This woman in her early 30s first visited Dr Arthur Tjandra of Elixir de Vie 2 years ago to get arms and double chin/neck liposuction done. After seeing the result, she got hooked, and has been returning every few months to eventually get liposuction done on her whole body. She also had 1 session of autologous fat grafting breasts augmentation during her second visit, 2 months after her first visit. The videos below show the result of her autologous fat grafting breasts augmentation 1 year and 10 months later, which shows that almost 100% of the injected fat survives, 1 year and 10 months later!
Below are the links to all the previous posts we have published on this patient:
She now returns to Dr Arthur Tjandra of Elixir de Vie to get the final session of her whole body liposuction/transformation series, which is liposuction of her outer half of thighs (hips, lower buttocks/saddle bags, outer thighs and back of thighs). During the 3rd session, although the title is “Inner thighs liposuction”, her frontal thighs, as well as knees were lipo-ed, along with her inner thighs. This is the concept of 3-dimensional liposuction, without which, the result would not be good and appear lop-sided, or worse still, appear like being bitten off by wild animals!
This patient has blogged about her experience: My Liposuction Journal.

Take home lesson: for patients with gigantic thighs who would like to split the thighs liposuction into 2 separate sessions, it is better to get 3D liposuction of the entire thighs done over 2 sessions, rather than getting half thighs done each session over 2 sessions. Although the total amount of fat aspirated over those 2 sessions may be the same, a sudden large volume liposuction from one particular area may leave behind a lot of loose skin, and there is high chance that the skin may not be able to retract back. In this particular case, 2 liters of fat was aspirated out from the patient’s inner half of thighs during the previous session of liposuction, followed by another 2 liters of fat from her outer half of thighs during this session. Because of the sudden loss of volume, she is left excess dangling wrinkling skin. If she had opted to get only 1 liter out from her inner thighs during the previous session, followed by another 1 liter during this session 5 months later, there is more time for the skin to react and retract back, compared to a sudden loss of volume of 2 liters.
