Dr Arthur Tjandra of Elixir de Vie started taking part in endurance races in 2004. By December 2019, he has taken part in approximately 60 races. He has burnt off most of the fat he injected in his face back in 2008. Luckily, as he approaches 50 years of age, his metabolism slows down, and hence, despite all the training and races, he still has significant fat in his tummy and love handles. This time round, Dr Arthur Tjandra of Elixir de Vie performs liposuction only on his left love handle, and injects the fat into his mid-face.
The problem with dieting and exercising is that you cannot simply “spot-reduce”. You cannot order your body to burn fat only from any one particular area, and preserve fat in other areas. That is why most of the time, athletes appear haggard, tired and old, as they burn off all their facial fat. Female athletes often are flat-chested with equally flat buttocks, as the body burns fat in their breasts and buttocks. And just like Dr Arthur Tjandra, even the most serious athletes may still find themselves with stubborn fat in their abdomen and love handles! Instead of choosing to burn fat in the abdomen and love handles, the body chooses to burn fat in the face and breasts! Luckily, there is always autologous fat grafting which comes to the rescue for deflated face, breasts and buttocks. But, of course, one still needs to look for the most experienced surgeon to achieve good result! By end of 2019, Dr Arthur Tjandra of Elixir de Vie has performed some 3,500 cases of autologous fat grafting to breasts and buttocks, and more than 2,000 cases of autologous fat grafting to face (forehead, mid-face, temples, nose bridge and chin).
This was what Dr Arthur Tjandra looked like when he was 29 years of age:
By end of 2008, at the age of 36, after participation of close to 20 races, he appeared like this:
He performed autologous fat grafting to his mid-face in December 2008. The result was not immediately apparent. The fat gradually grew. By mid-2019, at the age of 47, his facial fat was still maintaining pretty well:
However, by December 2019, at the age of 47, after completion of approximately 60 races since 2004, he appeared haggard, tired and old:
He performs liposuction on his left love handle and injects the fat into his mid-face. This are the results from Post-operative Day 1 to Day 6:
Let’s compare pre-op and post-op photographs again:
