Treatment Philosophy

My approach to care is comprehensive management of congenital, traumatic, and cosmetic concerns of the face, nose, and neck region. My unique training in ear, nose, throat, and facial plastic reconstructive surgery provides me the experience needed to care for the most complex issues. I strive to provide compassionate and individualized care to help create or restore form and function. Listening to each patient’s unique needs is an integral part of my Treatment Philosophy.

The process begins with a consultation after thoroughly reviewing your medical, surgical and cosmetic history. You will be given an opportunity to discuss your area of concern or topics of interest while he listens carefully to you. Then Dr. Shvidler will explain the range of treatment options most appropriate in your particular case. He will follow up with a treatment plan that addresses all of your concerns. Then when you are ready to move forward he will set an appointment that works best for your busy schedule. Dr. Joseph Shvidler’s mission is to enhance your life by his commitment to the highest quality patient satisfaction, excellent service and for a natural esthetic result you will be proud of.


Botulinum toxin, *Botox® is the product most used for the area between the brows, crow’s feet and forehead for delivering a naturally rested look. It is a member of the “wrinkle relaxer” class of injectable facial treatments and shares the spotlight with a couple of other products. They are all designed to reduce the lines and wrinkles and are all FDA approved. Botox has been used safely for over 30 years. If you are tired of brow heaviness, the appearance of tiredness or fatigue, or negative facial expressions that are inconsistent with your intent, then this wrinkle relaxer can smooth existing lines over time and restore a more youthful, fresh appearance.


Dermal fillers are an excellent choice for tackling the appearance of volume or fat loss in your face. They are effective for improving wrinkles which are visible at rest as opposed to those that appear with muscle action, as in smiling. Volume loss is due to facial aging which involves the natural loss of fat in the face as we age, making us look gaunt and more tired. Characteristics of the filler material make some lighter weight fillers more favorable for the tear troughs and lips. Other fillers are better for naso-labial folds and or cheeks. These fillers have more viscosity and particle size. Good candidates for fillers are those who do not want to correct with surgery. Dr. Shvidler has specialized training which allows him to best match the injectable to your specific aesthetic desire and needs. Fat transfer is a method used to treat wrinkles and loss of volume in both men and women. The result is a tightening, rejuvenated and natural appearance.


Lifts are cosmetic procedures that can dramatically improve the appearance and reverse the effects of aging. Your eyes are usually the first on your face to show signs of aging. That generally starts around the age of 40. The brow lift and eye lift give you a more youthful and pleasant appearance, free from the drooping eyebrows and upper eyelid bagginess. The neck lift helps tighten the skin of the neck and removes excess fat below the chin. This surgery can be a good alternative for someone who does not want or need a full face lift procedure. A face lift can remarkably improve the appearance of the face, with the longest lasting results. The goal of the face lift is to restore a youthful effect that appears natural, not to change your face. Dr. Shvidler carefully evaluates your specific aging issues to determine the best way to rejuvenate your facial features. He performs the most advanced types of surgical lifts to achieve the optimal results.


Laser resurfacing is a treatment to reduce facial wrinkles, fine lines, and skin irregularities, such as blemishes, acne scars, age and sun spots, facial redness, melasma, vascular malformations, warts, enlarged pores, chickenpox scars and other scars. A wide variety of lasers are available. The technique directs short, concentrated, pulsating beams of light at irregular skin, precisely removing skin layer by layer. The new skin cells that form during healing give the skin a tighter, healthier looking surface. The procedure can be done alone or with other cosmetic surgeries on the face.
