Dr Arthur Tjandra of Elixir de Vie has never revealed to anyone that he has actually performed autologous fat grafting to his face 12 years ago. That was in 2008, when he just started his private practice at Elixir de Vie. But, as he recently performed another round of fat grafting procedure to his face and he is publishing the case study, he is digging out old photographs to show the transformation and procedures he has performed on himself over the last 2 decades. He could not have looked as youthful and fit as he is currently, in his late-40s, if he had not taken any effort at all to upkeep his appearance. It is extremely wrong for men to believe that only women need to upkeep their appearance!
A toddler who loses all his facial fat, no longer looks like a toddler.
The same goes to adults. When they lose facial fat, they look old, haggard and tired.
Year 2000 was a turning point in Dr Arthur Tjandra’s life, as that was the year he moved to Singapore for his post-graduate training and worked for Singapore General Hospital. Due to the extremely long working hours and stress, he gradually gained weight.
This was what he looked like, less than 2 years after he moved to Singapore, at the age of 30, in year 2001:
By 2003, he grew into a fat, ugly gorilla:
Although facial fat is important in maintaining youthful look, too much facial fat makes one looks like “chao” uncle!
and eventually, to:
and finally, to:
The above photograph was taken at Dr Arthur Tjandra’s first participation in an endurance race. That was his very first triathlon. One can see his transformation from an old, fat gorilla into a young, athletic man, within just ONE year! To find out how Dr Arthur Tjandra transformed himself, one can visit his website: ElixirdeVie.sg. Based on his own experience, and his vast knowledge as well as qualifications in sports medicine, sports nutrition, cosmetic surgery and anti-aging and regenerative medicine, he is going to launch Sugar Daddy “Age-less” Transformation in 2020.
As he took part in more and more races, his body became leaner and leaner. As his body became leaner and leaner, his facial fat started to disappear.
Those who are interested, can see all his race photos from his very first race in 2004, up to now, at ArthurTjandra.com.
By October 2008, one month before the opening of Elixir de Vie, Dr Arthur Tjandra’s body fat percentage dropped to 8%. That was the leanest point of his life. But, one cannot have the best of both worlds. One cannot have a lean body, without looking old, tired and haggard, as one’s facial fat burns away along with body fat, too.
Which look do you prefer?
Which one do you prefer?
They are both the same persons, at different stages of their lives, with different amount of facial fat.
Hence, Dr Arthur Tjandra of Elixir de Vie decided to perform autologous fat grafting to his face in December 2008, harvesting whatever fat which was still left on his already extremely lean and toned abs. In fact, he could hardly harvest any fat from his extremely lean body, hence he injected mostly blood into his face. But, remember, blood contains stem cells. These stem cells may transform into fat cells! Initially, all the injected fat disappeared. Everything seemed to be back to square one by a few months later. Dr Arthur Tjandra thought that the fat did not survive. He was wrong! By 2011-2012, all the fat appeared to suddenly grow out from nowhere!
Below was what Dr Arthur Tjandra looked like in 2012, 4 years after fat grafting. Notice how fresh he looked even as he crossed the finish line? By the way, this is his Personal Best timing for half marathon distance.
In 2015, with a Chinese tourist less than half his age, he met at a resort:
In 2016, with a Japanese tourist less than half his age, he met at a resort:
In 2018, with his beloved sister and niece:
And finally, in 2019, a few months before his second session of fat grafting, he still looked fine:
The last 3 photographs are taken from 2019 Queenstown Run and Canberra Marathon albums on ArthurTjandra.com, if you would like to verify.
Conclusion: You can’t have both good looking face and body at the same time. If you choose to have lean and toned body with very low fat percentage, by exercising and dieting, your face will definitely look old, sunken, tired and haggard. You will need autologous fat grafting to your face, if you would like to freshen up your look!
