Established in 1978, Wong’s Plastic Surgery Centre began with Dr Wong Saw Yeen, a Colombo Plan Scholar who was a pioneer in the field of Plastic Surgery in Singapore. He sought his own advancement in the field of cosmetic surgery with observerships, conferences and fellowships in Hawaii, Mayo Clinic, USA, Japan and Thailand with procedures such as eyelid surgery, rhinoplasty, face-lifts and gender reassignment surgery.
Having operated on many celebrities and socialites in Singapore, Dr Wong Saw Yeen is most well known for his eyelid surgery and handling difficult cases and revisions.
Dr Marcus Wong carries on this tradition of plastic surgery in the family. From a very young age, he followed his father to hospitals and sat at the nurse’s counter while his Dad attended to patients on the wards in the evenings. During school holidays, he folded gauzes and rolled cotton balls to be sterilized for surgery in the days when they did not come in disposable packs.
But it takes more than imitation and helping out during school holidays to be a plastic surgeon; years of study, practice and hard work must be committed.
Marcus enjoyed an advantage over others. He had more than 40 years to watch and learn from his father who has been in private practice for nearly 40 years.
The two men trained in different eras, learning different but complementary techniques and styles.
After more than 20 years at Tan Tock Seng Hospital where he was senior consultant, founding head and program director of the plastic surgery service, Marcus’s focus is on the newer, minimally invasive procedures that allow for the incorporation oftechnologies such as lasers, radiofrequency, and micro- and nano- fat transfer techniques into his face lift and eyelid surgeries, which complements Dr Wong senior’s well-honed conventional surgical skills that he is renowned for.
As the only father-son plastic surgeon duo here in the region, with combined expertise of more than 60 years in plastic surgery and a track record of thousands of successful cases, let Wong’s Plastic Surgery Centre Discover the Wow in You!
