Dr. Samuel Shatkin Jr. Introduction

Watch this video by Samuel Shatkin Jr., MD, a Board Certified Plastic Surgeon in Buffalo, NY as he discusses his education, experience, and what you can expect at our practice.

Hi, I’m Dr. Samuel Shatkin Junior from the Aesthetic Associates Center for Plastic Surgery. Thank you for coming to our website and learning more about our practice. At our facility, we have a full library and you’ll find it on our website of various videos that you can watch to help you learn more about the procedures that we perform.

As a board certified plastic surgeon, I can assure you that the information that you get from us when you come in for a consultation will be complete. And the other thing about our office also is that besides the surgical procedures, we offer non-surgical procedures. So in our facility, we don’t have to buttonhole you into a particular procedure. We can offer you a variety of things and various options as well to help you achieve the look you’re trying to achieve. My background in plastic surgery started when I performed general surgery.

After completing general surgery, then I trained at the University of Tennessee, Memphis, where I did three years of plastic surgery training, including a fellowship. During that time, I was able to get experience with all aspects of plastic surgery, both the aesthetic as well as non-aesthetic, procedures. And at this point in my career, I’m focusing only on the aesthetic procedures. We offer ambulatory surgery in our fully accredited ambulatory surgery center. We also perform all the non-surgical procedures that we treat in our office as well.

When necessary, I can take the patient to a local hospitals where I’m on staff to perform some of the more involved procedures when necessary. So please come and enjoy the experience at the Aesthetic Associates Center for Plastic Surgery. Myself and my staff will be happy to take care of you.
