Case 170 Video 5: Revision for botched thighs liposuction
This 20-year old girl had thighs liposuction done in a renowned clinic which heavily advertises itself as where the girls bands go to transform their bodies. After spending tens of thousands of dollars for supposedly a 3-dimensional liposuction, she gets a pair of weirdly-shaped thighs. Out of despair she searched for surgeons who could rectify the problem as her original surgeon refused to entertain her anymore, after telling her that he had taken out all the fat in her thighs. She finally ended up with Dr Arthur Tjandra of Elixir de Vie Indonesia (www.elixirdevie.sg). In this and the next videos, we show that only her mid-inner thighs were lipo-ed, as well as the middle part of the back of thighs. The rest of the thighs were left untouched. She was left with “hour-glass” thighs as the upper inner thighs and knees were not lipo-ed. It was nothing near 3-dimensional sculpting! Dr Arthur Tjandra of Elixir de Vie (www.elixirdevie.sg) performed a revision surgery and sculpted the entire lower body, from hips down to knees, as well as the entire circumference of the thighs, in 3-dimensional manner and show you the immediate result. Remember that there is significant swelling immediately after surgery, and since final result can’t be seen until 6-12 months later, the final result is obviously going to be much better than the immediate post-surgery result. Having said that, a successful liposuction should present you with immediate and significant improvement. If you can’t see any difference immediately after liposuction, you probably won’t see much difference as well 6 to 12 months down the road.
