Shane Abucewicz-Tan

Aesthetic Physician
Abucewicz-Tan looks like the kind of man who could steal your girlfriend at the drop of a hat. It doesn’t help that he also seems more intent on learning about you than talking about himself. The Singaporean is a physician in the field of aesthetic medicine and devotes most of his waking hours to his work. What little time he has left to himself is reserved for his Porsche Boxster.
 
Can you tell us more about your career?
Yes, I’m a doctor and I focus on aesthetic dermatology. I’ve recently started a private practice with a friend, so that’s pretty exciting for me. I was born here, raised here, and up until a few years ago, was in public service over at Tan Tock Seng Hospital.
 
What is your biggest drive?
This is going to sound a little cheesy, but it’s my patients. The one thing that really puts the fervour in what I do is how patients come out. Apart from that, it’ll have to be my love for cars. I just came back from a drive with a driving club, actually. We went for a lobster meal in JB, and it was the first time I hit 250 kph. To be honest, that was a little scary (laughs).
 
Where does your self worth come from?

My family. I owe everything to my grandmother because she raised me, in the absence of my mom and my dad especially. And everything revolves around her.

 
What's the biggest takeaway from your upbringing?

There’s never too much you can sacrifice for your family.

 
What do you think is the most ethical way to give away $5 million dollars?
Well, if we were talking about a less-developed country, I would say building a proper education system. That’s the most importantant part: laying the right foundation so things can get going.
