Richard Swift MD, New York's Premier Plastic Surgeon. Brazilian Butt Lift, Liposuction, Tummy Tuck. Breast Implants, Labiaplasty and Fat Transfer. Dr. Swift is just amazing!! His office is beautiful, welcoming and has a very relaxing feel. His office manager Stefanie is enthusiastic, helpful, knowledgeable, friendly and kind. Dr. Swift educated me on my different options to produce the desired outcome I was looking for. He took his time to explain to me what he would be doing for my fine lines and wrinkles and what I can expect. He had a wonderful demeanor, he was thorough and I felt comfortable. Most importantly, I look fabulous!! I highly recommend Dr. Swift for your botox, your fillers and any/all of your anti-aging needs!! I recently called to make an appointment with Dr. Swift to discuss Botox. I spoke with his lovely office manager Stefanie, who happens to be the most warm welcoming person I ever met. I should start by saying this was the first time getting Botox so I must add how nervous I was. Upon arriving at my appointment Stefanie greeted me and we had the nicest conversation which helped me feel super comfortable. After a few short minutes Dr. Swift greeted me with such a nice hello. We discussed what brought me in and what I was looking for. Dr. Swift gave some recommendations and the rest is history. He is amazing at what he does and I am so happy with the results. He is a genius and makes you feel so great about wanting to enhance your beauty. So thank you Stefanie and Dr.Swift I had a wonderful experience! Looking forward to seeing you both in 3 months! I went to Dr Swift to try Juviderm as I am looking for a new dr in the city. He was patient, took time to answer questions, go over options and to educate me on my options. This is important to me as I am in medical sales and I like to learn. He did the best job of anyone who has given me fillers. I will absolutely be back as he was the best I have had. Great staff- clean office- nice bedside manner. 2 months ago, I had a breast lift done. For years, I kept dreaming of getting the procedure but kept putting it off. My daughter had a breast augmentation with Dr. Swift 1 year ago. I was surprised and shock as to how natural they look, with no scars after the healing process! Wow, I remembered thinking that this was amazing. I had to write this review and share the wonderful, amazing and great experience I had with Dr. Swift and his team. By far, this really was the best decision I made. Dr. Swift is a person that listens, sympathizes and very caring of how you feel and what you want done. I can’t thank him enough, I feel and look great! Stephanie, is wonderful and an important part of the process, she was the first person I met, a pleasure to deal with, I felt like I’m part of the family. The follow up visits have been from every 2 weeks, to 6 weeks each time Dr. Swift notice the great improvements and the great job he’s done. Thank you, Dr. Swift, I’m a lifetime supporter and 100% satisfied with your hard work and diligent desire for perfection! You’ll not regret your experience. I am a woman of some years – it was time to do my lower lids – they call it a lower blepharoplasty. The experience from the first consult has been top draw- Stephanie was a gem and he answered all of my questions- my recover time was amazing – I had interviewed 6 plastic surgeons and chose him because his energy was gentle – I brought along a friend to my second consult because I had more questions and she booked him for her upper lids- All around a great experience and i look amazing – I highly suggest Dr. Swift for any procedure that you might need- He is the top. As a thirty eight year old woman, I have been treated by a handful of plastic surgeons and have had consultations with numerous doctors over the years. I can enthusiastically recommend Dr. Richard Swift as the very best I have encountered. I discovered him using Google (Yelp), and it didn’t take me long to understand what all the praise was for. For me, there are three crucial factors when evaluating a doctor: talent, personality and professionalism. Dr. Richard Swift is outstanding in all of these domains. From the moment I stepped into his office and was greeted by his welcoming and cheerful assistant, I knew I found my fit. The office space is quiet, peaceful and beautifully decorated. Dr. Swift and his staff are incredibly nice and take the time to listen to your concerns. He will never push a specific method or procedure if it’s not best for you. Lastly, but arguably most importantly of all, his work is technically excellent. I was both nervous and embarrassed to undergo my cosmetic procedure as it was a defect I’ve disliked since I was a teenager. With the help and encouragement of Dr. Swift, I finally underwent surgery in October 2014. The surgery room is conveniently located in his office. The assisting nurse was kind and caring. The results of my procedure are flawless. I don’t have any scars and the healing process was rapid. I also began Botox treatments shortly after my October procedure. I feared that I would look different, but I look as natural, youthful and beautiful as ever. I strongly recommend Dr. Swift. Thank you! I just had my last follow up appointment with Dr. Swift for my Breast Augmentation and I couldn’t be happier with the results! I greatly appreciate Dr. Swift’s professionalism and dedication to helping me achieve the best results. I met with him for about 4 months prior to having the surgery to address ALL my questions and concerns to ensure that when it came time for my operation I felt comfortable. His staff from the receptionist, to the operating room nurse, and anesthesiologist were very caring and helpful. One thing that stood out to me was the day after my procedure, I received a phone call from the anesthesiologist to check on how I was feeling. I highly recommend Dr. Swift to all my friends because of his superior service and compassionate team! I went to Dr. Swift for Sculptra treatments. He serves as a trainer for the company to train other physicians so I knew he had great experience. I had several vials of sculptra injected to my whole face. The procedure was relatively painless and there was very little downtime. The result was amazing. I know that placement of this product is very operator dependent and I am glad that I found Dr. Swift who I could trust, that came through, and gave me the excellent result I was seeking. I will be going back for further treatments in the future. I have been to Dr. Swift twice, following a recommendation from three friends who received surgery from him. Once for liposuction on my abdomen and again for an upper and lower blepharoplasty (aka making my eyelid larger and taking away my under-eye “puffies”). The results look amazing and natural; I could not be any happier with the results! Recovery time and pain was minimal, significantly better than I thought it would be. I was extremely nervous before my first procedure, and Dr. Swift and his team were patient and understanding. If you are interested in having plastic surgery, I strongly recommend Dr. Swift. I went to Dr. Swift to have my deviated septum and my nose reshaped. Being 29 years old not being able to breath very well and very self-conscious of my nose I needed someone who I could trust. A good friend of mine had recommended Dr. Swift, being very skeptical and nervous I made an appointment to see him. After my speaking to him for 20 minutes and him explaining the process he made feel so comfortable and and at ease. Never having had any surgery I was afraid of the end result. Now I can breathe for the first time in my life, my nose is perfect all thanks to Dr. Swift! Even after the surgery his dedication, patience, and his way making you feel at ease has really helped me. I am very happy with the results and very thankful to Dr. Swift for the amazing job, his work is amazing he really cares the results and your satisfaction. I will be going back to him again for other procedures. I would recommend to anyone who is thinking of getting something done.

How to Lose Weight for Summer: 32 Tips From Top Doctors

Everyone has some facet of his or her being that causes a bit of unhappiness. Whether it’s awkwardly long fingers, an unfortunately positioned mole, or a few extra pounds around the midsection, we all have one or two things about our own bodies that bug us or that we wish we could change. While some things are more difficult to change than others, our weight is something that can shift if we’re willing to put in the work to make it happen.

Kybella-New-York-New-JerseyWe are always in search of the latest and greatest innovations to reduce, remove, implant, or enhance our aesthetic, especially when it comes to fighting the infamous battle of the bulge. A just recently released product seems to be the “next big thing” when it comes to that. For those of us who don’t have the necessary downtime needed for surgery or just simply don’t feel comfortable with it, there is now a product called Kybella® that literally melts away the submental fat underneath the chin. So many of us complain of the turkey neck or double chin, and now with a few injections, you can rid yourself of that fat in just a few treatments.
The first FDA approved injectable substance to treat submental fat, Kybella® is designed to dissolve stubborn fat under the chin. Kybella® is deoxycholic acid, a fat-absorbing substance found in our bodies naturally. When injected, it destroys fat cells under the chin, leaving the skin substantially tighter and the jaw more contoured. For most people, it would take 2 -4 treatments of Kybella® to remove the majority of submental fullness. Could Kybella® be the next “Botox”?

Everyone knows the basics of skincare, things like wash your face in the morning and before bed and to use a moisturizer, regardless of your age. When youth is on your side, you tend to not worry so much about your skin, but as the years pass by, we start paying more attention. We start to see new and different moles, sunspots, and uneven skin tone. If you have more spots than a zebra, listen up! There are a few ways to combat this. First off, always use sunscreen, even on a cloudy day. I use Sente, which is an awesome sunscreen that doesn’t clog my pores and isn’t heavy on my skin, and it even has a light bronzer in it. Sunscreen is the single most important tip for skincare. Also, a hydroquinone cream can be useful to even out some of the dark spots. I always suggest Retinol as well, which doesn’t do much for pigment changes, but is great for fine lines that are also acquired from sun exposure.

If you finish this summer and hyperpigmentation or “spots” on your skin, come in and see us for a spot peel by Dermaceutic. This peel basically has zero down time and is super effective, which is a rare combination. Regardless of how your skin looks now or at the end of summer, remember to always wear your sunscreen!

labiaplastyLabiaplasty may be a new term and concept to those of an older generation. However, 20 and 30- somethings are very familiar with it. Labiaplasties are becoming one of the top procedures in our practice. According to the American Society for Aesthetic Plastic Surgery, the number of labiaplasty procedures increased 44% over the course of 2014. Women are now not only concerned with the size and shape of their breasts and buttocks, but now women have a growing concern over the size, shape, and color of their labia. It has been suggested that the increased awareness of that particular area of female anatomy is due to a rise in popularity of grooming (i.e. waxing, laser hair removal, etc) and the increased visibility in movies and media.

The real question that women want to know is: how important is the size, color, symmetry, and shape of our labia? A survey was recently done by MDLinx.

Out of 1,847 male respondents between the ages of 18 and 80, more respondents considered smaller labia attractive compared to large labia, while 36% remained neutral. And a surprising, 51% of participants felt the appearance of a woman’s labia actually influenced their desire to engage in sexual activity.

This leaves us women with one last question: to trim or not to trim?

There has been a huge shift in aesthetics in the past few years, and the trend keeps growing. There are no ethnic boundaries and no age or sex restrictions. It seems like everyone in the past few years is craving larger, lifted and more plump buttocks. Beginning with J Lo, and other celebrities to follow, like Kim Kardashian and Nicki Minaj, the buttocks have received outstanding amounts of attention. Plastic surgeons have seen an enormous increase from patients, wanting to enhance their buttocks. Brazilian Butt Lifts have become as “everyday” of a procedure as breast augmentations. Usually, the process entails harvesting fat from the patient’s midsection to inject into the buttocks, creating a more shapely, rounded and curvaceous look. Dr. Swift performs at least 5 Brazilian Butt Lifts a month, on patients varying in age, race and sex. American aesthetics have certainly changed from the 90’s “coked out” Kate Moss model look, to the days of “Curves” now. Like Sir Mix A Lot and Nicki Minaj’s just rereleased song: “I Like Big Butts and I Cannot Lie,” apparently the rest of America does now, as well. If you would like to find out more information about Brazilian Butt Lifts, please call our office at 212-577-9324 or visit the “Brazilian Butt Lift” section of our website www.plasticsurgeonnyc.com.

Financing is often an issue for patients. I have recently had the pleasure of dealing with some younger patients who were dealing with this issue. The procedures that they were interested in were not just to enhance their appearance, but rather to correct an aspect of their appearance to a point that they would feel “normal” by today’s standards. Having recently entered the work force, they felt a little hopeless when it came to the subject of financing surgery. However, having gone through this myself, I was able to provide various avenues for the patients to research. I had a breast augmentation just a few years out of college. I had just started my career and wanted it badly enough that I had to get a little creative with the financing part.

After doing thorough research, I opened two no-interest credit cards and financed the remainder through a personal loan from my bank. It took me years to pay off, but my self-confidence was worth every penny. I was able to suggest some different avenues to patients and they were thrilled when they came back in, fully prepared for their surgery, which would transform their self-confidence for a lifetime. I always say, if you want something badly enough, you will find a way to make it happen! And if you can’t find a way, maybe we can help!

Brotox or Beau-tox is a new term being used not only in the plastic surgery field, but among everyday men who want to look a little younger without surgery. According to a recent study in the Cosmetic Dermatology journal, the number of men getting Botox®– which relaxes facial muscles to minimize lines and wrinkles – has grown 258 percent over the past decade.

“Male patients who have had Botox® look better and have more confidence, which they believe gives them a competitive edge,” explains Dr. Swift, a board-certified plastic surgeon in New York City. Last year, more than 300,000 men got Botox®, according to figures released by the American Society of Plastic Surgeons. That is a 10 percent increase from the previous year. For years, women have overwhelmingly embraced Botox® and fillers as ways of reducing the appearance of wrinkles and aging. Now, the trend has finally caught on and seems to be growing dramatically among men.

So, what gives? Many are wondering why Brotox is on the rise. Is it due to our society being more open and accepting of cosmetic enhancements? Are men feeling more pressured to look their best? Weigh in on the topic. Share with us what you think!
