Patient Testimonials

Patients of Dr. Peter Schmid are more than pleased with their procedures at the Institute of Aesthetic Plastic & Reconstructive Surgery, as our testimonials illustrate.

I found Dr. Schmid to be a very professional, thorough and compassionate physician. He never was in a rush during my visits and he took the time to answer all of my many questions. His staff was also super kind, supportive, and friendly, and I always felt like I had a new batch of girlfriends by the time I was done with my visits. I also liked the fact that they have a “privacy” entrance where you can enter the office unseen by other patients in the waiting room. I have total confidence in Dr. Schmid, and recommend him highly for any procedure you would like to have.


I have seen many plastic surgeons due to my continuous traveling and my congenital birthmarks. Dr Schmid has improved my appearance more than any doctor in the United States. Besides this attribute he and his staff are sincere, kind and professional.

Cheryl M.

It has been a year since Dr. Schmid fixed my Deviated Septum. It was the best decision and worth every penny! It was fun to be able to smell flowers over the spring and summer and food cooking over the holidays for the 1st time in many years!

Scott F. (Functional Nose Surgery)

Dr. Schmid, Lora, Kristy, Jenny and the whole team are exceptional! Dr. Schmid miraculously fixed my nose and I am forever grateful.

Minda P. (Nose Surgery)

I loved my experience meeting up with Diana Bunker and the crew. The place was better than I expected! Diana helped me with many questions I had about the services offers there. Super helpful! The center is so clean and professional and I felt relaxed and it was a nice environment to be part of. I like all they have to offer there and the products that are available rock. Good stuff all around! Thanks again Diana!

Jodie (Microdermabrasion)

I have been debating for a while whether or not to write a review about this office. I didn’t want to be biased since I have worked with Dr. Schmid for 11 years in surgery. I can honestly say that his surgical skills are second to none. After all of these years, he is still shocking me with his skill, vision, attention to detail and his beautiful outcomes. He always has patient safety as a top priority and his demeanor is calm, professional and respectful. He is an incredible surgeon and man in general, bottom line. 

But then my daughter became a patient. So I was able to see a different side of him as well as meet the office staff. Every single one of them brings something wonderful to the office. They are knowledgeable, kind, respectful and will not cut corners. They are on top of it. We had an excellent experience there.

I have recently received a hydrafacial and purchased Skinceuticals products and have loved it all. So whether you are needing anything from skincare, to a serious surgical procedure, Dr. Schmid and his staff will take care of you.

Lyndsey (Rejuvenating Facial, Plastic & Reconstructive Surgery)

Thank you for the HydraFacial! I admit that I wouldn't have tried it had you not recommended it. I trust you and so I feel good about trying new things, whether it's SkinCeuticals or the awesome HydraFacial. I am always so impressed with everyone in your office. I really feel comfortable and well taken care of. The HydraFacial was so relaxing! I was having a pretty stressful day and it was a real pick-me-up. I was surprised how 30-minutes HydraFacial could make my face look and feel fresher and better!

Joanne (Microdermabrasion, Rejuvenating Facial, Acne Fighting Facial, Sensitive Skin Facial)

What a great crew! I went to a follow-up appointment and Dr. Schmid squeezed me in for a face "tune-up" whichg was not scheduled. I was so gratelful that he made time for me. Everyone is very kind and helpful. I recommend this place highly and I will come back. Thank you Dr. Schmid and your wonderful crew!


Dr. Peter Schmid is wonderful. He and the staff are exceptionally caring, professional and friendly. I highly recommend Dr. Schmid and his clinical spa!

Phyllis(Blepharoplasty, Forehead Lift, Brow Lift, Injectable Fillers, Fractional CO2 Laser Skin Rejuvenation, Intense Pulsed Light, IPL, Rejuvenating Facial, Voluma XC, Plastic & Reconstructive Surgery, Volbella Injectable Filler)

This is absolutely the best place for improvement. I love my results and everyone here!

Vera(Face Lift Rhytidectomy, Injectable Fillers, Rejuvenating Facial, Micropeel 30/Micropeel Plus 30, Perfect Peel, Voluma XC, Plastic & Reconstructive Surgery, Volbella Injectable Filler)

I don't think I've ever been to an office that has treated me with such care, kindness, and support like the Institute of Aesthetic Plastic & Reconstructive Surgery. EVERYONE is professional, and just totally wonderful. 

Dr. Schmid takes his time giving his evaluation, and is so caring and explains everything during every procedure. He is very kind and is a true artist. Lora is a just a gem, and so are the other ladies that take care of all the clients. You can tell that they all have a great relationship with each other.  If I have any problems, I know that they are just a phone call away. Thank you all so much for your kindness. The best form of advertising is word of mouth, and I will always mention this Institute!

Geraldine (Fractional CO2 Laser Skin Rejuvenation, Plastic & Reconstructive Surgery)

Debbie is amazing! Since I have been seeing her the milia count on my face has significantly decreased. She has achieved results like no other aesthetician I have seen before Thank you!

Linda (Rejuvenating Facial)

I always have a lovely experience. The staff are personable and knowledgable. Dr. Schmid is a gifted artist. I have complete trust in him. I especially love how devoted he is to educating himself, his staff and his patients.

Robin (Botox Cosmetic Injections, Injectable Fillers, Rejuvenating Facial, Acne Fighting Facial, Sensitive Skin Facial, Pigment Balancing Peel, Perfect Peel, Voluma XC, Volbella Injectable Filler)

I just want to tell you guys, THANK YOU! Every time I come in or call your staff, I am treated with the utmost respect which is very much appreciated. As far as Dr. Peter, I love coming in to see him, it's like I'm coming to see my buddy! Have a great day!

Bill (Blepharoplasty for Men)

Dr. Schmid's staff is friendly, personable and professional. A BIG plus for any medical practice. Dr. Schmid was kind, considerate, polite and quite attentive to my inquiries. His professional manner and expertise has my full confidence.

I had a {fractional / Matrixd} laser resurfacing of my skin and am absolutely delighted by the results. My confidence and self-assurance has returned, AND I can leave the house without any makeup on my face. Relief and satisfaction knows no bounds!

Thank you, Dr. Schmid. I am a grateful patient.


Patti (Fractional CO2 Laser Skin Rejuvenation)

The experience I had and the treatment I received were beyond exceptional!!! I would highly recommend Dr. Schmid and his staff!

Pat (Blepharoplasty, Face Lift Rhytidectomy)

"Excellent on-going support! The experience was very smooth as well as the recovery. Thorough information was provided at all stages of the planning and recovery. Thank you!

Charlotte (Face Lift Rhytidectomy)

Dear Dr. Schmid,

We cannot thank you enough for your help in making Brady's ears look more natural. I have known for years that you have a true gift and we have been so blessed to have you share that gift with Brady. Honestly, for the first time in his life, I look at him and don't see or focus on his ears. I see his smile, his freckles, his hair and best of all, his self-confidence and pride. Thnak you for helping me help him find that.

Please pass on our gratitude to your entire office staff for their hard work, patience and dedication. We worked with Lora and Kelsea the most, but know that the others helped along the way, too.

The Bearson Family: Rebecca, Brady, Brad and Brooke

From Brady:

Dr. Schmid, thank you for fixing my ears. I love them. You're the best. -Brady

Brady (Otoplasty)

"For over 3 years I had been contemplating what to do with my "crepey neck." I finally made an appointment to see Dr. Schmid, and he discussed with me what a neck lift could do for me. The neck lift would include a lower face lift.

I was very surprised at the lack of pain after this surgery. 

I would suggest to anyone who is thinking about this procedure to get a consultation now. Know what the options are. The staff is wonderful, and Dr. Schmid is very skilled, informative and reassuring. 

I am so delighted with the results of my procedure. My neck looks youthful and normal again.

Norma (Face Lift Rhytidectomy)

Services, treatment, communications, results, dissemination of information, etc., all outstanding! I feel like I am a part of the Schmid office family.

Karen (Blepharoplasty, Face Lift Rhytidectomy)

Dr. Schmid is passionate about his work and his patients. Because of this, he was attentive to my concerns and explained them in a conscientious manner. He exceeded my expectations, this securing my return. His office staff was compassionate, kind and very knowledgable.

Pamela (Botox Cosmetic Injections)

The office is lovely...private and relaxing, nice music. Staff extremely friendly and professional. Dr. Schmid's "bedside manner" is outstanding.

My first time out with friends, my BFF said she was looking around the room and everyone looked older except me! An aquaintance asked how old I was, and I told her 62. She replied, "I want to know what creams you are using on your face!" Someone else saw a recent picture of me and told me I look like a teenager (ha ha!).  

So, thank you. I highly recommend Dr Schmid and staff to anyone.

Sherry (Face Lift Rhytidectomy)

Debbie performed microdermabrasion along with a multi-phased facial, face and hand massage. Her treatment made me feel exquisite. Relaxing, deep and thorough, my skin feels and looks clearer, cleaner, softer and smoother than ever before! I give Debbie a 5-star rating and highly recommend her. She is highly skilled and delivers precision treatments with tenderness, care and gentleness.

Dana (Microdermabrasion)

I am a physician and have been a patient of Dr. Schmid. I can say that he is an exemplary physician. I have been an ER doc for the past 14 years, and worked with many doctors from multiple specialties. Dr. Schmid is one of the few who cares and has come to the hospital in the middle of the night, worked for free to save patients' lives with emergency surgery, when no one else would come in.

He is also the cream of the cream when it comes to his skills. He isn't just a doctor, he's an artist. I had a nose fracture, deviated septum and altered cheek bone from some injuries as a teen (I used to play rugby). I had surgery from two other doctors (one from Kaiser and the other one of Manhattan, NYC's top surgeons). I had given up hope, but gave it one more try and went to Dr. Schmid. He fixed my face, and I look normal again. I wish I had gone to him first. Surgery isn't easy, you want someone with artistic skill, not just book smarts. Someone who can fine-tune your surgery after it's done using all the tools in the toolbox (dermal fillers, lasers, etc.) to make sure you get the best results possible. This is that doctor.

Caleb (Plastic & Reconstructive Surgery)

Debbie did a fabulous job with my microdermabrasion and facial product recommendations! My skin has never looked better!!!  Thank you!

Donna (Microdermabrasion Series of 4)

My dermaplaning treatment and facial with Debbie Torres was absolutely luxurious! She has a gentle touch and I left the treatment extremely relaxed. 

(Dermaplaning and Rejuvenating Facial Treatments were performed.)

Debbie (Dermaplaning)

Thank you so much for the words of encouragement. Thank you for making me the best version of myself and giving me confidence. You are truly an artist.

Alley (Rhinoplasty Nose Surgery)

Everything was great! Surgery went well and everyone in the office was professional and very pleasant to work with. 

William (Surgical Removal of Mouth and/or Throat Tumors)

I can't recommend Dr. Schmid and his staff highly enough! My MOHS surgery (surgery for the removal of skin cancer) looks great and I felt very cared for, in a pofessional but very warm manner.

Beth (Plastic & Reconstructive Surgery)

Thank you for the excellent job! You far exceeded my expectations, and I will continue to use you for all of my future procedures. Your understanding of what I wanted was spot-on. 

Thank you again!

Pam (Blepharoplasty)

I can't stress enough our satisfaction and complete contentment with Dr. Peter Schmid and all the staff at IAPRS (Institute of Aesthetic Plastic & Reconstructive Surgery, LLC). I have used Dr. Schmid's services / expertise many times over the years and think he is a wonderful doctor and such a compassionate caregiver.

Lora is always amazing -love her! The surgical staff and anesthetist were so awesome and caring. I would so highly recommend this practice to anyone!

Jill (Liposuction & Body Contouring, VASER High Definition Liposculpture)

Fabulous! The best on the planet! Dr. Schmid is a true artist. I am a professional artist myself, so this was a huge factor in choosing Dr. Schmid. He is kind and gentle, extremely personable and sensitive. I had a great result! And his staff is equally amazing!

Lisa (Injectable Fillers)

I just wanted to send in a few comments regarding my experience with Dr. Schmid and his office staff.

From my first call to the office, Lora has been so helpful. She is knowledgeable about what services are provided and couldn't have been more supportive and friendly. 

My consultation with Dr. Schmid was both informative and encouraging. He patiently listened to all of my concerns. My recent Juvederm (injectable filler) treatment was phenomenal! I have had this done by a few other doctors in the past, and this was by far the best. He has a unique method that provides amazing results. He again addressed my concerns and used his expertise to result in smooth, erased lines that looked balanced.

I have never had a treatment that produced such natural-looking results. I am looking forward to my future treatments at Dr. Schmid's office!

Thank you!

Elaine (Injectable Fillers)

I feel amazing! Thanks to Dr. Schmid and his wonderful staff for helping me look and feel so much younger and more vibrant. Everyone makes you feel so welcome and a part of the family. I highly recommend them and will continue to get all of my aesthetic services there.

ps a special thanks to Debbie for all the support and extra time to answer all of my questions before the procedures.

Barb (Injectable Fillers, Rejuvenating Facial, Microneedling Collagen Induction Therapy)

Post MOHS surgery reconstruction:

"Miracle Worker Plastic Surgeon" Dr. Peter Schmid!

In July 2013 I had to have a basal cell carcinoma (skin cancer) removed from the left side of my nose. This took several hours of testing after each removal of the skin by Dr. Steinbaugh (dermatologist) in Boulder, CO. When he was finished, I had a nickel-sized hole in my nose. 

Dr. Steinbaugh sent me to see plastic surgeon Dr. Peter Schmid to put me back together. Dr. Schmid did a miracle! I have always worn makeup and taken care of my face. This was the most devastating thing to happen to me in my 72 years. Dr. Schmid did what is called a flap, cutting my skin beside my left eyebrow up to and a bit above the hairline. He then reversed the skin down to the opening of my nose, turned it to fit over the opening and attached it to my nose. . . now no one would ever have known I had such drastic surgery. 

Dr. Peter Schmid is an extremely talented man and shows great respect to his patients. I would recommend him for any type of plastic surgery you may need. He actually made me look better than my years. His staff is lso wonderful. . . in all honesty, a heartfelt thank you!

Sharon (Rhinoplasty Nose Surgery, Face Lift Rhytidectomy)

Absolutely awesome! Shouting from the rooftops. Being new to this part of the country, everyone has been more than exceptional. The staff is always cheerful and encouraging. Dr. Schmid has been more than accomodating. I am forever grateful to you.

K.S. (post Bells Palsey / ER visit)

K.S. (Injectable Fillers)

I have seen Dr. Peter Schmid on three occasions for Botox and fillers. I have also been to three other clinics in the Boulder area for the same treatments. My honest feedback is that the overall experience, value and care I receive at Dr. Schmid's office is superior to other clinics. Dr. Schmid is highly skilled in his application of fillers and Botox. He takes a lot of extra time to make the best use of products so that I get the same or better results than other clinics have with more than twice the product and cost. Plus, he makes the treatments as painless as possible, and spends a lot of time making sure I get the results I am expecting. I never feel rushed while I am there, nor am I kept waiting or wondering about where I am in the process. The staff is friendly and genuinely caring, with a high degree of professionalism, organization and knowledge.

Julie (Botox Cosmetic Injections, Injectable Fillers)

I have been coming to Dr. Schmid's office for several years now and have had several procedures done. Today I enjoyed a facial with (aesthetician) Debbie. I am also an aesthetician but will admit that this was the best facial I have ever had! Debbie is very professional and treated my skin with amazing products. I absolutely recommend her services.

"I am extremely pleased with results of my cosmetic procedures performed by Dr. Schmid. He's also kind and concerned as well as a talented surgeon. Kudos to the helpful and friendly office staff. I would recommend Dr. Schmid to anyone."

Kim (Blepharoplasty, Face Lift Rhytidectomy)

"Nobody believes I had a facelift, it looks so natural! Dr. Schmid does a fantastic job!"

Jean (Face Lift Rhytidectomy)

"Dear Damon (Certified Registered Nurse Anesthetist): OMG I have not had the positive experience with anesthesia that I had this time. Thank you! It felt so good not to be nauseous and to be able to eat after surgery. If I ever need surgery in the future for anything, I'm going to ask for you to provide the anesthesia!"

Diane (CO2 Laser Skin Rejuvenation)

"To the Medical Staff at Dr. Schmid's office: You are all the best! Thank you for taking such good care of me, for your patience and for answering my questions."

Diane (CO2 Laser Skin Rejuvenation)

"Thank you so much for the results I got from the cosmetic procedures you performed. I am grateful for the care you take with your patients, your professionalism, and your honesty." --Diane

Diane (CO2 Laser Skin Rejuvenation)

"I would highly recommend Dr. Peter Schmid for any of the services he performs. And the staff is outstanding."

April (Blepharoplasty, Face Lift Rhytidectomy)

"I feel so fortunate to have a doctor as talented as Dr. Schmid!"

Rachel (Face Lift Rhytidectomy)

Thank you for an amazing experience from start to finish! Though I've known you for years, I came to you for a serious and life-changing surgery. In the consultation, I was very pleased with your integrity and professionalism. Your talent as a surgeon seems God-given -it is so remarkable. I truly could not be happier with the outcome you gave me! I believe it is perfect for me and the structure of my face. You have changed my life with your work and I simply cannot express my sincere gratitude. It's been an honor to be your patient! You have exceeded my expectations.

Erin (Blepharoplasty, Rhinoplasty Nose Surgery, Face Lift Rhytidectomy)

Dr. Schmid is a distinguished artist AND surgeon. He does great work, way beyond my expectations. Thumbs up!"

Linda (Face Lift Rhytidectomy)

At the age of 43 years old I was diagnosed with sleep apnea. My presciption was a CPAP machine which worked good for me for about two years. I decided that it was time to see if any surgeries would eliminate that machine out of my life. A friend of mine from Longmont named Wendy referred me to Dr Schmid, she had told me that this doctor had saved her dad's life. The surgery involved removing my uvula, tonsils and I had a deviated septum. Dr. Schmid did an awesome job on me. This surgery was almost 4 years ago and I have never needed that CPAP machine again. Thank you Dr. Schmid and your staff for an excellent job you did on me.


I've been seeing Dr. Schmid for over 10 years. I completely trust him and he is an artist. I started with Botox then added fillers and the Obagi skin care product line. A year ago I had a Matrix laser treatment that took at least five years off of my face. Initially we planned to do a more invasive procedure and he actually felt it was not the right treatment. If you want the most talented and honest cosmetic surgeon put Dr. Schmid first on your list. Thanks for the many years of service. There will be many more to come.


The level of service from the moment I arrived for my first consultation to the day of surgery and after has been highly professional, courteous, and caring. Your office is comfortable and inviting and the staff knowledgable and caring and the amount of time provided by Dr. Schmid and surgical team was assuring.

I really felt as though you all cared about my concerns which really gave me a lot of encouragement. You made my intimidating decision for surgery not so scary and rather, well...pleasant!

Thank you for your support and thank you for  making me look better. I love the results!

Brian (Rhinoplasty for Men)

Dr. Peter Schmid,

Thank you so much for the wonderful experience with the injectables. I really appreciate all the time you spent with us going over all of the options. I am very pleased with the results! I look forward to seeing you again.

Warm regards,


Beth (Botox Cosmetic Injections, Injectable Fillers)

Wonderful Doctor! I decided to have a rhinoplasty because of my bulbous nasal tip. Dr. Schmid created a rounded tip graft from my own cartilage, and it looks great.

Undisclosed (Rhinoplasty Nose Surgery)

I'm 53 years old. Five months ago I had fat transfer from my hips to my cheeks and eyes. It was definitely worth it, and much less invasive/expensive than a face I look closer to late 30s than 50s.

Lynda (Fat Transplantation)

Thank you so much for the results I got from the cosmetic procedures you performed. I am grateful for the care you took, your patience, your professionalism and your honesty.

To the Medical Staff, You are all the best! Thank you for taking such good care of me, for your patience in answering all of my questions and your friendliness. And to Damon (Certified Nurse Anesthetist), I have not had such a positive experience with anesthesia as I had with you. It was so good not to be nauseous and be able to eat after surgery. If I ever need surgery for anything in the future, I am going to ask that you provide anesthesia.

Thanks so much to all!

Diana (Blepharoplasty, Face Lift Rhytidectomy, Fat Transplantation , Fractional CO2 Laser Skin Rejuvenation)

I am a 62 year old woman.  Since I was a child I was an outdoor person. Lots of years in the sun and years on swim team.  I didn't use sunscreen. In fact, I believe baby oil was my choice of tanning cream. I also was a smoker which did damage to my skin as well as too much sun exposure. I have had two cancer spots surgically removed, and expected to have more appear as time went on. 

I was referred by my dermatologist to the Institute of Aesthetic Plastic & Reconstructive Surgery to have a consult with Dr. Schmid.  He explained many different procedures that would fit my expectations. It was amazing to see what could be done to the damage I had done over the years.

The atmosphere at his office is like a family. You are welcomed with open hearts and feel very comfortable right away.  Everything is explained in detail and Dr. Schmid takes all the time you need to have all your questions answered.

I chose to have the Matrix Fractional CO2 Skin Resurfacing.  This treatment fitted my needs as far as destroying cancer cells, plus leaving my skin smooth and youthful.  Dr. Schmid took before and after pictures. I have to say I was so amazed and happy with the results. The procedure itself was done with minimum discomfort.  The staff was so supportive and kind.  I went home right after it was completed with very clear instructions and the assurance that if any questions or concerns came up I could call any time. I have also been introduced to several different lines of skin care products which I chose to keep my skin looking good. The number one product is sunscreen everyday rain or shine.  

I am grateful that I had this treatment and thank Dr. Schmid and all the wonderful people in his office.  My family and friends are so impressed. They have said not only do you look younger, but more vibrant.


I am absolutely satisfied with my entire experience. Dr. Schmid and Lora are extremely helpful, professional and knowledgeable. I never had any doubts or concerns. I knew I was in very competent hands. Thank you!

Undisclosed (Face Lift Rhytidectomy)

After having a CO2 treatment and now seeing the results, I only wish I would have done it sooner, after my first consultation with Dr. Schmid. The morning of the treatment, I was feeling a little reticent, anxious about the down time and the swelling etc., but the staff was so reassuring and Dr. Schmid is always calm and gentle while being confident about the results. I so appreciate how honest he and Lora were about the expected down time, and equally important, I value Dr. Schmid's professional approach in taking all necessary precautions. Yes, I would have the treatment done again because the new face that is daily being revealed is uplifting to my spirit and to my personal confidence.

Patricia (Fractional CO2 Laser Skin Rejuvenation)

I was very pleased with the attention, kindness and result of the whole works! Thank you!

Undisclosed (Face Lift Rhytidectomy)

Extremely happy with my outcome! Dr. Schmid really listened to what I wanted, and the whole procedure went even better than than I would have expected. Thanks! And Lora, you're great!

Undisclosed (Face Lift Rhytidectomy)

Everything went so well! Thank you for all of your time. I certainly have no regrets!

Lindsi (Vivite Peel)

The surgery went beautifully with fantastic results. Thank you Dr. Schmid and staff!

Undisclosed (Face Lift Rhytidectomy)

I had a wonderful experience and will refer my friends to Dr. Schmid, and I'll continue to return for additional treatments. Excellent service and help.

Tamara (Injectable Fillers)

Thank you Dr. Schmid and staff! I am very satisfied with my results from Juvederm. I feel more confident about myself. Again, thank you!

Undisclosed (Injectable Fillers)

Thanks for the attention to detail and patience in answering all of my questions. I learned a lot!

Peg (Botox Cosmetic Injections)

Thank you for taking such good care of me. Remember that I "freaked out" prior to the injections, but you all were great! And, I'm very satisfied with my results.

Undisclosed (Injectable Fillers)

After many years of sun damage and stress to my skin, I had wrinkles! I hated that they made me look old.  I admit I was afraid to do the laser surgery after viewing some pictures the day after of people that had it done.  After a year of thinking about it, I decided to go for it.  All I can say is my fears were so much worse than the actual procedure.  I had no pain during the procedure at all!  In the first week of recovery I could tell that most of the wrinkles were gone.  Now it is 4 1/2 months later and I love my new face.  I feel so much more confident about myself when I see people.  Dr Schmid exceeded my expectations.  I wouldn't hesitate to do it again if at sometime I decide I need it.

Jean (Fractional CO2 Laser Skin Rejuvenation)

Dear Everyone, Thank you so very much for all of your kindness before, during and after surgery. Each one of you made the whole experience painless. I appreciate each one of you.


Dr. Schmid, I truly believe your talent as a plastic surgeon is a gift, and you are so versatile in all of the different procedures you perform. It is highly admirable. Thank you for being the sincere person you are and for being honest and personable. These qualities set you far apart from other doctors. Also, your staff is wonderful! I have nothing but the best to say about you and your staff.

LoraI’ve had to talk with you many times over the phone. I appreciate how helpful, informative and friendly you’ve been. You are so sweet!

Aside from being one the most kind, gentle, caring and giving doctors I know, Dr. Peter Schmid is an amazing Plastic Surgeon and sculptor. Ironically, one of the best compliments and evidence of the skill of a plastic surgeon is that nobody knows you have had surgery. Recently, I had a Matrix fractional CO2 laser procedure and upper blepharoplasty (eyelid surgery) by Dr. Schmid. After only two weeks, the result was dramatic. Friends and family kept telling me how great I looked but could not figure out what was least not until I told them. What great fun!!! I heard, "Have you lost weight? Have you changed your hair style?" They were surprised to find out that I had surgery and I know of at least six women who are interested in having the same procedures performed by Dr. Schmid.

There is a commercial on television featuring Carrie Fisher's weight loss and she said, "Thank you for letting me be pretty one more time".....I know...I guess that is how I feel...I actually take a little more time finding flattering clothing and a bit more time with my makeup......Now, when I look in the mirror, instead of thinking, Why bother?, I find the experience enjoyable and fun. I get the chance to be someone other than just my boys mother and my husband's wife: I feel more like me again. That is one of the most priceless gifts and one that I hope you give yourself as well. I know that Plastic Surgery can be a scary proposition, but in the hands of a doctor as skilled as Dr. Peter Schmid, you would never regret your decision.

Lori (Blepharoplasty, Fractional CO2 Laser Skin Rejuvenation)

I miss you guys. I will never forget how comfortable you all made me feel and how helpful you were when I had my surgery. It meant a lot to me when I was so far from home. Take care.

Rosita (Blepharoplasty)

Good day Lora, Rebecca and Dr. Schmid,

I wanted to let you all know how much I enjoyed the very informative lecture last nightit was wonderful. Dr. Schmid did a great job in presenting all the new anti aging procedures available. I found his personal thoughts and research very helpful as I find solutions to my personal aging. I am very comforted knowing he is my personal plastic & reconstructive surgeon. Dr. Schmid’s continuous research on new options and cosmetic suggestions was so helpful in understanding what works for me. I really appreciated the free skin care package / gift I won and I will use it. A great way to introduce a person to new skin care options. Thank you again and I felt the seminar was very worth my time now and especially for the future.

Dr. Schmid is not only a surgeon, he is an artist! My nose had a nickel-sized hole after MOHS (skin cancer removal) surgery. Dr. Schmid determined that a forehead flap and a cartilage graft would best remedy the injury. After the surgery, the nurses at the hospital remarked about the tiny sutures at the surgery site. One and a half years post surgery, people tell me they don’t notice that I had had surgery on my face. Scarring is minimal, and my nose is symmetrical. Thanks, Dr. Schmid!

Nancy (Forehead Lift, Brow Lift)

I was apprehensive walking in the door not knowing what was to happen. Dr. Schmid and his staff made me feel so very comfortable and explained in detail of my journey to come. Everyone cared from the start to the finish and all in between. And my results were more than I expected. He literally made me 10+ years younger, not only facial, but self, inner self. Remember, beauty is as beauty does! (I’m still wondering if these really are my ears).

Sharon (Blepharoplasty, Face Lift Rhytidectomy)

Dear Dr. Peter Schmid.

I am writing to commend you and your staff for the professional way every aspect of the clinic is operated. The staff is always friendly, caring, courteous, and knowledgeable. The facility is clean, comfortable, aesthetically pleasing, with lots of privacy provided.

I have never felt rushed through any appointments or phone calls; the staff has always been very patient in answering all my questions, alleviating any concerns well before any procedure. I have always been well informed of what to expect prior to, with excellent follow-up post procedure.

I have found your services to be unique in that I feel you have an eye for the details to each client’s special features, and how to enhance, refresh, and restore those features in the most natural way possible. I have always felt you to be compassionate, patient, caring, and friendly. After every visit to your clinic I leave feeling like a celebrity, having received lots of love and attention because every single person I interact with seems genuinely interested in me.

It has been an honor and a pleasure to be a part of your team as your client. I am so very appreciative of the efforts everyone makes for me to have a positive experience. Please accept my sincere thanks.

Terrie (Face Lift Rhytidectomy)

Dear All at Dr. Schmid’s: My heartfelt gratitude for the care you gave me on my procedure. You make my life so much better in so many ways.

Vera (Blepharoplasty, Fat Transplantation)

Lora and all the staff was very patient with me when I called with questions, when I was there for surgery, when I came in because I injured my left eye, when I had a mole removed.

Undisclosed (Blepharoplasty)

I am VERY pleased with the work Dr. Schmid did on me. I love my straight nose and can look at my profile with confidence for the first time in over 20 years. Not only do I love the outcome, but I loved the customer service I received from Dr. Schmid and his office staff. He was so kind and caring during all my visits to his office. I would recommend him to anyone!

Sheila (Rhinoplasty Nose Surgery)

I love your clinic and everyone in it! Dr. Schmid is a true artist and everyone is so helpful. I also love your SkinCeuticals and cosmetic products!
