I am a MOH-accredited plastic surgeon who specialises in aesthetic and reconstructive microsurgery. Besides being the current President of theSingapore Association of Plastic Surgeons, I also serve as the Vice-Chairman of the Chapter of Plastic Surgeons Academy of Medicine, Singapore. My practise centres around the principles of providing my patients with procedures specially tailored to the individual, to deliver improved but naturally beautiful results that enhance and complement the individuals features.
I am one of the few surgeons to combine the intricate skills of microsurgery with aesthetic surgery, and I specialise in surgery of the Asian face, particularly Asian eyelid surgery and rhinoplasty. I also have interests in mummy makeovers, breast augmentation, body contouring and liposuction. I also maintain my practise in reconstructive microsurgery, focusing on breast reconstruction, complex head and neck reconstruction, and lower limb salvage.
After graduating from the Yong Loo Lin School of Medicine, National University of Singapore, I went on to complete my special training in General Surgery, eventually obtaining a Masters of Medicine in General Surgery. Through my keen aesthetic eye, and artistic and technical expertise, I was selected into the Department of Plastic Surgery at Singapore General Hospital (SGH), Singapore’s oldest and largest hospital, where I continue to serve as a visiting consultant.
To further develop my own specially curated technique, I have also completed numerous observerships with renowned plastic surgeons in the United States, Europe, Australia and Asia. A firm believer in constant self-improvement, I also went on to do a fellowship at the prestigious Asan Medical Centre in Seoul, South Korea. It was during my stint here where I had the opportunity to meet and learn from some of the top cosmetic and reconstructive surgeons in Korea, where I continue to work closely with them, returning annually to give talks at their international conferences.
As a Consultant Plastic Surgeon in the Department of Plastic Surgery at SGH, I also served as core faculty in the Plastic Surgery Residency Program and hold the appointment of Adjunct Assistant Professor at the Duke-NUS Graduate School of Medicines. Passionate about academia and research, I have published more than 30 articles in international plastic surgery journals, and also contributed to several textbooks in plastic surgery. I have also spoken at numerous regional and international conferences in the United States, Europe and Asia.
Regardless of whether a patient is recovering from an illness, accident or simply wants a boost to help them feel better about their bodies, knowing that I am helping to improve the quality of their lives is what drives my passion. Through personalised comprehensive consultation in a private space, paired with my approachable personality, and meticulous attention to detail, I utilise holistic approaches to provide my patients with the best care that is individually tailored, to achieve naturally beautiful results with minimal downtime.

Doctor, I have a crooked nose and am planning to do rhinoplasty. But I have sinusitis and haven’t had treatment for that. Would a rhinoplasty affect my sinusitis?
Is liposuction safe for patients who are taking diabetes medication? What else should one prepare for (medical/health-wise) before undergoing this procedure?
I am considering a breast reduction surgery but have read online that if the areola is not kept in place, breastfeeding might be an issue in the future if I choose to have children. Is that true?
I want to correct my asymmetrical lips, but I heard that you can’t do that if you have an existing allergy. My skin, especially my lips, is sensitive to weather changes. In extreme cases, my lips will swell and turn red. Can I still go ahead with the lip correction procedure?
Hi doctor. I experienced a burning accident in the middle of last year and as a result I have scars all along my right arm. The skin peeled off and turned whitish. Also, the area is now numb. Can plastic surgery bring back not only the original appearance of my skin but also treat the numbness I am experiencing?
It’s been close to a year since my caesarean. The skin on my tummy is wrinkly and still very loose. Can plastic surgery help revert it to its original condition? Are there any side effects I should think about?

I used to have a big benign tumor on my forehead. It was removed several years ago. However, because of the surgery, my forehead is now sunken and wrinkly. Can plastic surgery help to get it back to normal?
There is a mole on my shoulder. It started out as an ordinary mole, but as time went by, it seems like it’s now grown into a small lump with a scaly texture. Do I see a plastic surgeon to remove it or should I see a dermatologist?
