Cheekbone ReductionOne of the most popular procedures among Dr. Edmund Kwan's Asian patients is cheekbone reduction. Prominent cheekbones are a common feature in many Asians, and can be a source of embarrassment and self-consciousness for some. This is because large cheekbones can give the face a widened appearance. But as with all things, there is a solution. Extensive experience in facial reconstruction and ethnic surgery has helped Dr. Kwan to develop a special technique for narrowing the face.
Dr. Kwan narrows the face through a cheekbone reduction procedure. The first step involves breaking the patient's cheekbone. It is then reconfigured into the new position. The cheekbone will then settle into the new position as it heals, which eliminates the need for plates and wires that have been used in the past for this process.
*Individual results may vary
Patients considering a cheekbone reduction are encouraged to schedule a consultation visit with Dr. Kwan to determine their eligibility for surgery and find out if they are a proper candidate. Patients must have realistic expectations regarding the results, and must fully understand the risks and benefits of undergoing a surgical procedure such as this. Patients should also schedule time for healing and recovery to reduce risks such as infection.
Dr. Kwan is experienced in providing surgical solutions for patients of Asian ethnicity, and works closely with patients to help them address imperfections that may make them self-conscious or embarrassed.
