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.

Top Rhinoplasty Specialist NYC

A Step by Step Guide Before Your Rhinoplasty

With interest in plastic surgery, seemingly at an all-time high, we are seeing women from every walk of life, rich or poor, black or white, executive or housewife – all considering having something done! For many of these women, had you asked them 10-15 years prior they would have scoffed at the idea. However, today things are quite different, according to Dr. Richard Swift, the top plastic surgeon Midtown Manhattan has practicing, all this conversation about procedures, whether they be for the face or body, not only drums up business for surgeons, but it also educates women based on certain factors of surgery. The fact is patients, while they certainly respect the opinion of someone like Dr. Swift, being a top rhinoplasty specialist NYC patients simply seem to take first-hand procedure knowledge a long way. While it might seem strange, Dr. Swift can remember many a consultation in which patients simply didn’t want to take no for an answer, in fact even after saying she would have to lose 15 pounds for a certain procedure in order for it to not only be more effective and aesthetically pleasing but so that she there are no adverse health issues for the patient, as can often be the case if patients do not follow directions and follow general protocols. For the most part this warning is mostly for those who are looking to push a body contouring procedure like liposuction too far, to a point that isn’t comfortable for the surgeon themselves – which should mean something because they can earn thousands of dollars by simply doing the procedure, but would rather put the health and wellness of the patient first. When it comes to a procedure like the rhinoplasty however, while there is far less risk to the nose itself. Despite that fact, more surgeons than ever before are agreeing to perform nose jobs, and while the vast majority are fine, often Dr. Swift, as the top plastic surgeon Midtown Manhattan has to offer, would rather a patient pass on such a procedure, or possibly even try and see what the results of a non-surgical nose job which uses fillers instead. Regardless of what the situation is, Dr. Swift will judge your candidacy during your initial consult, in this article we will explain a nose job consult, as well as the other parts of the process and the thinking that goes with each decision a top notch surgeon will make.

· What is a Rhinoplasty?

Otherwise known as a nose job, a rhinoplasty procedure is a facial surgery procedure designed to help patients correct and enhance the size, shape, and positioning of the nose. When it comes to the nose job, there are two main reasonings for this procedure to happen – either for cosmetic purposes to enhance a patient’s appearance and the size or shape of her nose, and the second it for reconstructive purposes, essentially to restore the form and function of a nose, that may not be performing properly, as a result of some type of trauma.

· The Initial Consultation

Like with any other plastic surgery procedure, Dr. Swift, the top rhinoplasty specialist NYC has to offer, will begin the consult by getting to know the patient, as well as their health history and whatnot. Then they will go over the reason for the rhinoplasty and what the patients hopes to achieve as a result, and what she is aware cannot be done through a rhinoplasty. Then they will go through some paperwork and financial details, then it is likely time for a physical examination – in addition, Dr. Swift will also show the patient pictures of other patients before and after images. Once the examination is completed, Dr. Swift will show the patient what he recommends for surgery, from different things like tightening up the nostrils, to reducing the bump on the arch, and even slimming the overall width of the nose down a bit. Once the two parties can come to an understanding together, surgery is ready to be scheduled!

· Are You the Ideal Candidate?

Generally, as the top plastic surgeon Midtown Manhattan has to offer, Dr. Swift will thoroughly explain each and every possible issue that may be corrected as a result of a nose job. In addition, it is important that the patient understands that because the nose is positioned in the direct middle of the face, it can have a drastic affect on the appearance of the other facial features as well, therefore they must understand that as well, and make concessions. The best candidates are those that have any number of the following issues with their nose.

o Dorsal hump: A bump at the bridge of the nose

o Nasal width: A nose that is too wide or too narrow

o Asymmetry: A nose that is twisted or deviated

o Prominent nasal tip: A nasal tip that is round, bulbous, fatty, or disproportionate to the rest of the face

o Drooping nasal tip: The angle between the upper lip and lower nose that is less than 90 degrees

o Post-traumatic deformities: Shape aberrations after nasal injury

o Nasal airway problems: Internal valve collapse and septal deviation

· Prep and the Procedure

The most important thing when you are at this stage in the game, is to simply listen to your surgeon and his or her staff members, as that is the best way to ensure a smooth surgery, and recovery with results that not only match your exact desires, but look even better than they thought without looking overly enhanced and still maintaining that natural appearance. Avoid things like caffeine, soda, alcohol, and all smoking one month before the procedure, it helps aid in the recovery. When it comes to the procedure, there is the open or closed variety. Both approaches involve incisions being made within the internal nostril region, but the open rhinoplasty approach adds an external incision (a few millimeters) on the undersurface of the columella (i.e. the tissue that divides the nostrils). That external cut leaves a permanent scar, albeit not super visible. The skin of the nose is then “undraped” (similar to opening the hood of the car) so that the inner structures of the nose become visible. This allows you to do massive changes to the nose and take things apart more readily and reconstruct the nose. This is necessary for botched or revision [previously operated on] noses, or noses with very difficult anatomy. As the top rhinoplasty specialist NYC has to offer, its important to prepare for the aftercare part, take off work for a week or so, plan out pain meds, and other aspects of aftercare – which, relative to other procedures, is fairly simple for a rhinoplasty.
