This Chinese Indonesian socialite from Surabaya in her mid-30s, who frequently graced Indonesia Tatler, was a fashion model more than a decade ago. Currently married to a Surabayan tycoon with 5 children, she completely lost her once-prized figure. Even though she spends 2 hours in the gym working out with a personal trainer every day, she seems unable to get rid of her stubborn fat. She has spent a fortune on various non-surgical treatments in Surabaya, before finally deciding to take the plunge to fly to Medan. No Surabayans or Jakartans with the right mind would ever think of flying to Medan, which they consider a small village, for surgery. Just like no Americans, Canadians, British, French, Germans, Russians, Ukrainians, Italians, Middle Eastern, Africans, Indians, mainland Chinese, Hong Kongers, Taiwanese, Singaporeans, Malaysians, Australians and New Zealanders with the right mind would ever think of going to Medan for liposuction and/or fat grafting procedures………….until they did! Those were the actual foreign nationals who decided to take the plunge to visit us during the last 13 years, many of whom came for revision surgeries, after unsatisfactory primary surgeries in their own countries!

This socialite plans to get whole body liposuction, targeting her arms/upper body during this first session. Due to her significant rectus diastasis and abdominal skin laxity, Dr Arthur Tjandra of Elixir de Vie advised her to get an abdominoplasty (tummy tuck) along with abdominal muscle repair, before getting 3D liposuction done on her torso.

She has posted a review about her surgery on RealSelf.Com: LOVE MY 3D Arm Liposuction Result by Doctor Arthur Tjandra, as well as her own blog: Kisah Sedot Lemak.

Other patients have also posted their reviews on RealSelf.Com: Review of Dr Arthur Tjandra on RealSelf.Com, including one fake review, and one unreasonable review from a patient who is ignorant of human anatomy.
