Dr Por’s philosophy of taking a holistic approach in patient care means he does more than merely come up with an effective treatment plan. He focuses on an in-depth consultation, where he attentively listens as patients share about how their concerns are affecting them. On top of that, he also considers the patients’ expectations and preferences. His attention to detail also means he takes extra care when it comes to designing each patient’s customised treatment plan, choosing the safest surgery techniques in order to reduce the visibility of scarring, optimise a faster recovery process and to achieve the longest-lasting result possible.
To Dr Por, his patient-centric problem-solving approach helps fuel his passion, because to him, plastic surgery not only rewards him with satisfaction but it has the potential to bring his patients joy and happiness too. Thanks to constant breakthroughs in modern medicine, Dr Por believes that there are always new and better ways to carry out various procedures. And while the search for perfection is often elusive and transient, he remains driven by an unrelenting quest for excellence.
Dr Por has held prestigious positions, including Head of Department of Plastic, Reconstructive & Aesthetic Surgery at KK Women’s & Children’s Hospital, and won notable awards including the Owen Cole Young Investigator’s Award and Young Surgeon’s Award. He is also actively involved in mission trips and charity work organised by Smile Asia to treat children suffering from cleft lip and palate anomalies in Third World countries. In his free time, Dr Por also enjoys the art of photography, an intensely gratifying hobby which similar to plastic surgery, requires precision, an eye for detail and a sense of aesthetics to capture the beauty of that perfect moment.
