This 68-year-old Chinese Singaporean medical doctor came to Dr Arthur Tjandra of Elixir de Vie for autologous fat grafting facial rejuvenation. In the old days, the approach to aging face is to perform surgical face lifting. This is an outdated approach which does not address the main issue in an aging face, which is loss of mid-face fat. The result of such face lift surgery without mid-face volume replacement can be seen in the face of Nancy Pelosi and Joe Biden. Their faces appear unnaturally tight, yet lack mid-face volume.
Take a look at 2 photographs of Nancy Pelosi, taken in August 2020, below. Please note how wasted her face is, with obvious loss of mid-face volume. However, instead of volume replacement, her surgeon focused on just tightening her face, hence creating very unnatural “pulled” effect on her face.
Nancy Pelosi’s eyes also appear extremely sunken and “skeletonized” which can be easily addressed with fat injection into the eye lids, as shown below:
By comparing Nancy Pelosi’s photographs above, with a photograph of her in her youth below, it is very obvious that what makes a person appear youthful is full cheeks/mid-face. She loses all her mid-face volume as she ages. Hence, instead of pulling up her face to make the face appear tight, the priority should be to replace the volume loss first!
Now. let’s take a look at Joe Biden’s most recent photograph when he received Covid-19 vaccine just yesterday. Unlike Nancy Pelosi who can hide her surgical face lift incision scars with her hair, Joe Biden’s face lift incision scar is very obvious, located just in front of his ear, with his mid- and lower-face skin being pulled up towards his ear. His face appears unnaturally tight and pulled, a tell tale sign of surgical face lift.
After looking at the results of facial rejuvenation of 2 of American most powerful politicians above, most likely performed by top and very expensive plastic surgeons, let’s take a look at the result of facial rejuvenation with different approach performed by Dr Arthur Tjandra of Elixir de Vie on this 68-year-old Chinese Singaporean surgeon. Unlike American surgeons who prioritize “tightening”, Dr Arthur Tjandra of Elixir de Vie emphasizes more on volume replacement.
Dr Arthur Tjandra of Elixir de Vie performed the first session of fat injection into this patient’s mid-face during the time before he started recording video of his surgeries and posting them on YouTube. The patient returned for a second session of fat grafting 1.5 years later. Video recording was done during his second session.
