The issue stems from different perception of beauty between Dr Arthur Tjandra and his patients. So far, he has had 3 complaints about the results of his arms liposuction, which he actually loves and labels as his masterpieces in his video case studies! One of those patients posted her negative review on RealSelf.com. As an athlete, Dr Arthur Tjandra loves muscle definitions. Within East Asian communities (Chinese, Japanese, Korean) however, muscle definitions are frowned upon, and skinny fat is considered beautiful, instead. Unfortunately, Dr Arthur Tjandra practices in South East Asia, and his patients are predominantly ethnic Chinese women, who may find muscle definitions unappealing. If you do not like muscle definitions and would still like to engage Dr Arthur Tjandra for your liposuction surgery, please state it clearly during pre-operative consultation. Otherwise, Dr Arthur Tjandra performs high-definition lipo-sculpting by default! The surgery fees, however, are the same, whether or not high-definition lipo-sculpting is being performed. It is actually much easier to perform liposuction only, without sculpting muscle definitions.
For those who are uninitiated, liposuction is different from liposculpting. In a liposuction surgery procedure, a surgeon simply aspirates fat. In a liposculpting procedure, however, besides aspirating fat out, a surgeon actually sculpts the body to allow muscle definitions to show. This is an advanced liposuction technique which only the experts and very experienced surgeons who have performed thousands of liposuction surgeries, can perform. In order to be able to sculpt, a surgeon needs to know the human anatomy in great precision. There are many courses which teach human anatomy, especially female human anatomy, to liposuction surgeons, because the truth is, even surgeons who offer liposuction surgeries may not know human anatomy well, especially the musculoskeletal system! That is the reason you can find so many courses which teach muscle definitions to liposuction surgeons, such as this one:
Therefore, go through as many case studies as you could on this Vlog, before making up your mind. At the same time, shop elsewhere. Ultimately, in order to avoid making a mistake which you may regret for the rest of your life, look for someone whose works you truly love. Go through all his works, preferably in video format, as pictures can be easily Photoshopped! Look for a surgeon who defines beauty the way you want it. Look for a surgeon who sees beauty the way you see it! If you love skinny fat, you may want to avoid Dr Arthur Tjandra altogether, because as an athlete, Dr Arthur Tjandra hates skinny fat! Remember, unless you specifically request to have a significant layer of fat retained in order to hide your muscles, Dr Arthur Tjandra performs high-definition lipo-sculpting by default, which may ultimately reveal all your muscle definitions! Unfortunately, a lot of women wrongly believe that women do not have muscles, only men do. In the event that you did not already know, yes, women, too, have muscles! Both men and women have muscles! The reason you hardly see any woman with muscle definitions in Asia, regardless of how slim they are, is not because they do not have muscles. It is because their muscles are all covered by a thick layer of fat! This is what we call “skinny fat”.
