Facial Reconstruction

Facial deformities can be a source of continuous embarrassment and low self-esteem for an individual. Such facial deformities might be the result of a face injury, trauma, cancer surgery, or even other surgeries. However, with facial reconstruction, Dr. Kwan can help you step out of the shadows and be proud of your face and your overall profile. Dr. Kwan uses his technical expertise and eighteen years of experience to judge how patients with facial deformities can be helped.

Some patients may have suffered facial trauma and may be left only with disfiguring scars. If there is no bony injury at all, Dr. Kwan removes the scars with a simple skin graft or closes it up leaving a nearly invisible thin line.

For patients with bony injuries, Dr. Edmund Kwan focuses on place reductions of the broken bones. The affected bones are broken up again and repositioned to give a more aesthetically pleasing profile to the face. If patients are still unhappy with the end result, they are taken in for secondary reconstruction. In secondary reconstruction, Dr. Kwan may use simple implants or fat induction techniques for depressed areas. Both these methods adopted by Dr. Kwan are straightforward and effective in camouflaging fractures.

Cancer patients suffer the most from large facial defects. Patients may be left with large open areas in the face where the cancer has been removed. Depending on how long it has been since surgery, Dr. Kwan assesses whether to use skin grafts or to elevate flaps or even rearrange tissues to fill in the deformed area. Although these are Dr. Kwan’s commonly used set of techniques, he also presents patients with a variety of other options which will help them achieve their aesthetic dreams.

Facial reconstruction can be a life-changing procedure in a patient’s life. Dr. Kwan’s ultimate goal is to help patients find a way to realize their aesthetic ambitions irrespective of how gloomy the situation might look. If you think facial reconstruction can help you come out of the shadows, talk to Dr. Kwan right away!

    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! .
