I will recommend Dr. Kwak to anyone who will like to get something done or fix, he is by far the best surgeon I have met.

Asian Revision Rhinoplasty. New York, NY

I had a horrible nose job in Korea 5 years ago and have been searching for a surgeon good enough to fix my horrible nose job. I'm so glad I found Dr Kwak. Everything was very clearly explained. He did an incredible job I only wish I went to him the first time. Very happy with my new nose!

Rhinoplasty Went Great - Manhattan, NY

Even my mother is impressed with the procedure. I've done plenty of research with clinics, mostly clinics located in South Korea because they are quite specialized in dealing with asian patients that want to undergo Rhinoplasty and other procedures. However, I didn't want to go through the hassle of flying out, getting a hotel for some time, etc etc. I did some more research online to find a surgeon here in NYC and found some positive reviews about Dr. Kwak. So I went for a consultation and the assistance was great. Dr. Kwak listens to you, and definitely communicates very well. I would definitely go back to Dr. Kwak for any other procedure and I would highly recommend him as a surgeon.

Best Doctors Experience - New York, NY

I am 9 months out after my rhinoplasty with Dr Kwak and I am so happy with my new nose. Dr Kwak was very patient with me with all of my office visits and answered all of my questions. My nose looks even better than the preop computer generated photo!

Incredible Doctor. No Downtime, Pretty Painless - Manhattan, NY

He is the most professional, talented plastic surgeon I have ever met. I found his practice online. I've been going to Dr. Kwak for the past 3 years. He somehow makes me look better and better every time. He is patient, professional, honest, and I swear he has magic in his hands. He knows exactly what to recommend and always makes me look years younger without looking like I had work done. I see him regularly for botox and filler injections and am always 150% pleased with my results. I know there are many doctors out there who perform these types of procedures, but with Dr. Kwak I have never been deceived nor unhappy with any of my results.

Edward Kwak - Rhinoplasty Consult - New York, NY

Hi RealSelf, I am considering going with Edward Kwak for a rhinoplasty. i have met with him twice and he is excellent. He is extremely nice and took a lot of time with me to explain how the procedure will improve my looks. He clearly has a deep understanding of the nose and the procedure and I am confident that he will do an excellent job, but I'd just like to hear from the RealSelf community...

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...
