A Word From
Dr Raymond Goh
Dr Raymond Goh MBBS (Hons) FRACS (Plast.)
“I enjoy the daily challenges that plastic surgery presents, both in the reconstructive and cosmetic arena. Each patient requires anatomical thinking in three dimensions, and every possible way of improving form and function needs to be carefully considered. Seeing happy patients continues to drives me to do my very best everyday.

Dr Goh believes in being at the forefront of evolution in plastic surgery, and enjoys regularly participating in select national and international plastic surgery congresses and master classes. Dr Goh believes that a fervent desire to learn and to continue to improve patient outcome is absolutely essential to a surgeon’s development no matter what level of experience they are at. In addition to ongoing professional development, Dr Goh is also involved in the training of local surgeons through mentorship, and registrar teaching.
Dr Goh believes that the key to a successful outcome in many plastic surgery procedures narrows down to a simplified equation. Firstly, both the patient and surgeon must be able to define, outline, and agree on clinical goals. Secondly, the aim of surgery and expectations on what is reasonably achievable must be clear; and, finally, the surgeon must possess the experience and technical expertise to be able to achieve the goals, and also to be able to deal with any potential complications should they arise.
Dr Goh has a special interest in Rhinoplasty (surgery of the nose).
