SURGICAL DERMATOLOGIST

Dr Joyce Lim has a special interest and expertise in lasers and dermatological procedures including dermatologic surgery. Almost all of the dermatologic surgery is done in an outpatient setting, in a dedicated operating room in the clinic. After a thorough history, examination and discussion, the surgery can be done on the same day with local or topical anaesthesia. We will walk with you through the various surgical procedures, the intra-procedural period and the post-procedural care. We will take measures to leave you with as small a scar as is possible. Besides laser and dermatologic surgery Dr Joyce Lim also performs other procedures such as cosmetic injections, chemical peels, cryotherapy, sclerotherapy, non-surgical fat reduction, skin tightening and lifting and absorbable thread lifts
