Image
(THE STRAITS TIMES SINGAPORE) - The doctor involved in the liposuction death of real estate firm boss Franklin Heng in 2009 has been struck off by the Court of Three Judges.
In its decision, the court warned this would be the presumptive penalty for doctors displaying serious misconduct or dishonest behaviour, unless there were exceptional circumstances.

A second doctor, who assisted Dr Wong Meng Hang in the procedure, was suspended for 18 months instead of the original six months, in a definitive judgment where the court laid a sentencing framework in disciplinary cases for dealing with professional misconduct by doctors that results in harm to patients.

The court, in a rare move, also ordered the case be reported to the Public Prosecutor so that Dr Wong and Dr Zhu Xiu Chun can be investigated for any relevant criminal offences that may have been committed, including that of causing death by a rash or negligent act.

"While we express no views at all on whether any criminal offence i…

Looking for a famous plastic surgeon in Singapore?
There's so much information available out there: social platforms, blogs, forums, reviews, comments, articles, and many more. It's impossible to keep track on all of them on your own, and it can be frustrating even just to try. It's time consuming, exhausting, and confusing.

How to Get Rid of Dark Circles Under Eyes - Professional Guide

Image
Introduction - Why another guide on dark circles under eyes? I used to be very impressed with the online world. Finally a level playing field where everyone can have access to information and knowledge globally. However, as I dive into the search engine results; it is clear that there are a lot of myths and misinformation being spread.


What do I mean by misinformation?

Misinterpreted science, cherry-picked studies, conspiracies, and alluring anecdotes are the tools that many pseudoscience peddlers use to sell their stories.

You have most likely read and tried those dark circles home remedies that don't work.
