SINGAPORE, September 2022 — Amaris B. Clinic was conferred the "Body Sculpting Medical Centre of the Year in Asia Pacific 2022" award at the GlobalHealth Asia-Pacific Healthcare and Hospital Awards (2022) and the third edition of GlobalHealth Asia-Pacific Specialist Clinic and Medical Centre Awards (2022). The prestigious event was held in Bangkok, Thailand on the 7th and 8th August 2022. The clinic's achievement was its fourth in successive years and exemplifies its commitment and dedication to patient care, service and results.
The award recognises excellence among medical care providers in the Asia Pacific region; nominees were ascertained based on consumer votes, market research reports, industry experts' opinions, and GlobalHealth Asia Pacific's healthcare knowledge. A panel of esteemed jurors then decided the winners under strict and unbiased protocol and etiquette.
Amaris B. Clinic has been providing quality medical aesthetics and surgical body sculpting treatments since its establishment in 2004. Led by Dr Ivan Puah, an MOH accredited liposuction doctor and Chairman of Lipo Peer Review Committee in Singapore, the clinic continues to uphold excellence in patient care and experience today.
Dr Ivan Puah, Medical Director at Amaris B. Clinic, has been performing liposuction, corrective lipo, and gynecomastia surgery for over 15 years. This experience and knowledge led Dr Puah to develop the MDC-Sculpt®️Lipo technique successfully.
MDC stands for Multi-Dimensional Contouring. It effectively removes fat cells and therefore limits the future deposition of fat in the treated area. This proprietary approach's objectives are three-pronged; fat removal, precise body sculpting and skin tightening. These provide the impetus for successful and optimal contouring results.
Dr Ivan Puah advocates that body sculpting surgeries are 70 percent art and 30 percent science. The MDC-Sculpt®️Lipo technique allows for better efficacy and comprehensive fat removal. With his knowledge of aesthetics, Dr Puah can remove fat and sculpt a physique with natural-looking results via this technique. According to Dr Puah, the common areas of patient complaints include the face, armpits, back, abdomen, flanks, hips, thighs, pseudogynecomastia, knees and calves.
Dr Ivan Puah understands that no two physiques are alike; hence, there is no one-fits-all solution. The MDC-Sculpt®️Lipo technique enables him to be strategically precise in his approach to treating issues and delivering desirable results catered to individual needs. The MDC-Sculpt®️Lipo technique, compared to traditional liposuction, improves skin elasticity and keeps scarring to a minimum. It is gentler and less traumatising, resulting in faster recovery with lesser bruising and discomfort.
Botched liposuction resulting in physical damage can lead to anxiety and depression. Dr Ivan Puah, with his extensive experience in corrective liposuction surgeries, reminds his patients that while some areas can be corrected, sites with more severe complications can only be partially improved at best. This helps a patient to be mentally prepared and is in line with the clinic's principle that a patient's wellbeing is always of utmost concern.
Dr Ivan Puah has also noticed a rise in patients suffering from paradoxical adipose hyperplasia (PAH), a rare but permanent side effect of fat freezing. He uses the MDC-Sculpt®️ Lipo technique to address the issues brought upon by PAH.
Since its inception in 2004, Amaris B. Clinic has treated patients from Singapore, the Asia Pacific, and worldwide. The clinic is the go-to destination for people keen on facial and body sculpting procedures such as VASER, VASER Hi-Def Lipo, SmartLipo, liposuction, fat grafting, corrective lipo procedures and gynecomastia surgery.
At Amaris B. Clinic, body contouring and fat-removal surgical procedures are carried out in a MOH-accredited Operating Theatre. The Operating Theatre is equipped with modern surgical equipment, European monitoring systems, private suites, and 12-bed recovery units. This high standard is maintained with a yearly audit.
Experienced and qualified medical personnel, led by Dr Ivan Puah, are always at hand to ensure that a patient's wellbeing is taken care of when they step into the clinic. This diligence is extended to post-operative care, guiding them throughout the healing process.
Integrity, ethics, transparency, and commitment are high on the clinic's list of beliefs. Dr Ivan Puah and his team know how to manage realistic expectations and not overpromise or underdeliver results. This has been the critical factor in earning patients' trust, something the clinic has been successfully doing since 2004.
