About St. Louis Plastic Surgery
With a small, close-knit staff here at Metropolitan Plastic Surgery, our patients experience a comfortable atmosphere and receive that all-important personal touch that is often missing from the mix in large medical practices.
Dr. Scheu and his St. Louis plastic surgery staff have been working together for years. They are accommodating, easy to talk to, always respectful and willing to help; they even offer to arrange evening and Saturday appointments for added patient convenience. All of these attributes reflect the practice philosophy of treating patients like family.
Our goal is to establish long-lasting relationships with our patients, so they feel comfortable returning over the years, for continuing care.
We are aware that cosmetic needs vary from patient to patient, and also evolve as we age. Patients can find comfort knowing that, in our practice, we offer a wide range of treatments, both non-invasive and surgical. For those who are not ready to make surgical corrections for the face and/or body, the non-invasive options include microdermabrasion, mild chemical peels, Botox and “filler” (Radiesse and Juvederm) injections, and Fraxel laser rejuvenation, which can be applied to virtually any area of the face and body.
St. Louis Plastic Surgery Procedures
For our patients who are looking toward a surgical correction or improvement, Dr. Scheu is Board Certified in Plastic Surgery and performs all of the sought-after procedures. These include facelift, browlift, eyelid surgery (blepharoplasty), breast augmentation, breast lift, “tummy tuck” (abdominioplasty), armlift (brachioplasty), ultrasonic liposuction, and laser lipo procedure.
With advances in sedation and pain control, many procedures can be performed in our state-of-the-art (in-office), St. Louis plastic surgery operatory, under local anesthesia, and Dr. Scheu is very proficient in the “awake” facelift technique. This is attractive to those who do not wish to be “put under” (general anesthesia), and has the added benefit of saving our patients the cost of operating room time and anesthesia services at a hospital. However, some surgical corrections require general anesthesia, and for these cases, patients may choose to have their procedures performed at one of the seven hospitals and surgery centers where Dr. Scheu has staff privileges.
From the first contact with our St. Louis plastic surgery practice and throughout their care, our patients are treated professionally and confidentially. Our staff and doctor strive to help our patients attain their goals in rejuvenation of the face and body, whether it be just one, or multiple areas of concern. From the traditional treatments to the most up-to-date, from non-invasive treatments to the major cosmetic procedures, our practice offers patients the complete spectrum of cosmetic improvements. In addition to our extensive treatment choices, we also understand that cost is of concern to many. To help make life-changing, cosmetic services a possibility for more patients, we offer multiple financing options at our St. Louis plastic surgery location. Any one of our knowledgeable staff will be happy to assist you throughout the financing process. We also accept MasterCard and Visa.
