When might facial reconstruction be necessary for NYC area patients?

When might facial reconstruction be necessary for NYC area patients?

The signs of aging may cause both men and women to feel very self-conscious about their appearance. Skin laxity can result in fine lines, wrinkles, folds, and drooping skin around the eyes and jowls. Patients may lose volume in their cheeks and begin to appear as though they are not well rested and rejuvenated. When patients notice the signs of aging catching up with them, they may strongly consider the benefits of facial reconstruction.

Facial reconstruction may include one or more surgical procedures. Every patient is unique, so Dr. Edmund Kwan, MD considers the individual’s specific needs and develops a treatment plan that works best for him or her. Both men and women may have facial reconstruction completed in NYC.

Patients must first visit a plastic surgeon during a consultation appointment. This is the perfect time for patients to determine what procedures are best for reconstruction specific areas of the face. Deciding which treatments to undergo can be done with the assistance of Dr. Edmund Kwan, MD and his professional team.

Common facial surgeries include:

  • Brow lift
  • Face lift
  • Rhinoplasty (nose)
  • Cheekbone reduction
  • Asian plastic surgery
  • Jawbone reduction
  • Profile surgery
  • Eye lift
  • Forehead contouring
  • Scar removal
  • Fat injections

In other instances, patients may have specific bones of the face repositioned. This allows patients to make structural changes to their face that may be necessary. Patients with facial deformities can undergo facial reconstruction surgeries, as well as those who are unhappy with the natural contours of their face. Knowing what can be done to reconstruct the face is one way for patients to fully understand the extent of these procedures and how they can be life-altering for individuals who have been embarrassed, self-conscious, or unhappy with their natural appearance.

If you reside in the NYC area and you are considering facial reconstruction, contact Dr. Edmund Kwan, MD today to learn about the various ways he can address your aesthetics and assist you in achieving a more beautiful, natural-looking appearance.
