Dr Zion Chan completed his medical degree at the University of Adelaide.
After internship, amongst a large competitive field, Dr Chan was accepted into the surgical training program of the Royal Australasian College of Surgeons (RACS). Whilst in training, realising his special interest in cosmetic surgery, Dr Chan undertook extra instructional courses in rhinoplasty, facial anatomy and research to better equip himself for his intended cosmetic surgical career.
As part of his training, Dr Chan gained experience through the Department of Ear Nose and Throat, General Surgery, Urology, Orthopaedics, Vascular and Plastic Surgery. Whilst with the Department of Plastic Surgery Dr Chan gained experience in the management of burns, microsurgery, tendon and nerve repairs of hand injuries, and plastic reconstruction.
The training in the RACS is second to none in the world. Australian surgeons are recognised and well respected worldwide as their work is of the highest standard and quality.
Since the College of Surgeons does not provide training for cosmetic surgery as a speciality, Dr Chan therefore continued his training at the Australian College of Cosmetic Surgery (ACCS)
The Australian College of Cosmetic Surgery (ACCS) provides fellowship training specifically in cosmetic surgery. Dr Chan completed 2 years of required training in the ACCS.
Dr Chan proceeded to a two year professional association and fellowship with Dr Eng Peng Tan, a renowned Cosmetic Plastic Surgeon. At the time he is one of the top leading surgeons for breast augmentation and rhinoplasty in Australia. Dr Tan’s specialty and ideology in the art, skill and technique of breast augementation and rhinoplasty has been adopted by Dr Chan. Dr Tan retired in 2008 and conferred his practice to Dr Chan.
For continuing development, Dr Chan has a formal tea drinking session with Dr Tan every month. The wide topics of discussion range from fishing, life philosophies to current clinical practice and management in cosmetic surgery. Dr Tan continues to share his vast 35 years of surgical experiences with his only protege, Dr Chan.
Dr Chan was accepted as a Member of the American Academy of Cosmetic Surgery (AACS), the gold standard body representative of cosmetic surgery in America for the last 30 years. The continuing education the academy provides is exemplary.
Dr Chan was also accepted as an Associate Fellow of the American Society of Cosmetic Breast Surgery (ASCBS). This body solely specialises in cosmetic breast surgery and only accepts doctors who have performed more than 100 breast augmentations.
Dr Chan lives and breathes cosmetic surgery. This is his passion. He is devoted to the art of breast enlargement (Boob Job) and rhinoplasty (Nose Job) and understands both the physical and emotional transformation it may provide.
He places great importance on keeping up to date with the latest techniques and technologies, by travelling abroad to visit recognised clinics and attend international conferences. He is also involved with applied surgical research and offers presentations at College Meetings.
Dr Chan enjoys competitive soccer on weekends. He competes in a regular soccer league as a striker and scores frequently for his team. Dr Chan enjoys his sports as this adds a happy balance to his lifestyle. He is equally accomplished on and off field..
“Empathy and understanding of the patient is of the utmost importance to my service.”
