"Let it Flow" by Dr. Edmund Kwan - Plastic Surgeon at Edmund Kwan, M.D.
What made you write the book 'Let It Flow'?
In my practice I get patients who suffer from chronic diseases such as high blood pressure, high cholesterol, diabetes & heart disease. I thought it is a natural process that people go through as they got old.
But then I realized as I was operating on many of these patients especially the ones who have these chronic diseases that their blood flow is different, and because the blood flow is compromised the healing process is slowed as well.
This had me thinking of how important blood flow is which led me to write this book “Let it Flow’.
What are the main plastic suregry procedures Dr. Kwan perform?
In his practice he practices plastic and reconstructive surgery. Which mean that he does cosmetic surgeries such as eyelids, noses, breast implants, tummy tucks as well as complex reconstruction for breast, head and neck. He also does reconstructive surgery on patients who have been in car accidents where he reconstructs their bones.
He has been in practice for the past 25 years.
