5 out of 5 stars Eyelid Surgery

The BEST experience and results!

I started searching approx 5 years ago to find "the" doctor for me for upper & lower eyelids and chin implant surgeries! Through the years, I saved various doctors' websites and reviews, but never acted on them. Then this past March, I noticed (for the first time) Dr. Schwartz; I was immediately drawn to him and called to schedule a consultation. It was fate I was able to see him within...

Dr. Richard Schwartz is The Best

I am very pleased with the results. The care that I have received after the surgery exceeded my expectations. Dr. Schwartz is very professional, kind and caring. His staff is friendly and courteous. I would highly recommend Dr. Schwartz to my friends if they consider plastic surgery.

5 out of 5 stars Tummy Tuck

Great experience and outcome.

Dr Schwartz is wonderful. He takes his time to understand what you want and to carefully explain what he can accomplish, and is clearly both a gifted surgeon and artist. A tummy tuck is not an easy procedure to go through, but I think he made it as easy as it could be. I really appreciated the personal phone calls from him in the days after my procedure. I'm very happy with my results and am...

5 out of 5 stars Mohs Surgery

MOHS Reconstruction - West Palm Beach, FL

I have had four MOHS surgeries on my face in the past six years (two on my nose, two on my upper lip). This all started in my early 30's, and I wanted to go to the best doctor for the reconstruction. I can not begin to explain how good my face looks. You can not see any of the scars. My most dramatic reconstruction was on my upper lip. I was in the middle of the school year (teaching...

5 out of 5 stars Breast Augmentation

Wonderful, professional experience!

Dr.Schwartz was very professional and reassuring throughout the entire process of consulting, choosing breast size, surgery, and post surgery. His nurse and staff were extremely helpful and caring. I have amazing results!

5 out of 5 stars Breast Reconstruction

Post Radiation Scarring - West Palm Beach, FL

Dr. Schwartz devised a two step procedure for the removal of the scar tissue and the cosmetic reconstruction of the breast. Step one has been completed (surgical removal of scar tissue and temporary implant). Step two will occur in some weeks (permanent implant) . I think this was the best possible solution for my situation and am very grateful to have become pain free and looking good again.

5 out of 5 stars Breast Implant Revision

Best Surgeon - West Palm Beach, FL

Hands down, the best surgeon!! Was recommended by a friend. At my consultation, showed him pictures of exactly what I wanted my new breasts to look and feel like---I am 7 weeks postop, and they look and feel amazing. Already back to my life of working out. His staff (especially Kathy) are very personable and helpful with any questions I have had. Would go back for any cosmetic surgery...

5 out of 5 stars Abdominal Etching

49 Year Old, Mother of Two, Abdominal Plasty - West Palm Beach, FL
