5 out of 5 stars Tummy Tuck

The right doctor, the right team and the perfect time to take the step in improving my life.

I consider myself lucky and incredibly fortunate to find Dr. Swift. I'm 6 weeks out from my abdominoplasty/liposuction and honestly, I felt pretty great within the first week. All patients heal differently but what helped greatly was putting my worries at ease, setting clear expectations on how I should feel during recovery and delivering on making me feel amazing. He is a true artist and...

Dr Swift is THE BEST! - New York, NY

Dr Swift is THE BEST! He always takes time to sit with you at every appointment and talk through what you want to do and provides his recommendation without ever trying to upsell you. I've consistently had Botox and filler done with Dr. Swift, and have loved the natural (yet immediate 5 years younger) look so much - my friends have noticed too, and started going to see him as well!

Amazing Work!

I feel & look amazing. I did extensive research on doctors and had numerous consultations. As soon as I met with Dr. Swift I knew he was the one, he was honest, responsive & professional. So happy

Best results form Dr. Swift over everyone else I used before

I have been to many Plastic surgeons for botox in NYC in the past 15 years. My results after using Dr. Swift was far better than any other doctor. Aside from results, he was patient, took his time and asked me good questions regarding my expectations. It was a wonderful experience and I will happily return again and again!

Labiaplasty 23 years old 1 child

Offically I am 8 weeks and 3 days post op. After going to my consultation November 2016 and meeting with Stephanie and Dr.Swift who made me feel so comfortable, I was SOLD! I took the next few months to save , I then paid for my surgery and got $500 off which is a special Dr.Swift had. On March 28,2017 I got my surgery under local anesthesia which took about 1 hour and 30 minutes. Im not going...

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!

5 out of 5 stars Liposuction

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...

5 out of 5 stars Liposuction

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.
