Why might patients in NY consider cosmetic jaw surgery?

When a wider jaw makes patients look heavier than they really are, many patients begin to consider cosmetic jaw surgery. NY area doctor, Dr. Edmund Kwan, MD, is a plastic surgeon who can perform jaw surgeries to improve the contours for a more attractive appearance.

Cosmetic Jaw Surgery NY

Many patients consider this treatment because they want a more oval-shaped face, want a more prominent jaw, or want to thin down the area for the appearance of a V-shape around their chin. The only way to achieve these contours is with cosmetic jaw surgery.

Dr. Edmund Kwan, MD performs jaw surgery under general anesthesia as an outpatient procedure in his practice. Using an incision in the inside of the mouth, he can file down the jawbone and remove excess muscle that may be contributing to the fuller, wider jaw area. This does not affect the ability of patients to speak, chew, or perform any other regular activities.

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!
