This Asian American woman in her mid-50s had 3 sessions of whole body liposuction surgeries performed by 3 different plastic surgeons within the last 2 years, before coming to Dr Arthur Tjandra of Elixir de Vie for revision liposuction.  Her first 2 surgeries, arms liposuction and thighs liposuction, were performed by plastic surgeons in Michigan and Ohio. She did not like the result of her arms liposuction at all as she believed that there was still plenty of fat which could have been aspirated. But when she went back to see her surgeon, he assured her that there was no more fat to be aspirated. He even said that she needed to gain at least 10 lbs in order for him to be able to perform liposuction on her arms, as they only consisted of muscles, with absolutely no fat! Ah, well……..

As the results of her previous 2 liposuction were awful, when she wanted to get her abdomen done, she decided to fly from Ohio, where she lives, to Bangkok, the capital of cheap cosmetic surgeries in Asia. As a matter of fact, she made that decision because she was drawn to the much cheaper surgery fees in Bangkok compared to in Medan! This happened a year ago. The result was disastrous! She actually read about Dr Arthur Tjandra of Elixir de Vie on the internet and has been following his case studies for a few years, but when she finally decided that it’s time for her to get the surgery done, she chose someone else. After all, America sounds more glamorous than Indonesia. Bangkok still sounds more advanced than Medan. Moreover, the 3rd surgeon who performed her abdominal liposuction in Bangkok, is a professor of plastic surgery, and he charged a lot cheaper than what Dr Arthur Tjandra of Elixir de Vie charged! Who does not want something good and cheap?

Finally, after having had 3 sessions of whole body liposuction done by supposedly more glamorous and more advanced surgeons in more developed countries, with cheaper surgery fee, she is convinced that the only person who can perform revision liposuction for her is the King of Liposuction in Medan. She also had fat transfer to her breasts during her previous liposuction sessions. As her left breast appears more drooping now, she requests to have fat aspirated from the lower part of her left breast to make it less heavy and hence, less drooping. Half way through the surgery, she decides that she also wants to have autologous fat grafting breasts augmentation.

Here is a list of her case studies:

  1. Patient No. 510: Result of conventional, non-3D arms liposuction in the United States
  2. Patient No. 510: Result of conventional, non-3D thighs liposuction in Ohio
  3. Patient No. 510: Abdominal liposuction disaster in Bangkok
