New York City Blepharoplasty has suddenly become very popular among many older patients. Factors such as the environment, stress and age can cause the upper eyelids, as well as the delicate area under the eyes, to accumulate excess fat and skin. Though sagging and the accumulation of fat around the eyes may be slight – a gradual process, the changes that occur may make a person seem older, tired, and even unfriendly or sickly. Affected by changes in the skin around the eye, men and women may find that they have lower self-esteem, less confidence in interacting with others. When your outer appearance does not match your inner vigor and spirit, you may lose your desire to engage in life as much as you once did.

For such patients, Blepharoplasty, or eyelid surgery, can be a great solution. New York City Blepharoplasty can help correct puffy under-eye bags and drooping upper eyelids by altering the areas around the upper and lower eyelids. As part of this procedure, Dr. Edmund Kwan focuses on removing excess muscle, skin and fat from these areas to create a youthful and refreshed appearance. Men and women who crave a revitalized appearance may choose to have the upper lids treated, the lower lids, or both, depending on need. It can be helpful to bring a picture of your younger self, when you were satisfied with the appearance of your eyes, to your consultation.

What our patients say


Dr. Kwan adeptly remedied an excess of my eyelid skin that was originally considered just an aesthetic adjustment. As his work was performed with the utmost efficiency and convenience, it was completely unexpected and so much more amazing to discover that he actually had also relieved me of the constant, annoying rubbing of my previously tired and uncomfortable eyes. Apparently, I had never realized how weary and heavy my eyelids were and just how frequently I used to rub them prior to his quick fix. Now I have the best of both worlds, a younger look, and highly refreshed eyes! Moreover, Dr. Kwan's confident yet comforting approach had me so relaxed prior to committing to something that I was honestly a bit nervous undertaking in the first place.Thank you, Dr. Kwan!

Help for a hollowed appearance

The prime goal of Blepharoplasty is to remove wrinkled and excess skin. As fat and loose skin is removed from the eyelids and the areas around them, the eyes become brighter and provide a new glow to the face. Dr. Kwan is also specialized in restoring hollowed eyes. This "hollowed" look is usually caused by sunken upper eyelids. Dr. Kwan helps restore beauty to such eyes by injecting a small quantity of fat into this area. He uses the same technique for lower eyelid skin where prominent wrinkles exist.

Dr. Edmund Kwan's experience in the field of cosmetic and reconstructive surgery spans over eighteen years. This experience in combination with his excellent academic record has proven invaluable to many patients.

  •  Edmund Kwan, M.D. - reviews by Tina R
    Dr. Kwan is by far the most talented surgeon I have EVER crossed paths with. I came to Dr. Kwan after an under eye fat transplant, performed 'by another' plastic surgeon, which deformed my face. It was only until I was under Dr.Kwan's care that the deformity was corrected. Dr. Kwan literally gave me back my beauty. This was a priceless feeling. That was about 4 years ago, I can assure you ever since- Dr. Kwan is the ONLY plastic surgeon I trust my face and body to. I look forward to my body contouring procedure coming up in a few weeks!! :)

    The staff treated me very kindly, with respect and genuine smiles. Dr Kwan is a real professional in my opinion. He took the time to listen to my story, addressed my concerns and took his time to walk me through the process and give me his opinion and explanation on his recommendation. I had my surgery in his practice and we went over everything again before I met up with the anesthesiologist, who was equally as nice and professional as everyone else at his practice. We started counting bikes ... and after bike #6 I fell a sleep. When I woke up, he was there to tell me I did great and before I knew it I was in a taxi cab back home with my best friend who came to pick me up. So I don't know if this is typical, but I had no pain whatsoever after the surgery. . I am very very happy with the results. Dr Kwan did an amazing job and I couldn't be more pleased.

    I was involved in an automobile accident last May, 2013. The outcome from the emergency room left me with 5 stitches on the bridge of my nose, and the tip of my nose was missing due to the severe impact of the accident. I called and scheduled an appointment to visit Dr. Kwan so he could assess my nose. Upon arriving to the office, I was immediately impressed with the facility, service, and professionalism of his staff. Dr. Kwan met with me and examined my nose and in detail, he explained the approach he would take in order to get my nose like brand new again.On the day of my surgery, I was met by Dr Kwan, who performed the surgery, himself. His Anesthesiologist was very informative and professional as well. The outcome of Phase 1 was a success. In addition to that, the staff even called my medication into the pharmacy that way it would be ready as soon as I left the office. My nose is 98% back to normal, I now look forward to Phase 2 to be completed. After that procedure is done I am positive my nose will look absolutely perfect and I will be back to my confident self again. Thanks Dr Kwan and Staff.

    I have had several surgeries with Dr Kwan, and would recommend him highly. Liposuction of abdomen and love handles came out smooth. Upper eyelids look younger and refreshed, and the Basal Cell Cancer he cut out of my nose is not even visible, despite the fact that it was right along the rim of my left nostril.
  •  Edmund Kwan, M.D. - Reviews T. Cannon
    I have been using Dr Kwan for over 10 years now. I have had many different procedures and all of them have turned out great. One of the breast augmentations had a crimp in the left breast and he had no problem going in to revise it to assure my satisfaction. I have always liked the way he answers each of my concerns and we go over everything for each procedure I've done several times to assure we are on the same page :) Take a list of any questions or concerns and I guarantee you will love your results no matter what procedure he is doing for you! .
