Trained at Harvard Medical School and Yale Medical School, and board certified by both the American Board of Plastic Surgery and the American Board of Surgery, Dr. Eric Schaffer is often named one of the best plastic surgeons in San Antonio, Texas, and throughout the country. For many years in a row, Texas Monthly Magazine has named him a "Texas Super Doctor".
Dr. Schaffer and his staff believe that the aftercare you receive is just as important as the cosmetic surgery itself. So many of his patients are so pleased with the natural results they get, they frequently come back for one of his many other plastic surgery procedures, such as breast augmentation, tummy tuck, liposuction or face lift.
Dr. Schaffer invites you to a consultation with him and experience the “Schaffer Difference” – the personal attention of one of the top plastic and cosmetic surgeons in Texas.
In 1986, Dr. Schaffer introduced his “hidden scar technique” for breast augmentation. This cosmetic surgery technique creates a tiny, almost invisible incision in the armpit through which he inserts the breast implant. He then moves the implant into place behind the breast muscle. This creates a softer and more natural shape allowing a woman the ability to breast feed and retain nipple sensation.
Hailed as one of the nation’s “Top Doctors”, many of Dr. Schaffer’s patients come from out of state and even from other countries. While most women are interested in breast surgery for the first time, others consult with Dr. Schaffer to improve a previous breast surgery.
During your consultation, Dr. Schaffer will address your concerns and explain: incision placement (armpit, nipple, lower breast crease) breast implant type (silicone or saline, smooth or textured, round or teardrop) and implant position (in front or behind the breast muscle) so that together you can make the best choice for your breast augmentation.
Abdominoplasty - Tummy Tuck
As we age, lose weight or experience pregnancy, our skin begins to sag and fat becomes more difficult to get rid of, especially around the midsection. A tummy tuck is a cosmetic surgery that is designed to address these issues leaving a person with a flatter, tighter and firmer abdomen.
Dr. Eric Schaffer is double-board certified from Harvard Medical School and the University of Texas Health Science Center. He has been safely and successfully helping men and women from all over achieve their cosmetic goals through abdominoplasty.
