Many of the grateful patients of My Cosmetic Surgery corroborate to the high degree of professionalism and excellence in the results of this doctor's surgeries.


Dr. Schwarz began his undergraduate studies at the University of British Columbia in Vancouver, Canada, (1988-1993). This research and teaching center has been ranked among the best in the world.
Later, he moved to the School of Medicine (1993 - 1997) of the Western University of Ontario to study that career that he was passionate about from an early age, encouraged by the oncologist who attended to his father.
Although initially he was interested in Hematology and Cancer research, very soon the future doctor decided on plastic surgery, assisting in a rotation to the operation of a child with a cleft lip.
Once graduated, Dr. Schwarz came to the United States to continue his training in the specialty of General Surgery (1997 - 2004) at Wayne State University, in Detroit, Michigan. In addition, he obtained a Master's Degree in Molecular Biology and Genetics (1999 - 2001).
As part of his studies he also concluded the Residency in Plastic Surgery (2004 -2007) at Duke University located in Durham, North Carolina, and considered among the first universities in the United States.
Years of training and medical research guarantee the satisfaction of Dr. Schwarz´s patients, integrated to the team of surgeons of My Cosmestic Surgery since the end of 2017.
