I received ptosis surgery and could not be happier with the results. Dr. Kwan truly cares about his patients and delivers on his promise of high-quality surgery and treatment. The staff are capable and kind as well. I could not ask for a better overall experience.

Just went for a follow up visit. Staff always nice and welcoming. Dr. Kwan is a skilled surgeon who has a good eye for making you look natural. This is why I chose him to work on my face as I felt confident he would know just how to achieve a modest enhancement and not make me look so...Read More

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...Read More

Fran in Manhattan, NY – May 31, 2019


I’ve already recommended Dr. Kwan to three friends! He repaired a hernia + did a tummy tuck four years ago, with the faintest scar line and such smooth results. So I went back to him to have him transfer fat from my thighs and arms to my breasts. I love the results so far! His staff are lovely,...Read More

I am thrilled with Dr. Kwan’s surgical skills and the very natural results he provided for my recent breast augmentation.

It's very upsetting that I went to Dr Kwan for a jaw reduction to remove muscle from my face in hopes it would help my teeth grinding. I know that Dr Kwan is not a dental surgeon but he is did assure me that it would work. Not only do I still grind my teeth, I was left with scarring around my mouth...Read More

Dr. was very patient in trying to understand exactly what I'd had in mind and he does not pressure you to do anything you don't need. The results came out beautifully and looks natural. The anesthesiologist...Read More

When I consulted with Dr. Kwan about my both upper and lower eyelid lift surgery, he agreed exactly what I wanted. Thereafter, I trusted the doctor and had the surgery a little more than a month ago. The outcome of the surgery is much better than what I expected. Thank you, Dr.Kwan!!

I wanted of get rid of my cesarean/stretch marks, however, Dr. Kwan made the mark even larger and darker. Dr. Kwan told me to wait for several months for the healing process, but the marks only became more prominent. He then told me that I will have to do the procedure once more and told me to pay...Read More
