Breast reconstruction surgery in New York

When New York women learn that they have breast cancer, they have several important decisions to make. They are often worried about what will happen to their breasts, and many worry about undergoing a mastectomy because they will lose them. For many women, the breasts make them feel feminine. Dr. Edmund Kwan understands the importance of the breasts to a woman, and provides breast reconstruction surgery.

What is breast reconstruction surgery?

Breast reconstruction surgery, following a mastectomy, often involves the placement of breast implants. Breast implants are a way for women to restore their appearance. Breast implants can look completely natural when performed after or during a mastectomy, and allow women to move on with their lives following their diagnosis.

What are the benefits of breast reconstruction surgery?

  • Women can maintain their appearance even after their mastectomy
  • Women maintain their feeling of femininity with breast implants
  • Women do not feel ashamed of their breasts
  • Women often choose to move forward with mastectomy to avoid radiation and chemotherapy thanks to the reconstructive procedure

What our patients say


Dr. Kwan adeptly remedied an excess of my eyelid skin that was originally considered just an aesthetic adjustment. As his work was performed with the utmost efficiency and convenience, it was completely unexpected and so much more amazing to discover that he actually had also relieved me of the constant, annoying rubbing of my previously tired and uncomfortable eyes. Apparently, I had never realized how weary and heavy my eyelids were and just how frequently I used to rub them prior to his quick fix. Now I have the best of both worlds, a younger look, and highly refreshed eyes! Moreover, Dr. Kwan's confident yet comforting approach had me so relaxed prior to committing to something that I was honestly a bit nervous undertaking in the first place.Thank you, Dr. Kwan!
