What is rhinoplasty?

One of the most common procedures associated with cosmetic surgery is Rhinoplasty. It bears meaning to the words 'nose job' or 'nose surgery,' and has the potential to improve the appearance or the functionality of the nose through the correction of, reshaping of, or redefining of the structure.

The Rhinoplasty procedure, performed in a state-of-the-art surgical facility, can be done in a number of different ways, and is suitable for a wide variety of men and women from diverse ethnic backgrounds. For example, a Rhinoplasty can be performed on patients with wide noses or noses which have bumps on the bridge or wide tips. A nose that is too wide can be narrowed through precise technique. Bumps may be reduced to perfection, and the tip of the nose can be altered slightly for a dramatic effect. Sometimes, Rhinoplasty can be done on a patient for purposes of reconstruction in order to correct birth defects or problems with breathing.

Non Surgical Nose Job

A non-surgical nose job offers a new alternative to traditional Rhinoplasty. Using injections of gel solutions, the nose is shaped and contoured to achieve the desired look. Through the injection of gel to precise areas of the nose, the procedure can disguise a nasal bump or indentation, straighten or lift the nasal tip and increase the appearance of a flattened nasal bridge. A non-surgical nose job is completed in less than 20 minutes and requires no recovery time. Furthermore, the achieved results will remain for a few years.

Expectations from a Rhinoplasty Procedure

Since no two people have the exact same type of nose, and since there are many different variations of nose shape, size and projection, it is vital that the patient identify the correct and aesthetically pleasing procedure prior to the surgery. Sometimes patients desire a certain type of nose that may not match their facial shape. During the consultation process with the surgeon, the goal of surgery should be clearly discussed. Dr. Edmund Kwan has been performing Rhinoplasty on men and women of diverse ethnic backgrounds for over eighteen years. He is happy to explain the details of surgery, as well as expected outcome, with each patient prior to treatment.

If your nose is a facial feature that you feel is detracting from an attractive aesthetic rather than enhancing it, Rhinoplasty with New York City specialist Dr. Edmund Kwan could provide the perfect solution. Contact us in Manhattan, New Jersey, or Flushing for your consultation.

    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! .
