You have seen bloggers write their reviews about plastic surgery and perhaps have a friend who has tried a lunchtime procedure, but is plastic surgery in Singapore really what you think it is? Separating the facts from fiction, here are some myths worth busting regarding plastic surgery.
1. It is unaffordable
Many believe that they can’t afford plastic surgery, especially in Singapore, because of its astronomical cost. This is actually not true, as the cost of different procedures vary based on the complexity of the surgery. Surgeons can analyze your needs before suggesting an affordable solution that is within your means. To cater to a patient’s financial needs, some clinics provide installment plans for more expensive surgeries.
Additionally, in comparison to doing cosmetic procedures in Korea, having them done at home means that your surgeon will always be readily available for consultations should you need any medical advice or attention after the procedure. You’ll definitely have a more seamless experience from pre- to post- surgery.
“A patient who shops around for the cheapest surgeon may not get the best surgeon.” – Dr Por Yong Chen, Medical Director of Dream Aesthetics & Plastic Surgery.
Well, you only have one face - when it comes to cosmetic surgeries, money shouldn’t matter as much as the skills of the surgeon! This leads to the next myth...
2. Local surgeons are inexperienced
You’ve seen 'before and after' photos. Most of them are from Korea, which makes you wonder - why don’t you see any of these photos online in Singapore? There are surgeons here, but where are the successful cases in Singapore?
Well, this is simply because guidelines from the Ministry of Health and the Singapore Medical Council state that clinics are not allowed to use 'before and after' photos for advertising in Singapore’s plastic surgery industry.
Plastic surgery is a relatively mature industry in Singapore. With our medical advancement, coupled with sophisticated technologies, local surgeons can produce excellent results.

3. It is not safe
While various procedures carry different risks, plastic surgeries are generally safe for people who are functioning healthily. It is the surgeon’s responsibility to assess the patient’s health and suitability before procedure.
If you are considering having your procedure done locally, you can have peace of mind knowing that you’ll be getting professional medical attention and holistic care from our medical team from the beginning till the end and even years later. This is unlike overseas services, where the amount of aftercare you receive is limited to the time you can spend in the country.
