Consider Dr. Kwan of NYC for profile,
jaw, and cheek cosmetic surgery solutions

It is natural for people to be concerned about their appearance, especially the face. Though we have a subconscious desire to view attractive facial contours, and to have them ourselves, many people do not realize how much an attractive profile can add to the overall beauty of the face. Profile surgery in New York City by Dr. Edmund Kwan can help you achieve an aesthetically perfect profile. Dr. Edmund Kwan has over eighteen years of experience performing specialized procedures for patients. If you desire ideal proportions that enhance your natural beauty, his expertise can help you accomplish your goals. This is especially true with profile, jaw, and cheek cosmetic surgeries.

What is jaw and cheek cosmetic surgery?

Jaw and cheek surgery are often completed to improve the profile of the patient. Dr. Edmund Kwan uses a specialized V-line surgery that not only reduces a prominent jaw but can also create an ideal shape to the chin for balanced facial proportions. Definition may be added to the face by reducing or enhancing prominent cheekbones. During the initial consultation and planning appointment, the surgeon will discuss with the patients the procedures that can help them in achieving their goals. He offers specialized 3D computer imaging to provide patients with their before and after results. This is incredibly helpful in assisting patients in seeing the changes they can achieve with this or other surgical treatments available at the practice of Dr. Edmund Kwan.

How is this treatment completed?

The procedure performed will be determined greatly by the patient’s goals and desires. If an enhancement is desired, the area may be augmented with the use of facial implants. For patients who want a smoother appearance or a reduction, the procedure may require the shaving down of the natural bone to achieve results. The planning of the procedure is done with the patient to ensure both doctor and patient are on the same page as to the changes being made. The surgery is completed with sedation and anesthetic in a surgical operating room and may require transportation to and from the practice from a friend or relative. All patients leave our office with appropriate medications for pain and swelling and post-operative instructions to follow to reduce the risk of infection or complications.

What our patients say

J

I just looked in the mirror and I like what I see. I am a 55 year old male. I heard praise for Dr. Kwan from friends and went in for a consult. I like Kwan’s direct and informative approach. That was a Friday, I booked a lower facelift, upper lid and fat relocation to the cheeks for the following Thursday. All went really well. I was surprised how little bruising and discomfort I felt. I was prepared for more. So now about 10 weeks later, I must say, I look really great. The change is subtle, which is just what I wanted. I truly feel that a bit of time has been turned back. And that, is a Good Thing.
