DEVELOPING MODERN SURGICAL TECHNIQUE
Being the forerunner in offering SmartLipo, fat grafting, VASER Lipo and gynecomastia surgery in Singapore has enabled Dr. Ivan Puah to accumulate vast surgical experiences. Dr Puah has dedicated more than 15 years of his time consistently refining his skills in the fields of breasts, body and facial cosmetic surgery and developing modern surgical techniques to constantly improve his results for patients.
A key method he developed to reduce the invasiveness and to improve the cosmetic outcome for his gynecomastia surgery patients is the 360° Glandular Tissue Dissection (360°GTD®) technique. With this technique, haematoma occurrence and scarring are reduced to the minimum.
Dr Ivan Puah has also developed his own body sculpting approach, known as MDC-Sculpt® lipo technique that will constitute a more desirable cosmetic outcome as fat removal is thorough on the treated area, scarring is reduced to the minimal, with minimal post-op bruising and lastly, precise sculpting is achieved.
No one individual is the same and no one body is similar to another. Each patient is unique and so are his/her preference, needs and wants.
