I have no hesitation whatsoever in recommending Dr. Schwarcz's services. Not only is he attentive to detail and an absolute perfectionist, he is on top of it all a fundamentally nice and decent guy. We discussed the procedure beforehand, and I had made it clear that I wanted to retain my existing 'look'. In the days leading up to the procedure, I was worried that I might perhaps not be doing the right thing - I had seen otoplasties that went to an extreme ('alien' like, pinned all the way back, etc.), and was concerned that I would have my appearance changed so dramatically and unnaturally that I would be subject to teasing from my relatives and work colleagues for being overly vain. He accomplished the look so well and in doing so has improved my self confidence so greatly that I wish I'd discovered him 10 years ago. To top it off, even my parents, relatives and close friends couldn't tell that I had a procedure done, only that I looked "much better" and "healthier". I also have nothing but great things to say about the follow up process - I recall when I had some questions over the recovery phase in the days following surgery, Dr. Schwarcz was prompt, attentive and always available, even over the Thanksgiving holiday period, which I found truly remarkable. Needless to say, Dr. Schwarcz has helped change my outlook on the world and I am absolutely certain I will turn to him for any future needs in this area.

Words cannot describe how grateful I am to have been underneath Dr. Schwarcz’s surgical hands. Dr. Schwarcz did a fantastic job in what was an intense, highly pressured trauma situation. While many doctors said that the risks of long-term facial deformity were high, I could barely now even notice that I had an accident. In addition to his amazing, raw surgical talents, he is a well-rounded, personable, and caring doctor. He had an uncanny ability to diagnose and communicate complicated issues in a factual but yet user-friendly manner. He had a perfectionist like attention to detail that manifested itself in his work. He had a commitment to providing me a holistic approach to medical care rarely found in surgeons. He made sure that I was never in a higher level of discomfort that was necessary; followed up with me to make sure I was attending to my wounds appropriately; coordinated with other specialists and nurses to make sure I was receiving the proper level of care; and made himself available to me 24 / 7. The helmet saved my brain while Dr. Schwarcz saved my face. Needless to say, I give him my highest recommendation.

Made me feel I was to blame for poor outcome,also told me that the "OPTIONS", weren't meant to be 1or the other that they were meant to intertwine.I showed my friend email ,she was at the consultation with me,and every time I saw dr.S She was so angry she emailed dr.S and asked if that was the case why do 2nd,3rd surgery.His response alot of back tracking,needless to say,he told her he would still like to help me,if I was willing.I emailed him 3xs with no response,tossed out like trash which out of everything saddens me the most.I paid $20,000 my savings.I will say he did scar revision on sides of my temple which he did a good job.Updated on 25 Nov 2012:I feel false advertising. Not many doctors to choose in philadelphia for my situation,and he advertised on his web site he did this kind of revision. Choose him online after reading his website

I had filler for undereye bag correction (tear troughs) months before my wedding and wouldnt trust anyone else to do this again. Highly skilled and I will probably have Dr. S perfrom my eventual bleph some day in the future. He is very down to earth and likeable. It can be so daunting trying to find the right doctor but look no further... highly recommend.

The minute I met Dr. Schwarcz, I felt a sense of trust with his very warm and professional manner. He is genuine, incredibly passionate, honest and his attention to detail is more an art form than medicine. He takes a lot of time with his patients and I have never felt rushed or unimportant, something that is rare (especially in NYC where doctors are everywhere and touting how good they are). I was introduced to Dr. Schwarcz through a mutual friend who is a patient and, at the time, an on-air beauty expert for a national morning show. I went for a consultation because most of my adult life my upper and lower lids have bothered me, sagging skin that needed to be lifted/removed. In hindsight, I could not have been more fortunate for the introduction and could not have chosen a better surgeon. His work is flawless and to this day, people still say to me that something is really different about me and I look so refreshed, but not one person could put his/her finger on what I had done. He stands by his philosophy: IF people can tell work has been done, he is not doing his job. So it goes without saying my eyes look amazing. Through the entire recovery, Dr. Schwarcz returned every phone call personally and explained what was happening and what to expect. He was spot on as to the amount of days recovery would take and when I would likely feel comfortable going out in public. He is NOT a salesman and he is very classy.
