Asian nose surgery performed with precision by your New York City surgeon

Dr. Kwan believes that in doing Asian Rhinoplasty, the surgeon needs to be as conservative as possible. If the nose bridge is built too high, or the shape is changed too much, the person might actually look a bit more Caucasian and less Asian. It is equally important to understand the patient's needs as to how they want to build their bridge. Some patients do want to have a more Caucasian looking nose. Dr. Kwan's opinion is that most patients benefit the most from a conservative type of buildup of the bridge.

While doing a bit less with the bridge, Dr. Kwan then places the emphasis of the Asian rhinoplasty procedure on shaping the tip of the nose. "If we stick with the more conservative thickness of the nasal implant, then the patients will get a much more natural looking nose, and still retain their ethnicity," says Dr. Kwan.

Rhinoplasty, like other forms of cosmetic surgery, is extremely customized. During initial consultations with patients, Dr. Kwan listens carefully to their desired outcome, as well as their concerns. The goal of any cosmetic procedure is to enhance the features that concern the patient while also retaining his or her most natural aesthetic. Though Asian men and women may request certain changes to enhance their overall facial contours, Dr. Kwan is careful to perform procedures with exact precision in order to promote a healthy, natural beauty.

Asian rhinoplasty may include the placement of a nasal implant to build up the nose, or use a patient's own cartilage to reshape the tip. In some cases, the nose needs to be narrowed in order to build the right height. Whatever the situation, Dr. Kwan brings eighteen years of cosmetic surgical experience to the table, letting each patient know that he or she is in very capable hands.

There are several benefits to working with a plastic surgeon skilled specifically in ethnic facial surgeries.

    Dr. Kwan is by far the most talented surgeon I have EVER crossed paths with. I came to Dr. Kwan after an under eye fat transplant, performed 'by another' plastic surgeon, which deformed my face. It was only until I was under Dr.Kwan's care that the deformity was corrected. Dr. Kwan literally gave me back my beauty. This was a priceless feeling. That was about 4 years ago, I can assure you ever since- Dr. Kwan is the ONLY plastic surgeon I trust my face and body to. I look forward to my body contouring procedure coming up in a few weeks!! :)

    The staff treated me very kindly, with respect and genuine smiles. Dr Kwan is a real professional in my opinion. He took the time to listen to my story, addressed my concerns and took his time to walk me through the process and give me his opinion and explanation on his recommendation. I had my surgery in his practice and we went over everything again before I met up with the anesthesiologist, who was equally as nice and professional as everyone else at his practice. We started counting bikes ... and after bike #6 I fell a sleep. When I woke up, he was there to tell me I did great and before I knew it I was in a taxi cab back home with my best friend who came to pick me up. So I don't know if this is typical, but I had no pain whatsoever after the surgery. . I am very very happy with the results. Dr Kwan did an amazing job and I couldn't be more pleased.

    I was invovled in an automobile accident last May, 2013. The outcome from the emergency room left me with 5 stitches on the bridge of my nose, and the tip of my nose was missing due to the severe impact of the accident. I called and scheduled an appointment to visit Dr. Kwan so he could assess my nose. Upon arriving to the office, I was immediately impressed with the facility, service, and profesionalism of his staff. Dr. Kwan met with me and examined my nose and in detail, he explained the approach he would take in order to get my nose like brand new again.On the day of my surgery, I was met by Dr Kwan, who performed the surgery, himself. His Anestigeologist was very informative and professional as well. The outcome of Phase 1 was a success. In addition to that, the staff even called my medication into the pharmacy that way it would be ready as soon as I left the office. My nose is 98% back to normal, I now look forward to Phase 2 to be completed. After that procedure is done I am positive my nose will look absolutely perfect and I will be back to my confident self again. Thanks Dr Kwan and Staff.

    I have had several surgeries with Dr Kwan, and would recommend him highly. Liposuction of abdomen and love handles came out smooth. Upper eyelids look younger and refreshed, and the Basal Cell Cancer he cut out of my nose is not even visible, despite the fact that it was right along the rim of my left nostril.

    I have been using Dr Kwan for over 10 years now. I have had many different procedures and all of them have turned out great. One of the breast augmentations had a crimp in the left breast and he had no problem going in to revise it to assure my satisfaction. I have always liked the way he answers each of my concerns and we go over everything for each procedure I've done several times to assure we are on the same page :) Take a list of any questions or concerns an I guarantee you will love your results no matter what procedure he is doing for you! .
