"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." "So it goes without saying my eyes look amazing."

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....

Absolutely the Best -- Should Have Gone to Him Years Ago! - New York, NY

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.

Miracle Worker - New York

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.

5 out of 5 stars Restylane

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

Dr Schwarcz possesses impressive technical skill, experience, knowledge, perfectionist tendencies and a refined aesthetic sense - important qualities your doctor should have. But just as importantly, he is approachable, warm, a good listener, genuine, and obviously wants his patients to be completely happy with their results. This combination of accomplishment and caring is quite rare. I chose to see an oculoplastic surgeon for the specialized and delicate tear trough area, and after extensive research went with Dr Schwartcz. Boy am I glad I chose him.

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

Overall very pleased with the results and would recommend Dr Schwarcz. I found him doing internet research and was impressed with the subtle results looking at before/after photos of other patients in his office during the initial consult. Good bedside manner and answered all my questions. Not that it should matter but very pleasant staff as well.

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,...

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.

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

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.

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...
