What cosmetic surgery can realistically do for you


"Dear Dr. Buchanan,

I just wanted to thank you for the sweet letter that you sent me. It just verifies over and over who you really are and what you are all about. The two procedures you did on me are "holding up" extremely well; I know you were wondering about how I was feeling about the surgery processes a few years after the fact. I couldn't possibly be happier for the way you've helped me with the things that were bothering me, and the best part is that it's a permanent, positive change. The before, during, and follow up that I received from you and your office was top notch and it took a real load off my shoulders knowing that I was under the care of avery very "safe" competent doctor. I know that you do wonderful work on your patients having all various types of procedures."

Santa Barbara Plastic Surgeons Launch Responsive Mobile Website as a New Educational Resource

Santa Barbara plastic surgery, breast lift, breast implants, Santa Barbara breast augmentation, Dr. David Buchanan, Dr. Wesley Schooler

Drs. David Buchanan and Wesley Schooler’s new mobile website is designed to auto-adjust to any internet-capable device, making information comprehensive and easily accessible to web visitors.

Santa Barbara, CA – Drs. David Buchanan and Wesley Schooler have over 40 years of combined experience in breast augmentation and use that experience to provide their patients with custom-tailored and natural looking results. An integral ingredient to their success has been clear doctor-patient communication and discussing with each individual her unique goals and anticipated outcomes for the breast augmentation procedure. Recently, Drs. Buchanan and Schooler launched a new mobile website for their Santa Barbara plastic surgery practice with the goals of further enhancing doctor-patient communication during the consultation process as well as achieving results that continue to meet, and even exceed the expectations of their patients.

According to Drs. Buchanan and Schooler, patients who visit their practice having conducted some research prior to their initial consultation tend to be better equipped to articulate their questions and concerns about breast augmentation. The practice’s new mobile website is designed to deliver detailed information in an easily accessible and easily navigable format. Because the website is designed to auto-adjust to whatever device the patient is using to access the internet, the information is automatically calibrated in a way that optimizes the layout of the content.

Features of Drs. Buchanan and Schooler’s new mobile website include:

  • Procedural information about breast augmentation, breast reduction, breast lift, and breast revision
  • An outline of various options for breast implants
  • Patient testimonials
  • A photo gallery actual patients and their results
  • Financing options
  • One-touch email
  • One-touch phone call
  • An interactive map for office directions
  • Detailed biographies of the plastic surgeons

Drs. Buchanan and Schooler hope that their new mobile website will be used as a resource for both current and prospective Santa Barbara breast augmentation patients. By providing patients with a means to educate themselves in a format that is convenient as well as informative, Drs. Buchanan and Schooler believe breast augmentation consultations will increasingly be a time for constructive dialogue between doctor and patient, with each party collaborating to achieve a common aesthetic goal.

Botox and Fillers, What’s Best for You?

Considering Botox® to treat your fine lines and wrinkles? You may actually need a filler treatment instead. Products like JuvedermTM or Restylane® treat deep wrinkles and focus on areas of the face that Botox does not treat. A recent article by The American Society for Aesthetic Plastic Surgery (ASAPS) presents differences between the various types of filler. Not sure which is best for you? Contact our Santa Barbara Plastic Surgeons to scheduled a consultation today.
