She now returns to Dr Arthur Tjandra of Elixir de Vie for another liposuction on her entire thighs! She already had thighs liposuction done by Dr Arthur Tjandra of Elixir de Vie, 1.5 years ago, so why another liposuction? Because she does not think they are slim enough! And yes, she has to pay the full amount again. This is what we call a realistic patient. She understands that there is a safe limit of how much fat can be removed in any one session of liposuction. Usually, Dr Arthur Tjandra of Elixir de Vie limits this to 3 liters or slightly more. Hence, if you have 5 to 6 liters of excess fat in any particular areas of your body, you simply have to undergo 2 sessions of liposuction in order to remove all the fat. Why not perform mega-liposuction, where more than 5 liters of fat is removed, like what is routinely practiced in the United States? Because, we have not had a single fatality in the last 15 years, and we do not wish you to be our first fatality case! We have come across many patients who were the size of a King Kong, but unrealistically wished to look like Cinderella after one session of liposuction! This is why, we screen all our patients. We normally reject overweight and obese patients. On case by case basis, we sometimes accept patients who are over-weight, but realistic with their expectations. That is why we usually ask a prospective patient what she wishes to achieve. The moment she says she wants to look like Cincerella or Snow White, we reject her right away. They need to understand that Arthur Tjandra is not David Copperfield who can turn them from a King Kong to a Cinderella with just one session of liposuction! By the way, if you are one of those patients who feels offended because Dr Arthur Tjandra likes to compare the size of your thighs or arms with those of a gorilla or king kong, please feel free to look for other surgeons who will suck up to you and tell you how you look like Princess Leia in your face, only to laugh at you behind your back and say you look like Darth Vader! Each surgeon has his own style. If you do not like his style, do NOT go to him! If you are big, you have to accept the fact that you are big. That’s why you come to see him! If you have granny butts or meatball knees, you just have to listen to him rambling about your granny butts or meatball knees, because you know that at the end of the day, he is going to transform them into bubble butts or tapered, defined knees! What you do not want is you have granny butts, but your surgeon tells you that you have great butts, because his wife looks worse than you. Anyone, who, in his opinion looks better than his wife, is considered good-looking, hence nothing needs to be fixed. Either that, or he does not know how to fix it!
When you build a house and you hire an architect, do you look for one who is extremely fussy and critical, and goes into every single small detail, or do you hire one who is fine with anything? If you choose the first, why would you do otherwise with your own body?
