Dr Alvin Wong
Private practice since setting up SKN MediAesthetics, one of the first aesthetics medical facilities in Singapore. His area of special interest lies in body sculpting procedures, in particular PowerAssisted Liposuction with High-Definition Laser, which he has performed over 300 successful treatments of. ''Becoming slimmer and shapelier is one of the things modern Singaporean women want,'' he says. PowerAssisted Liposuction uses a high-powered laser to melt fat before it is removed from the body. This treatment targets areas that women find difficult to lose bulk from. This includes the belly and side regions which often bulge when sitting down; thick thigh regions which look unflattering in shorter dresses; and flabby upper arm and back regions which can make strap-top wearers self conscious. Dr. Alvin graduated from the prestigious University College London before receiving his surgical training in London hospitals. He has a Graduate Diploma in Dermatology and has also spent time in New York attached to the plastic and reconstructive surgery department at the renowned Memorial Sloane Kettering Centre. In Singapore, Dr. Alvin has previously worked exclusively in surgical departments, rotating between plastics, A&E, and surgery. While not obligated to, Dr. Alvin chose to stay on in major public hospitals during the SARS crisis and was later recognised for his contributions.
