NYC area doctor describes corrective jaw surgery

There are times when patients visit Dr. Edmund Kwan, MD of the NYC area concerned about a wider and thicker jawbone than they would prefer. This may make the face look considerably wider and can result in patients feeling rather self-conscious about their appearance. When concerns such as this arise, Dr. Edmund Kwan, MD may speak with patients about the benefits of corrective jaw surgery.

Corrective Jaw Surgery NYC

Jaw surgery is a little different from other bone surgeries as this one often involves removal of some of the muscle. The muscles around the jaw can result in the wider look. By addressing both the muscle and the bone, patients can enjoy a reduced jaw and thus, a thinner, more youthful face.
