This woman in her early-40s flies all the way from Tokyo to Medan to look for Dr Arthur Tjandra of Elixir de Vie for liposuction of her gigantic thighs, as well as autologous fat grafting to her mid-face for facial rejuvenation. Restoring mid-face volume is extremely important in maintaining youthful look. In the past, face lift was the gold standard in facial rejuvenation surgery. However, yanking up the face without restoring loss of volume may produce very unnatural look. As a matter of fact, in most people under the age of 60 or even 70, face lift surgery may be unnecessary. All they need is a simple facial volume restoration with fat injection.


The following photographs of the same person when she was a young teenage girl and as a matured woman illustrates best the importance of facial fat in maintaining and restoring a youthful look.
