“Great experience with Dr. Shultz and the staff at Upstate. My 13 year old had to have a suspicious mole removed from his forehead. We were nervous until we met Dr. Shultz and he made me and my son feel super comfortable and confident in the decision to move forward with the surgery. The procedure was seamless and they even played some music for my son during the procedure. Would highly recommend Dr. Shultz and the staff at Upstate. Great experience!”
– Stephanie B.
“Absolutely the best team of Doctors and Nurses anywhere to be found. From hand holding, in case your nervous 😬, to professionalism and skill; They are the ones to go to for your new look! I cannot recommend a better group to trust.”

Dr. Shultz

Dr. Kevin Shultz, M.D.

Dr. Kevin Shultz is a native Texan where he completed his education at the University of Texas, Texas A&M Health Science Center and then his combined Plastic Surgery training at Baylor Scott & White Healthcare/ Texas A&M. During this stint he has received many honors including Phi Beta Kappa, National Dean’s List, University honors list and was AOA at Texas A&M Health Science Center College of Medicine. To top this off he also received the Resident Researcher of the year while in his Plastic Surgery training as evidenced by his many publications during his residency and fellowship. Dr. Shultz is a Board Certified Plastic Surgeon in Aesthetic Surgery and Breast Reconstruction. He has given multiple national talks on the topic of breast revision surgery and is also a committee member with the American Society for Aesthetic Plastic Surgeons.

Dr. Shultz has an appreciation for creative design and artistic beauty. Throughout his life, he has enjoyed drawing, sculpting, and painting. As a youth, he made a Christmas ornament that was hung on the White House Christmas tree. He has also had his work displayed in the Dallas Museum of Art. After high school, his creative instincts initially led him toward a career in architecture. He received a full scholarship to Savannah College of Art and Design; however, decided to pursue medicine instead. During his medical and surgical training, his passion for surgery and artistic design fused into a career in plastic surgery.

Dr. Shultz has worked in many roles with children with Autism and has been involved in several overseas mission trips. He is a dedicated husband and father of four young children. We feel this type of compassion for his patients and family has been instrumental in building his plastic surgery practice in Greenville.

We at Upstate Plastic Surgery feel fortunate to have pulled him away from his Texas roots and the Plastic Surgery department at Baylor Scott and White where he was being heavily recruited.
