NYC area plastic surgeon explains cheekbone surgery

Many patients who want to restore the balance of their face and reduce a wide appearance may benefit from cheekbone surgery. Dr. Edmund Kwan, MD of NYC provides procedures such as cheekbone reduction to help in improving the harmony and symmetry of the face, especially in patients of Asian ethnicity.

Cheek Bone Surgery NYC

The best candidates for cheekbone surgery are those who want to reduce very large cheekbones and address the symmetry of their facial anatomy. Patients are encouraged to visit with Dr. Edmund Kwan, MD of NYC for an initial consultation appointment to find out if their facial proportions would benefit from cheekbone reduction. Patients will have a thorough examination completed, which will also include x-rays of the face to determine the bone structure and where changes can be made for optimum results. Patients will also discuss with their doctor what to expect during and after their procedure in order to be properly prepared for the surgery.

On the day of surgery, patients are hospitalized and put under general anesthesia. An incision is made to access the cheekbones and excess bone will be removed to reduce the appearance and bring back harmony and symmetry to the face. Patients are then moved to a recovery room to awaken from the procedure. Depending on the severity of the surgery, patients may be in recovery at the hospital for one to two days.

Patients can expect swelling for several weeks after their procedure, but as the face heals from surgery, patients will see the results. A follow-up appointment may be necessary to ensure proper healing and recovery. Following after-care instructions is important to make sure that infection does not develop and the area heals properly. Dr. Edmund Kwan, MD provides all of his patients with post-procedure instructions after cheekbone reduction surgery.

Dr. Edmund Kwan, MD of NYC is excited to offer cheekbone surgeries for patients who are ready to achieve a more beautiful appearance with plastic surgery. Contact his team today (212) 734 4488 to schedule a consultation visit and find out if cheekbone reduction or implants can help you!

What our patients say


I recently had an accident that resulted in an extensive laceration to the very prominent part of my face. When the laceration repair work & stitches performed by specialists at the Emergency Room and the hospital where I sought treatment following the accident turned out to be subpar at best, I was fortunate to find Dr. Edmund Kwan.

Dr. Kwan is a great diagnostician. Thanks to his keen ability to attend to details and the depth of his experience, Dr. Kwan was able to identify the problem and offered a real solution. His approach was prompt, precise, and straightforward. Under his exceptionally skillful hands, the wound had to be excised and carefully put together again, but I could not be more pleased by the result and his truly outstanding skill.

Equally impressive is his dedication to his patients. His entire staff at his office is friendly, efficient, and respectful. Having to face a potential disfigurement resulting from the facial laceration has been difficult; however, knowing that I am in good hands with Dr. Kwan who could deliver the best possible result has brought me a sigh of relief.

In short, Dr. Kwan is exceptional in every respect, representing the epitome of what a plastic surgeon should be, and has the complete command of his specialty. While his impressive credential and proven records should speak for itself, I will simply add that Dr. Edmund Kwan is a consummate professional. I would highly recommend Dr. Kwan to others.
