Interview with Dr Ong Yan Ying

Dr. Ong, as a female doctor at M.A.C Clinic, can you share some unique success stories or patient transformations related to the CoolSculpting procedure that have particularly inspired you in your career?

The most remarkable transformation that I can recall was when I met a mother of three who came to us feeling so low and conscious about herself. At the same time she was pretty occupied with juggling life and three children that she barely had time to eat well, let alone exercise. So when I saw her I suggested to treat her belly pouch as I think that it is suitable, as the treatment takes little time and it doesn’t evolve any down time. After three months she came out looking like a whole different person. Not only was her belly pouch gone but most importantly she felt so confident and that made her look even more beautiful and stories like this are my source of motivation to do better in my career.

CoolSculpting is often praised for its non-invasive nature. Could you elaborate on how this procedure specifically caters to the needs and concerns of your female patients at M.A.C Clinic?

Many of our female patients are actually career women so they often seek quick treatment with little to no downtime. Traditionally only liposuction was the available treatment to remove localised fat pockets and that requires anaesthesia and longer recovery period. But right now with the technology of CooSculpting the treatment only requires 45 to 90 minutes and after the treatment patients can resume their daily activities as usual.

In your experience, what are the most common misconceptions about CoolSculpting among women, and how do you address and educate your patients about these misconceptions?

There are actually many misconceptions regarding CoolSculpting but if I were to point out one it is that many people believe that it assists with weight loss. This is actually not true because it is a non-invasive body treatment that helps to get rid of stubborn fat pockets that can’t be shed with regular exercises and dieting so for best results CoolSculpting has to be done in combination with healthy lifestyle modifications.

As a woman in the medical field, do you find that your patients, feel more comfortable discussing body image concerns with you?

It is understandable that discussing body shapes and issues is actually a very sensitive topic and I feel that being a lady doctor in this industry it is actually a win, it’s a privilege because it makes it easier for me to communicate with my female patients regarding their insecurities and concern since I’m a woman and a mom myself and I do have similar concern sometimes. In fact with male patients I don’t usually encounter any trouble because they are usually quite open.

M.A.C Clinic is known for its innovative approaches to aesthetics. What sets your CoolSculpting treatments apart from others, and how do these unique aspects benefit your patients?

First of all we have to ability to perform dual sculpting whereby we have two CoolSculpting machines to run the treatment concurrently. This cuts the treatment time which means that more parts can be treated in much less time. Secondly, to complement the treatment after achieving one’s body goals, they can undergo a Lipo Massage treatment which helps to reduce appearance of cellulite and also assist in body firming. 

Many women have busy lives and may wonder about the recovery and downtime associated with CoolSculpting. Could you provide insights into what women can expect in terms of recovery and when they can resume their normal daily activities after treatment at M.A.C Clinic?

I have actually tried the treatment myself to experience how it would be like to be able to share my experience with my patients. To be honest, this treatment is painless you will only feel a cooling sensation for a couple of minutes and thereafter the area will be numb for the rest of the duration of the treatment. During then, you can just relax, watch Netflix or even have your online meetings. So I can confidently say that the treatment is pretty comfortable. After this treatment you can proceed with your daily activities. It will usually take around 8 to 12 weeks for the results to show. Meanwhile you can continue maintaining a healthy lifestyle for the best results.
