A Passion for Plastic Surgery
Dr. Schlechter was inspired to pursue a career in plastic surgery for Reading and Lancaster, PA residents by area plastic surgeon Dr. Sergio Proserpi, the original founder of the practice. Even as a child, Dr. Schlechter knew that plastic surgery was his calling, and he has dedicated his life to excellence in this field. He graduated from the prestigious University of Health Sciences/The Chicago Medical School in Chicago, Illinois. He completed a highly sought-after residency in General Surgery at Case Western Reserve University and Mount Sinai Medical Center in Cleveland, Ohio. He then returned to Chicago to complete his training in Plastic and Reconstructive Surgery at the University of Illinois-Chicago and Cook County Hospital. He was chief resident in both his general surgery and plastic surgery residencies. His five years of general surgery training go above and beyond what is required for a plastic surgeon, and demonstrate his commitment to exemplary care. He is board certified by the American Board of Plastic Surgery, and his professional affiliations include:
- American Society of Plastic Surgeons
- American Society for Aesthetic Plastic Surgery
- American Society for Laser Medicine and Surgery
- American College of Surgeons
- American Medical Association
- Pennsylvania Medical Society
- Berks County Medical Society
- Robert H. Ivy Society
Dr. Schlechter is consistently at the forefront of advanced techniques that improve patient safety, comfort, and results. He offers innovative approaches to breast procedures, body procedures and facial rejuvenation which expand a patient's range of options, and improve their recovery and outcome. He uses only local anesthesia and IV sedation for his surgeries, which shortens recovery time, reduces expense, and helps ease patient anxieties about general anesthesia.
Dr. Schlechter is proud that he has been able to build upon the strong reputation established by Dr. Sergio Proserpi. He has expanded the practice to include a state-of-the-art, on-site surgical facility and a separate, full-service medi-spa. By providing his patients the full range of both surgical and non-surgical options all in one facility, Dr. Schlechter can tailor a comprehensive treatment plan to meet your individual wants and needs.
