Meet Dr Yuen.
Dr SM Yuen ~ Atlas Medical - Laser & Aesthetics Clinic, uses Korean surgical and non-surgical medical aesthetic treatments to tackle a variety of problems ranging from aesthetic dermatology to cosmetic enhancements. Dr Yuen’s professional opinion, technical approach, and concept of modern natural beauty makes him one of the brightest minds in medical aesthetics today.
Dr Yuen is formally mentored and trained by one of Korea’s top aesthetic doctors – Dr Lee Hong Ki, founder and medical director of the DIET group of aesthetic clinics in Korea. The Korean approach towards medical aesthetics is unique and its foundations lie in the key pillars of synergy, efficacy, reproducibility, sustainability and safety.
Korean Medical Aesthetics (Surgical & Non-surgical):
A.R.T™ (Atlas Regenerative Transformation) is the foundation of Dr SM Yuen’s approach to beauty and anti-ageing, and these proprietary, innovative and synergistic techniques derived from his Korean training help patients optimize results and subtly enhance their youthfulness and appearances.
The ART™ series of treatments has been formally introduced in Dr Yuen’s practice to signal a transformation of his practice to provide solutions to aesthetic concerns and problems using the Korean approach that is tweaked for local preferences.
ART™ V Lift, ART™ Reduce, ART™ Refill & ART™ Relax are among Dr Yuen’s popular aesthetic surgery procedures, while ART™ Ultherapy offers patients non-surgical face lifting and skin tightening.
The emphasis in Dr Yuen’s practice is geared towards:
Dr Yuen is not a proponent of chasing after brand names and fanciful marketing hype, but chooses to rely on tried and tested techniques that have been revised, improved and customized for Asian skin and patient preferences. The rationale behind this is simple: it is never the machine or brand that gets patients results. It is the doctor behind the machine and the doctor’s hands that get the results, and the doctor’s sense of aesthetics and logic that ensures the results are pleasing.
Dr Yuen has been extensively interviewed and featured by the media, tapping on his opinions and key concepts towards understanding medical aesthetics and the truths and myths. There is never a boring interview with Dr Yuen as he takes you through the highs and lows of the practice of medical aesthetics in his trademark friendly, humorous yet succinct, precise and no-holds barred / no nonsense manner.

“Many patients tend to be extremely confused by the tons of information and mis-information on the internet and the casual chatter among friends seldom yield the real truth about medical aesthetics”.
Dr Yuen’s clinic aims to chart new horizons, expand frontiers and develop safe and effective solutions for common problems. Drawing from the best of Korean philosophies and expertise, and with a forward thinking, logical and problem-oriented work ethos, Dr Yuen is unwavering in his quest to better patients’ lives by redefining the future of medical aesthetics in Singapore.
“It is easy to fall into the trap of chasing after pure monetary reward without consideration of the risks and benefits of aesthetic procedures. As doctors, we must ensure we do not become victims of over-commercialisation, but continuously seek to uphold the proud and noble traditions of the medical profession of putting patients first”.
Dr Yuen remains true to his calling of being a doctor first - to always “first do no harm” – while continuing to push boundaries in helping patients achieve natural beauty and captivating youthfulness.
