This young woman in her mid-20s is not an ideal candidate for liposuction because she is obese. The problem with obese persons is that huge volume of fat needs to be removed in order to produce significant result, which may be dangerous. Another big problem which these patients face is loose skin! Think of your skin as a balloon. Once a balloon is blown up, it will never be the same balloon anymore even after the air is released. This is especially true if there are stretch marks on the skin, which means the skin’s underlying structure is permanently damaged. Skin with stretch marks is not as elastic as normal skin without stretch marks. Therefore, you cannot expect the skin to retract back after liposuction. For this reason, Dr Arthur Tjandra of Elixir de Vie usually rejects obese patients. However, when he learns that this patient has actually spent tens of thousands of dollars on fat freezing procedure, being made believe by the doctors she had previously seen before coming to Dr Arthur Tjandra of Elixir de Vie, that fat-freezing procedure could freeze away liters and liters of fat from her body, he decides to do something for her so that she does not lose faith in the medical profession. It is sad to see that there are still so many patients who are still so gullible, and there are many doctors who do not offer honest advice to their patients. You can read more about our explanation on fat-freezing elsewhere in other case studies within this blog, by going to the drop-down “Category” menu below.
