Can NYC area patients get surgery to improve a drooping eyelid?

Eyelid drooping is a condition that can result in sagging skin of the eyelid that may even obstruct one’s vision. This droopy eyelid is often caused by the levator muscle that may reduce and limit control. This condition is often seen in Asian patients but can occur to anyone, especially aging individuals who are experiencing extreme skin laxity on the face. Dr. Edmund Kwan, MD is a plastic surgeon in the NYC area who can help these patients with drooping eyelid surgery.

Surgery to Improve a Drooping Eyelid Dr. Edmund Kwan

Eyelid ptosis can be surgically improved in just one procedure. During this treatment, Dr. Edmund Kwan, MD will tighten the levator muscle that can greatly improve eyelid ptosis on its own. When necessary, he can also remove extra skin from the area to help tighten up the eyes and reduce the tired, aging appearance. He can also recreate an upper eyelid crease to ensure beautiful, natural-looking results. Most anyone can deal with eyelid ptosis, though the condition is often seen in Asian patients due to their ethnic characteristics.

Eyelid ptosis is just one of many facial surgeries available through the practice of Dr. Edmund Kwan, MD. Patients who want to rejuvenate their appearance are welcome to speak with him about the various solutions available.

What our patients say


Dr. Kwan performed a major surgery on my face 2 months ago, including eyebrow lift, facelift, upper and lower eyes. I am very impressed and delighted with the results. I look like myself only refreshed and younger. People never realized that I had anything done! They just thought I looked very well. Dr. Kwan enhanced my beauty without altering it which was exactly what I wanted. I am looking forward to the future knowing that I will only get better as I heal. I had heard of Dr. Kwan's reputation as one of the best plastic surgeons and I can't agree more. He is a skillful and very talented surgeon. The proof is now on my face. On the side, his office was beautiful, clean with state of the art equipment. The staff was professional and carding.
