Dr Tan decided to leave KTPH to start The Rhinoplasty Clinic to devote more time and energy and to focus more on his passion that is Rhinoplasty.Dr Tan advocates using autologous (from own body) materials in rhinoplasties as he believes this is the safer, more natural and lasting option. He also feels the nose is not just about looking good, but functionally it has to perform well too. In this respect, his foundation in ENT gives him valuable insights to retaining or improving the functional aspect of the nose when he performs his rhinoplasties.Dr Tan owes his deep gratitude to his mentors in NUS, the Singapore ENT and Facial Plastics fraternity and Shimmian Rhinoplasty Clinic, in particular, Professor Jung Dong Hak, Professor Han Seong Yik, Professor Chang Geun Uek and Professor Choi Woong Chul. He is ever grateful to these giants of their respective specialties for opening his eyes to new perspectives that cannot be easily taught in textbooks or anywhere else.
