Physical appearance is not the utmost important thing but nevertheless can’t be denied that it’s always the first impression people have on us.
Aesthetic medicine combines non-invasive and minimally invasive procedures to improve ones appearance. I believes that by enhancing what ones already has and not changing the appearance entirely helps to boost ones confidence level which in turns allow them to show more of their personality to others.
When I first started doing aesthetic medicine, I have very little knowledge in this field. During my medical education or even training in hospitals I'm not exposed to any aesthetic related cases. It is entirely different from the traditional medical education. I am very grateful that Dr. Ko Clinic has provided me the learning opportunity and the career path. Being one of the leading aesthetic centres, I'm exposed to many latest technologies in aesthetic medicine.
I always believe a proper consultation is very important. It's the first encounter with the patient and the flow of consultation will determine whether we are able to gain patient trust n confidence on the doctor. During the consultation i need to know patients expectations and whether it is realistic and achievable. Based on patients needs I will recommend suitable treatments for them. Of course at times patient and doctor's point of view may clash. But as a doctor I will provide my professional advice to them and hopefully in the end of the day we are able to reach a mutual agreement on the treatment plan. I feel this is very important as it determines the patient satisfaction level and minimizing the potential risk of complaints/complications.
