“Doc, why is there a horizontal line on my tummy?” this male patient asked Dr Arthur Tjandra of Elixir de Vie when he returned 8 months later. He appeared pretty angry as he thought that it was a complication of over-suctioning. It was not. Dr Arthur Tjandra of Elixir de Vie explained that almost all people with sedentary lifestyle or are office worker who spend most of their time sitting, especially when they do not sit up straight, but hunch forward, have this line on their abdomens. In his case, this line becomes even more obvious after liposuction as his rectus abdominis muscles become more prominent after the fat covering the muscles have been removed. Dr Arthur Tjandra of Elixir de Vie showed his own abdominal muscles to deliver his points.

As this patient is still not too happy with the result of the previous liposuction done 8 months ago, Dr Arthur Tjandra of Elixir de Vie performs a touch-up liposuction for him. Does he have to pay? Yes! Dr Arthur Tjandra of Elixir de Vie does not offer FREE touch-up liposuction for any of his patients. Especially that in this case, it is very obvious that the video taken the next day after his abdominal liposuction 8 months ago showed an extremely lean and toned V-shaped abdomen with no more love handles, even with all the swelling after liposuction, a far-cry from his abdomen now, which has obviously gained some fat. It is very important to still watch one’s diet after liposuction, because existing fat cells can still grow bigger, if they are fed with extra calories!
