  • Eyelid surgery - Blepharoplasty corrects aging, droopy eyelids by tightening and removing excess skin, fat, and muscle.
  • Otoplasty - Cosmetic ear surgery corrects and balanced overly large or protruding ears.
  • Rhinoplasty - Rhinoplasty (nose job) restores facial symmetry, removes a nasal hump, addresses breathing issues, and meets other personal goals.
  • Ethnic rhinoplasty - Ethnic rhinoplasty is personalized to match the patient’s natural facial structure so that the results look authentic.
  • Revision rhinoplasty - Revision rhinoplasty is a complicated procedure that restores breathing and repairs the appearance of the nose after a failed nose job.
  • Facelift - Rhytidectomy creates more youthful contours along the jaw and lower face and may be combined with Botox or eyelid surgery to reduce signs of aging around the eyes.

Dr. Swartout's special interests include the development of exceptional rhinoplasty techniques for long-lasting, natural-looking nasal shapes and unrestricted nasal breathing. He also sees many patients seeking rhinoplasty revision to repair a prior nose job, as this complex procedure requires years of specialized training and experience to avoid complications.
