SWENG Plastic and Cosmetic Surgery in Singapore
Sweng Plastic Aesthetic and Reconstructive surgery is among the top plastic surgery clinics in Singapore.
Our consultant plastic surgeon, Dr Ng Siew Weng is one of the top plastic surgeons in Singapore. Dr Ng is a Consultant Plastic & Reconstructive Surgeon accredited by the Ministry of Health in Singapore. He graduated from the Medical Faculty of the National University of Singapore and pursued several Post Graduate Diploma programs, two of which were in Dermatology.
Dr Ng Siew Weng completed his Advanced Surgical Training in Plastic Surgery at the Department of Plastic Reconstructive and Aesthetic Surgery at the Singapore General Hospital (SGH).
He was the first plastic surgeon from Singapore General Hospital (SGH) to have undergone a one year intensive training in the field of Plastic Surgery in South Korea under the Ministry of Health’s Human Manpower Development Programme Scholarship (HMDP). Dr Ng has chosen his further training in South Korea because its plastic surgery procedures are developed for Asian features.
During his intense training in South Korea, Dr Ng worked with world-renowned top Plastic Surgeons. His surgical techniques have a strong Korean influence especially in popular procedures like rhinoplasty, breast augmentation, blepharoplasty (double eyelid surgery), eyebag removal, droopy eyelid (Ptosis) correction, facelift and fat grafting. These surgical procedures can be done in the privacy of our clinic.
During his attachment at the Hand Surgery Department in SGH, he received rigorous microsurgery training which is invaluable for honing his superb face and breast reconstruction techniques.
Our Clinic is amongst the best plastic surgery clinics in Singapore offering a fully equipped, Ministry of Health accredited Ambulatory Surgical Centre as well as the state of the art health care facilities to ensure that our patients receive the best cosmetic surgery experience in Singapore in a safe and comfortable environment.
Our main clinic is located at Farrer Park Medical Centre, Connexion – a three-in-one medical tourism friendly complex that comprises of Farrer Park Medical Centre, Farrer Park Hospital and One Farrer Hotel and Spa. A first of its kind in Asia, patients have the option of recovering in the comfort of a 5-star hotel or hospital after surgery. Our team would be glad to arrange concierge service and hotel stay is required. To serve our patients better, we have a branch in Gleneagles Medical Centre.
Dr Ng’s maxim “there is no shortcut to perfection” is key in achieving the harmonized look. He explained that, “To achieve a harmonious appearance, a combination of procedures may need to be done simultaneously to address various features of the patient.”
A nose job (rhinoplasty) which improves the nose shape, projection and length may emphasize a pre-existing small chin. To achieve a harmonious look, Dr Ng would suggest a procedure to improve the chin projection to match the nose.
Some patients only focus on correcting the features they are most dissatisfied with; not realizing that any minor changes of a particular feature may affect adjacent features.
The ageing process affects all the facial features. Patients with eyebag problems often have ageing upper eyelid too. Removing the eyebags without addressing the ageing upper eyelids would result in an incongruous appearance. Dr Ng would hence advise both upper and lower eyelid surgery to achieve a synchronized and harmonized result.
Dr Ng believes that most patients want to retain some semblance of their original appearance. He will strive to enhance what they already have rather than change their identity unless it is their intention.
Achievements and Humanitarian Work
Dr Ng had been active in the training of doctors and residents while he was Visiting Consultant at the Singapore General Hosipital (SGH). He was also an Adjunct Assistant Professor at the Duke-NUS Graduate Medical School. He hopes that training and knowledge sharing would produce the best plastic surgeons in Singapore.
Dr Ng Siew Weng is active in the field of research, as reflected by the numbers of research papers he published, and the many invitations he received to present at medical conferences in North America, Europe and Asia including Singapore. During his attachment at the Hand Surgery Department in SGH, he received a prestgious Economic Development Board proof of concept grant to investigate the treatment of trigger finger and subsequently invented a novel treatment device which is patented. Dr Ng also demonstrated that stem cells derived from autologous adipose tissue improved the rate of wound healing.
Dr Ng’s research interest in fat stem cells is extended to his excellent fat grafting skills. He uses fat grafting regularly in his surgery to achieve natural cosmetic enhancement such as fat gratfing to breast and fat grafting to face. In fact, he organised a fat grafting workshop at SGH so that local surgeons had the opportunities to learn the best fat grafting techniques from him and a top Korean surgeon.
Despite Dr Ng’s hectic schedules, he volunteered regularly in humanitarian trips to perform free surgeries to correct cleft lip and/or palate, post-traumatic or burns deformities in Laos, Indonesia, China and Uzbekistan.
