Dr Ng Siew Weng is a Consultant Plastic &Reconstructive Surgeon accredited by the Ministry of Health of 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.

He completed his Advanced Surgical Training in Plastic Surgery at the Department of Plastic Reconstructive and Aesthetic Surgery at the Singapore General Hospital.

Thereafter, he was awarded the Human Manpower Development Programme Scholarship (HMDP) by the Ministry of Health. He was the first plastic surgeon from the Singapore General Hospital to undergo one-year intensive training in Plastic Surgery in South Korea under this scheme. He had numerous opportunities to work with world-renowned top Plastic Surgeons in Korea during this one-year fellowship program. His surgical techniques have a strong Korean influence especially in blepharoplasty, rhinoplasty, facelift and breast augmentation.

Dr Ng was an Adjunct Assistant Professor with the Duke-NUS Graduate Medical School. Dr Ng is involved in the training of doctors and residents as a Visiting Consultant at the Singapore General Hospital (SGH).

He published many research papers and was invited to present on various surgical topics in North America, Europe and many parts of Asia.

Dr Ng was the organiser of a grafting workshop at SGH during which local surgeons had the opportunity to learn techniques of fat grafting from him and a renowned Korean expert.

In the field of research, Dr Ng is also active in the investigation of the effect of stem cells derived from autologous adipose tissue on the rate of wound healing. During his attachment to the Hand Surgery Department, he obtained a government-funded grant to investigate the treatment of trigger finger. This led him to invent a novel patented device to treat this condition.

Dr Ng participated actively in humanitarian trips where he performed free surgeries to correct cleft lip and/or palate, and post traumatic or burns deformities. The countries he had visited include Laos, China, Indonesia and Uzbekistan.
