This slim and shapely Canadian woman in her late-20s flies all the way from Montreal to Medan to get arms liposuction by Dr Arthur Tjandra of Elixir de Vie. It is very rare for someone who is already so slim to get liposuction done in Canada. Two-thirds of the population in North America are either overweight or obese, and these are the people who usually go for liposuction. However, as Dr Arthur Tjandra of Elixir de Vie points out, it is those who are already within their ideal range of weight, who can benefit from liposuction and obtain great result! One must remember that liposuction a mere sculpting tool to remove stubborn fat and sculpt one’s body into desirable shape. It is not a method to lose weight! If one is 10 or 20 kg overweight, it is impossible to aspirate 10 to 20 liters of fat! One may die as the result! Besides, one has to always remember that the skin which has been stretched to accommodate so much fat, may not be able to retract back after large volume liposuction or drastic weight loss. As surgeons in North America hardly perform liposuction on slim patients with “normal” weight, this patient does not want to take any chance. She chooses to fly half the world to look for Dr Arthur Tjandra of Elixir de Vie in Medan!
