Dr Chan was chief of plastic surgery with the United Family Healthcare Group in China at the Beijing United Family Hospital, where he was based for the last 4 years. His practice encompassed general plastic surgery with a large proportion devoted to clinic-based aesthetic services, from scar revision to laser / light-based therapies, non-invasive soft tissue contouring and injections in the form of Botox and Fillers. With extensive experience in aesthetic treatments and plastic surgery over the last 15 years, Dr Chan has served the expatriate community and many local well-heeled Chinese looking for foreign medical expertise. He regularly contributed to the Beijing United Family Hospital and Clinics Quarterly Newsletter from 2012-2016 with the following articles: “Sculpting the Face without the Knife”, “Smoothing Your Wrinkles Away”, “Pregnancy: Dealing with Stretch Marks and C-section Scars”, “Bothered by wrinkles?” and “Liposculpture”.
Having completed basic surgical traineeship in Singapore many years ago, Dr Chan chose to pursue plastic surgery in the UK where he trained and worked in leading centres in London and Glasgow. This was complemented with the pursuit of a deeper understanding of Light and Lasers (Level 4 BTEC Award) and clinical research culminating in an MSc from Cardiff University. He completed a Breast Reconstruction Fellowship in Birmingham, UK before moving to Beijing, China.
Throughout his career, Dr Chan has augmented his plastic surgery principles by participating in advanced courses in Botox, Fillers and other minimally-invasive aesthetic procedures like threadlifts, attaining the Diploma in Aesthetic Medicine.
An enthusiastic skier, Dr Chan considers himself an international citizen, having lived and worked abroad for over 10 years in the east and the west. Now back home, he is still very Singaporean with his love of local hawker fare and the must-have sambal balachan.
Dr Christopher Looi is the Resident Doctor for both The Covette Clinic and Uber Aesthetic Clinic at Roxy Square, Katong. He has over 10 years of medical experience and specialises in all non-invasive procedures ranging from chemical peels, injectables and lasers to non-surgical lifting procedures and minimally invasive facial thread lifts.
Dr Looi holds a double-degree in Medicine and Microbiology. He has also had accredited training from the Aesthetic Practice Oversight Committee (Singapore Medical Council) and American Association of Aesthetic Medicine (AAAM) for aesthetic procedures.
In his formative medical years, Dr Looi has been trained in several medical specialisations such as Obstetrics & Gynaecology, Neonatology, Anaesthesia, Emergency Medicine, General Surgery and Internal Medicine, across various leading hospitals in Singapore.
When he was presented with a golden opportunity to get into private practice, he realised that his skillsets are best showcased in Aesthetic Medicine. He has worked at a prominent aesthetic clinic in Singapore, alongside experienced aesthetic doctors who were considered to be pioneers in the field. Prior to joining The Covette Clinic, Dr Looi was the medical director of his own medical aesthetic clinic.
Dr Looi keeps his skillsets in Aesthetic Medicine up-to-date by attending both local and international medical aesthetic workshops and conferences. He is also an alumni of the prestigious Allergan Medical Institute (AMI) that emphasises on applied anatomy workshops and updates of Botox and dermal filler injections skills.
