About Daniel J. Pyo

“One look at the website photo gallery of the Plastic Surgery Center at Summit Health shows why Drs. Peter Hyans, Reza Momeni, Daniel Pyo, and Daniel Schmid are among the busiest and most sought-after cosmetic and reconstructive surgeons in the New York metropolitan region. Uniquely, this is the only multi-surgeon practice in which every doctor is a New Jersey Monthly Top Doctor.

These board-certified, fellowship-trained surgeons, who work with Dr. Jain Joseph, provide state-of-the-art surgical and non-surgical cosmetic treatments for faces, noses, breasts, and bodies, along with skin tightening and high-end skin care through a licensed expert aesthetician. Their patients benefit from the many conveniences of the doctors being part of Summit Health, New Jersey’s largest multi-specialty medical group, yet still receive personalized care. Summit Health’s patient-focused partnerships with the area’s premier medical systems and cancer centers also enable the doctors to offer the most up-to-date care in reconstructive surgery.

All four surgeons perform the full scope of cosmetic plastic surgery and non-surgical facial rejuvenation. Dr. Momeni helps patients who are looking for natural results, using safe and proven techniques. He treats a large number of patients with non-surgical treatments only, such as Botox-type medications, fillers, lasers, peels, and skin-tightening devices. He also offers advanced surgical approaches with enhanced recovery for eyelid-, face-, and neck-lifting and rejuvenation. For those patients seeking to restore their body shape, he offers breast-lifting and enhancement, liposuction and tummy tuck surgery, and mommy makeover–style combination surgeries.

Dr. Schmid specializes in cosmetic surgery, reconstructive surgery, aesthetic breast surgery, and body contouring procedures such as abdominoplasty and liposuction. He also has expertise in surgical and non-surgical facial rejuvenation, including face-lift, eyelid-lift, neck-lift, soft-tissue filler, Botox®, and laser skin treatments. His leading-edge training in microsurgery enables him to offer the latest, most effective procedures for breast reconstruction, including autologous tissue flap reconstruction techniques (DIEP and TRAM) and implant-based reconstruction.

“We discuss any questions the patient may have and explain the procedure and recovery in detail,” says Dr. Schmid, who is co-chairman of Plastic Surgery at Overlook Medical Center in Summit. “Knowing what to expect helps alleviate anxiety. You can expect an open and caring environment. Both myself and our staff are always available to handle questions or concerns.”

Dr. Hyans, who is founder of the Plastic Surgery Center, focuses primarily on cosmetic surgery. “That involves procedures of all types, including surgical and non-surgical facial aesthetic surgery, as well as a full spectrum of breast and body contouring procedures,” he says. “I also still enjoy helping women who have had previous post-mastectomy reconstruction and now require revision breast surgery.”

Dr. Pyo specializes in body contouring procedures, abdominal wall reconstruction, wound care, and pediatric cleft lip and cleft palate surgery. Initially trained as a microsurgeon, he is extremely proficient in technology and has expertise in robotic surgery. He has served as chief of Plastic Surgery at Morristown Memorial Medical Center, where he has also been instrumental in developing the Craniofacial Deformities Center.

“We work hard together to learn what our patients need, to give honest answers and realistic explanations, and to get them ready for treatment from the first meeting all the way to several months later when we are comparing before-and-after photos and high-fiving each other!” says Dr. Momeni. “The honesty, integrity, and commitment of our team are the foundations of how we take care of patients.”
