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.

An Increase in Teenage Labiaplasty Patients

For most teenage girls being self-conscious about their acne, weight issues, and even breast size are fairly common in this day and age. So much so that many seek advisement from Board Certified Plastic Surgeons, such as Dr. Richard Swift. However, one such cosmetic issue that is on the rise especially amongst teenagers, and college-age women, is labial reconsutruction or labiaplasty. It may seem strange, but recent studies have shown that more and more teenage patients are requesting labiaplasty. As one of the foremost cosmetic surgeons for labiaplasty in NYC, has seen this rise at his practice, first-hand.

Given their age, and being in their most “formative” years, it is nothing new for teenagers to find issue with their bodies, however, as out society advances, as does the request for more modern surgical enhancements such as labiaplasty. So much so, that the American College of Obstetrics and Gynecology, has released a statement on guidelines for plastic surgeons, such as Dr. Richard Swift, on how they should be handling such patients.

For the average American teenage female, body image is an important subject. With the growing desire to fit in, and the media’s portrayal of what they deem to be the ideal female body, the pressure has never been higher. And such pressure, can lead young women to find new areas of dissatisfaction with their bodies. In recent years, the cosmetic surgery and enhancement market has begun to trend towards procedures offering things like vaginal rejuvenation, and the options for women to alter and better the appearance of the genital area have seemed to have “exploded”, with labiaplasty being one of the foremost procedures available. Also, the women’s beauty media has never had as much information on bettering the appearance of the genital area ever before. Such ideas in the media, regarding bettering the vaginal area after things like child-birth, or simply just to improve the area aesthetically have never been as prominent at any time before. And just like any other news, teenagers have access to this information far easier as a result of the internet.

Dr. Richard Swift is considered to be one of the best surgeons NYC has to offer, especially in terms of procedures like labiaplasty. However, most plastic surgeons believe procedures like labiaplasty are rarely a good idea for girls in their teenage years. The labia majora and labia minora change throughout a woman’s existence, and so soon after puberty, most teenage girls are still growing, and still developing, especially in the genital area. Variations in size, or shape, or symmetry are completely normal and most teenage girls shouldn’t be viewing these characteristics as such important issues, especially having not fully formed and developed their bodies yet. Most plastic surgeons, like Dr. Richard Swift discourage cosmetic surgery on women especially while they are still in their most formative years. Surgery during this time of body formation/transition, will cause an exponential rise in the need for repeated, corrective procedures later in life, often yielding unsatisfactory results. This is why for instance, most surgeons will require women to wait a period of 6 months to a full year, to undergo any major procedure, after any significant weight loss, or change in body composition. These same ideas apply to teenagers seeking a labiaplasty. They are still in a state of growth both physically and emotionally, and shouldn’t decide on such life altering cosmetic enhancement until they’ve reached full mental and physical maturity.

Despite Dr. Richard Swift and most other surgeons desire for teenagers to wait until they’ve reached full maturity. In certain instances, a labiaplasty may be necessary, such as if teenagers may be suffering from some type of physical deformity in the vaginal area. Of course these scenarios should still be fully thought out and discussed with their parents as well as their surgeon. If you are seeking cosmetic enhancement, including labiaplasty, contact one of NYC’s most well-regarded plastic surgeons in Dr. Richard Swift, today!
