The Best Doctor- Manhattan, NY

Dr.Kwak is the best doctor I have ever had in my life. He is very caring and has great follow up. He suggest what he thinks is best and never pressures you to do anything extra.

Rhinoplasty Went Great - Manhattan, NY

 We did some digital imagery to see how the rhinoplasty procedure would look after. I went through it, and honestly, it wasn't painful at all. If anything, the first two nights after the surgery are the most uncomfortable and every single day after that was pretty relaxed. It's been 21 days since my surgery, and I look completely fine. My nose has healed tremendously. I don't have any...

Best Doctors Experience - New York, NY

I have always been bothered by my large nose. A friend of mine had referred my to Dr Kwak after having another procedure performed by him. My initial consultation with Dr Kwak was very pleasant. He spent quite a long time explaining what would be required for my nose and showed some changes on a photoshop program. I am 9 months out and my love my nose. Very happy with the over all experience.

45-year Old with a Deviated Septum and Droopy Right Side of the Face - New York

If I could give Dr. Kwak 10 stars, I would give him 20! I lived with a deviated septum for 45 years! The whole right side of my face and nose drooped downwards. Breathing was always difficult, and cosmetically, well, I just looked weird. Whatever. I lived with it. It wasn't until I had a sinus lift for an upper molar implant that I needed to fix the deviated septum, as breathing became even...

Rhinoplasty Revision - New York

He did really great job. It look really natural but still I can tell the changes. I don't really like to write review. But I am so satisfy with his work and his care, so I am writing this. At first, He really listened at consultation (some doctor are not really listening to what I say ) and answer all the question till I understand. He made me really comfortable for surgery. I think...
