Allure Plastic Surgery

Located at the penthouse floor of Wisma Atria, Allure Plastic Surgery is headed by consultant plastic surgeon Dr Samuel Ho ( 何耀明医生). This elegant day surgery centre focuses on Mummy makeovers, Tummy tucks, Eyelid surgery, delicate Rhinoplasty work and Breast surgery.
Dr Samuel has a keen interest in research and has had more than 17 publications in various leading international journals such as the Plastic & Reconstructive Surgery and Journal of Plastic Reconstructive & Aesthetic Surgery and is one of the contributing authors in leading plastic surgery textbook Grabb’s Encyclopaedia of Flaps.

Other accolades to his name include receiving the Gold Medal from the College of Surgeons in 2014 and being awarded the MOH Health and Manpower Development Program award for Aesthetic Surgery and Craniofacial Surgery Fellowship in Seoul, South Korea.

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.

Aside from regular work, Dr Samuel dedicates time towards helping those in need and doing pro-bono surgeries. He is a supporter of a not-for-profit medical volunteer organization that provides reconstructive facial surgery to young children in Indonesia.


“Dr. Ho is the best! After one month I feel great! My procedure went easy and I am more than happy with my new look. I feel amazing thanks to my great doctor. He is always cheerful and patient, and he makes me feel relaxed. And he knows exactly what I need. I took all his advice and did more than I planned in the beginning. I just showed him a picture of how I wanted my look to be, and I got it just right”

– Zalina S

“I highly recommend Dr. Samuel Ho! I went with my wife as she wanted to have a procedure about a month ago and she is thrilled with the results. Dr. Samuel is extremely knowledgeable, professional and caring. He was accessible day and night with any questions or concerns that my wife had both prior to and after the surgery. The staff at Allure are extremely professional and accommodating. We both are 100% satisfied with the overall experience. Do not hesitate to make an appointment.”
– A Faizul
“I’ve gone to Dr. Samuel for several times. After some disastrous treatments from other doctors here in Singapore I was introduced to Dr. Samuel. I hoped to feel good and “pretty” again. I found him to be professional and compassionate. I am now several weeks after my op and I feel and really good. He is a very skilled surgeon, he did an amazing job for me. I was skeptical after my previous experiences but he is really good. Thank you doctor! If I’ll have other procedures, it’s going to be with Dr. Samuel. The nurses are terrific and hands great understanding for what is needed, thank you everybody!”

Two years ago, a strange thing happened. “Dad bods” were in, and women got hot for those soft, doughy physiques, more so than the guy with washboard abs. Suddenly, men had a good excuse for empathy binging with their pregnant wives.

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.

Business Times Singapore,'Best Face Forward', 12 June 2017

Advanced technology has produced such good results in cosmetic procedures that even men are getting it, not just women.

“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.

Style Beauty Spotlight, 'Change is in Dr Samuel Ho's hands', 1 April 2017

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.

Had a tad too much turkey and tequila at the festive fetes this season? Or perhaps that irritating “muffin top” seems stubbornly impervious to all the huffing and puffing you’re putting yourself through at the gym.

Either way, don’t despair. The solution: Try a Cellulite Smoothie instead.

A what? Nope, you you wouldn’t be downing a beautifying beverage. Instead, this doctor-designed “smoothie” (AKA Zwave) by Privé Aesthetics employs energy to essentially shrink pockets of fat. The potent pressure of these mechanical shockwaves is assimilated deep into the tissue, literally “shocking” it into action. …… Read More Here
