Dr. Mark Schwartz is the BEST!

I was sent to the best plastic surgeon in my area...Dr. Mark Schwartz. After decades of suffering back, neck and shoulder pain, I sought help from Dr. Schwartz for a breast reduction.

Thank you,...

5 out of 5 stars Tummy Tuck

Belt Lipectomy After Weight Loss - New York, NY

I lost 160 pounds after Bariatric Surgery and had a ton of extra skin on my stomach, lower back, hips, legs, etc. The Belt Lipectomy is basically an extended tummy tuck, so it goes all the way around the body, not just from hip to hip in the front. The surgery changed my life. I lost 10 pounds of skin and it has been extremely positive for me. I can fit into much smaller clothing without the...

Best Plastic Surgeon Hands Down. New York, NY

I am a registered nurse and I've worked with many plastic surgeons and have witnessed countless patient results. I will always recommend Dr. Schwartz. I've used Dr. Schwartz for several of my own procedures. His superb bedside manner and exceptional skill are unmatched. I was amazed at my results. I've had lipo of the arms, back, hips, tummy, and waist. I had lost a significant amount of...

5 out of 5 stars Halo Laser

Very Happy! - New York

After a long summer enjoying time outdoors, I felt great. Unfortunately my face was not as rejuvenated as the rest of me. When the autumn rolled in and my tan faded away, I was distressed by all the new fine lines and pigmented spots decolorating my whole face. The daily sunscreen and occasional sun hats did little to protect my skin. I live in NYC and saw Dr. Mark Schwartz who recommended...

5 out of 5 stars Juvederm

48 Years Old, 1 Syringe of Juvederm Ultra for Nasal Labial Folds, Lasted 18 Months - Plantation, FL

I've had Juvederm done twice to my nasal labial folds. The first time I got the regular Juvederm. I loved it but it only lasted about 6 months. I do have to say, though, that the doctor recommended another 1/2 syringe at this time, but since it was my first time, I was hesitant. Still, it was worth it. This last time (in Oct. 2014), I got Juvederm Ultra. Again, I loved it. The best part,...

Lower Body Lift After Gastric Bypass - New York, NY

I lost 130 lbs after a roux n y gastric bypass done 3 years ago. For the first time in my life I finally was at a weight that was healthy for me. But no matter what I did I could never ever get my body to look "normal" with all the extra skin hanging over my belly. Every time I looked in the mirror I felt that I had to get rid of the extra skin to finish my this process so I just needed to...

A Smile...the Best Beauty Remedy - New York

Dr. Schwartz is a warm, compassionate, caring, talented Doctor.. a true artist, that should be the end of my review but quite the contrary. I came to his office after a 250lb weight loss, looking like a badly deflated Macy's float. He answered my questions, calmed my fears and generally made me feel cared for. I am one of those annoying people who always seem to have a camera in my hand and...

5 out of 5 stars Breast Reduction

43-year-old Mom with Two Kids Needing a Tune-up! - New York, NY

I was becoming increasingly self conscious about the size of my breasts, (34 F) and after breast feeding two kids my breasts sagged, and one breast was significantly larger than the other. I could not find proper fitting clothes because my chest was so much larger than the rest of my body. Also, as a runner it was uncomfortable for my neck and shoulders to carry so much extra bulk. It...
