Longmont Plastic Surgeon, Dr. Peter Schmid realized early on in his career the need to procure a progressive understanding of artistic subtleties in human aesthetic anatomy to provide his patients with optimal, yet natural-looking, results. As his practice evolved throughout the years, he continued to study art, drawing, and sculpting, developing a sophisticated understanding of aesthetics, function, and form.   Recognizing that medical school does not include a study of aesthetics, Dr. Schmid conceived and created Sculpting for Surgeons™.  In medical school doctors are exposed to live cadaver labs, but that doesn’t offer a surgeon the important understanding of aesthetic anatomy, harmony and balance.

Dr. Schmid explained that his anatomical sculpting lab uses live models and doctors work with a wire frame with the application of modeling clay to form muscles and proper contours of the human body.   Click the LINK to learn more.
