Dr Lim graduated with an MBBS from the University of Sydney in 1966 and has vast experience in family medicine, both in Australia and overseas. This has taught him a lot about seeing the patient as a whole rather than through a tunnel vision. Since embarking on a career in cosmetic medicine some 25 years ago, Dr Lim has acquired a commanding experience in a wide variety of cosmetic procedures.
The Ashbrooke Cosmetic Surgery where he practises has two locations – one in Mosman and the other in Parramatta. Dr Lim is well known for his expertise in Body Shaping using the technique called Tumescent Liposuction under Local Anaesthetic. The patient is under light sedation and relaxed but not totally asleep. This allows the patient to move around while on the operating table thus allowing the doctor to reach the awkward parts of the body more easily resulting in the best shape possible. This is the most up to date method used by the majority of Liposuction Specialists around the world. As a result of his expertise in this field he has been regularly asked to train the other doctors in Body Shaping.
He is also well known for his skill in Fillers and Muscle Relaxing Injections as well as in Sclerotherapy. As a result he is also called upon to train other doctors in these fields by leading companies in the cosmetic industry like Allergan, Merz & Galderma.
A strong believer in, and advocate of, promoting the benefit of a strong united body to represent cosmetic doctors, Dr Lim is very involved with The Australasian College of Cosmetic Surgery (ACCS) and is not only a Fellow of the Faculty of Medicine of the ACCS ( FFMACCS ) but also a council member and current treasurer. He was the Past President of the ACCS. He is now the Chairperson of the ACCS Liposuction Committee which looks after its Liposuction / Liposculpture training program. He is also a mentor for the Surgical and Medical Registrars of the ACCS and has convened the college’s annual Liposuction Workshops since 2004. He has been largely responsible for the establishment of the ACCS Charitable Foundation through which the college encourages its members and the cosmetic industry to donate funds towards deserving causes in the community. He runs regular training workshops in the technique of injecting the full range of filler products and Muscle Relaxants of Allergan, Merz and Galderma.
For all the services he has given to the college he has been awarded a Life Membership in the ACCS.
