Fat Injections

Dr. Edmund Kwan, MD, Treatment of Fat Injections Dr. Edmund Kwan, MD, understands that everyone wants to look their best. When patients are dealing with a tired, aging appearance, they may benefit from plastic and reconstructive surgery at his practice. Fat injections are requested by many patients who want to reduce bags under their eyes and lost volume of their face.

Fat injections use fat cells harvested from other areas of the body. Dr. Edmund Kwan refines the fat before injecting it into specific areas of the face. It can be used on areas such as the eyes, temples, cheeks, and nasolabial folds to add much-needed volume for a more youthful appearance. It can be done in conjunction with other surgical treatments including face-lifts and neck lifts.

Most fat is removed from areas of the body such as the hip or thigh where patients may have excess fat cells and may have considered liposuction. The fat is removed with a syringe and then redistributed to areas of the face.

Fat injections are a wonderful alternative to dermal fillers, and provide more long-term results. The best candidates for fat injections (also known as fat grafting) are those who are experiencing areas of lost volume on the face. These patients may have undergone dermal fillers or collagen stimulators and been unhappy with the short-term results they provide. Patients who want a more permanent treatment may be deemed an appropriate candidate for treatments such as this.

Dr. Edmund Kwan, MD has years of experience in providing patients with facial rejuvenation surgeries while providing a harmonious, uniformed result that looks natural and beautiful. Patients visit his practice because of his expertise in plastic and reconstructive surgery, and enjoy the care they receive in his state-of-the-art facility.

    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! .
