Treatments for scars in the New York City area

Many types of scars can form on the skin. Patients in and around New York City may be faced with scarring on the face or body that can make them feel self-conscious. When problems such as this occur due to scars, it is important for patients to learn about effective scar treatments that can reduce or revise the visibility for full removal or reduction.

Treatments for Scars from Dr. Edmund Kwan

Dr. Edmund Kwan is a plastic and reconstructive surgeon who understands the importance of looking and feeling your best. He has helped both children and adults in reducing or eliminating scarring from trauma. He is also experienced in reducing hypertrophic and keloid scars, which are often large, widespread, and can be a source of embarrassment.

During an initial consultation appointment, Dr. Edmund Kwan can determine the type of treatment best for handling a specific scar. He will examine the area in which the scar is present and ask patients about the scar itself. Has it changed shape or size? Has it been there since birth or developed later? Is it uncomfortable, itchy, or bothersome in any way? Once Dr. Edmund Kwan has evaluated the scar, he can then make suggestions as to how to treat it.

Scar treatments will vary depending on the size, location, and type of scar. Dr. Edmund Kwan may provide skin grafting or may remove the scarred tissue and suture the area to reduce the present scarring. This can all be determined during the initial visit and evaluation, and patients will be educated on the suggested method of treatment from a quality professional who has years of experience diagnosing and treating many types of scarring on the skin.

Visiting a board certified cosmetic surgeon such as Dr. Edmund Kwan can help patients in rejuvenating their appearance and feeling better about themselves. Contact his practice in New York City today to learn more about scar revision and elimination with a wide range of treatments known to be safe, effective, and affordable for all budgets. In many cases, scar revision and treatment may even be covered by health insurance, and our office can help handle claims and determine if you may be eligible for a lowered payment due to insurance coverage. Take the time to invest in yourself and learn about scar treatments.

What our patients say


After a year of extensive searching and interviews, I chose Dr. Kwan to perform my abdominoplasty. He very patiently answered all of my many questions before, during and after the procedure. In fact, since I have always had issues with scarring (I am a very dark-skinned African American), he took great care and all of the time we needed to make sure that scarring was minimal. Now that it is three years post surgery there is barely a trace and I love the results. Also, I can't say enough about his wonderful staff. These ladies take care of business and do it all with a smile. Given his education, experience and NY location I added him to my pool to interview but didn't really think I could afford him. Unlike his greedy and very commercial competitors, he is reasonably priced. I knew that I was in good hands when I chose him but had no idea the degree to which he would go to ensure that it was a positive experience for both of us.
