    Dr. Kwan is a kind and compassionate doctor with great bedside manners. There is zero wait time with appointments. The skin graft he did with me was amazing. Staff are friendly. His offices are beautiful. I would strongly recommend Dr. Kwan for any of your reconstructive concerns.

    I have known and trusted Dr. Kwan professionally for many years, and now recently as a patient. We chose him to remove a complicated growth on a very delicate area of my daughter’s eyelid, and his work was impeccable. Dr. Kwan was thorough in his explanations, recovery was prompt, and the outcome was excellent. His offices and operating room are pristine, and the staff at both Manhattan and NJ offices are professional and kind. His anesthesiologist put my daughter at ease and assured that she never felt pain.

    Dr. Kwan treats each individual with thoughtfulness, honesty, and precision. His extensive operative experience and credentials should give anyone full confidence that he will provide a beautiful outcome. I have personally seen other examples of his work, and all have been delighted with their results. I fully entrust Dr. Kwan with any plastic surgery needs and continue to recommend him highly to my family, friends, and patients. He is a gifted surgeon and a wonderful person. We are so grateful!

    I am an Attending Physician and Assistant Professor of Clinical Rehabilitation Medicine with Weill Cornell Medical College.

    I am honored to write a professional endorsement of Dr. Edmund Kwan (whom I have known since his surgery training days at St. Vincent’s Hospital and Medical Center).

    In my opinion, Dr. Kwan is the ultimate doctor’s doctor. He is (and has always been) compassionate, smart, skilled and a wonderful altruistic human being. I know firsthand his fine skills, his attention to detail, his aesthetic/artistic sensibility and his utmost professionalism. He was known to the ER staff at St. Vincent’s as someone who always came when called, even if he had left the hospital. He was always available and unselfishly gave time, expertise (gratis) to the indigent, poor and uninsured. I have referred patients as well as my friends. All have been delighted with their results!

    Dr. Kwan participates in medical missions to third world countries yearly, also donating his time, skills and money. My respect and admiration is endless.

    Dr Kwan is simply the best! My father was in the eye with a golf ball at 87 years old. He had extensive bone fractures surrounding the eye. Other doctors failed to tell us the extent of the damage , or declined to operate. Dr Kwan took care of my dad without hesitation and Dad is doing great. Dr Kwan had my highest recommendation possible and please don’t hesitate to refer and facial trauma cases to him !!!

    Dr. Kwan is an outstanding plastic surgeon whose talent is beyond compare. He is everything I was looking for in my long search for a surgeon I could trust my face and body with. My results are natural and I look 15 years younger than my age. After seeing my results four of my friends chose Dr Kwan to perform their surgeries.

    Dr. Kwan is a perfectionist in every way. His offices are beautiful, his staff is amazing and caring and he is absolutely gifted in his talents. I truly cannot thank Dr. Kwan enough.

    I went to Dr. Kwan to remove several basal-cell carcinoma lesions; one was 2 inches in diameter and deep in my back and two smaller ones. Dr. Kwan explained the procedure. He was going to take skin from my groin area to graft the large lesion on my back.

    The following week l arrived at his exquisite private office on 5th avenue across from the Met. Discreetly, the front door is on 5th Ave and is a quick entry/exit to the street. Upon entering his elegant office, l met Dr Kwan’s kind and gracious staff that made me feel at home. Classical music in the state of the art operating room soothed my nerves and l was very peaceful leading into the surgery.

    It has been two weeks and my recovery has truly been amazing. The first two days l was in pain but it was manageable. Within two days l was feeling great and back to work. Dr. Kwan and Rebecca check in on me during the first week and six days later l went to the Fort Lee office to confirm that the skin graft took 100%. I am now cancer-free and my scars are healing beautifully.

    Thank you, Dr. Kwan. Your expertise, perfection and vision transformed me. I feel healthy again and so grateful to you and your remarkable team.

    I could not have had a better experience going to Dr. Kwan. While I had been told that he is the best of the best, I couldn't help but be a little nervous at first. This being said, Dr. Kwan made me feel extremely comfortable and didn't pressure me into anything. He listened clearly to what I wanted done and understood my fears of surgery. He explained the whole process to me and didn't try to sell me on anything, yet added his professional input including parts about my face that I didn't even think about. Furthermore, his entire team is kind and creates a relaxing environment inside the beautiful office across from The Met. Post-recovery, Rebecca is there to answer any questions you have via phone and walk you through the recovery process. Dr. Kwan is extremely generous with his checkups, and will have you go back several times to make sure you are recovering properly. I had rhinoplasty, septoplasty, and a chin implant done, and I can assure you that if I ever were to get cosmetic surgery again, I would only go to Dr. Kwan. He is so great that I have already sent two friends to him and will be sending more to come. Thank you Dr. Kwan and team for an incredible experience!

    I came to see Dr Kwan after 2 years of research as I needed a complete rhinoplastic reconstruction from an accident that I had at the age of 5 years old (I am now 60). He was recommended by two friends who had work done (which was so good that I would never have known had they not told me).

    My initial meeting was excellent. Dr Kwan spent a lot of time with me and told me exactly what needed to be done. he also advised me that the recovery would be long (at least 10 months) and that I would not know exactly how the nose would look until that amount of time. The doctor told me also that he would not drastically alter my appearance but give me "my nose" only slightly more refined. This was exactly what I wanted to hear as I am a very tall male and did not want a nose too small or too delicate looking.

    I scheduled the surgery and my experience was also excellent. I had practically no pain and no bleeding after the surgery. Instructions on proper care before and after surgery were provided. A staff member called me the next day to make sure that all was ok. I also saw the doctor 36 hours after the surgery and then again one week after the surgery and many times after for constant check ups.

    I will say that I noticed (with myself and other patients) that the doctor and his staff are very nice and efficient but they do not fuss over or coddle their patients (which might explain some negative reviews). I found their behavior quite exemplary and professional throughout.

    The doctor and staff were attentive and kind at all times. This was a particularly stressful surgery since it involved a former accident and the doctor explained to me in advance that the body has "memory" and that I might feel excessively fatigued or upset. He counseled me to get a lot of rest and to avoid all stress. This advice was very much appreciated.

    After the surgery I could breathe correctly for the first time in my life. The constant sinus pressure that I could feel every time I would lower my head or bend over was completely gone. I also sleep more soundly without waking up as often.

    At about the 10 month mark, the doctor told me that there were a few things that needed correcting.
    • There was a small cartilage nodule on one side of my nose that needed to be scraped off.
    • Stitches needed to be redone at the end part of my nose (for purely cosmetic reasons) because I had healed very quickly and the original stitches had disintegrated too soon.
    • One side of my nose at the nostril area had not healed the same way as the other and needed to be fixed.

    All three of these things were corrected during another procedure (requiring full anesthesia) at no cost to me.

    To say that I happy with the results is truly an understatement. Please keep in mind that I also have some deformities (on the nostril area) and scars from the childhood accident that Dr Kwan had to contend with. These problems are now almost imperceptible. To me there is a 300% difference. I really never expected such great results and I am extremely happy and will be forever grateful to Dr. Kwan and his staff (Including the anesthesiologist!).

    I have already recommended him to several people and will continue to do so. I do not understand the negative reviews as my experience was completely positive. I also have spoken to many other patients in the waiting room over the months and moths of return visits and every single one of them has the highest regard for Dr. Kwan and his team.

    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.

    I met Dr. Edmund Kwan last year and did my liposuction. It was my first cosmetic so I was nervous and did many researches to decide to work with Dr. Kwan. He is very nice and gentle, professional of course. I went to the consulting and then we went through the details carefully. He did a great job and I'm highly satisfied with the result. Sometimes it is hard to make a decision to choose a doctor to do the very first cosmetic. But I'm glad that I made a right choice. By the way, the office is nice and clean, and staffs are friendly.

    Having been referred by a good friend for eyelid surgery and liposuction to Dr. Kwan is one of the highest benefits of good friendships. Surgery is, indeed one of the most intimate relationships one can engage in with any professional practitioner. It is my great satisfaction to discover all of the most revered qualities of competent medical expertise, combined with thoroughly masterful procedure and post-operative attention in my recent work with Dr. Kwan. In addition, I must add that his compassionate, gentle demeanor instills great trust which is a most important element in the healing process. I am beyond thrilled with my results, and have referred a few friends who are equally happy with theirs.

    I had a reconstructive open nose surgery and ten days later scars are nowhere to be seen. If I had not seen the threads I would not have believed it was an open surgery. I am very happy with the outcome. He did exactly what I had asked and even better! Dr Kwan is not talkative, but I was looking for a doctor who I can trust and not someone who promises the mountains and delivers nothing - as it had happened with another doctor in the past. I had good feelings for Dr. Kwan and I am glad I was right about him.

    Dr. Kwan is not only a skilled surgeon, but he has an artist's eye when it comes to proportion and balance which gave me an absolutely natural result. Nobody commented on my eyes looking any different. They just noticed that I looked "great," more youthful, brighter and rested, which is exactly the kind of subtle result I had hoped for.

    Although he is not the most friendly or approachable doctor, he did a great job with my surgery and he is VERY experienced in his field. And for someone who works in the UES of Manhattan, his prices are EXCELLENT. At least $1,000 less than most doctors in Manhattan. He also gives free consultations which are a plus.

    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.

    I had a car accident that left me with a broken cheek, broken nose and 4 noticeable scars on my face. For a year I thought my life was ruined, until I met Dr Kwan. He made recommendations that I followed and 2 surgeries later, I am back to my old self again. He gave me my confidence back to live a normal life again and I cannot thank him and his team enough for their expertise. I highly recommend Dr Kwan to anyone who cares highly for quality results.

    Dr. Kwan is not only an extremely gifted and talented surgeon, he's also very compassionate and caring. His staff is also exemplary.

    Dr. Kwan performed a breast implant surgery on me and I could not be happier. He took all of my concerns and determined the perfect size for me. He is extremely professional and very understanding of what a patient needs in everyday life. Because he performs the surgery in his office, which has an operating room, it is very convenient, time-saving and does not have the coldness or intimidation of a hospital setting. His staff is kind, compassionate and goes beyond their duty to make the experience pleasant and comfortable. I felt like a princess when I woke up from the surgery. It was almost painless with very little discomfort after the procedure. The best part of all was that Dr. Kwan was there during recovery and didn't leave my side until I walked out of the office, with no help! The whole experience was better than I could have anticipated. Dr. Kwan takes his professionalism and remarkable surgical ability and adds sincere care to give you what you want. The surgery changed my life and has given me confidence. I am thankful all the time for the implants; they look natural and make me feel great about myself!

    I highly recommend Dr. Kwan and I believe his rates are reasonable for Manhattan. He did my rhinoplasty in 2004 - there was virtually no pain and swelling and the recovery was quick. No one has been able to tell that I got a rhinoplasty after all these years. If I were to have another cosmetic procedure, I would go back to Dr. Kwan for it.

    I had abdomen liposuction and breast augmentation surgery done with Dr. Kwan. The whole surgery process was wonderful. Dr. Kwan and the staff was very accommodating and helpful, I felt very cared for and at ease. I cannot thank everyone enough.

    I wasn't sure what size of breast implant I wanted in the beginning, however, Dr. Kwan gave me very professional insight and suggestion of implant size that fits my body type as well as looks natural on my body, but at the same time big enough size that I wanted. I am very satisfied with the look and the size of my breast!! I couldn’t be happier with the results and the results gave me tremendous amount of self-confidence. Now, I can wear clothes that I could never wear before. :)

    Dr. Kwan is indeed an experienced, skilled, professional doctor with a lot of compassion for the patients. I am very happy and satisfied with the results and the whole experience. Moreover, the best thing about Dr. Kwan is he looks at everyone’s individual body type and do the surgery that fits that individual which results in a very natural look after the surgery.

    Dr. Kwan and everyone in the staff, I cannot thank you enough. Every time I look in the mirror, I smile. Now, I feel like I am in my 20s again. Thank you, Dr. Kwan!!
