Board-certification matters

As a board-certified plastic and reconstructive surgeon, Dr. Edmund Kwan has met rigorous standards for certification by the American Board of Plastic Surgery – the only organization recognized by the American Board of Medical Specialties to certify plastic surgeons. Partly, to become a member of the American Society of Plastic Surgeons, Dr. Kwan completed:

  • Medical school at an accredited educational institution: Georgetown University Medical School
  • More than six years of surgical training and education post-graduation, of which at least three years of training must be in the discipline of plastic surgery; Dr. Kwan’s plastic surgery residency at Cornell-New York Presbyterian Hospital, fellowship at Sloan Kettering Cancer Hospital Center, hand surgery training at NYC’s Hospital for Special Surgery, and craniofacial trauma training at John Hopkins Medical Center more than fulfills this requirement.
  • Oral and written exams

This depth of training and experience makes board-certified surgeons like Dr. Kwan uniquely qualified to perform cosmetic and reconstructive treatments. Such knowledge isn’t allowed to wither on the vine; as a member of the ASPS, Dr. Kwan demonstrates ongoing proficiency by completing continuing medical education each year. You know your procedure is in good hands and that Dr. Kwan is up to date with the latest technologies, techniques, and standards. Dr. Kwan is so fluent in surgical procedures that, as the attending surgeon at New York Presbyterian Hospital and New Jersey’s Holy Name Medical Center, he teaches residents and medical students, and remains a frequently requested speaker at educational seminars and plastic surgery conferences.

To maintain membership, Edmund Kwan, MD must furthermore perform surgery in an accredited, state-licensed or Medicare-certified facility. Dr. Kwan’s ambulatory surgery facility checks all the right boxes. It is certified by the American Association for Accreditation of Ambulatory Surgery Facilities. AAAASF-certification is considered to be the “gold standard” in ambulatory surgery facility accreditation. To attain this status, the facility has demonstrated compliance with a stringent set of standards, including strict requirements for directors and specialists, and staff credentialing. The center also passed a thorough survey conducted by a qualified AAAASF surveyor, an objective third-party that substantiates the facility is fully equipped to perform plastic surgery procedures.

Like Dr. Kwan himself, the facility is subject to ongoing compliance requirements, including reevaluation through both self- and onsite surveys. Dr. Kwan has safely administered all types of anesthesia, local to general and IV sedation, and successfully performed thousands of surgeries from this state-of-the-art space.

In addition to the peace of mind that comes with an experienced specialist and myriad safeguards, Edmund Kwan, MD sets itself apart from other plastic surgery practices in NYC with:

  • Unique treatments you can’t find most anywhere else – Trained by a pioneer in Asian plastic surgery, Dr. Robert S. Flowers, Dr. Kwan is well-versed at treatments to meet the goals of his diverse, multi-ethnic and multi-cultural patient base. These procedures include surgical facial contouring, such as forehead smoothing, and cheek and jaw reduction. If not for Dr. Kwan’s offices in Manhattan, Queens (Flushing), and New Jersey (Fort Lee), many patients would have to travel overseas to get these types of procedures.
  • Precision techniques, advanced technologies without the prohibitive price tag – NYC may represent some of the priciest real estate around, but you don’t have to spend a fortune to get the look and confidence that you deserve. Patients with a wide range of budgets have benefited from the experience of a skilled, board-certified surgeon and complementary, standout technologies, such as 3D imaging for facial reductions and augmentations.

Dr. Kwan is also adept at striking that balance between enhancing each patient’s one-of-a-kind features while preserving his or her ethnic integrity.

What our patients say


I’m a patient there since 2000.About 5 weeks ago I had breast reduction and breast lift. What a fast recovery!! I was able to go back to work after 4days of my surgery. I had terrible pain on my back and shoulder (because of weight on my breast) now all the pains are gone. The shape just came out beautiful Dr.Kwan did such a amazing job. He called and checked on me how I was doing after 2days the surgery. (I was so impressed) also I’m so pleased about their staffs. Rebecca the manager there, I know her since 2000 she was so nice the whole time She constantly called checking on me. She explained to me what I should do before and after the surgery so kindly. The whole time I felt so comfortable and pleased. I feel like I’m living new life again!
