"To truly make a body and face more beautiful, a plastic surgeon has to understand and skillfully work with the structure of the human body, down to microscopic blood vessels, muscles and nerves. In addition, the surgeon has to understand that the patient's experience during the process also needs special care - technical skills are not enough. The surgeon has to provide reassurance and support all the way through the process, managing the patient's anxiety and expectations." - Dr. Schusterman
As a world renowned, Houston Plastic Surgeon, Dr. Schusterman has established his reputation through his research and development of microsurgical reconstruction techniques in the aid of head, neck and breast cancer patients. The associated challenges have endowed him with considerable knowledge and understanding of the human body and have finely honed his surgical skills, particularly when it comes to plastic and cosmetic surgery.
Working with people in crisis, such as cancer patients, takes special people skills - empathy, compassion and caring. The spirit and emotions of the patient need as much attention as the body for the healing to be a complete success. Dr. Schusterman has learned those skills and applies them to his plastic and cosmetic surgery patients today.
A graduate of Emory University and the University of Louisville School of Medicine, Dr. Schusterman is in private practice in Houston, Texas, where his office is located in the heart of the Texas Medical Center.
