Dr. Edward Kwak is the best rhinoplasty and facelift surgeon. With my complicated septum issue, many doctors didn't want to take my case. One of the surgeons that I had a consultation recommend him that he will be the only one rhinoplasty surgeon for the complicated case. He was rigtht! He fixed my septum issue and made my nose beautiful! Thank you Dr. Kwak

I have needed Dr. Kwak twice, once to repair my upper lip area and once to repair the area above my eyebrow. Both instances were due to mohs surgery. Dr. Kwak did an amazing job in repairing both areas. He is highly talented, caring, conscientious and accessible. His office and staff could not be better, everyone is just a pleasure to deal with!

I went to see the doctor for an otoplasty. It failed 3 times. Dr. Kwak actually had me scheduled for 4th attempt and I showed up at the appt and declined and just had the old stitches removed because they were irritating my skin. He said I was an anomaly. If I was an anomaly, he should've done his research by the second failed attempt to figure out another approach to make it successful an otoplasty, and not do the same procedure THREE times and attempt the fourth saying it'll hold by the fourth attempt. I never went back despite him saying I should come back when I had time for him to stitch my ear for the 4th time. I just wasted my hard earned money.

I got double eyelid surgery with Dr. Kwak. His staff is absolutely amazing in that they will try to ensure that you are completely prepared before the surgery. Also, I was glad to see that they also saw to it that I had enough time to consult with Dr. Kwak and acknowledge all of my concerns and needs for this surgery. My eyes came out even better than I could have wanted and I have Dr. Kwak to thank. His staff were very nice and welcoming, making the visit very pleasant as well. The recovery time has been surprisingly fast, which is likely due to the specific follow up post-operative instructions that they gave me. Could not recommend this place more, especially for double eyelid surgery!

Dr. Kwak is an amazing surgeon. I completely trusted his vision. What sold me first was how patient he was at my consultation. I came in with many questions and concerns and not once did I feel rushed. His staff is equally as amazing and kind! I highly recommend Dr. Kawak.

Very knowledgeable. I have been contemplating septal repair surgery for over a decade. Met 4 doctors who wouldn’t consider it. One that claimed he could in 2007 but then mismanaged information to lose my trust. (He forgot about the septal repair and only gave me an estimate for rhinoplasty). Dr. Kwak answered all my questions correctly. I have been researching and rehearsing then for over a decade and already knew the answers and caveats. If I pull the trigger on the surgery, it will be w/ him.

Just got my revision epicanthoplasty done within 2 weeks and I am still in the healing phase, but I am satisfied with the result so far. Hope they will become more proportional and natural in time. Wonderful team and wonderful experience. Thank you, Dr. Kwak.

Dr. Kwak is personable, warm and talented. His entire office staff is also warm and attentive and they ensure that you’re at ease and well taken care of, from the moment you walk in. I went to Dr. Kwak for rhinoplasty+ septoplasty. I’m still healing but I can already tell that once the swelling is gone, I’ll finally be able to breathe !! I already can see a noticeable difference which is exciting for me. As for the non functional procedure... I LOVE it!

Dr Kwak is a good man and a great surgeon. I have known him now for a few years, and I couldn’t be happier with what he’s done for me. He has an eye for what is suitable and attractive for the individual. It isn’t a one-size-fits-all kind of aesthetic. I recommended a friend to him, and she as well had a great experience. His staff are also the best- very attentive and personable! Highly recommended!!
