Dr. Ivan Puah

OUR DOCTOR

Dr. Ivan Puah is an ASEAN scholar, having graduated from NUS in 1997. Having undergone training in various surgical and medical disciplines, Dr. Puah has accumulated a comprehensive experience in surgery and clinical patient care.

Dr Ivan Puah and partner founded Amaris B. Clinic in 2004 on the belief that health is beauty and beauty is health. Since then, it has grown from a medical aesthetic clinic offering MOH-approved aesthetic and cosmetic surgery such as liposuction into a multi-disciplinary practice. Today, Amaris B. Clinic incorporates facial cosmetic injectables, pain management (occupational & sports), fitness assessment, weight loss management and injury rehabilitation into its services.

Never one to be  complacent, Dr Ivan Puah is always seeking and gaining more knowledge and has obtained Graduate Diplomas in various medical disciplines, namely Family Practice Dermatology, Acupuncture and Sports Medicine. He believes in equipping himself with more skills so as to better provide a standard of patient care beyond just medical beauty aesthetics.

DEDICATED TRAININGS IN VASER LIPO & GYNECOMASTIA SURGERY

Dr. Ivan Puah obtained his full VASER® Body Sculpting training (Fundamental & Advanced Training) in Colorado and Argentina under Dr Alfredo Hoyos and Dr John A.Millard. He is trained in SmartLipo (LaserLipolysis) in Italy and has received training in syringe liposculpture, fat grafting and thread lift by Dr. Pierre François Fournier. He is the only doctor to have received dedicated surgical training in gynecomastia surgery in San Francisco.  

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.

INDIVIDUALISED CARE

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. Dr Ivan Puah’s meticulous and personalised approach has helped ease and alleviate many patients' worries and concerns. Each advice and recommendation given is based on the individual’s goals without compromising their wellbeing.

“Integrity is what we do, what we say and what we say we do” is a quote by Don Galer that Dr. Ivan Puah holds on strongly to. For the past 16 years and counting, Amaris B. Clinic has actively contributed to various social causes locally such as The Children’s Society, Riding For the Disabled Association, and Helping Joy.  Internationally, we also provide health checks to the orphans and offer various types of aids to Wat Don Chan Orphanage in Chiangmai, Thailand.
