This former model and flight attendant in her mid-30s, a mother of 2 teenage children, returns to Dr Arthur Tjandra of Elixir de Vie ( for 3-dimensional abdominal liposuction, 3 months after her thighs liposuction. She has previously spent tens of thousands of dollars (SGD) for whole body “fat freezing” procedure, but is completely dismayed by the result! During this second session, Dr Arthur Tjandra of Elixir de Vie ( also performs autologous fat grafting buttocks augmentation/Brazilian butt lift. The patient is ecstatic with the result of this abdominal liposuction, despite the fact that she has significant rectus diastasis (splitting/weakening of abdominal muscles) and stretch marks from her previous two pregnancies! Another masterpiece is created! She regrets not having found Dr Arthur Tjandra of Elixir de Vie ( much earlier!

This patient returns to Dr Arthur Tjandra of Elixir de Vie (  3 months later to have her second session of liposuction. This time round,  it is performed on her abdomen; not just her abdomen, but her entire torso. There is a lot of loose, wrinkling skin on her thighs as her thighs were pretty huge before liposuction. Dr Arthur Tjandra of Elixir de Vie ( managed to remove 3.5 L of fat from her thighs! She has been advised to wear post-op compression garments for a few months to help her skin retract back nicely, but she only wore them intermittently during the first 1 month post-operatively! A surgeon can do his best to perform a surgery, however a patient also needs to play her role during the recovery period! A combination of what a surgeon and a patient do determine the final outcome of a surgery! There are also still a lot of greyish pigmentation on the skin, which are expected after bruises disappear, and may take a few months to resolve! There is still pretty much swelling after 3 months, hence her thighs will be much smaller than this when all the swelling subsides approximately 6 to 9 months after liposuction!


Dr Arthur Tjandra of Elixir de Vie ( explains how important it is to remove the “love handles” to produce a nice arch of the lower back, which will give rise to a much perkier and rounder hips and buttocks. He goes on to compare his own lower back arch and buttocks with patient’s! With the current existing “love handles”, the patient’s hips appear squarish and manly! Once Dr Arthur Tjandra of Elixir de Vie ( performs liposuction on her entire torso, one can see the transformation from squarish, manly hips to become more womanly, curvaceous hips and hour-glass figure!
