This past March, 47-year-old Danielle Koza sought the advice and expertise of Dr. Robert Schwarcz after she had an adverse reaction to a filler that was injected under her eyes which encapsulated forming a hard rock substance:

“For many years I was going to a nurse practitioner and injecting filler under my eyes to puff-out the areas that were hollowed-out and dark. The last time I had filler injections under the eyes, I had an adverse reaction and the filler encapsulated, forming a hard rock-like substance.  As a result, I had to have the filler dissolved and had to go back about 7 times. When all of the filler was finally dissolved, I looked crazy. My eyes appeared to be very deep-set and underneath the eyes looked completely deflated. The treating nurse partitioner advised I should seek a more permanent solution suggesting I have a lower blepharoplasty to resolve the issue instead of continuing with fillers.  

Prior to scheduling a consultation with Dr. Schwarcz, I had already spoken to several other doctors.  I did extensive research on Dr. Schwarcz’s background, and it was amazing. I even asked my step-father who is an ENT doctor to look into Dr. Schwarcz and after reviewing him, he told me “he was my doctor.”

When I first met Dr. Schwarcz, he had a great bedside manner and when I saw his work, I could tell he had a very light touch and was extremely artistic. I really liked him and had a great feeling about him: he seemed very genuine. During the consult, Dr. Schwarcz recommended a Triplanar Blepharoplasty which is an upper and lower blepharoplasty and a fat transfer from the abdomen to fill underneath the eye.                   A term he coined 10 years ago and has been doing it successfully for the past decade. I knew I really needed all three procedures, but I was apprehensive about the CO2 laser. I did it before and it took two weeks to recover and I was scared to do it.  Dr. Schwarcz explained that I needed the laser because the skin under my eyes was not the same as the skin on the rest of my face, it didn’t match.  I finally agreed to do the laser procedure because I trusted him.

I took pain medication immediately after surgery, and then, I only needed to take Tylenol. After the third day, I started to look really good and noticed the results. Only two weeks after the surgery, I was out in pubic walking around, and it wasn’t even noticeable that I was just recovering from surgery. I knew I had received a really great result. I put my trust in Dr. Schwarcz and the results are amazing!”

As individuals continue to seek the best options to maintain and enhance their natural beauty, Dr. Schwarcz has been a trusted source of rejuvenation for both men and women and his positive patient testimonials reveal that he has not only met but exceeded these expectations.
