Unlike Caucasian rhinoplasty, which mostly focuses on reducing the size of the nose, Asian rhinoplasty may demand that the nasal structure be augmented or reinforced for a more defined profile. This ethnic rhinoplasty procedure requires a subtle and nuanced approach in which the nasal structure is delicately balanced with the other features for a harmonious overall aesthetic. With a double board certification in both plastic surgery and ear, nose and throat medicine, Dr. Kwak has an unrivaled command of both the functional and cosmetic aspects of rhinoplasty, and can produce stunning results for the Asian face that elude most of his peers. If you are looking to achieve natural results that are in line with your ethnic background, look to Dr. Kwak for some of the best asian rhinoplasty NYC patients can rely on.

Asian eyelid surgery
Asian eyelid surgery is extremely common among Asian clients wishing to achieve natural improvements without sacrificing cultural identity.
Dr. Kwak performs a number of variations on Asian double eyelid surgery, including revision blepharoplasty to correct flaws resulting from prior subpar procedures; Asian ptosis surgery, to adjust drooping eyelids; and epicanthoplasty, a surgery performed to reposition and realign the mid portion of the eyelid. In all cases, he is meticulously careful to minimize scarring and operate in the least invasive manner possible.

Asian ptosis surgery
Ptosis is defined as a droopy upper eyelid. It’s a very common condition among Asian individuals, and can be present at birth or acquired later in life due to muscle laxity or certain medical conditions that affect the eyelids and eye muscles. Ptosis results in eyes that appear droopy, misshapen and asymmetrical, which can lead to low self-esteem and self-consciousness about your looks. Fortunately for many of our clients, ptosis doesn’t have to be permanent. A specialized surgery with Dr. Kwak has the potential to fix the condition, creating a more open and balanced expression.
