Dr Por Yong Chen
"There are always new possibilities for executing the surgery to achieve the best results possible. It keeps me interested in my work as the search for perfection is frequently elusive and transient. Nevertheless, this search is, in my mind, a worthwhile endeavour to pursue both for my patients and I."
For women and men seeking aesthetic or plastic surgery advice, the task of navigating through the extensive list of clinics with the hopes of finding a doctor who is highly-skilled, reputable and reliable all at once, can seem tiresome and daunting. This explains why Dr Por, a fully qualified plastic surgeon under the Singapore Medical Council, prides himself in having the integrity to recommend to patients only treatments and services that they really need. He also places great emphasis on responsibility, commitment and an unending pursuit for excellence, to provide his patients with the best medical advice and care.
Dr Por’s philosophy of taking a holistic approach in patient care means he does more than merely come up with an effective treatment plan. He focuses on an in-depth consultation, where he attentively listens as patients share about how their concerns are affecting them. On top of that, he also considers the patients’ expectations and preferences. His attention to detail also means he takes extra care when it comes to designing each patient’s customised treatment plan, choosing the safest surgery techniques in order to reduce the visibility of scarring, optimise a faster recovery process and to achieve the longest-lasting result possible.
To Dr Por, his patient-centric problem-solving approach helps fuel his passion, because to him, plastic surgery not only rewards him with satisfaction but it has the potential to bring his patients joy and happiness too. Thanks to constant breakthroughs in modern medicine, Dr Por believes that there are always new and better ways to carry out various procedures. And while the search for perfection is often elusive and transient, he remains driven by an unrelenting quest for excellence.
Dr Por has held prestigious positions, including Head of Department of Plastic, Reconstructive & Aesthetic Surgery at KK Women’s & Children’s Hospital, and won notable awards including the Owen Cole Young Investigator’s Award and Young Surgeon’s Award. He is also actively involved in mission trips and charity work organised by Smile Asia to treat children suffering from cleft lip and palate anomalies in Third World countries. In his free time, Dr Por also enjoys the art of photography, an intensely gratifying hobby which similar to plastic surgery, requires precision, an eye for detail and a sense of aesthetics to capture the beauty of that perfect moment.
