A Comprehensive Guide to Dream Plastic Surgery Singapore: What You Need to Know

The pursuit of beauty is both a personal journey and a reflection of ever-evolving beauty trends fuelled by pop culture. As such, the desire to become a better version of oneself has taken centre stage — in fact, 46% out of 1,202 respondents in Singapore said that they were considering undergoing plastic surgery

As people seek to achieve an enhanced version of themselves, Dream Plastic Surgery emerges as a solution, offering a pathway to achieving one’s aesthetic goals and greater self-confidence. 

From its humble beginnings to its current global eminence, this guide aims to shed light on the visionaries and transformations that define Dream Plastic Surgery. 

Part 2 — The Legacy and History of Dream Plastic Surgery

2.1 The Evolution of Dream Plastic Surgery

Founded in 1999 by Dr. Yang-Soo Park, Dream Medical Group (DMG) Korea originated within the halls of Seoul National University, known for hosting Korea’s well-known plastic surgery programme. DMG Korea quickly embarked on a steadfast mission within the Korean plastic surgery industry, placing a strong emphasis on quality and personalised approaches to cosmetic surgery.

Despite attaining significant recognition, DMG remained anchored in ethical values and quality. Over the years, the clinic evolved from a modest two-surgeon practice into a multifaceted institution. Expanding its horizons, DMG now offers a comprehensive range of services, including aesthetic dentistry, dermatology, and cosmeceuticals, all steeped in years of research and development.

This evolution extended beyond Korea’s borders, a natural progression for a country known for its expertise in plastic surgery. Singapore was selected as the hub to extend these services to the wider region, offering greater accessibility while maintaining exceptional healthcare standards.

In February 2014, this journey reached a milestone with the launch of Dream Plastic Surgery Singapore. Guiding this flagship clinic is Associate Professor Vincent Yeow, a board-certified plastic surgeon specialising in craniofacial and plastic surgery. This union marked a significant chapter in the evolution of Dream Plastic Surgery and is a testament to its dedication to providing quality services and expanding its impact across borders.

2.2 Meet the Doctors

In cosmetic surgery, the choice of clinic and plastic surgeon holds as much significance as the selection of the appropriate procedure. At Dream Plastic Surgery, our doctors bring not only technical proficiency but also a strong understanding of the individualised nature of beauty.

Part 3 — What Sets Dream Plastic Surgery Apart

3.1 Transformations Tailored to You

Key Procedures Performed at Dream Plastic Surgery

In our quest to assist you in realising your aesthetic aspirations, Dream Plastic Surgery offers a wide array of procedures and services, each meticulously designed to address your unique needs. Among the key procedures performed at our clinic are:

1. Double Eyelid Surgery

The primary goal of double eyelid surgery is to create a well-defined crease in the upper eyelid, adding depth and contour to the eyes. This procedure is preferred among individuals with monolids or less defined eyelid creases, seeking a more prominent and expressive eye appearance.

2. Ptosis Correction

Ptosis can result from various factors, including age-related tissue weakening, congenital conditions, muscle disorders, or neurological issues. Regardless of the cause, ptosis can affect your vision and contribute to a tired or asymmetrical appearance. At Dream Plastic Surgery, our plastic surgeons understand the balance between functionality and aesthetics, offering personalised ptosis correction to elevate both your gaze and confidence.

3. Eye Bag Removal

Eyebags can result from various factors, including ageing, genetics, lifestyle, or fluid retention. These under-eye bulges can contribute to a tired, aged, or less vibrant appearance. Beyond the physical discomfort, eyebags can affect facial aesthetics, making you appear fatigued even when well-rested. Eye bag removal, also called lower blepharoplasty, addresses puffiness or sagging under the eyes, revitalising the appearance.

4. Nose Job

A nose job, also known as rhinoplasty, is a highly personalised procedure that caters to individual desires and concerns. Whether you seek refinement, correction of breathing issues, or a complete nasal transformation, our plastic surgeons work closely with you to understand your goals and create a tailored plan.

5. Breast Augmentation

Breast augmentation is a type of cosmetic surgery designed to enhance the size, shape, and overall appearance of the breasts. It offers a range of choices, including implant type, implant size, and placement options. This versatility allows for a customised approach, ensuring that the results align with your unique body proportions and aesthetic ideals.

6. Liposuction

Liposuction is designed to address localised fat deposits that may be resistant to diet and exercise. It can be done on various areas of the body, including the abdomen, arms, and thighs. Beyond reducing fat, liposuction contributes to improved body proportions and contours by selectively removing excess fat. Our plastic surgeons will work with you to create a balanced and sculpted appearance that enhances the overall harmony of your physique.

7. Facelift

A facelift, also known as rhytidectomy, is a multi-step procedure aimed at revitalising the face and neck by addressing common signs of ageing like sagging skin, wrinkles, and loss of muscle tone. 

The goal is to achieve a more youthful and refreshed appearance while maintaining natural-looking results. This involves utilising various techniques tailored to individual needs and preferences, ranging from conventional facelift methods to less invasive approaches. Additional procedures such as fat grafting may also be incorporated to enhance volume and contour.

8. Dermal Fillers

Dermal fillers are gel-like substances injected beneath the skin to restore lost volume, smooth lines, soften creases, or enhance facial contours. They address areas that have lost volume due to ageing, fine lines, wrinkles, or hollowed areas. Additionally, dermal fillers can be used to augment lips, enhance cheekbones, or reshape the jawline. 

Results are temporary, lasting several months to over a year, depending on the filler type. Our doctors adopt a strategic approach when using dermal fillers to ensure natural-looking results while preserving facial harmony.

9. Laser Treatments

Laser skin treatment involves the use of focused light energy to address various skin concerns and conditions. This non-invasive or minimally invasive procedure can target specific areas of the skin with precision, promoting skin rejuvenation, correction of pigmentation issues, reduction of wrinkles and fine lines, and improvement in skin texture and tone. 

Your journey with laser treatment begins with an in-depth consultation, where our doctors evaluate your skin concerns, discuss your goals, and customise a laser treatment plan to suit your individual needs.

3.2 Care Beyond the Procedure

Dream Plastic Surgery’s

We understand that undergoing plastic surgery in Singapore, or any non-invasive or minimally invasive treatment, is a significant and potentially life-changing decision. 

Recognising the emotional and physical impact of such choices, we place emphasis on providing care beyond the procedures to provide a supportive and holistic experience for every individual.

Our team prioritises your comfort, safety, and satisfaction through a range of aftercare services:

1. Post-Operative Monitoring

Continuous monitoring of your vital signs is an integral part of our aftercare approach. This ensures that your immediate post-surgery recovery progresses smoothly, allowing us to address any emerging concerns promptly.

2. Wound Care and Dressing Changes

Proper care and maintenance of surgical incisions are essential to minimise the risk of infection and promote optimal healing. Our aftercare includes regular dressing changes and attentive wound care to facilitate a seamless recovery process.

3. Pain Management

Our plastic surgeons may prescribe pain medications during the initial recovery phase. The goal is to alleviate discomfort, allowing you to navigate the postoperative period with minimal pain and stress.

4. Swelling and Bruising Management

Our aftercare includes techniques such as cold compresses and specialised garments after liposuction to reduce swelling and bruising. These measures contribute to a more comfortable recovery and enhance the aesthetic outcome of your procedure.

5. Scar Management

After a plastic surgery procedure, scar management is vital for optimal healing and minimising scar visibility. This includes following post-operative instructions, keeping the incision site moisturised, protecting it from sun exposure, undergoing scar-reducing treatments as recommended, being patient for scars to mature, and attending scheduled follow-up visits with the surgeon.

6. Follow-Up Appointments

Scheduled follow-up visits with our plastic surgeons are a crucial component of our aftercare. These appointments allow us to monitor your progress, address any concerns, and make necessary adjustments to achieve your desired outcomes.

7. Dietary and Lifestyle Guidance

We believe in a holistic approach to aftercare. Hence, our medical team offers recommendations for suitable diet and lifestyle adjustments that support healing and promote overall well-being during your recovery.

8. Patient Education

Knowledge is empowering — our aftercare includes comprehensive patient education, offering information about what to expect during recovery, potential side effects, and complications. This understanding equips you to navigate the postoperative period with confidence.
