What are the benefits of a brow lift procedure?

benefits of a brow lift procedure

A brow lift is performed through an incision in the scalp, under the hair. Therefore, the scar remains hidden within the scalp. From there, the surgery is done all the way down to the brow area, and the entire brow is elevated. Thereafter, the brow is placed back in its proper position. This means that patients no longer have to elevate their forehead to lift their brow because it has been placed in the correct position. As a result, the wrinkles on the forehead disappear. The frown wrinkles also disappear because the frown muscle is taken away. The eyes appear … Continue reading

Patients can usually go back to work within 10 days after the surgery.

Following the surgery, the patient may experience some swelling, as well as black and blue eyes. However, most patients will recover fairly quickly. If they go out after a week, people will not be able to tell that they had anything done. Therefore, the time to get back to work is fairly short with a brow lift surgery. Nevertheless, patients are advised … Continue reading

Is forehead contouring a common surgery? And how often do you do it?

Nearly 15 years ago, forehead contouring surgeries were not as common as they are now. During that time, most forehead contouring procedures were done on patients who met with car accidents which caused permanent indentation or forehead irregularity from dents or breaks in the forehead bone. Moreover, patients who had prior surgery for forehead irregularities or who had suffered gunshot wounds were subjected to forehead contouring surgery during that time. As time passed by, the scope of patients on which forehead contouring surgery was performed extended from medical to cosmetic reasons. As such, forehead contouring surgery was not only performed … Continue reading

Complications arising from a forehead contouring surgery are minimal since bone cement is used instead of silicone implants.

Unlike other surgeries, the likelihood of patients suffering from extrusions and/or … Continue reading

    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 involved 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 professionalism 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 Anesthesiologist 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 and I guarantee you will love your results no matter what procedure he is doing for you! .
