Dr Adam Ong
In this interview, Dr Adam Ong, Aesthetic Physician, Ozhean A.M. Clinic shares some stories from behind the skins and his interest in the aesthetic industry.
What do you do and how did you get into the industry?
I am an aesthetic physician. I was always intrigued by Korean culture and passion in aesthetic medicine and when I knew Ozhean Clinic in Korea were going to expand to Malaysia, I did not hesitate to be a part of it. Korean aesthetic approaches are more results-oriented, and the new advancement is fast. Thus, doctors need to improve their skills in keeping up with the trends continually.
Why aesthetic medicine?
I love art, and I love making people feeling beautiful. Nevertheless, aesthetic medicine is about the enhancement of one’s beauty with scientific knowledge and a skilled hand to ensure the best result while maintaining safety.
