For many Asian patients, a common problem experience with the cheekbones is that they give a wider appearance to the facial shape. This can make patients feel self-conscious about the way they look but is a common ethnic characteristic. It is not unusual for patients in the NYC area to visit with Dr. Edmund Kwan, MD about addressing these wide cheekbones and making them appear much thinner in a natural yet effective manner.
Dr. Edmund Kwan, MD is a quality plastic surgeon who can improve cheekbones with a procedure known as cheekbone reduction. Cheekbone reduction is done in a way to avoid the use of wires and plates that have been utilized in the past to keep the bones in place during the healing process. Instead, the cheekbones may be filed down, or broken and put back into place with better alignment. Filing down the cheekbones is a much less invasive procedure and may be beneficial for patients who have mild issues with their cheekbones instead of those who need dramatic changes made.
Dr. Edmund Kwan, MD will always make sure patients are appropriate candidates for this procedure before performing it. This is important to make sure men and women can enjoy the least invasive treatment option available. However, in order to achieve the results some patients prefer to see, more dramatic measures may need to be taken. This is where a consultation appointment with our team is beneficial to evaluate the severity of the condition and decide what treatment option is best for reduction of the cheekbone.
Dr. Edmund Kwan, MD is a plastic surgeon in the NYC area who offers not only cheekbone reduction surgery but many other facial treatments to his patients including jawbone reduction, profile surgery, rhinoplasty, facial reconstruction, eyelid lifts, scar removal, and even forehead contouring.
