Dr Wong Chin Ho is a Plastic Surgeon accredited by the Ministry of Health of Singapore. He graduated from the Medical Faculty of the National University of Singapore in 2000 and was one of the top students of his graduating class. He completed his Basic Surgical Training in General Surgery in 2004 and went on to complete his Advance Surgical Training in Plastic Surgery at the Department of Plastic Reconstructive and Aesthetic Surgery at the Singapore general Hospital in 2008.

Dr Wong is fellowship trained in Aesthetic Plastic Surgery and Reconstructive Microsurgery. In 2007, under a scholarship by the Human Manpower Development Program administered by the Ministry of Health of Singapore, he went to do a 1-year Reconstructive Microsurgery and Asian Aesthetic Surgery fellowship under Professor Fu-Chan Wei at the Chang Gung Memorial Hospital in Taiwan. This was followed by a 6 month Advanced Facial Aesthetic Surgery Fellowship with Dr Bryan Mendelson in Melbourne Australia in 2009. In 2010, he was the first recipient of the International Fellowship awarded by the American Society for Aesthetic Surgery (ASAPS). This prestigious scholarship, given by leading professional organization of plastic surgeons who specialize in cosmetic plastic surgery in the USA gave him the opportunity to spend time with and learn from top American plastic surgeons throughout the USA. This extensive experience and training gave his the skills to apply the most advanced techniques in Aesthetic Surgery for his patients.

Dr Wong remains passionate and actively involved in clinical and basic science research. He has published over 70 peer review articles and contributed several book chapters in key reference textbooks in plastic surgery. His research interests include facial anatomy, anatomical changes of the aging, aesthetic surgery of the Asian face and anatomy of the Asian Nose. Dr Wong is a visiting consultant to the Department of Plastic Reconstructive and Aesthetic Surgery at Singapore General Hospital. He continues to be involved in the management of complex plastic surgical cases as well as have a leadership role in the teaching of young plastic surgeons in his subspecialty of Aesthetic Plastic Surgery and Surgical Anatomy.
