Those who say not to judge a book by its cover will never experience the fun of discovering that The Grapes of Wrath contains no heaving bosoms, unicorns, or epic gunfights. Touch up your cover with today's Groupon: for $59, you get $150 toward a Botox, Restylane or Dysport treatment at Matthew Schulman, M.D. Plastic Surgery, whose office is conveniently located on East 87th Street at Madison Avenue, just a strong-armed stone's throw from Central Park, public transit, and ample parking.
Dr. Matthew Schulman is a board-certified plastic surgeon, an assistant professor of plastic surgery at the Mount Sinai School of Medicine, and a published medical scholar. As a boutique practice, Dr. Schulman's office is never crowded and guarantees a minimal wait time for each patient. Gratuitous grinners, frequent frowners, and those with a penchant for impersonating pet goldfish often find that their facial habits have left telltale lines. The nonsurgical treatments offered by Dr. Schulman are tailor-made to iron out creases, whittle down wrinkles, and give unsightly crow's-feet a French manicure. Botox ($15 per unit, $300 for a typical treatment area) and Dysport ($6 per unit, $300 for a typical treatment area) are injections that are meant to reduce existing facial lines and prevent the severity of future wrinkles, leaving results that last between three and six months, depending on the treatment. Restylane ($650 per syringe) lasts around nine months and is used to fill lines, wrinkles, and scars, and also to augment lips.
Treatments are subject to a medical evaluation, so patients should call ahead for a consultation.
Dr. Matthew Schulman won the 2009 Patients' Choice award. Matthew Schulman, M.D. Plastic Surgery has been featured in numerous magazines, newspapers, and academic journals, as well as on television shows, radio programs, and websites.
Dr. Schulman Plastic Surgery
It's not only his patients who have praise to sing for Dr. Matthew Schulman. The board-certified plastic surgeon is also a trailblazer, constantly researching new ways to refine his techniques and modernize existing procedures within the medical community. With publications in several peer-reviewed medical journals, he also presents his research at national conferences and serves as an assistant professor of plastic surgery at The Mount Sinai School of Medicine—his alma mater. But it's his patients who benefit the most from his extensive experience.
He and his team regularly perform more than 500 surgical procedures a year, focusing on the health, wellbeing, and cosmetic goals of each patient. But their treatments extend far beyond surgery, too. Working alongside the doctor, a licensed medical aesthetician offers advanced spa treatments like diamond-tipped microdermabrasion to smooth away uneven skin texture or fine lines. DermaPen micro-needling similarly improves skin tone as it jump-starts collagen production and radio-frequency treatments help contour stubborn body areas without invasive liposuction.
