Breast Augmentation (Augmentation Mammaplasty)
Breast augmentation or enlargement, has regained its popularity in recent years. Women who seek augmentation want their chest to be both aesthetically pleasing in and out of their clothes. The ideal candidate for breast augmentation is anyone wishing to have more attractive breasts. The breast implants used today consist of saline and silicone. Both implants are safe and the silicone breast implants have now gained FDA approval.

Breast Lift (Mastopexy)
Patients may have adequate breast size but they have considerable sagging due to weight loss, pregnancies or aging. This type of patient may be a good candidate for a breast lift. During a breast lift, excess skin is removed, the breast is lifted, and the remaining skin is redraped. The resulting breast is fuller and firmer. The nipple position is better and the breast will have a more youthful appearance. Breast implants can be inserted during a breast lift for patients who wish to have simultaneous augmentation.

Breast Reduction (Reduction Mammaplasty)
Many patients suffer from breasts that are so enlarged that their physical activity may be compromised. These patients often have neck, shoulder and chronic back pain. Bra straps may also leave indentations and grooves in their shoulders. By reducing the volume and lifting the breasts, patients will have relief of these symptoms. A breast reduction is performed similarly to a full breast lift. Breast tissue is removed and sculpted to give the breast a natural tear drop shape. It is important to maintain adequate breast volume during reduction so that it is proportional to the body. Many patients will also retain nipple sensation following surgery.

Breast Reconstruction
Breast cancer continues to be on the rise in United States and each year many patients will undergo a mastectomy for their disease. Following a mastectomy, patients can be left with a deformed chest wall and an unpleasant scar. This can have devastating psychological consequences on the patient over time. For some women, breast reconstruction can be a rewarding procedure. Breast reconstruction can be performed at the time of the mastectomy or anytime thereafter. The surgery can result in a natural looking breast that closely resembles the other breast. Breast reconstruction can also restore positive feelings of self-image to cancer patients and be an overall satisfying experience for the patient.

    Edmund Kwan, M.D.
    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! .
