NYC-based Dr. Matthew Schulman is a Board Certified Plastic Surgeon with a global following, renowned for his reputation in both surgical and non-surgical rejuvenation of the breast, face and body. Patients from all over the world flock to Dr. Schulman’s Upper East Side private practice for procedures ranging from breast augmentations to Brazilian butt lifts, and his own social media following is akin to the celebs for whom he provides nips and tucks, with millions of followers watching daily, real-time updates from his accounts across platforms. An innovator in his field, Dr. Schulman is recognized by his patients and peers for his advanced techniques, quality results and one-of-a-kind procedures.
Dr. Schulman received his medical degree from Jefferson Medical College in Philadelphia and completed his training in general surgery and plastic surgery at the prestigious Mount Sinai School of Medicine of New York University. A go-to for celebrities and east coast elites, Dr. Schulman’s practice is consistently on the cutting edge, improving on current techniques while consistently seeking newer procedures that can deliver even better results with faster recovery times.
Although Dr. Schulman doesn’t consider himself a “celebrity doctor,” but only a “doctor for celebrities,” People reported in 2016 that the New York City plastic surgeon has over one million viewers a day on his Snapchat stories documenting routine tummy tucks, breast lifts, nose jobs and daily procedures. “They’re seeing things as it’s actually happening,” says Dr. Schulman of his fascinated following on social media. “They watch me and they know me, they know my staff. It’s a way for people to decide if I’m the right doctor for them. And then a lot of people watch me who have no intention of me being their surgeon, but they’re educated about the procedure.” Dr. Schulman continues to use his platform to destigmatize plastic surgery, showing quick recoveries or documenting the instant results of non-invasive treatments. The broadcasting on social media is meant to benefit the patient, too. Dr. Schulman says that about 95% of his patients ask or agree to having their operation put on social media so they can watch and follow along after. Keeping the entire procedure private with explicit consent and securing patient anonymity ensures that every day is a learning experience for Dr. Schulman’s million-plus followers.
On the cutting-edge of new trends in the field, Dr. Schulman has presented his research at the national level, often invited to speak in education conferences for plastic and reconstructive surgery. His research has appeared in prestigious, peer-reviewed medical journals including Annals of Plastic Surgery, The Breast Journal, Plastic and Reconstructive Surgery and Journal of Shoulder and Elbow Surgery.
A frequent guest on the television show The Doctors, Dr. Schulman has become a household name touting the benefits and latest practices in his field. He has been featured in countless media to comment on current topics and trends in plastic and cosmetic surgery, routinely gracing the pages of In Touch, Life & Style, Star and Globe Magazine; and having appeared as an expert authority on dozens of shows spanning ABC, CBS, NBC, WPIX and FOX where he frequently offers expert opinion on the latest news in beauty and plastic surgery, often asked to debunk myths or differentiate between what is real and what is hype. Dr. Schulman has been awarded top national plastic surgery awards, including the prestigious Castle Connolly “Top Doctor,” “America’s Top Plastic Surgeon,” “America’s Top Doctor,” and US News and World Report’s “Top Doctor.” His bedside manner is equally praised, having been awarded the “Patients’ Choice Award” and “Most Compassionate Doctor Award.”
Dr. Schulman, as on his social media, uses his personal blog to debunk myths and report trending news in the world of plastic surgery and augmentation. His step-by-step analysis of procedures and frequently asked questions give potential patients a look inside his practice and offers educational advice before a consultation. With information ranging from procedural breakdowns to cost and efficacy, Dr. Schulman focuses on a veracious communication with every patient from the beginning of their journey through to recovery.
