Plastic surgeon joins BMSG team

  • Joining BMSG team: Dr Peter Schwartz

Bermuda Medical Specialties Group has added cosmetic plastic surgeon Peter Schwartz to its team of physicians.

Board-certified by the American Board of Plastic Surgery, he specialises in cosmetic plastic surgery of the face, breast and body.

Dr Schwartz is the chief of plastic surgery at Syosset Hospital. He also has privileges at North Shore University Hospital, Plainview Hospital and Glen Cove Hospital. With more than 20 years’ experience, Dr Schwartz specialises in various types of cosmetic plastic surgery procedures: facelifts, mini-facelifts, eyelid surgery, endoscopic surgery with small incisions, nose reshaping, breast augmentation/lift/reduction, liposuction, tummy tucks and many minimally invasive procedures.

He also speaks fluent Italian, French and German.

Dr Schwartz is a member of the American Society of Plastic and Reconstructive Surgeons, the American Society for Aesthetic Plastic Surgery, the Liposuction Society of North America, the New York State Medical Society and the Nassau County Medical Society.

Arlene Basden, medical director at BMSG, which is based at 3 Reid Street, Hamilton, said: “In addition to improving one’s appearance, cosmetic plastic surgery can be a medical solution for matters such as back and shoulder pain, loose skin and disfigurement due to accidents.”

Dr Basden added: “Residents of Bermuda demand access to a very high standard of medical care that many go overseas to receive it. We are very fortunate that Dr Schwartz has made his talent available to us in Bermuda.”

Dr Schwartz said: “The highest concern in my practice is the exceptional and individualised care of our patients, before, during and after cosmetic plastic surgery to improve their self-image and boost their self-esteem.

“Personalised excellence in cosmetic plastic surgery procedures is delivered through a continuous quest for outstanding medical knowledge with continuing education, combined with an artistic sense and use of the latest proven technological advances in cosmetic plastic surgery.”
