\"! After talking with him, I realized he was committed to excellence and would be meticulous in surgery. I, as the patient, would benefit greatly from that. Additional questions were handled by Michelle, his surgery nurse, who was patient and understanding. My results...fabulous .....great ....awesome. ...fantastic! Yes, if anyone is considering surgery I think Dr. Shusterman would be an excellent choice!

His price was higher than the other doctors quote`s I`ve gotten, but I`m glad I ended up paying the extra money, because the results were wonderful. However, his appointments are quick I`m talking 5-10 minutes and he often double books patients, so his waiting room is constantly filled and the wait time is around 45 minutes for a quick followup. He is very busy and barely will look at you during your appointments. Despite this, you can`t argue that he isn`t a good surgeon. I`d go back again based on his expertise alone.

                                            Finding the right surgeon is key, but his support staff is equally important. I picked the doc based on his exceptional qualifications, however, the experience with his staff was far from pleasant. I was assured there was no consultation fee and confirmed my appointment. As I was sitting in the office waiting to see the doc, Ms. Karen Ivy staff told me that unless I paid the fee, he would not be able to see me. I tried to tell her that I was informed that there would be no fee, but it fell on deaf ears. After returning home and confirming through past emails that there was no consultation fee, I called the office back. It was not until this time that Ms. Ivy wanted to \"\"reconcile\"\" their mistake and see me. She should have reconciled the situation WHILE I was there sitting in the office and not later when I have already returned home. I not only wasted my time and parking money to see the doctor, the experience was so offensive that I had to write this blog to warn others. Having a pleasant and professional staff is an important part of having surgery because they are the ones you see before and after. I would not recommend his services to others.

It took me several months of visiting surgeons before selecting Dr. Schusterman. Once I decided he was the right surgeon , I consulted with him on 3 additional visits. Each time he was patient and answerd all of my questions. His final question to me was always, \"\" Have I answered all of your questions \"\" I`m currently post operative . The evening of surgery he personally called to see how I was doing. I have no doubt that my results will be as dynamic as this Dr.

                                            Dr. Shusterman and staff were so kind and professional. I love my results! If you live in the Houston area, you definitely have to go see him for any kind of plastic surgery or facial treatments.
