Richard Swift MD, New York's Premier Plastic Surgeon. Brazilian Butt Lift, Liposuction, Tummy Tuck. Breast Implants, Labiaplasty and Fat Transfer. I had several consultations with other surgeons before I selected Dr. Swift and I am very happy I decided to go with him. He is absolutely amazing. I’m extremely pleased with the outcome of my breast lift with augmentation. My new breasts look very natural and there is very minimal scarring. I do not have a single complaint about the care I received. I never felt rushed during my visits with him. He was always available to answer all of my questions before and after the surgery. I couldn’t be more satisfied with the care I received. He’s not only talented, but he’s also really nice and easy to talk to. Stephanie, the office assistant was also extremely helpful in answering some of my questions. It’s always a joy to talk to Dr. Swift and Stephanie during my follow up visits. I highly recommend Dr. Swift for anyone considering plastic surgery. He is so amazing with my injectables. I love how it erases years off of my face. Dr. Swift is amazing. I have been a client since 2007. He listens to my ideas and gives me honest feedback on what he can do to make me look young. I love his office staff person who is very friendly and always makes me feel comfortable. Dr Swift is amazing! He is the ultimate professional and so good at what he does – every time I leave his offices, I get so many compliments but never a ‘what did you have done’ question because everything is so subtle and natural. Can’t say enough great things about their office! Dr. Swift is wonderful. Has the best bedside manner a doc can have. He is not pushy and has a keen aesthetic eye. I adore him! Thanks doc for making me beautifuller! I have been to several doctors but when it comes to injectables Dr. Swift is the best. He is a true artist and I would never go to anyone else.

Thanks doc for making me beautifuller! 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.

Rhinoplasty Specialist NYC

Step by Step Guide to Your Rhinoplasty Procedure

When it comes to your appearance, the face is one of the most crucial components to what makes you, you. Even the smallest of alterations can lead to a vastly different look – leading to an aesthetic far different from the one you have had your entire life. When people see us from the outside, our facial features are the most definable characteristics we have and acting as the centerpiece of our face, the nose is the most identifiable of these characteristics. For many of us, the nose can be a point of contention; having a nose that is too big or asymmetrical, can drown out or overpower our other features – even causing distortion with the shape and placement of our eyes, ears, mouth, and chin. The look of our nose is mainly a genetic factor, and things like ethnicity play a key role, as individuals from certain backgrounds are more likely to have larger noses or wider nostrils, and in many cases a nasal bridge with noticeable bumps or depressions. This is the main reason why the rhinoplasty or nose job, has become the most popular form of facial plastic surgery around today. As the top rhinoplasty specialist, NYC has to offer, Dr. Richard Swift has performed countless nose jobs throughout the years, for patients who have given a variety of reasons for wanting to go ‘under the knife’. From cosmetic reasons, like the size, shape, and symmetry, to functional reasons like difficulty breathing, blockages, and even as a result of an accident, injury, or trauma – the rhinoplasty has helped countless patients improve their nose, as well as their overall aesthetic. Despite the popularity of the procedure, few of us truly know what goes into a rhinoplasty. Being the foremost rhinoplasty specialist NYC has in practice, Dr. Swift focuses on a few specific alterations that go into the procedure. A nose job can change the overall size of the nose, the width of the nose bridge, the size, and positioning of the nostrils, as well as the look of the profile – altering any humps or depressions along the bridge. Considered to be the top rhinoplasty specialist NYC has in practice, Dr. Swift provides us with a basic outline of the rhinoplasty procedure.


The first and some would argue the most important step to the rhinoplasty, and most other surgical enhancement procedures is the consultation. During your consultation, Dr. Swift will examine your nose thoroughly, inside and out, in order to properly gauge your candidacy for such a procedure. This includes taking pictures at various angles and showing you examples of what you would like to achieve from your specific procedure. In addition, he will go through the current issues you are having with your nose, whether they be aesthetic issues involving the appearance or structural issues that are impeding proper breathing or function. He will work with you to properly plan your procedure, depending on your specific wants and needs. This can include things like slimming the nasal bridge, narrowing or widening the nostrils, removing any bumps or depressions in the bridge, making it more symmetrical, altering the position, and reducing its overall size. You will also go through any pre-procedural notes or tips.

The Rhinoplasty Procedure

For the most part, the rhinoplasty is an outpatient procedure, taking place in either a hospital or surgical room. Depending on your specific procedure, the length of the procedure can vary greatly, from as quick as an hour, to over 4 hours. This also depends on whether you are getting a nose job for the first time, or if this is a revision procedure done to correct a previously “botched” nose job. Dr. Swift, being the top rhinoplasty specialist NYC has to offer, gets a number of requests to perform revision rhinoplasty, correcting the work for an unhappy patient. While there are a number of intricacies that go into the procedure, it can be broken down into 4 general steps.

Anesthesia: Depending on your specific procedure, and your needs, the procedure is performed using local anesthesia or general anesthesia. Most often, a revision rhinoplasty requires general anesthesia, as it might be far more invasive. Once the anesthesia is administered you are ready to begin the procedure.

Initial Incision: Being the top rhinoplasty specialist NYC has in practice, Dr. Swift can utilize a few different types of incisions – for either an open or closed rhinoplasty. Closes is where the incision is hidden inside the nose, and open is where the incision is made along the tissue separating the bridge and nostrils. Once the incision is made, Dr. Swift will remove the soft tissue covering the nose so as to access the main structure of the nose.

Reshaping & Restructuring: Depending on your specific wants and needs, we can reduce and reshape the structure of the nose by removing cartilage or even grafting cartilage from another area of the body – done in order to change the size of the nose. Having access to the main area of the nose, Dr. Swift can also straighten the nose and fix any deviations in the septum or bridge. He can also shave the bone down to remove a bump along the bridge and adjust it to create a more symmetrical shape. In order to slim down the nose and nostrils, he will also cut away any excess, unwanted soft tissue. For those who have blockages or breathing problems, we will also clear any other tissue that impedes airflow. Because we have full access to the nose through the incision, we can sculpt and shape the nose in the way you desire.

Closing Up the Nose: Once he has removed the excess tissue, fixed the alignment, adjusted the width, and sculpted the nose the way it was previously outlined during your consultation, Dr. Swift will then pull the soft tissue back over the nasal opening to fit the new shape and size. Then the incisions are stitched closed, and a splint or some type of cast will be used to hold the nose in place.

While this is an abbreviated version of the rhinoplasty, it properly outlines exactly what the procedure entails. Depending on the specifics of your procedure, you can expect a recovery period of weeks to a few months – with a number of important aftercare steps. During this period, it is important to rest and follow the steps of your surgeon. For more information about your nose job or to schedule a consultation with Dr. Swift, contact us today.
