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.
Married to a beautiful wife and as a father of two, Dr Samuel has a profound respect for all mothers who have undergone childbirth and experienced changes in their bodies post pregnancy. Helping people feel good about themselves and restoring their self-confidence is the driving force behind his passion for plastic surgery.

Past those nine months and add a screaming baby or two, the weight piled on. Dads got pudgier as their testosterone and metabolic levels decreased over time. Fatherhood is a slippery slope, even if we all love our dads for who they are rather than how they look.
To every man sporting a beer gut right now, there is hope. Of course, a healthy diet and constant exercise will burn fat and help you build lean muscle, but if you haven’t got the time or inclination, Dr Samuel Ho of Allure Plastic Surgery has the following ideas up his sleeves. Go on, try them on for size.
“Men are now more open to looking good and being fashionable because they’re better travelled and they are also influenced by social media,” observes Dr Samuel Ho, consultant plastic surgeon and medical director of Allure Plastic Surgery. “Plus it’s so accessible these days.”
The Demographic most open to having work done would be working men aged 30 to 50 years. Personal vanity is one reason, but the stronger pull is career pressure. “Many of us are also judged at work by ur physical appearance in addition to our actual work performance,” says Dr Ho, citing an American study which showed that good-looking men were 15 per cent more likely to be in higher positions or paid more than their less good-looking peers.
Dr Samuel Ho didn’t choose plastic surgery; it chose him. “Plastic surgery is an ultra-competitive field, and as a medical student, I didn’t think I had a shot, so it wasn’t my first choice. I was actually approached to specialise in it,” the charismatic founder of Allure Plastic Surgery shares.
Groundbreaking Work As with the best success stories, this unexpected opportunity led to a chain of equally astounding breakthroughs. In 2010, Dr Ho became Tan Tock Seng Hospital’s first Advanced Surgical Trainee (Plastic Surgery), and finished the Plastic Surgery Exit Examinations as the top candidate, receiving the College of Surgeons Gold Medal in 2014.
He then pioneered several surgical techniques for the hospital to enhance nose augmentation, upper eyelid ptosis surgery, facial fracture surgery and breast reconstruction. Widely recognised for his contribution to the field, he was the only Singaporean plastic surgeon invited to publish a chapter in leading plastic surgery textbook Grabb’s Encyclopedia of Flaps.
In 2012, he also became the first and only plastic surgeon in Singapore awarded a Health Manpower Development Programme aesthetic surgery fellowship in South Korea by the Ministry of Health, and trained under top plastic surgeons in Seoul.
