About Allure Plastic Surgery
Dr Samuel Ho Yew Ming
Dr Samuel has a keen interest in research and has had more than 17 publications in various leading international journals such as the Plastic & Reconstructive Surgery and Journal of Plastic Reconstructive & Aesthetic Surgery and is one of the contributing authors in leading plastic surgery textbook Grabb’s Encyclopaedia of Flaps.
Other accolades to his name include receiving the Gold Medal from the College of Surgeons in 2014 and being awarded the MOH Health and Manpower Development Program award for Aesthetic Surgery and Craniofacial Surgery Fellowship in Seoul, South Korea.
Dr Samuel has worked alongside top plastic surgeons at plastic surgery centres in Korea, such as the Hanyang University Hospital, 101 Plastic Surgery Clinic and BIO Plastic Surgery Clinic. This invaluable training, together with his passion for research has led to the discovery of several new surgical techniques. This includes the use of orbicularis oculi muscle-sparing and the “under-through” levator aponeurosis plication technique for upper eyelid ptosis surgery, the use of ear cartilage with thigh fascia for nose augmentation and the muscle-sparing pedicled TRAM flap for breast reconstruction.
