Asian Nose

As humans, we are highly conscious when it comes to even the tiniest details in facial features. This is not because we are vain, but because the face is where a large percentage of our communication comes from. The features of the face all work together to create an overall image that tells the world a lot about you. When the face is imbalanced, we may be sending the wrong messages. At the very least, imbalance in facial features can make one feel less satisfied about his or her appearance.

One such facial feature that many people find important is the nose. During his eighteen years of experience in plastic, reconstructive and ethnic surgery, Dr. Kwan has seen many Asian patients who are unhappy with the size and shape of their nose.

Comparing the shape and size of the ethnic nose with the Caucasian nose, there are very few similarities in most cases. Though ethnic nose surgery is not about recreating a perfectly Caucasian nose on an ethnic face, many of our Asian patients come to us seeking better shape and projection in this facial feature. The general principles which govern Asian rhinoplasty are vastly similar to that of a Caucasian procedure. However, the characteristics of the Asian nose call for a varied approach and different technical execution, two aspects of Asian plastic surgery that Dr. Kwan has mastered in his cosmetic surgery career.

Certain cases of the Asian nose reshaping may require reducing and narrowing the nasal bone to create a more attractive shape. A commonly used solution for a more aesthetically pleasing nose is nasal implants, which have an excellent track record. They are known to be precise, safe and nearly free of complications.

Dr. Kwan's consultation process is a very elaborate one. In order to ensure maximum patient satisfaction, Dr. Kwan spends time determining the right size, thickness and shape of the nose. Dr. Kwan uses both his technical experience and artistic eye to ensure the right choices are made. This will make sure that the nose is attractive on its own and in combination with other facial features. The measurements are used to customize the implant. Dr. Kwan makes sure that the thickness of the implant is sufficient enough to maintain the ethnic identity of the patient.

    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! .
