Facial Reconstructive Surgery in the NYC Tri-State area

Facial deformities can be a source of continuous embarrassment and low self-esteem for an individual. Such facial deformities might be the result of a face injury, trauma, cancer surgery, or even other surgeries. However, with facial reconstruction, Dr. Kwan can help you step out of the shadows and be proud of your face and your overall profile. Dr. Kwan uses his technical expertise and eighteen years of experience to judge how patients with facial deformities can be helped.

Some patients may have suffered facial trauma and may be left only with disfiguring scars. If there is no bony injury at all, Dr. Kwan removes the scars with a simple skin graft or closes it up leaving a nearly invisible thin line.

For patients with bony injuries, Dr. Edmund Kwan focuses on place reductions of the broken bones. The affected bones are broken up again and repositioned to give a more aesthetically pleasing profile to the face. If patients are still unhappy with the end result, they are taken in for secondary reconstruction. In secondary reconstruction, Dr. Kwan may use simple implants or fat induction techniques for depressed areas. Both these methods adopted by Dr. Kwan are straightforward and effective in camouflaging fractures.

What our patients say

J

I recently had an accident that resulted in an extensive laceration to the very prominent part of my face. When the laceration repair work & stitches performed by specialists at the Emergency Room and the hospital where I sought treatment following the accident turned out to be subpar at best, I was fortunate to find Dr. Edmund Kwan.

Dr. Kwan is a great diagnostician. Thanks to his keen ability to attend to details and the depth of his experience, Dr. Kwan was able to identify the problem and offered a real solution. His approach was prompt, precise, and straightforward. Under his exceptionally skillful hands, the wound had to be excised and carefully put together again, but I could not be more pleased by the result and his truly outstanding skill.

Equally impressive is his dedication to his patients. His entire staff at his office is friendly, efficient, and respectful. Having to face a potential disfigurement resulting from the facial laceration has been difficult; however, knowing that I am in good hands with Dr. Kwan who could deliver the best possible result has brought me a sigh of relief.

In short, Dr. Kwan is exceptional in every respect, representing the epitome of what a plastic surgeon should be, and has the complete command of his specialty. While his impressive credential and proven records should speak for itself, I will simply add that Dr. Edmund Kwan is a consummate professional. I would highly recommend Dr. Kwan to others.
