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.

What to Expect During Rhinoplasty Aftercare

Over the past 3 decades, the rhinoplasty has cemented itself as one of the most popular and widely requested aesthetic enhancement procedures around. Allowing men and women the opportunity to completely transform their facial aesthetic and create radically different facial contours – all from one procedure. As the top nose surgeon NYC has in practice, Dr. Richard Swift has performed countless rhinoplasty procedures throughout his time. Through his years of experience, Dr. Swift has been able to use the rhinoplasty to achieve some of the most radical facial transformations, providing results not a single plastic surgeon in New York can match. And while his skill, and knowledge have been able to make a huge difference, one of the most important aspects to any successful rhinoplasty lies in creating a smart and strategic aftercare program – allowing patients to maximize their healing and recover at an optimal rate. Depending upon the nose surgeon NYC patients can expect a relatively similar course of aftercare treatment, but over the years, Dr. Swift has heavily scrutinized the conventional recovery process and formulated his own specific set of guidelines for each and every patient and their individual needs! One thing many cosmetic surgeons fail to take into account is that every patient is different, and this makes every rhinoplasty procedure different as well. And certain factors, completely separate from the skill of the surgeon, will dictate how well your procedure goes. Some of these determining factors include:

· Body Chemistry & Overall Health
· Genetics
· Laxity of Skin
· Strength of Cartilage
· Underlying Shape & Structure of the Nose
· Age
· Patience & Willingness to Follow Guidelines

More so than any plastic surgeon in New York, Dr. Richard Swift provides a highly dedicated, hands-on approach to aftercare – a major reason why he is considered to the be top nose surgeon NYC has to offer. But before we get into the specifics of rhinoplasty aftercare, lets discuss what one can expect post-procedure. Patients must remember, that the rhinoplasty is quite a difficult procedure. While it might seem small, relative to other procedures, the procedure is performed on one of the most sensitive areas of the body, with not much extra tissue to go around – leaving an even smaller margin of error, no matter which plastic surgeon in New York performs the procedure. When the rhinoplasty is completed, patients can expect symptoms such as moderate pain and discomfort, bruising and swelling, excessive, often bloody, nasal discharge, numbness in the nose and upper mouth, excess mucus, loss of smelling and tasting, and one of the most annoying issues being severe nasal stuffiness. To combat these issues and allow the nose to heal with the proper shape & structure, your surgeon will use specially devised nasal packing, and strategically-placed splints. As the top nose surgeon NYC patients have come to trust, here are a few of Dr. Swift’s helpful tips for dealing with rhinoplasty aftercare.

· Blood Loss

Some patients will bleed a lot following their rhinoplasty procedure – causing bouts of severe nausea and dizziness. In order to combat this, Dr. Swift may recommend you take an antiemetic – a drug to deal with nausea and motion sickness. Also create a bit of a gauze reservoir to catch the blood that drips out of the nose. The bleeding will generally taper off within 24-72 hours following surgery, if it doesn’t, contact your doctor.

· Swelling

Swelling is a huge issue following a rhinoplasty, and depending on the person and the type of procedure they have – the swelling will gradually go down within 4-6 weeks of surgery. If correction is concentrated on the tip of the nose, then that area can remain swollen for several months, in many cases, lasting over a year! In order to reduce swelling, Dr. Swift will recommend a steroid taken immediately after surgery, as well as other anti-inflammatory supplements and medications. It is important to avoid too much head movement during this time, and keep your head as elevated as possible.

· Blowing Your Nose

Probably the most common question after a rhinoplasty, but it is important that patients avoid blowing their nose for at least the first 4 weeks after surgery. Depending upon your specific procedure, it may be okay to clean your nose out using a Q-tip and alcohol-based cleaning solutions.

In addition, Dr. Swift recommends avoiding eating large, or spicy foods that will cause you to open your mouth wide and put pressure on your nasal passages. Also you will be provided with a specially fitted splint to wear for the first week or two following surgery – in order to help maintain the new nasal structure.
