Dr. Ivan Puah extends his service to Sports Aesthetics® to meet the demands of athletes


Sports Aesthetics® is a term coined by Dr. Ivan Puah based on the three pillars of combining unique service offerings to help fitness enthusiasts, sports enthusiasts and professional athletes achieve their ideal physique without compromising on quality. of their physical health.

Singapore, May 25, 2022 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — SINGAPORE, May 2022 — Since 2019, Amaris B. Clinic has expanded its medical aesthetic and surgical body sculpting services by offering fitness and integrative medicine programs. Today, the clinic is establishing itself as Singapore’s first and only aesthetic, sculpting and fitness clinic by launching Sporty Aesthetics®focused on meeting the health needs and beauty requirements of athletes.

Amaris B. Clinic medical director Dr. Ivan Puah, who has over 15 years of experience in surgical body sculpting and graduate degrees in family dermatology and sports medicine, shares that this psychograph grants more attention to their mental and physical health. However, their demands and needs are still not met under one roof.

“It was during the pandemic that I noticed two very diverse groups of patients in my clinic. The first group is the one who reduced self-care, gained weight and started to look old due to overeating and under-activity. The second group is the kind where looking and feeling physically good is not just a lifestyle but their ongoing life goal. They take care of their bodies – inside and out. ‘outside.

Essentially, Sports Aesthetics® is based on the three pillars of Amaris B. Clinic’s unique combination offerings:

  1. Medical aesthetics and body modeling

  2. Vacuum workout and manual lymphatic drainage massage

  3. Sports rehabilitation and pain management

01. Medical aesthetics and body modeling

People who like to train in the sun, such as runners, cyclists, football players, tennis players, golfers, and outdoor and water sports enthusiasts, are at high risk of skin damage resulting in sunspots, fine lines and wrinkles, hyperpigmentation, photoaging and premature aging. skin aging. High-intensity workouts and cardiovascular workouts are effective for burning fat and great for overall weight loss, but often lead to substantial loss of facial fat, which makes athletes look haggard.

The first pillar is where aesthetics marry athletics. Amaris B. Clinic has organized a range of personalized medical aesthetic and anti-aging services to help athletes regain skin radiance, youthfulness and loss of volume, lift the skin while defining and improving more the silhouette of their face. Often athletes tend to look older, with more sunken facial features and less healthy skin due to long hours of training or working out in the sun. The Amaris B. clinic aims to respond to the problems of skin aging encountered by this group of people.

As fit as they are, many athletes and fitness enthusiasts still face the same big fat problem – the inability to shed stubborn pockets of fat despite eating a clean, healthy diet and strict exercise regimen.

“I have seen many patients who train 5-6 days a week, eat a healthy diet and yet cannot lose fat in their abdomen, waist, hips or thighs. These patients turn to surgical body contouring such as liposuction or high definition Lipo to enhance what they have been working on for so long with no visible results, my goal is to help them remove layers of fat and create a more athletic, proportionate and aesthetic. says Dr. Ivan Puah, who is trained in the United States in various body sculpting techniques.

Fat loss is a common occurrence among active athletes and unfortunately one cannot dictate where fat loss occurs. Due to intensive workouts, many sportswomen tend to lose fat on their breasts, which results in a deflated chest. ADR-C breast enhancement helps to add volume and compensate for fat loss by utilizing the source of body fat for increased cup size and a subtle breast lift.

People who work out in gyms are no strangers to “shirt-off”. However, some men suffer from gynecomastia and lack the confidence to do so. This male breast disorder affects 60-70% of men worldwide, including sportsmen and athletes, causing breast pain, discomfort and swelling and will require a suitable surgical approach to effectively treat this condition. Gynecomastia surgery, performed by Dr. Ivan Puah, is a surgically proven treatment to successfully address this issue.

02. Vacuum workout and manual lymphatic drainage massage

Amaris B. Clinic recognizes that beauty goes beyond the skin. The second pillar features Vacuum Pod Workout, which uses vacuum compression therapy, alternating high and low pressure, to target cellulite, poor blood circulation, and loose connective tissue. The volume of an elastic container can be increased by applying a vacuum force to its outer wall. In the negative pressure phase of vacuum compression therapy, the force of the vacuum acts on the extremities and their vessels. In the positive pressure phase, venous drainage is facilitated.

Manual Lymphatic Drainage (MLD) massage, performed by trained therapists at the Amaris B. Clinic, helps stimulate the body’s secondary circulation functions, the lymphatic system. Doing MLD regularly encourages the removal and filtering of wastes, toxins, and excess fluids from the cells. It also acts on the autonomic nervous system to promote relaxation and stress reduction.

Conditions such as cellulite, post-liposuction swelling, fatigue, stress, general water retention and many more can benefit from MLD.

The lymphatic and circulatory systems will significantly benefit from these unique offerings, thus making a stronger immune system and more efficient blood circulation for these athletes.

03. Sports rehabilitation and pain management

Injuries are inevitable when you’re in motion too long or too often. The 3rd pillar is sports rehabilitation and pain management, led by their in-house myotherapist, Ronald Villegas, who has over ten years of clinical experience treating a variety of injuries, both occupational, recreational and athletic. Ronald examines, controls and manages myofascial pain, injuries and disorders affecting activity and mobility while prescribing appropriate exercises, postural advice and education, and using modern rehabilitation technologies to improve pain and patient health. “My purpose and passion is to help people live pain-free lives, to better understand their bodies, and to give them the tools they need to function independently of treatments and external aids,” says Ronald.

“With our medical team and in-house myotherapist, Amaris B. Clinic can provide everything athletes need under one roof for their convenience and as their confidence respite. We believe that beauty is not just about looking good , but also to make an effort to ensure that the body is optimal. After all, health is beauty, and beauty is health,” Dr. Ivan Puah shares.
