Catering to each patient’s individual needs is the number-one priority for Dr. Michael Law and Dr. Alexandra Schmidt. “A very happy moment in my career has been bringing Dr. Schmidt into my practice,” says Dr. Law. “I searched for quite a long time for a surgeon with the surgical training and genuinely caring demeanor that is ideal for this practice.” These highly trained surgeons and their experienced, professional team of boardcertified anesthesiologists, circulating registered nurses and certified surgical technicians have the goal of providing both a positive patient experience and life-changing surgical results. Specializing in plastic surgery of the breast, body and face, the doctors are committed to delivering natural-looking results. “Our patients want to appear their best, but they don’t want to look like they’ve had surgery. There’s nothing more satisfying than when patients report that their family, friends or colleagues say, ‘You look fantastic!’ but can’t put their finger on exactly why,” adds Dr. Law.

A Minute With
What new services are you excited to offer?Patients are often anxious to get back to their fitness routine after surgery. We now offer patients complimentary post-op Emsculpt treatments, which allows them to maintain some aspects of their fitness level and further improve their physique during recovery. We also offer Emsella to strengthen the pelvic floor, which can enhance the results of a Mommy Makeover
How do you show patients you care post-treatment?We are preemptive and proactive about postoperative pain control. Our goal is for patients to leave the recovery area with a smile and to enjoy a less-than-24-hour return to light, routine daily activities
Describe your doctor/patient relationship dynamic.We pay very close attention to our patients’ goals, routine and lifestyle to tailor a plan that suits them best
What sets your practice apart?Our practice is designed for the most discerning patients, many of whom are physicians, physician’s assistants and nursing professionals. We only employ board-certified anesthesiologists and our on-site ambulatory surgery center has both AAAASF and Joint Commission accreditation. Our high-profile patients appreciate our discreet private entrance
What is the most outrageous medical myth you’ve heard?That breast augmentation is a “simple surgery.” Merely making breasts bigger is pretty easy to do, but creating augmented breasts that look and feel natural, have an aesthetically ideal shape and maintain a beautiful appearance for years to come requires expertise, attention to detail and an artist’s eye
Our dream innovationYears ago, I would have said a more rapid and comfortable breast surgery recovery, but those innovations have already happened. Now, our patients feel great as they leave the operating room

She Did it Again!
"Dr. Schmidt did it again! After completing a very successful upper bleph on my husband she and her surgical team performed the same surgery on me. I had been talking about getting this procedure done for quite some time. I can’t believe I waited this long. It was surprising how quick and easy the whole process was. I am usually pretty nervous about getting things like this done, but from the moment I met with Dr. Schmidt she made me feel like I was her only patient. I never felt rushed or like I was taking too much of her time. She listened and answered every one of my many questions even though I had already been through the process with my husband. I am now on day three and feel amazing. I was never in any pain at all. She performed the procedure under local anesthesia with a small cocktail of meds that just took the edge off. The whole surgery took less than an hour and a half from pre-op to post-op. Totally amazing! I would highly recommend Dr. Schmidt and her outstanding surgical team for any procedure."
