This patient in her early-30s had whole body liposuction done in Germany before flying all the way to Medan to look for Dr Arthur Tjandra of Elixir de Vie for a revision liposuction of her arms. The reason the result is not satisfactory is because her German surgeon did not perform 3D liposuction the way Dr Arthur Tjandra of Elixir de Vie does. Liposuction was performed on only a very small area over the lower back of her arms! The frontal, lateral and inner aspects of her arms were left untouched! So were the upper arms, shoulders, armpits and upper back! We have tried to educate prospective patients through the thousands of videos we have published on our now-defunct YouTube channel, as well as this Vlog, however, most patients still do not seem to understand the concept of 3-dimensional liposuction.

The strangest thing is that when she returned to her surgeon to express her unhappiness because she found that there were many areas which the surgeon did not perform liposuction on, she was advised that those were not fat, but muscles!

The patient has blogged about her experience: Under Construction – My Body Transformation Story.
