In 1996, Kwan began to develop a more artistic and mature style. She improved her techniques and began to perform more difficult choreography. That year, Kwan won both United States and World Championships. The following year, Kwan struggled with her jumps due to a growth spurt and new skating boots from an endorsement contract. These difficulties led her to the loss of the 1997 U.S. Nationals and she got 4th place in the World Championships. In the 1998 National Championships, Kwan regained the U.S. title and qualified for the 1998 Olympic Games in Nagano, Japan. She was the top favorite to win the gold medal but ended up winning silver.

However, in February 2006, Kwan suffered a groin injury and withdrew from the Olympic team. She underwent surgery to repair her hip and skipped the season. Her first on-ice appearance after surgery was in 2009 when she performed at Ice All-Stars. She also announced that she would be a commentator in the 2010 Winter Olympics for ABC News.
