This young woman in her mid-20s came to Dr Arthur Tjandra of Elixir de Vie for liposuction of her gigantic thighs 11 months ago during which more than 3 liters of fat was aspirated, and liposuction of her abdomen just 5 months ago. She is now back for arms liposuction.

She has blogged about her experience: My experience having lipo at Dr Arthur’s clinic in Medan.

In the last 5 months since she had her abdominal liposuction done, she has gained 4 kg of weight! One can see that her thighs appeared slimmer 6 months after liposuction, compared to now, 11 months after liposuction. Her abdomen also appears bigger now, compared to immediately after liposuction 5 months ago. The good thing is that the beautiful shape of both thighs and abdomen is still retained as Dr Arthur Tjandra of Elixir de Vie has performed 3-dimensional liposuction for her. One should not think that one can never get fat anymore after liposuction. Although it is true that the fat cells have been permanently reduced as they have been taken out of the body, unlike exercising and dieting where fat cells merely shrink, but the remaining fat cells can still grow bigger if they are fed with extra calories. Therefore, one still has to watch one’s calorie intake even after liposuction.
