Buffalo hump (fat accumulation on upper back and shoulder) and Lipoma (benign fatty tumours) are structurally different, and so are their treatment approaches.

For many of us, the late 20s bring about a world of unwelcome surprises.
From the bizarre decrease in metabolic rate to the unsightly cellulite overstaying its welcome, nothing beats the agony of spotting the physical evidence of ageing on our faces, and the toll ageing has on our once divine bodies.
However, before you allow ageing to take the reins and resign to its notoriety, there ARE ways for us to strike back at ageing (with a vengeance), making us look and feel 21 again.
1. Defy Gravity And Lift Saggy Skin With Ultherapy
From the effects of gravity at play, the immersion of environmental pollutants daily, to loss of volume as age creeps up on us; our face is one of the main features that is taking quite the major hit when ageing strikes.
With jowls being one of the most common and surest signs of ageing, the droopiness of the lower cheek does nothing but pile unwanted age onto us. Thankfully, a simple and quick procedure, Ultherapy is here to prevent our face from going deep South.
What is Ultherapy and how does it work?
Ultherapy® is an FDA-approved skin lifting and collagen-boosting treatment. It uses time-tested ultrasound energy to lift and tighten the skin naturally and restore skin's elasticity and youthful appearance without surgery, putting the bounce back into the skin and your confidence.
This non-invasive skin lifting treatment that uses high-intensity micro-focused ultrasound with real-time visualisation (MFU-V) can also smooth out lines and wrinkles on the décolletage . Ultherapy® stimulates collagen production in the skin's foundation, resulting in a clinically significant lift of tissue over two to three months, which continues to show results for up to half a year .
Ultherapy® treats saggy cheeks and jowls and addresses skin laxity, "turkey neck", droopy eyelids, lines, and wrinkles on the décolletage effectively and non-surgically.
2. Remove excess fat permanently: MDC-Sculpt®️ Lipo technique
So ladies (who are in our late 20’s), let’s face it. Like the wind, our heyday has come and gone, and to our dismay, our bodies do not quite seem to feel and look like how they did back in our prime.
With our metabolism acting up and our flaps taking a life of their own, our bodies have become less desirable than before. With a sedentary lifestyle prevailing in our daily lives, our taut bodies have gone into hiding.
What is the MDC-Sculpt®️ Lipo technique and how is it different from traditional liposuction?
Dr Ivan Puah's MDC-Sculpt®️ Lipo technique is a multi-dimensional contouring approach that works on each individual's unique body shape, fat anatomy, fat distribution and skin laxity.
Localised stubborn fat that fails to respond to exercise or diet is removed, while body sculpting is carried out simultaneously.
Considering that surgical scarring is a concern for patients, Dr Ivan Puah will keep the incision scars to the bare minimum by strategically creating incisions to allow efficient access to the three layers of fat.
This approach encourages better skin retraction, which traditional liposuction fails to deliver. Results from Modern Liposuction with MDC-Sculpt®️ Lipo technique are natural and well-shaped.
3. Breast Enlargement with your fat: ADR-C Breast Enhancement (Breast fat grafting)
With gravity acting upon our bosoms for the past 20-odd years and that pesky loss of volume as we enter our ageing years, our breasts have flopped and lost just as much of their appeal.
Gravity and ageing aside, let’s be honest, the whole “home is where the bra isn’t” mentality that has now taken permanent residence in our outlook on bras is one of the major causes of our oddly shaped and saggy bosoms.
For many, our breasts are an emblem of femininity. While some of us are afflicted by uneven-sized breasts, others suffer from saggy and smaller bosoms.
What is ADR-C Breast Enhancement (Breast fat grafting) and how does it use body fat to increase breast size?
ADR-C Breast Enhancement (Breast fat grafting) is a 2-in-1 body sculpting and breast enlargement procedure for women looking to remove fat and increase cup size in one treatment. This breast fat grafting procedure produces natural, long-lasting results with minimal incisions and scarring.
ADR-C Breast Enhancement (Breast fat grafting) utilises your body fat, thus eliminating the risks of ruptures, leaks or shifts usually associated with implants. Hence the recovery process is faster too!
4. Replace Volume Loss: 4D Fluid Facelift
As mentioned, one of the most painful effects of ageing is the significant loss of facial volume.
Hollow cheeks, sunken eyes and prominent smile lines that sound very much like the perfect Halloween mask are indeed the result of ageing. Our faces scream, ‘you are getting old’ like no other, but much can be done to delicately and masterfully mask that dreadful signs.
What is 4D Fluid Facelift, and how can this filler treatment make you look younger?
4D Fluid Facelift, designed by Dr Ivan Puah, addresses multiple facial ageing issues and can :
• Replace volume loss on the face
• Improve skin quality
• Smooth out fine lines on the forehead
• Remodel the cheeks and chin for better facial definition
• Define and enhance lips
• Soften moderate lines around the mouth to the chin and from the nose to the lip corners
This procedure may be combined with Anti-wrinkle Injection (BoNTA), Chemical Peel and Pico Fractional Laser for an even smoother complexion and younger-looking appearance.
5. Smooth out wrinkles: Anti-wrinkle Injection (BoNTA)
People say each crease on an individual’s face tells a unique story, and wrinkles indicate a learned and wise person. But they forgot to tell us that ‘you are getting old!’ when wrinkles make their unwanted appearance.
It’s one thing to look wise; it’s another to glaringly announce your age with the wrinkles that have now formed a roadmap on your forehead. Wrinkles are maddening, to say the very least.
What is Anti-wrinkle Injection (BoNTA) and how does it help you iron the fine lines and wrinkles?
Anti-wrinkle Injection (BoNTA) is the perfect solution to render a fresher and more youthful appearance by reducing fine lines and wrinkles.
Worried about the "frozen" or "Spock Brow" look? Fret Not. A successful and optimal anti-wrinkle injection results lie in the doctor's ability to create a subtle, balanced, rested, and natural appearance for the patient, which is what Dr Ivan Puah does.
