One year after her initial liposuction with Dr Arthur Tjandra of Elixir de Vie, this mother of 4 children in her mid-30s returns for the third and final session of her whole body transformation series. For this final session, Dr Arthur Tjandra of Elixir de Vie performs revision liposuction on her arms, as well as jowls and neck/double chins. He reiterates how crucial it is to perform 3-dimensional liposuction to achieve good result. This woman ends up with drumstick-looking arms because the surgeon who performed her arms liposuction previously had performed liposuction on only her arms, but not her shoulders, armpits and upper back! All these areas are one continuity which cannot be separated. This is another example of unsatisfactory result caused by cherry-picking, either by the surgeon, or voluntarily by the patient herself. As she has gained some weight in the last 1 year, Dr Arthur Tjandra of Elixir de Vie also performs touch-up liposuction on her abdomen. One can see how beautiful, big and firm her breasts are now. The fat retention exceeds 90% after 1 year!

The series of videos from her third session has been uploaded to YouTube in October 2016, however, YouTube has decided to delete all of them because they do not want patients and the general public to learn that liposuction performed with a cheap 5-dollar syringe can achieve much better result than, and can even be used to correct result of an ultrasound-assisted liposuction device which costs hundreds of thousand of dollars! After all, YouTube does not want you to know that ultimately, the result of a surgery, especially a cosmetic surgery like liposuction, does not rely on machines, but the skill and experience of the surgeon! Obviously some people have lobbied YouTube to shut us down to prevent us from disseminating this information and make the public more educated! After all, liposuction surgery is the most popular plastic surgery in the United States and in the world, an industry which is worth billions of dollars in the United States alone! An industry which many business people and liposuction devices manufacturers cannot afford to lose out on! Look around you and read advertisements on liposuction. Surgeons offering this service and manufacturers selling liposuction devices all promise fantastic results based on the technology their machines work on. They emphasize on technology rather than skill. But, Dr Arthur Tjandra of Elixir de Vie, has been telling patients otherwise. Dr Arthur Tjandra has been advising patients that result of liposuction surgeries does not rely on what device a surgeon use, but rather, on the skill, expertise and experience of the surgeon! He has been promoting the use of cheap plastic syringes to perform liposuction since the mid-2000s because of the extremely safe profile of this method. He has performed close to 10,000 liposuction surgeries with a mere plastic syringe in the last 10 years. He backs his claims by publishing thousands of case studies and results of syringe liposuction on his website, YouTube channel, and now his blog. He shows ultimate transparency by publishing videos of every single steps of his surgeries, from pre-operative marking, until the completion of surgeries, as well as follow-ups, months and years later, on his YouTube channel. All his patients who sign videographic consent get a set of videos taken before, during and after their surgeries! This shows just how transparent and confident Dr Arthur Tjandra is, with his works! An act which threatens the survival of many surgeons as well as liposuction devices manufacturers. An act which prompts these people to lobby YouTube to shut down our YouTube channel. After we appealed, Elixir de Vie YouTube channel was reinstated, however, we found that most of our videos have been deleted by YouTube. That is why we have started afresh this new blog. We cannot, however, re-publish all the cases we have published on our YouTube channel, on the new blog. There are a few thousand videos which we have published on our YouTube channel from Case 1 to Case 398. We are starting with Case 399 on this new blog.
