I am a MOH-accredited consultant plastic surgeon who specialises in aesthetic breast, face and body contouring procedures and reconstructive microsurgery. My guiding philosophy is to provide my patients with treatments specifically designed for them, to harmonise their features to give a natural, refined beauty without the telltale signs of plastic surgery.
I specialise in cosmetic and reconstructive surgery of the breasts, rhinoplasty and scarless facelifting techniques. I have a keen interest in body contouring, liposuction and fat grafting, which I commonly use for breast augmentation and breast reconstruction.
Born and raised in Australia, I graduated from the University of Melbourne in 2001. After completing my internship in Melbourne, I moved to Singapore to further my surgical training which took me through rotations in General Surgery, Paediatric Surgery, Orthopaedic Surgery, Urology, Plastic Surgery, Neurosurgery, and Ear, Nose and Throat Surgery. Being exposed to so many surgical specialties not only provided excellent training but also helped me to discover where my passion, talents and aesthetic eye could be fully utilised .
In 2006, I was appointed as a Member of the Royal College of Surgeons of Edinburgh, UK, and obtained a Masters of Medicine in General Surgery from NUS soon after. In recognition of my talent in the field of plastic surgery, I was admitted into the training program at Singapore General Hospital despite stiff competition from the many other applicants. After completing my training in plastic surgery in 2012, I was subsequently appointed as a Fellow of the Academy of Medicine, Singapore (Plastic Surgery). To further develop my techniques in facial surgery, I was awarded a Health Manpower Development Plan (HMDP) fellowship in Facial Plastic and Reconstructive Surgery in Hannover, Germany and Stuttgart, Germany where I was trained in craniomaxillofacial trauma and advanced rhinoplasty techniques. I continue to maintain contact with my colleagues at Singapore General Hospital as a visiting consultant, often volunteering my expertise for complex breast reconstruction and and facial trauma procedures.
I continue to educate myself on the latest techniques at numerous preceptorships with renowned plastic surgeons in Korea, Europe, US and Australia as well as attending various conferences, courses and workshops. I have published more than a dozen articles in international plastic surgery journals and have spoken at numerous regional and international conferences.
I am driven by knowing what I do can truly help my patients improve their lives. Whoever you are, be it a CEO, celebrity, housewife, father, mother, son or daughter you will always be treated with the respect you deserve and receive my best attention and care. I am committed to giving my best to my patients by understanding their needs and wants and tailoring a solution that uses advanced, safe and effective techniques from all over the world to achieve optimal outcomes.

Hello, Dr Chui. My eldest son has burns on his right shoulder. He described the burnt area as feeling numb. We are considering plastic surgery to repair the skin, but are worried if there is possible nerve damage in that area. Should we see an orthopaedic doctor first to confirm the condition or is nerve examination also a part of plastic surgery if we go ahead with it?
I had rhinoplasty done two years ago. These two months I can feel there is a lump inside my nose. I am planning to go to an ENT to examine this. But what I want to know is, if it turns out I have to undergo surgery to remove the lump, would there be any issues with my current nose form?
I want to fix my chin. It is too long for my liking and I feel like I have an overbite. At the same time, I also want to consider liposuction of my chin so I can have a more defined jawline. Which one should I do first? Or can it be done at the same time?
