Body Essence Welcomes Dr. Robert Schmidt

This Fall, Body Essence will welcome Dr. Robert Schmidt to our team of skin and body care experts. With an established practice in Richmond, Dr. Schmidt will be at our Staunton location in the Maple Ridge shopping center monthly, splitting his time between both locations.

Dr. Schmidt brings with him a wealth of knowledge and experience in both cosmetic and reconstructive facial plastic surgery as well as specialized non-surgical treatments. Dr. Schmidt is excited to offer innovative surgical options to Staunton as he partners with our team at Body Essence.

A Delaware native, Dr. Schmidt received his undergraduate training in psychology at Duke University, graduating with honors. He received his medical degree from Baylor College of Medicine in Houston, Texas.

He then completed a residency in Otolaryngology-Head and Neck Surgery at Virginia Commonwealth University Health System in Richmond, Virginia. Following his residency, Dr. Schmidt completed his training with a prestigious fellowship in facial plastic surgery awarded by the American Academy of Facial Plastic and Reconstructive Surgery. Dr. Schmidt is board certified by both the American Board of Facial Plastic and Reconstructive Surgery and the American Board of Otolaryngology.

Dr. Schmidt fell in love with Augusta County in 2006 after spending several weeks as an intern taking care of a Staunton resident. Now, he is happy to be able to bring world class facial plastic surgery techniques to the valley. Previously, residents of Staunton and Augusta County would have to travel to Charlottesville or Richmond to receive treatments from a doctor with Schmidt’s credentials.

In addition to surgical consultations and pre- and post-operative care, Dr. Schmidt plans to offer procedures at Body Essence, such as upper lid blepharoplasties, eyelid lifts, and lower face and neck lifts using the PrecisionTx system. PrecisionTx is a minimally invasive in-office laser system that provides results akin to a face lift, without the stitches and excessive down time.

Together with our skilled professionals at Body Essence, Dr. Schmidt will offer the latest in anti-aging, beauty and wellness treatments to the Valley. We are very excited to welcome Dr. Schmidt to Body Essence clients!
