A plastic surgery specialist is a physician with extensive training in the execution of plastic surgery procedures.
Plastic surgery is the use of surgical procedures to rebuild or reshape injured or misshapen body parts. Congenital defects, such as a cleft lip or palate, can be corrected by a plastic surgery specialist. Injuries sustained during auto accidents also may require the services of a plastic surgery specialist. These procedures fall under the category of reconstructive plastic surgery.
The other category of plastic surgery is cosmetic plastic surgery. Plastic surgery specialists often perform procedures like breast augmentation, face lifts, tummy tucks, liposuction, and lip injection as elective surgeries for patients who wish to make aesthetic improvements.

I have been a patient of Dr. 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 options; and will get on the phone if you need him. Stephanie his assistant is warm, smart and helpful: from money to after care she always offers help and support. If you want to postpone surgery --- and try fillers and dermabrasion --- look no further. In fact he was just featured in a New York Times article on the miracle of fillers. His prices are in line with other board certified plastic surgeons -- and his private quiet office with patients nicely spaced out allows the feeling of not being in a factory. No one feels rushed or like they are a number. There are so few "private" practices left. This is one where you feel like you are cared about as a unique individual. I trust this man and his assistant. This year we will do my eyes. I could not be in better hands. Thank you Dr. Swift and Stephanie; for supporting me to feel my best self a beautiful while offering me a warm, friendly, caring and comfortable experience. I can't stop looking in the mirror!
Dr. Swift took time to explain various options, without pressuring me, and spent time with me before, during and after the procedure. He is highly skilled and is able to perform without inflicting unnecessary pain since he was willing to wait 20 minutes while the topical anesthetic took effect. He has impeccable bedside manners. I will definitely go back to him for future procedures.
