What is a facelift?

The facelift procedure is a popular choice for many patients in Manhattan. The procedure is done to pull the skin upward and tighten it, resulting in fewer fine lines and wrinkles. While injectables such as neuromodulators and dermal fillers can help for a while, it may get to the point they are no longer effective in addressing concerns. This is when facelift procedures should be considered.

What is involved in a facelift?

The procedure is done in a hospital setting by our Board-certified plastic surgeon, Dr. Edmund Kwan. He essentially removes a section of skin from the forehead area and then lifts the face upwards. For some patients, a midface lift may be more helpful. For this, the skin is tightened and pulled toward the ear area into the hairline.

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.
