I had a rhinoplasty done by dr. Swift a few years ago and I love my nose. It's so natural that no one even noticed that I had a nose job. I just kept getting compliments on how great and rested I looked after I had the surgery, but people could not tell the reason why. Very nice dr.

Rhinoplasty 14December15 Please do not have this type of surgery with Dr. Swift. After 14 long months with all the research I have done and what I have gone through please go see a Rhinoplasty ENT doctor as they understand the function of the nose. What to expect after a Rhinoplasty? • 3 weeks of rest (Luisa his assistant will say, you can work within 2 to 3 days, this is absolutely a selling scam.) Reasons: • Cast on your nose for 1 week. • bruising and swelling up to 2 weeks • After removal of the cast severe acne on your nose as your pores are clogged and will form whiteheads with puss and very bloody • Lack of sleep up to 3 weeks The first week, every time you fall asleep immediately your throat will feel like a knife went through your throat because you are not able to close your mouth due to the swelling in the nose and the only way to breathe is out of your mouth. Having your mouth open will cause severe dryness. Perhaps 1 hour of sleep a night. It took about 3 to 4 weeks to have a good night’s sleep. Do you wear eyeglasses? If you wear eyeglasses you will not be able to wear them up to 6 weeks or more even though I was told 3 weeks which was another scam to sell. The reason why is because it takes up 6 weeks for the nose bridge bone to be heal. As well, no sports that may have face contact for up to 3 months. It took almost one year to not feel heaviness on my nose bridge. Until today sunglasses prescription are too heavy. I highly suggest you get a nose guard if you have issues wearing contact lenses. What I didn’t appreciate from Dr. Swift is early on something was not right I was extremely congested. He kept on giving me different sprays to a point I felt so dizzy and once again Luisa says it’s not the spray. There was cortisone and once I stopped using it a few days later it stopped. After 6 months he suggested I go see an ENT (ear, nose, throat specialist). 1st ENT denied servicing me further due to Nasal Valve Collapse 2nd ENT advised I do have Nasal Valve Collapse, enlarged Turbinate’s and scar bands. 3rd ENT advised all what Doctor number 2 said Please do not get a Rhinoplasty from Dr. Swift. After 3 doctors confirmed I have a NVC Dr Swift is still denying it and mentions that he spoke to Dr. Number 3 and said what I have is not complicated. I am up to Doctor #4 ENT who specializes in Nasal Valve Collapse. He confirmed as well I have a NVC. Basically, Turbinate’s are like Tonsils in your nose and the scars are from the surgery. Lucky after I had the turbinate’s reduced and the scar bands removed I was able to breathe better. For 11 months I was not able to do Yoga or sleep on a flat pillow and to a point I couldn’t kiss my boyfriend. After this procedure, I was able to breathe better. Unfortunately, the congestion persists due to the airway passage which is called Nasal Valve Collaspe. NVC- is very complicated surgery and only a few doctors specialize in this surgery, due to this failure of Dr. Swift making my passage too small and the valve collapse I have this horrible congestion. Doctor #4 wants to avoid fixing it as most times it is not a success surgery because basically you are correcting the mistake of another doctor and fixing it is the hardest because if they have to fix the mechanical part which may fail the esthetic might not be a great outcome. At this moment, he wants me to rinse 2 times a day, use cortisone at night for five months. He hopes that it will get better. If you have any questions please call me 514 497-1880. Please do you research well! My intuition told me to bail out as I decided to read his reviews 2 weeks prior my surgery and there is not one great review. Luisa convinced me otherwise, her job is too sell. Take this as a sign. I will give credit were it deserves he did want to see me on regular basis, I stopped as I didn't appreciate when he denied once again about the NVC after 3 doctors confirmed it. At this point, I took things in my own hands as I am the one who is suffering and has been compromised with my breathing. The outcome of my nose, not sure as the collapse as made it I am not sure what , but not perfect.

Dr. Swift is an excellent, caring doctor. His approach is to bring out the best "you", and less is more. He has worked with me on helping heavy acne scarring, and i wouldn't trust anyone else.

Dr. Swift is absolutely amazing. I had a breast reduction with him and I could not be happier with the results. He makes you feel confident that he will make sure you are happy with your results and ensures you are comfortable every step of the way. His staff are wonderful and he is always on time, if not early! Doing my surgery with him was the best thing i could have done. Couldn't recommend him enough.

Many years ago I had a breast augemtation with Dr. Swift. And a couple of weeks ago I had a neck lift surgery with Dr. Swift. In between these surgeries I have gone to Dr. Swift for fillers. I can't imagine a better cosmetic surgeon. He is amazing and his staff is top notch.

I had a breast augmentation with doctor Swift and was really nervous about it. The whole staff made me super comfortable by giving me all the information I could need about it, I wasn't left in the dark. The after operation check ups are also really well done, they are always punctual. Wouldn't take another doctor for plastic surgery !!

I had eyelid surgery which I am quite please with although the lines underneath my eyes still remain and that was one of the main reasons having gone through and spending that much money. Although I was told before and after pictures were to be taken, never happened......he is a great Doctor and I am now at a loss as to if I should go back and how much more money will be required to get rid of those lines??? I already went through the lazer and it did nada..........
