This female multi-sports athlete in her late-30s from Westfield, Massachusetts, decides to fly all the way to Medan to look for Dr Arthur Tjandra of Elixir de Vie after spending more than USD 50,000 in Beverly Hills for liposuction surgery on her abdomen and thighs, with result she does not like at all! Although she has flat tummy now, but since the surgeon did not perform 3-dimensional liposuction on her entire torso, she does not have beautiful hourglass figure. She also has some dents on her abdomen which result from over-aspiration and stuck-down scar tissues (adhesion). Her thighs are still as fat as before because the surgeon performed liposuction only on her inner thighs, but ignored the rest of her thighs. Worse still, she now has dents and grooves, as well as permanent skin pigmentation on her inner thighs!

She now visits Dr Arthur Tjandra of Elixir de Vie for liposuction on her arms and shoulders (excluding armpits and upper back), as well as lower back, flanks and frontal thighs. She is basically getting “mix and match” liposuction, instead of proper 3D liposuction. She understands that this is not going to give her the best result, but that is all she can afford after spending more than USD 50,000 in Beverly Hills! This is why it is very important to do your research well before deciding to part with your hard-earned money. When Dr Arthur Tjandra of Elixir de Vie performs liposuction on her love handles/lower back, he finds out that those areas are stuck down because of scar tissues, which were caused by her previous liposuction! He has to use brute force to go through all those scars.

This is a list of her case studies:

  1. Patient No. 505: Result of liposuction in Beverly Hills.
  2. Patient No. 505: Revision arms, flanks and lower back liposuction in Medan after liposuction in Beverly Hills.
