Preparation & getting there

Before we are going to Medan

As my boyfriend has done liposuction in Turkey more than a year ago he knew a lot about this procedure. First I asked him and listened what he said about it and then we both started doing more research about it such as reading other patients reviews and googled about the technique etc. One stage we found a video on YouTube where doctor was performing a liposuction on patient and that lead to The Liposuction Master Dr. Arthur Tjandra in Medan. Watching different videos what was filmed in hes clinic and reading hes patient’s blogs and reviews, we understood that he is The Guy!!!! He really looked that he knows hes job and patient’s results were really good. Also, what I liked the most was that Dr Tjandra is so transparent what he is doing and I didn’t see any photo shopped pictures. Instead, YouTube was full of videos.

For the next step we sent an email to Elixir de Vie clinic, where Dr Arthur Tjandra works, for additional details and eventually to book our liposuction procedure date. Jennifer Cotto, who is Elixir de Vie client service coordinator, sent many emails about the procedure and where to get post op garments etc and was very helpful to get every question answered. Jennifer is the first contact if you want to book surgery or just get more information about the liposuction procedure. You could even send her your pictures for the doctor’s initial examination, that is what I did as well. You can reach her by email and Elixir de Vie webpage is very helpful too.


We are going to Medan!!!

Finally!!! We have booked our surgery. My thighs liposuction is booked for 20th December 2016 and my boyfriend’s a day after. First we are flying to Singapore and having a short holiday there and then we are flying to Medan with Jetstar. We took a train to Medan and asked Elixir de Vie’s driver to pick us up at the train station. The train is modern and clean and costs 100,000 local money which is just about 10 Australian dollars. Sunyo, the driver, took us safely to the clinic where we were showed around. Clinic has its own accommodation on the second floor. It is a big house and it is clean and modern. First night we stayed in the double room with shared bathroom but next day we moved to the room with our own private bathroom ( it is more convenient, especially after the thighs procedure when its hard to walk).

First few days we ordered our meals through the clinic but then we didn’t want Asian food anymore and went to shops and bought food from there because there is a shared kitchen in the clinic where you can prepare your food if you like.
