New York area doctor explains the facelift procedure

Patients in New York who are considering improving the appearance of their face with plastic surgery are welcome to speak to Dr. Edmund Kwan about the facelift procedure. A facelift is a surgical treatment that is used to reduce fine lines, wrinkles, and skin laxity in the facial area. The procedure is used to turn back time for patients with moderate to severe signs of aging.

  • He has almost two decades of experience
  • The results he provides exceed expectations for many of his patients

Describe the facelift procedure

Dr. Edmund Kwan performs the traditional facelift under general anesthesia as an outpatient procedure. During the surgery, incisions are placed along the hairline on the scalp and behind the ear. Then, the underlying tissue is tightened, as well as the skin. Excess skin is removed at this time. Then, the surgeon stitches the skin back in place behind the ear and on the scalp where it will eventually become inconspicuous. This ensures patients do not have scarring on noticeable areas of the face.

A note about crow’s feet and forehead folds

Dr. Edmund Kwan will advise patients that a traditional facelift procedure will not correct issues such as forehead folds and crow’s feet because it focuses on the lower two-thirds of the face. If you are interested in combatting these issues as well, talk to our team about further procedures which can be done to provide results on the upper portion.

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.
