About Dr Tay

Dr Valerie Tay completed her postgraduate Otolaryngology (Ear, nose and throat) training in Singapore.

She was awarded the Ministry of Health (MOH) Health Manpower Development Programme (HMDP) Scholarship, and she pursued advanced sub-specialty training in Facial Plastic Surgery in South Korea.

She completed a one-year fellowship in the renowned Navi Plastic Surgery Clinic, a high volume plastic surgery centre in Seoul, Korea.

She is experienced with a wide range of ENT conditions in both adults and children, such as sinus problems, snoring, ear problems and salivary gland diseases. She is one of the few ENT surgeons in Singapore who has been trained in endonasal (scarless) rhinoplasty, eyelid surgery as well as facial bone surgery.

Most recently, she was a consultant with the Otolaryngology department in Tan Tock Seng Hospital, where she led the Facial Plastic Surgery service.

Having a keen interest in teaching, she served as a clinical senior lecturer with the Yong Loo Lin School of Medicine, National University of Singapore, and was a Core Faculty member of the ENT (ACGME-I) residency programme. She has also been invited to share her knowledge at local and international conferences on various topics in Facial Plastic surgery, and is a co-author of book chapters in Facial Plastic Surgery texts.

Dr Tay believes that health is a way of life. Medications and surgery are only part of the answer in healthcare, she believes in empowering her patients to take responsibility for their diet and lifestyle choices to improve their well being.

Her philosophy towards aesthetics is that health and beauty are not mutually exclusive, that form and function are closely intertwined. Her background in ENT allows her to manage both form and function equally well.
