NYC area surgeon describes jaw shave surgery

There are many facial surgeries available at the practice of Dr. Edmund Kwan. His plastic and reconstructive surgery practice is available to help patients with solutions for improving the face and body. When Asian patients visit the practice, they are often interested in ethnic surgeries from a professional who has the experience to provide them with natural enhancement of the facial elements. Patients in the NYC area who are dealing with a too-prominent jaw line are often encouraged to contact Dr. Kwan to ask about jaw shave surgery.

Jaw Shave Surgery NYC

Caucasian patients who visit Dr. Edmund Kwan may be seeking ways of making the jaw line prominent, while Asian patients are often in search of a method of reducing the prominence of their jaw line. Jaw shave surgery is often the best way to narrow the face for both men and women. The procedure is like most other surgeries and can be rather invasive, but general anesthetics are used for comfort. Patients are also given pain medications and after-care instructions to ensure they are not experiencing unnecessary pain and discomfort following their procedure.

Some Asian patients may also be a great candidate for non-surgical jaw shaving. This may include the use of injectables to add volume to the jaw line to make the chin look much less dramatic and round out the face for a more feminine appearance. This may be a better and cheaper alternative for patients who do not feel prepared for a surgical procedure. Dr. Edmund Kwan, MD may suggest this for patients who have mild changes to make to their appearance and are not dealing with significant aesthetic concerns.

If you live in or around the NYC area and are interested in learning more about jaw shave surgery or other procedures for enhancing the natural appearance of the face, contact Edmund Kwan, M.D. today 718 661 4580 . We welcome patients who are new to the practice and are ready to find out how plastic surgery can help them achieve the appearance they have always desired.

What our patients say


Dear Dr. Kwan, It's been six weeks since I had my over four procedures done and the results are all amazing. I am especially impressed with my tummy tuck. No matter how much I exercised I could never achieve the abs I wanted. It's only six weeks and my scar is already fading. My clothes all fit incredibly well now and I am a true 32 waste!

I can't wait until the summer to show off my abs. You are amazingly gifted and an artist as well. I am so glad I was recommended to you from my dermatologist.

In addition, your staff is extremely professional and is very knowledgeable about the pre and post operative procedures. I was also very impressed in the number of follow up calls I received after my surgery to check my status. Thanks for everything...
