Dr. Schwartz is immensely proud of his attentive and knowledgeable staff. Every person in our office can give satisfying answers to questions from former, current and prospective patients. In addition to their depth of understanding, our staff has access to a proprietary database of over 500 frequently asked questions about plastic surgery and cosmetic procedures. For the convenience of our patients, we’ve made a portion of this database available here. These questions and answers will give you professional insight into the most common concerns among patients.

Note that this FAQ database is intended as a source for general information about cosmetic procedures and does not constitute medical advice. For the safest, most aesthetically pleasing results, plastic surgery treatments must be tailored specifically to the patient.
