This hardcore athlete is a marathon runner and triathlete. Despite her intensive training, she still had stubborn butterfly arms, bulging armpits, bulging lower abdomen and love handles. Like most athlete, her breasts shrunk because of her training. She came to look for Dr Arthur Tjandra of Elixir de Vie three years ago for autologous fat grafting breasts and buttocks augmentation, during which Dr Arthur Tjandra harvested fat from multiple areas: arms, armpits, lower abdomen, love handles and inner thighs!

Her case study has been previously published on our YouTube channel. However, as she now returns for her second session, 3 years after her first session, we are re-publishing her case study on this new blog, so that one can compare the videos taken 3 years before and 3 years later, side by side.

Video 2: An extremely slim endurance athlete with flabby arms!! Almost ALL women have flabby butterfly arms, no matter how slim and fit they are!

Video 3: Awake syringe liposuction under local anesthesia.
