This young African princess in her early 30s comes to Dr Arthur Tjandra of Elixir de Vie for arms liposuction. Although she is very slim and lean, she still has flabby arms. She has the typical “wings”, a term which Dr Arthur Tjandra coins to describe the flaring mid-arms of most women. This is especially obvious when viewed from an oblique (45 degrees) angle. Although she has well-developed gluteal muscles as she is an avid runner, her buttocks, nevertheless, still appear sagging. “Granny butt” is another term Dr Arthur Tjandra of Elixir de Vie coins to describe sagging buttocks due to a combination of “hip dips” and saddle bags. On normal circumstances, Dr Arthur Tjandra would remove the saddle bags. But, as this patient is not too keen to get liposuction performed on her thighs, Dr Arthur Tjandra of Elixir de Vie injects fat into the sunken areas, instead, transforming her granny buttocks to bubble buttocks!
