5 out of 5 stars Restylane Defyne

True Aesthetic Eye

I had some concerns under my eyes and with volume loss in my temple. In addition, I was looking for slightly fuller lips. Dr. Swift injected just the right amount in each area -- precisely, flawlessly, and quickly. Dr. Swift is an amazing injector with a true aesthetic eye. I highly recommend him to anyone!

I highly recommend Dr. Richard Swift

I thoroughly did my research before deciding to have my surgery performed by Dr. Richard Swift. Here are some of the reasons why I chose him - He has been doing this over 20 years, He really cares about the patients. During recovery he called me to see how I am doing. He even came in on his day off to meet with me post surgery. Over the top and not a clock watcher. He is an artist and...

Labiaplasty (Bilateral Labia Minora Reduction), Age 29 - New York, NY

I had an amazing experience with Dr. Swift and his team at his practice on the UES. I had been thinking about getting the surgery for about a year and had visited several doctors around NYC for consultations. After speaking with Dr. Swift, I knew that I trusted him to do a great job. I had a small procedure done to the right side of my labia minora to correct the symmetry. The whole process...

Ecstatic with my Results - New York

For many years, I have been self conscious of my labia. Growing up, a number of life experiences have solidified my anxiety over my larger-than-average nether regions. My mother had told me it was "ugly". Even after failed attempts at ignoring her, deep down I knew I felt the same. Conceptually, I do believe that every labia is unique--there is no "normal" labia--but nonetheless, I have always...

Lipo Abdomen and Flanks, NO Tummy Tuck, 1 C-section. New York, NY

A TRUE ARTIST and a gentleman. Can't thank you enough Dr Swift! 6 months post lipo ,NO TT, & thrilled with how my abdomen looks. I could not have done this no matter how much dieting & exercise I did.

Mirror, Mirror on The Wall. Whose the Best Plastic Surgeon of All? - New York, NY

I have been a patient of Dr. Richard Swift for three years now. We have been working with fillers and for the first time dermabrasion. First of all, I look and feel amazing. My result is soft and natural. I'm thrilled. But I always am. Dr. Swift is approachable, kind and smart about what he recommends. He spends time with you; that is rare in this world of in and out medicine. He goes over the...

28 Years Old, Wanted to Do This for a Long Time and It Was Totally Worth It! - New York

It has been a while now since I wanted to have this procedure done. About a year ago, I was having a drink with my male friend and he was telling me about his experiences with various girls. Out of nowhere, he tells me about a girl whose labia majora was "hanging"- not those exact words, but I knew what he meant! I came home and observed my own and felt so un-pretty down there. I immediately...

Genius with Sculptra. New York City, NY

See above. Really listens. Really cares. Truly an excellent Doctor.

5 out of 5 stars Labiaplasty

19 Years Old, Unilateral Labiaplasty, Virgin, Alone - New York, NY

Ever since I was seven, my left labia has always been a bit bigger than the right side, and to be honest, I was going to perform labiaplasty on myself because it bothered me too much. And I didn't even know that this existed until I spontaneously search for other women with the same problem. I was hesitant on paying $2K+ on this surgery because I am only 19, full-time college student, and...

51 Year Old Mother of 3, Necessary Muscle Repair, Tummy Tuck, and Lipo - New York, NY

SEE MY COMMENTS ABOVE. I love, love, love Dr. Swift. He is a true professional, and a gifted surgeon! He truly makes you feel as if you are his only patient. He takes his time to talk to you, and answers ALL of your questions! His bedside manner is on point! His follow-up care is phenomenal! He returns calls promptly, and NEVER makes you feel as if you are bothering him, or are asking a "stupid" question! My advice to anyone who is looking for a top-notch board certified surgeon, before making any final decisions, GO SEE DR. SWIFT!!
