NYC area doctor reviews the benefits of cheekbone reduction

Patients of Asian descent often struggle with a variety of specific concerns regarding their appearance. One of the most popular procedures for Asian patients is the cheekbone reduction procedure. Dr. Edmund Kwan, MD of the NYC area reviews with patients the benefits of having cheekbone reduction procedure done when they are extremely prominent and result in self-consciousness. Large cheekbones on Asians may make the appearance of the face look much wider than desired. Thankfully, plastic surgeons can provide cheekbone reduction surgery using a special technique that reduces recovery time and eliminates visible scarring.

Dr. Edmund Kwan, MD is a plastic surgeon who can help narrow the cheekbone using a special filing procedure. This treatment is done by making an incision in the mouth to access the cheekbones and reduce them without having to leave any visible scarring on the face. In some cases, the cheekbones may actually have to be broken to reconfigure the new position before filing is done. This may seem scary, but the procedure is done while patients are under general anesthetics and aftercare instructions are given to reduce any pain, inflammation, or risk of infection.

Patients must first determine if they are eligible for cheekbone reduction surgery. This requires them to visit with Dr. Edmund Kwan, MD in his practice for an evaluation of the skin and face to make sure patients are appropriate for this particular procedure and will achieve the results they desire. Cheekbone reduction is a cosmetic procedure and is not typically done for any medical concerns, making it an elective treatment that most health insurance companies will not help cover in cost. Patients can discuss the final cost of treatment and also learn about financing options available through our practice.

If you live in the New York area and have considered reducing the appearance of the cheekbones for better facial balance and to reduce the width of the face, contact Dr. Edmund Kwan, MD today to book a consultation appointment and examination to determine candidacy for cheekbone reduction procedures. Using a quality plastic and reconstructive surgeon is important for desirable, natural-looking results.

    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 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! .
