"I had the best experience working with Dr. Schwartz and his beautiful staff! I went in for my second breast augmentation to have my saline implants of 13 years removed and replaced with silicone. Upon meeting Dr. Schwartz, I knew immediately my search was over. He walked me through everything in detail, Listened to every question I had and truly wanted me to have the best experience and what I wanted within reason. From the moment I set foot in his surgery center the day of my surgery, I was greeted with smiles and I felt so comfortable, the nurses, Dr. Chang his anesthesiologist, PCD Laura, all of them, I knew I was in good hands! They look amazing now and I love them! Thank you Dr. Schwartz!"- Anonymous / RealSelf / Jul 03, 2019
"I've always had an AMAZING experience at Robert Schwartz Plastic Surgery and I would HIGHLY recommend them to anyone and everyone!Let's start with Cristy which is who introduced me to Robert Schwartz Plastic Surgery. Cristy is a genius and just like Dr. Schwartz her meticulous attention to detail is exactly what you want, in your licensed medical professional. When I first started to see Cristy I immediately saw a difference in how I was treated as a patient. Instead of being rushed in and out like I had been at previous places, Cristy took her time to understand both my concerns, and what look I was going for. I've been seeing Cristy for over two years and each time I go she always ensures I'm happy with the results. Aside from filler Cristy has also taken care of my botox needs. I've had botox injected into my masseter to help my TMJ, my forehead, and I've had a brow lift! I've always had an amazing experience with Cristy and I'm just so impressed with how talented she is! Now let me tell you about my experience with Dr. Robert Schwartz. Back in November 2019 I had a consultation with Dr. Schwartz and the second I left his office I knew I would pick him to perform my surgery. My consultation lasted over two hours, he went into detail about every step of the procedure, answered every single question I had, and made sure I fully knew what to expect before, during and after surgery. This really stood out to me since other consultations at best lasted 20 minutes. Not only was he wonderful and personable but Laura and Anna were both extremely sweet and helpful throughout the entire process! On January 17th I had my surgery I could not be happier with my results so far!!"- S.C. / Google / Feb 19, 2020
"Dr. Schwartz and his staff top notch! I've been a client of his since 2008. Trust him 100%. He listens and hears you!"- B.C. / Google / Feb 18, 2020
"I considered a few different surgeons for my breast augmentation, but Dr. Schwartz was amazing! He explained everything, and his staff made me feel comfortable and kept me well-informed of the entire procedure. My surgery was comfortable and recovery was relatively easy, and I LOVE the results! I'm now about 6 months post-op, and my new breasts look and feel like ME. They don't look or feel "fake" - half the time I forget that I even have them! It's like he made me look like I should have looked all along. He was able to translate what I wanted to look like into what I actually look like now. I love it!"- H.A. / Google / Feb 18, 2020
"I have trusted Dr. Schwartz to care for me twice, after considering the procedure for several years before deciding to proceed. After my first surgery, I was feeling disappointed with my outcome, and it took some time for me to come to terms with this, and share my feelings and concerns with Dr. Schwartz. After having some very candid discussions about what could be done to improve the results, Dr. Schwartz revised the results and I'm 100% happy with the outcome now. He was very patient and supportive throughout the process, and so was his office staff. I'm very glad I trusted him to help me achieve what I was hoping for, because I got a great result and I can recommend him to others. Make sure you keep the lines of communication open throughout your pre- and post-op journey, and know that if you aren't feeling delighted with your outcome, you can have that conversation and get to a great result!"- E.S. / Google / Feb 18, 2020
Radiesse injections take place in one of the treatment rooms at Robert Schwartz Plastic Surgery in about 30 – 60 minutes after the consultation. First, you will be seated comfortably while the areas of injection are cleaned and marked. Most patients feel only mild discomfort during their treatment at the initial prick of the needle, but if needed, a numbing agent can be applied to the injection sites. The dosage of Radiesse, selected at your personalized treatment planning session, will be prepared in an ultra-fine syringe. The marked injection sites will guide the injector in carefully administering Radiesse into the skin. After the injections are complete, a cold compress can be applied to help alleviate swelling and bruising.
What to Expect
After your treatment, you may see some bruising, redness, and swelling. This is common and should only last for about 5 – 10 days. These side effects can usually be concealed with makeup. If the side effects last longer or seem excessive, please do not hesitate to call Robert Schwartz Plastic Surgery. Most patients see some results immediately with better results developing over time. Your face should appear younger, softer, and have a natural glow. Radiesse tends to last longer than some of the other fillers (around 1 – 2 years). You should talk to Dr. Robert Schwartz during your consultation about when to schedule your next treatment to maintain your results.
