Transform the appearance of your face with safe forehead contouring surgery in Fort Lee NJ

Dr. Edmund Kwan offers many surgery options including contouring to augment, reduce, or reshape the upper part of your face in Fort Lee NJ.

The forehead gets a lot of attention in plastic and cosmetic surgery circles. Today, you can rejuvenate wrinkled, fallen, or sunken areas of the forehead non-surgically with injectable treatments like Botox, or you can turn to a board-certified plastic surgeon like Dr. Edmund Kwan for surgical procedures such as a brow lift or forehead contouring surgery in Fort Lee NJ. The issues these procedures may seek to correct can be similar or related. Each option is available at Edmund Kwan, MD and can restore youthful vibrance and beautiful facial harmony for the right patient. Dr. Kwan combines a high degree of artistic skill and extensive training with experience treating a wide range of patients, across ethnicities. His understanding of different types of patient’s unique anatomical characteristics and needs contributes to desirable enhancement that preserves what makes you special and your ethnicity.

Why foreheads are at the forefront

Few portions of the face betray your age quite like the forehead. Faces tend to fall over time due to gravity, and the loss of fat and collagen and elastin, which contribute to youthful facial firmness and the ability for it to retain its shape once stretched. The size and curve of your forehead can also make your eyes look bigger or smaller than they actually are. Generally, common forehead procedures either involve altering the soft tissues or hard tissues (bone). The lease invasive of the procedures involves applying a solution to the muscles responsible for expression lines on your forehead, between or around the eyes. Most commonly known as Botox, this solution inhibits the muscles from contracting. When administered precisely by an experienced, qualified provider like Edmund Kwan, MD, you are still able to enjoy natural facial expressions – no “frozen face” – but the crow’s feet and frown lines are softened. The results from Botox aren’t permanent and require “maintenance” treatment. Plus, depending on your needs, you may benefit from surgical procedures instead.

Brow lifts safely and skillfully performed by Dr. Kwan may be recommended should your skin relaxation cause the eyebrows to droop, or the eyelids to appear hooded. Severe frown lines between the brows can make you look perpetually angry or severe, even when you are content or happy. Think of the procedure as a facelift that only modifies the upper part of the face. A small incision is made to access the underlying tissues. Through an incision well-hidden in the hairline, Dr. Kwan repositions tissues to lift the brow. The act of lifting the forehead has the added benefit of smoothing out furrows and creases.

A board-certified plastic surgeon like Dr. Edmund Kwan

Forehead contouring alters the hard tissues or bone. It may be performed with or without a brow lift, or other facial rejuvenation techniques and products. Usually, patients are good candidates for forehead contouring if their faces appear to have very prominent eyebrow bridges. Our female patients may desire more “feminine” contours, which generally feature a curved forehead. By softening this area of the face, it can open up your eyes and allow their true beauty to shine through. Likewise, many of Dr. Kwan’s Asian patients may desire augmentation to correct a flat or depressed forehead and to achieve that softer, feminine look. Dr. Kwan also applies his extensive craniofacial trauma and reconstructive surgery expertise to correct contour irregularities or bony osteomas associated with previous surgical procedures or trauma. Each of these different needs requires a different technique to achieve your goal look.

  • Incisions made in the hairline allow Dr. Kwan access to the treatment areas. The bone is burred down or reduced. Hair grows through the incisions, so they’re well-hidden. Afterward, the skin re-drapes normally.
  • For augmentation, the treatment areas are accessed as above. Then Dr. Kwan’s artistry shines; he’ll apply a safe, tissue-friendly synthetic bone cement to areas that need to be corrected or reshaped. He then expertly molds this “bone” to achieve the softer, pleasing forehead shape and appearance that you desire.

As with other types of procedures, forehead contouring is performed at our ambulatory surgical facility. The safety of this center has been validated by the American Association for Accreditation of Ambulatory Surgery Facilities (AAAASF).

  •  Edmund Kwan, M.D. - reviews by Tina R
    Dr. Kwan is by far the most talented surgeon I have EVER crossed paths with. I came to Dr. Kwan after an under eye fat transplant, performed 'by another' plastic surgeon, which deformed my face. It was only until I was under Dr.Kwan's care that the deformity was corrected. Dr. Kwan literally gave me back my beauty. This was a priceless feeling. That was about 4 years ago, I can assure you ever since- Dr. Kwan is the ONLY plastic surgeon I trust my face and body to. I look forward to my body contouring procedure coming up in a few weeks!! :)
  •  Edmund Kwan, M.D. - Reviews Mascha N
    The staff treated me very kindly, with respect and genuine smiles. Dr Kwan is a real professional in my opinion. He took the time to listen to my story, addressed my concerns and took his time to walk me through the process and give me his opinion and explanation on his recommendation. I had my surgery in his practice and we went over everything again before I met up with the anesthesiologist, who was equally as nice and professional as everyone else at his practice. We started counting bikes ... and after bike #6 I fell a sleep. When I woke up, he was there to tell me I did great and before I knew it I was in a taxi cab back home with my best friend who came to pick me up. So I don't know if this is typical, but I had no pain whatsoever after the surgery. . I am very very happy with the results. Dr Kwan did an amazing job and I couldn't be more pleased.

    I was involved in an automobile accident last May, 2013. The outcome from the emergency room left me with 5 stitches on the bridge of my nose, and the tip of my nose was missing due to the severe impact of the accident. I called and scheduled an appointment to visit Dr. Kwan so he could assess my nose. Upon arriving to the office, I was immediately impressed with the facility, service, and professionalism of his staff. Dr. Kwan met with me and examined my nose and in detail, he explained the approach he would take in order to get my nose like brand new again.On the day of my surgery, I was met by Dr Kwan, who performed the surgery, himself. His Anesthesiologist was very informative and professional as well. The outcome of Phase 1 was a success. In addition to that, the staff even called my medication into the pharmacy that way it would be ready as soon as I left the office. My nose is 98% back to normal, I now look forward to Phase 2 to be completed. After that procedure is done I am positive my nose will look absolutely perfect and I will be back to my confident self again. Thanks Dr Kwan and Staff.

    I have had several surgeries with Dr Kwan, and would recommend him highly. Liposuction of abdomen and love handles came out smooth. Upper eyelids look younger and refreshed, and the Basal Cell Cancer he cut out of my nose is not even visible, despite the fact that it was right along the rim of my left nostril.
  •  Edmund Kwan, M.D. - Reviews T. Cannon
    I have been using Dr Kwan for over 10 years now. I have had many different procedures and all of them have turned out great. One of the breast augmentations had a crimp in the left breast and he had no problem going in to revise it to assure my satisfaction. I have always liked the way he answers each of my concerns and we go over everything for each procedure I've done several times to assure we are on the same page :) Take a list of any questions or concerns and I guarantee you will love your results no matter what procedure he is doing for you! .
