Dr Evan Woo is a Plastic Surgeon accredited by the Ministry of Health, who is noted for his specialisation in breast cancer surgery and reconstruction.
Dr Woo started with a broad-based training in plastic surgery, covering all aspects of reconstruction, wound and scar management, and aesthetic surgery.
Staying true to his belief that super-specialisation would provide a more nuanced understanding and therefore better outcomes for his patients, he furthered his training at The Nottingham Breast Institute on a Health Manpower Development Programme scholarship. There, he honed his skills in the advancing fronts of breast cancer surgery – microsurgical breast reconstruction and oncoplastic breast surgery.
Currently, he is one of a handful of surgeons in Singapore able to offer both the full range of options in breast cancer removal (lumpectomy / breast conservation surgery / oncoplastic breast surgery), and the full gamut of reconstructive options after both breast removal or breast conservation surgery (including use of perforator flap-free tissue transfer). This ensures a truly integrated and comprehensive breast surgery practice.
At the same time, Dr Woo’s aesthetic surgery practice is a perfect complement to his work in breast care. He has extensive experience in breast enhancement (augmentation, lifts, reductions and rejuvenation) and body contouring (tummy tucks, liposuction and fat grafting).
He also runs a laser service that initially served to augment his surgical practice by optimising the management of scars, but he has since extended the use of lasers to the management of pigmentation and skin rejuvenation. He has been engaged as a key opinion leader by several notable laser manufacturers.
He is concurrently a consultant plastic surgeon and a consultant breast surgeon at KK Women’s and Children’s Hospital, Singapore’s premier hospital for women and children. He is also a tutor at Duke-NUS Graduate Medical School where he holds the appointment of Adjunct Assistant Professor.
Dr Woo is the Founder and President of the Breast Reconstruction Awareness Singapore (BRAS), a non-profit society that aims to educate Singaporeans about breast reconstruction.
