Breast reduction surgery boosts confidence and quality of life for patients near Fort Lee, NJ

Patients of Dr. Edmund Kwan in Fort Lee, NJ enjoy the life changing benefits of breast reduction surgery.

Mammaplasty refers to surgical procedures that alter the appearance of the breasts. Augmentation mammaplasty to enlarge the breasts is the most commonly-performed cosmetic surgical procedure in the United States. However, the American Society of Plastic Surgeons reports there has been a dramatic spike in reduction mammaplasty to decrease the size of the breasts.

For more than two decades, Board-certified plastic surgeon and reconstructive surgeon, Dr. Edmund Kwan, has applied his acumen and skill to successfully perform Breast Reduction Surgery in Fort Lee, NJ and the surrounding area. Dr. Kwan also specializes in Asian plastic surgery procedures; he works with many different types of patients and is accustomed to tailoring treatment to each person’s unique preferences and needs. As a skilled provider of many surgical procedures across a diverse community of patients, Dr. Kwan routinely sees the transformative effect breast reduction has on a woman’s quality of life. The benefits go beyond cosmetic concerns. Reduction mammaplasty allows patients to address functional problems, discomfort, and other side effects caused by large breasts, and to avoid health issues associated with disproportionately heavy breasts.

Lose weighty breasts; gain so much more

Dr. Kwan and his team see it time and again – the size of a woman’s breasts can weigh heavy on her — emotionally and physically. You may be among those women who feel that others spend more time looking at your breasts than your face. Perhaps, you don’t like the way clothes drape over your figure, or you avoid some garments or designers out of anxiety that those options would be “too revealing.” If all of this sounds familiar, you may be a great candidate for reduction mammaplasty.

Likewise, your breasts may literally weigh you down. Your mobility may be limited, because breasts simply “get in the way.” They can get in the way of doing sports, exercise, and other activities and hobbies that you love – or that help you to maintain a healthy weight and body. You may have back, shoulder, and neck pain or frequent headaches. Bra straps can be painful when they dig into your skin, and irritation or rashes under skin creases or folds may also cause discomfort or become scaly, itchy, and blistered. You can be free of the emotional and physical baggage caused by breasts that are oversized for your frame at the office of Edmund Kwan, M.D.

It’s important to note that many health insurance plans cover “medically-necessary” procedures, and breast reduction surgery is often considered medically necessary due to the health problems associated with oversized breasts. Dr. Kwan will also discuss payment options and answer any questions you may have about the expenses related to breast reduction surgery during a fee-free consultation. Dr. Kwan’s patients find great value in a procedure that allows them to be comfortable in their own skin, and to change their lives for the better in so many ways.

During your consultation, Dr. Kwan will discuss any health conditions or potential risks. As with other procedures performed by Dr. Kwan, it’s generally advised to stop smoking or using other tobacco products well in advance of surgery. Aspirin and some other medications and supplements can affect your healing and increase risks such as bleeding and adjusting or avoiding drugs and other products may be advised before surgery.

  •  Edmund Kwan, M.D. - reviews by Tina R
    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!! :)
  •  Edmund Kwan, M.D. - Reviews Mascha N
    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 involved 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 professionalism 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 Anesthesiologist 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.
  •  Edmund Kwan, M.D. - Reviews T. Cannon
    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 and I guarantee you will love your results no matter what procedure he is doing for you! .
