Meet Dr. Ronald Schuster


After graduating from Emory University with a Bachelor of Arts degree, Dr. Schuster earned his medical degree at the University of Maryland School of Medicine. He went on to complete a full five-year general surgery residency at Sinai Hospital in Baltimore. From there, Dr. Schuster served a three-year residency and fellowship program in plastic surgery at Washington University’s Barnes Hospital. During his time there, he developed professional ties with several world-renowned leaders in the field of cosmetic surgery. His work with these figures has afforded him the ability to select and incorporate the most effective treatments into his practice.
 As a cosmetic surgeon, Dr. Schuster utilizes this distinguished training to provide his patients in Baltimore, Maryland and the surrounding areas with the safest and most advanced treatments.
Dr. Schuster is an active member of several distinguished cosmetic surgery organizations including the American Society of Plastic Surgeons and the American Society for Aesthetic Plastic Surgery.

He was selected to be one of the initial clinical researchers for the implementation of breast implants consisting of Trilucent™ soybean oil. He was also honored with a certificate of excellence for his research on blood supply during various facelift surgery methods. The literature he produced through this work helped pave the way for other surgeons to identify and create safe facelift techniques. 
Dr. Schuster continues to share the extensive knowledge of surgical techniques he’s developed as a cosmetic surgeon by teaching at Johns Hopkins Hospital in Baltimore, Maryland. https://www.cosmeticsurgerybaltimore.com

Patient Testimonials

Dr. Schuster performed a rhinoplasty for me to correct multiple nose traumas from years of bumps and breaks. I am now 10 months out and his ability to keep me looking like me (only better) has been remarkable. I was always afraid I would emerge looking unlike myself, but the difference is positive for breathing and for my appearance. His staff and practice are wonderfully warm and provide comprehensive assistance through the process. Kate - D 05/08/18
I have used Dr. Schuster for a variety of procedures. He "hears" what you want and is an expert surgeon who is honest, sincere and wonderful to work with. I have no fear of looking or feeling "overdone" and I will travel any distance to make sure he is my plastic surgeon. He has addressed my cancer issues as well as cosmetic procedures. I feel valued by Dr. Schuster as well as his staff. I would give him the highest recommendation possible for every procedure I have had. - Gail Z 06/25/18
I need to do something about my sagging neck. Was referred to Dr. Schuster and couldn't be happier with the results. From the friendly staff at his office to the efficient and caring staff at Northwest Hospital, the procedure went perfectly. Now people come up to me and ask if I've lost weight or have I started working out? LOL Now I just need to start working out! Thanks Dr. Schuster! :) - Same S 07/02/18

Inverted Nipples

Breast Augmentation

Member Response:

The size of areolas can be made closer at the time of breast augmentation. Truly inverted nipples are never improved by just breast augmentation and need an additional procedure to correct them, which can certainly be done at the same time as the augmentation.

Male Breast Reduction

Breast Reduction

Member Response:

Almost all the breast tissue needs to be removed for great results. A small thin disc of tissue should be left directly beneath the nipple-areola in order to prevent retraction and a sunken nipple. Usually this tissue cannot be removed with just liposuction and must be excised directly. There is a variety of incisions that can be used for this. I favor the lateral pull through technique. Getting great results from gynecomastia correction is harder than it seems and I would advise taking your time in choosing your surgeon. Good luck.

Inquiry

Breast Lift

Member Response:

There are a few different breast lift procedures. Most of them still result in surface scars that go around the border of the areola, then vertically down to the crease and horizontally for a short distance along the crease. It is performed as an out patient procedure with a fairly easy recovery. If you are planning to travel abroad for the surgery I would recommend staying 7-10 days to be sure everything is healing well before you return. To answer your other question - some fat can be added to the small dimples. That could be done at the same time as your lift if you wanted.

Age restrictions?

Breast Lift

Member Response:

Some young women have breasts that do not appear youthful, either because of the size or sagging of the sagging skin. Breast lift operations are very successful with the trade off being the scars. If the operation is done well and the patient has good skin the scars should fade and become difficult to see. It is well worth it if the lift would make you feel more confident and comfortable in your own "skin". Good luck.

25 May 2018 After visiting a few different surgeons about breast augmentation, I decided to choose Dr. Schuster because he had so much experience and also made me feel comfortable in person. After a couple consultations, I also decided to go with Ideal Implants because of their natural feel and also because of the safety of the saline filling rather than silicone. After my surgery and a couple months of recovery, the implants look so natural and I couldn't be more happy with them. My friends have all commented on how natural everything looks and also feels! I would recommend the Ideal Implants for anyone thinking about breast augmentation. They give me a peace of mind that I wouldn't have with silicone implants while also feeling natural. I'd recommend Dr. Schuster and his team to anyone - they are great to work with and patient and understanding throughout the entire process.
28 Mar 2018 From the moment I met with Doctor I knew I was in the best possible hands. Immediately I could tell he was not going to be happy unless he achieved perfection. That's exactly what he did. It turned out better than I imagined. It's as perfect as perfect can be. I had no pain and was back to work in less than a week. Dr Schuster is the greatest. From the moment I met him in his office I was totally at ease and knew I was in the right place with a surgeon who's expectations were higher than mine. I could tell he was going to be such a perfectionist and that's exactly what he was. I would not change one thing about the experience. Everything went better than I could have ever imagined. Just want to mention, my surgery was on a Friday and Sunday I wore a big sweatshirt to cover my drain tubes and my wife and I went out to dinner. 2 days later. I felt really good.
Dr. Schuster was a fabulous! He understood my needs and addressed them without making me feel like they were not real! I wanted to have my neck lifted and to get rid of the excess skin. He suggested I should also tightening around my lower jaw line. I have loss a lot of elasticity and have a narrow thin face! The best is everyone thinks I looked rested or loss weight since it looks so natural!-REAL Self - Fit4You
