This extremely lean body builder in his mid-50s looks extremely tired and haggard because of his scrawny face. This is the problem which many athletes face. Once they have single digit fat percentage, they appear very lean and toned, their muscles appear defined, their “6-packs” pop up. But, when you look at their faces, they appear old, tired and haggard! The problem with exercising is that you can’t order your body to burn fat from certain areas, but to spare fat in other areas. You will burn overall body fat, including the face, breasts, and buttocks! Fortunately, we now have the technology and skill of transferring fat. This is why this patient comes to Dr Arthur Tjandra of Elixir de Vie: to rejuvenate his face with fat injection! But, where to get fat from someone who is already so lean? Well, you need an extremely skilled and experienced surgeon to perform liposuction on someone who is extremely slim and lean!
