5 out of 5 stars Eyelid Surgery

Dr. Robert Schwarcz is the Best Facial Plastic Surgeon!

I just had Orbital Decompression done by Dr. Schwarcz and I would like to post a Testimonial. I was under Dr. Schwarcz's care for over a year. I suffered from hyperthyroidism and subsequently because of the disease; one of my eyes was bulging and distorting my look. I was embarrassed and pretty much hid myself behind eye glasses even when I did not need them. After my thyroid was removed, Dr....

5 out of 5 stars Brow Lift

I Had an Endoscopic Browlift

I had an endoscopic browlift, and upper lift blepharoplasty, and lower lid blepharoplasty. Really gave me a refreshed look. I flew out from LA for the surgery. The Dr. practiced in Los Angeles and repaired my friends lower eyelids after another surgeon previously left her lower eyelids retracted. After seeing what my friend went through I did not want to take a chance so I flew out to...

5 out of 5 stars Nose Surgery

Miracle Worker - New York

I recently got into a trauma accident in Central Park.  I was riding my bicycle and was forced to stop short, catapulting off my bike seat and face-first into the back of a bus.  My face (and especially my nose, forehead, lips and teeth) took the brunt of the impact, leading to multiple facial broken bones, fractures and lacerations (a word not even in my daily parlance prior to my...

5 out of 5 stars Restylane

Restylane Under Eyes (Tear Troughs) - New York, NY

Quite painless, some bruising that was not too bad, instantly gratifying results. Dr Schwarcz tends to be conservative with treatment so as not to over do it, he told me this at the outset and told me to come back if I needed more. When the swelling went down I thought I did need a little more - went back a month later and he made it perfect. Wonderful experience, so happy I got over my fear...

Very Pleased with Work and Would Gladly Do It Again - New York, NY

I had a lower transconjunctival blepharoplasty (w/CO2 laser to tighten under eye skin), otoplasty, and neck lipo. Also fat grafting to cheeks along with adding some of the fat to compliment the repositioned orbital fat of the bleph. I had pretty sunken eyes and had just turned the aging corner on some pretty serious permanent dark circles despite how well rested I was. After the surgery I now...

5 out of 5 stars Breast Implants

Absolutely Amazing! - Dallas

Was uncomfortable for about three days, and after that I was just sore and had to restrict certain actions for another week. I also tried to not take much pain medication, but at the end I began to take it and it helped a lot, it just made me tired! But really, a small procedure, $6,000 and a week of mild discomfort was SO incredibly worth it. I look great, my clothes fit so much better,...

5 out of 5 stars Juvederm

Extremely Pleased - New York, NY

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.

5 out of 5 stars Active FX

Outstanding, Top in the Field! - New York, NY

Cut two years later, I went to a derm for a skin check and she remarked that I had many sun and age spots that currently do not appear to be a threat, but something I may want to think about caring for with a peel(s) or laser. I immediately went to Dr. Schwarcz and he agreed, but recommended we do an Active FX laser treatment. I was really nervous, but he explained in detail the procedure,...

Thrilled Looking in the Mirror - New York, NY

I felt 100 percent confident in Dr. Schwarcz as soon as I spoke with him. He described what he could do for me and did not sell me on things I did not need. People are constantly telling me how great I look and do not believe that I had surgery. My face looks and feels like it did years ago. I am thrilled when I look in the mirror. The staff is fabulous in the way they treat you, take care of...
