His Background

Having graduated from the National University of Singapore with a Bachelor of Medicine and Bachelor of Surgery (MBBS), Dr. Chua Cheng Yu went on to obtain the prestigious post-graduate surgical qualifications from the Royal College of Surgeons (RCS) from Edinburgh. Through a wide range of clinical rotations, ranging from critical care to various surgical fields, he gained a broad understanding of the medical field before choosing to pursue a career in aesthetic medicine.

Trained by the Aesthetics Dermatology Education Group in Singapore, he is fully certified to perform a large range of procedures, such as Botulinum Toxin injections, dermal fillers, skin peels, medical IPL and lasers. His previous training in various surgical departments, including facial plastics surgery, also gave him a good understanding of facial anatomy, a pair of steady hands and a keen eye for detail. He has also presented and participated in local and overseas conferences to widen his exposure in the field.

Area Of Specialty

Tapping on his previous experience as a surgeon and his accreditation with the RCS, Dr Chua’s expertise lies in using safe and effective techniques for invasive procedures such as minimally invasive face lifting, botulinum toxin and filler injections. He advocates that the art of aesthetics has to be applied on a scientific basis with solid clinical evidence, which he applies to his skin treatments as well as other aesthetic enhancements. He firmly believes that the concept of beauty is a complex one that requires meticulous detail, artistry and subtlety, and a good appreciation of these factors enable him to create natural looking, personalised and lasting results for his patients.

Interests

Dr Chua’s passion for aesthetic medicine is a merger of his appreciation of the fine arts, together with his deep interest to heal and help others with medicine. He was a musician in his younger days and now plays the guitar, piano and saxophone for leisure. Besides music, he is an amateur photographer with interest in portrait and landscape photography. Dr Chua also volunteers regularly as a doctor to migrant workers to give back to the community.
