Cheekbone Reduction

One 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.

Once Dr. Kwan has evaluated the width of the cheekbones, he may suggest filing it down. This procedure is done through a small incision within the mouth, and is a much less invasive procedure. This particular option provides patients with faster recovery times and provides effective results for mild to moderate changes.

What our patients say


I had jawbones and cheekbones reduction with Dr. Edmund Kwan about 2 months ago. He has absolutely done an amazing job, the operation was very successful. I did a lot of research before going into his office, and I was pretty scared of the cases that I read online of people who got their face or nerves damaged. However, I was no longer scared after the consultation with Dr. Kwan because of his confidence, and he knew what he was doing.
For Dr. Kwan’s office, everything was clean, professional and well-organized. Other staff is nice, and professional, too.
Overall, I’m happy with everything, and I definitely recommend Dr. Edmund Kwan.
