Video 1: Result of “fat-freezing” procedures on the arms.

untitled-1-copy

This pretty slim woman in her mid-30s spent a few thousand dollars (SGD) for fat-freezing procedures to her whole body, before calling it a quit and visits Dr Arthur Tjandra of Elixir de Vie (www.elixirdevie.sg) for a proper surgical procedure: Liposuction! It is human nature to always try non-surgical options for any procedure first, before finally going for a proper surgical intervention after all fail. But, as one goes through the journey of non-surgical procedures, followed eventually by surgical procedure when all fail, one often realizes that the amount of money one spends on non-surgical procedures, most of the time is as much as or even more than what one spends on surgical procedure later on!

She shares her experience here: https://maggiemedan.wordpress.com/

What is fat-freezing procedure? To put in simply, it is a procedure where extreme coldness is applied on the skin in the hope of killing the fat cells underneath the skin. Does it work? Well, it may work on very small area of the body. It may work if what you try to get rid of is 20 or 30 cc of fat. However, this procedure is very unpredictable, and it definitely cannot be used to remove large amount of fat or to sculpt the body, the way liposuction surgery can. The fact is Dr Arthur Tjandra of Elixir de Vie (www.elixirdevie.sg) managed to remove more than 1 liter of fat from this patient’s arms with liposuction after she has gone for multiple sessions of fat-freezing procedures on her whole body, including her arms. Does she seriously believe that fat-freezing procedure can freeze away more than 1 L of fat to “death” even with multiple sessions of treatments? Perhaps if she had used her common sense to ask the question, “What would happen to 1 L of dead fat cells left underneath the skin?” she would not have whipped out her credit card and spent a few thousand dollars so easily. With liposuction, you suck out the fat to be discarded. With fat freezing procedure, you freeze the fat to death, and leave the dead cells behind underneath the skin. First of all, is it even possible to freeze large amount of fat cells to death? Secondly, if this 1 or 2 liters of fat is being brought to the liver, the main organ which detoxifies all waste materials and debris, won’t the person’s liver drown in fat and the person die of fatty liver?

We have uploaded this video to YouTube: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=m98twLlF6Bk, but it seems that YouTube has removed it. It is a video which shows a pair of arms, and breasts which are covered by surgical tapes. Nothing which can be considered pornography! However, the title is very provocative: “Result of fat-freezing procedure. Does it work?” It is perhaps due to this provocative title, that some major forces have lobbied YouTube to remove our videos!

Video 4: Awake syringe liposuction of arms under local anesthesia by Dr Arthur Tjandra of Elixir de Vie.

untitled-4-copy

This video shows how liposuction is done with just a syringe under local anesthesia. The patient’s face and all other parts of her body, except her arms, were fully covered. We have uploaded the video to YouTube: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=vWhnXNsrIMM . However, YouTube deems it as pornography. A woman must not reveal any part of her body except her eyes, in public. Revealing arms is considered pornography! Her arms should be covered with black cloth!

Video 5: Result of left arm liposuction after failed “fat freezing” procedures.

untitled-5-copy

This video shows the result of left arm liposuction by Dr Arthur Tjandra of Elixir de Vie (www.elixirdevie.sg), comparing right arm (before liposuction) with left arm (after liposuction). The video has been uploaded to YouTube: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Ss9l8xAN9Ng . However, a woman should not show any part of her body besides her eyes, in public. As we show her arms blatantly without covering them with a piece of black cloth, YouTube has deemed it as pornography and has deleted the video.

Video 6: Result of arms liposuction. Can you “freeze” more than 1.6 liters of fat with “fat-freezing” device?

untitled-6-copy

This video shows the result of arms liposuction by Dr Arthur Tjandra of Elixir de Vie (www.elixirdevie.sg). More than 1.6 L of fat was removed from both arms. One should be using some common sense when sold the idea that “fat freezing” could “freeze” all unwanted fat in one’s body. This is the fat lipo-ed from arms alone. What about her tummy? What about her thighs? What happens to the body if, given the benefit of doubt, the fat-freezing device is really so powerful that it could “freeze” liters and liters of fat away, and this jugs of fat is left under the skin? How is your body going to handle such large amount of dead fat cells?

We have uploaded the video to YouTube: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=IcxptniCCv0, but YouTube has again deemed this videos as inappropriate and removed it. We cannot help but asking, what is wrong with showing a jug of fat? It is very obvious now that all parties whose business may be affected if prospective patients watch our videos and learn something from them, may have lobbied YouTube to remove all our videos. Why should YouTube do that? Remember that YouTube’s revenues come from advertisers, not from contributors of videos. But, they forget that without contributors of videos who provide contents for them, YouTube is nothing!

Video 7: Result of arms liposuction, the very next day.

untitled-8-copy

This video shows how beautiful the result of arms liposuction performed by Dr Arthur Tjandra of Elixir de Vie (www.elixirdevie.sg). Could this result be achieved with fat-freezing procedures? Fat-freezing procedures may work on small areas, when only tens of cc of fat is involved, NOT when liters and liters of fat needs to be removed!

The video has been uploaded to YouTube: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ggAaaynCc9o

Video 8: Result of arms liposuction, 2.5 months later

untitled-1-copy

This patient returns for thighs liposuction and autologous fat grafting buttocks augmentation 2.5 months after her arms liposuction. This video shows the beautiful result of her arms liposuction, performed by Dr Arthur Tjandra of Elixir de Vie (www.elixirdevie.sg), 2.5 months earlier. One has to note that complete healing with full resolution of swelling takes at least 6 months. But, even half way through to complete healing, we can already appreciate the beautiful work Dr Arthur Tjandra of Elixir de Vie (www.elixirdevie.sg) has done. It is too bad that the world has become more and more conservative and religious that videos of cosmetic surgeries like this are deemed pornography even in countries like America! If you visit Facebook and YouTube HQs today, you will probably see that all their staff are covered from heads to toes in black cloths! Only their eyes can be seen! We are not at all surprised if this is the case! As a result of this, we have no choice, but just post screen shots taken from our videos. All patients who come to us for surgeries and sign photographic/videographic consent forms, however, will be provided all videos taken before, during and after their surgeries, and are encouraged to post their videos to any platform and provide the links to us. When we receive these links, we will provide the links in the relevant case studies. We also encourage all our patient to blog about their experience. But, please do not forget to provide the URL to us when you blog. We realize that many patients have blogged, but not provided the URLs of their blogs to us. We have compiled a list of known blogs here: http://www.elixirdevie.sg/blog.html

Video 9: Result of arms liposuction, 2.5 months later.

untitled-3-copy

This video shows result of arms liposuction performed by Dr Arthur Tjandra of Elixir de Vie (www.elixirdevie.sg), viewed from the back. One has to understand that to achieve a beautiful result like this, not only liposuction has to be performed on the arms, but also the shoulders, the armpits, as well as the upper back. This is what Dr Arthur Tjandra of Elixir de Vie (www.elixirdevie.sg) calls the 3-dimensional liposculpting, which is a hallmark of all liposuction surgeries he performs. On this particular patient, liposuction was not performed on her upper back as she did not have significant fat there. However, if one has thick upper back fat and this is not taken out with liposuction, this thick layer of fat may bulge out above a bikini top or a tube dress, which presents very unsightly sight. Unfortunately, as it is behind us, most of us do not realize how awful we look from the back. The same goes to saddle bags which cause the buttocks to sag. How many of us actually take pictures of our bottoms when we are wearing those tight jeans, not realizing how ugly our buttocks look like?
