This Briton in his early-50s had gynecomastia surgery and liposuction done on his chest 9 months ago. The result was disappointing, as he was left with a lot of irregularities and sunken areas. He flies from London to Medan to look for Dr Arthur Tjandra of Elixir de Vie for corrective surgery. Although the gynecomastia surgery was pretty successful, as all the breasts glands have been removed, there was gross over-removal of fat, resulting in multiple cavities. On top of that, a lot of adhesion scars form, which caused the skin to be stuck down to the underlying muscles, resulting in waviness and irregularities. The adhesions were probably the result of heat device used during liposuction. The patient had no idea what device was used to perform his liposuction. As the layer of fat in a man’s chest is typically not that thick, which also means that there is not much space for error, liposuction on this small areas should have been performed with just a syringe, like what Dr Arthur Tjandra of Elixir de Vie always advocates. The adhesions are so bad that Dr Arthur Tjandra of Elixir de Vie has to use a lot of force to break thorough the scars, which obviously causes a lot of pain and trauma.
