Dr. Miguel Delgado and his staff recently welcomed Dr. Ivan Puah from Singapore to Marin Cosmetic Surgery Center, to further hone his surgical skills in gynecomastia surgery.
Dr. Miguel Delgado shared clinical and surgeries cases with Dr. Ivan Puah. Both doctors exchanged experiences on cases they have seen and performed, including post-surgery complications, surgical approaches, and more.
It was rewarding for Dr. Ivan Puah to receive one-on-one mentorship from Dr. Miguel Delgado in gynecomastia surgeries as well as observation of liposuction and a tummy tuck procedure. At the clinic, Dr. Ivan Puah had the opportunity to observe consultations, pre-operative patients, and management of post-operative patients who were having drain and suture removal.
Dr. Ivan Puah has been practicing medicine for more than 20 years with training in various disciplines including general surgery, orthopedic surgery, urology, dermatology, and many more. Since the establishment of his medical aesthetic practice, Amaris B. Clinic in 2004, Dr. Ivan Puah has been performing various types of surgical body sculpting procedures such as laserlipolysis, liposuction, VASER® Lipo, fat grafting, and gynecomastia.
Dr. Ivan Puah is a certified VASER® practitioner, obtaining his VASER® Body Sculpting training in Colorado and Argentina. In Singapore, he is accredited and recognized by the Ministry of Health to perform surgical body sculpting procedures.
“Gynecomastia is the top main concern for male patients in Singapore. As a doctor, it is important to provide patients with honest, ethical advice, as they put their trust in you; while managing their expectations realistically, working with them on achieving the results they want,” explains Dr. Ivan Puah.
We asked Dr. Ivan Puah on his key takeaway from the training, and he stated, “It was a very fruitful trip. Although I have been performing gynecomastia surgery for years, I am extremely humbled to have the opportunity to receive further training and to be mentored personally by Dr. Miguel Delgado, who is an expert in this field. He is very approachable, yet professional, and always ready to give advice. I look forward to more learning opportunities with Dr. Miguel Delgado in the near future.”
Gynecomastia.org, a popular educational online site, set up by Dr. Miguel Delgado and his team, is dedicated to providing comprehensive information for males who are facing issues with manboobs.
“I am glad that gynecomastia.org offers a platform for patients to share their experiences, research for the right information for their specific concerns and treatment options. To be listed on the doctor’s panel provides physicians like myself another useful channel to communicate and offer appropriate advice,” says Dr. Ivan Puah.
