SINGAPORE, November 2021 — Dr Ivan Puah, Medical Director at Amaris B. Clinic, who has been performing liposuction, correction surgery and gynecomastia surgery for more than 15 years, has developed a liposuction technique called MDC-Sculpt®️Lipo technique. This proprietary approach is to achieve the three main objectives of successful and optimal contouring results for patients – thorough fat removal, precise body sculpting and skin tightening.  

Liposuction, one of the world's most popular cosmetic surgeries for removing adipose tissue from the subcutaneous area, was first performed by Charles Dujarier 95 years ago, in 1926. Since then, liposuction has evolved over the years, from surgical techniques and tools used, to developing and incorporating modern technologies that significantly reduced the invasiveness of the procedure and improved the results for patients.

MDC stands for Multi-Dimensional Contouring. It effectively removes fat cells and therefore limits the future deposition of fat in the treated area. The MDC-Sculpt®️ Lipo technique is a novel fat removal and body sculpting technique that enables Dr. Ivan Puah to remove more than 90% of localised subcutaneous fat tissues and tailor body sculpting while tightening loose skin that is not achievable by traditional liposuction. An advocate that body sculpting surgeries is 70 percent art and 30 percent science, Dr. Ivan Puah developed this liposuction technique to allow for better efficacy, comprehensive fat removal and, enhancing and harmonising of natural body contours and musculature. The common areas of complaints he treats include the face, armpits, shoulders, abdomen, flanks, hips, thighs, breasts (such as breasts reduction surgery involving fat), knees and calves. 

According to Dr Ivan Puah, "Body fat characteristics, thickness and distribution, are just like fingerprints and are unique for each individual. No one body shape is the same, and therefore liposuction cannot be done in a cookie-cutter manner, and thus the birth of the MDC-Sculpt®️ Lipo technique whereby strategic incision sites will be selected to allow me to maximise the reach out to the fat tissues so that thorough fat removal and sculpting can be achieved while keeping the scarring to the minimal. Compared to traditional liposuction, this approach can improve skin elasticity. It is also gentler and less traumatising, which translates to faster recovery, lesser bruising and discomfort for patients."

Developed to navigate different body shapes and contours

It is always a challenge for liposuction doctors to treat particular areas such as knee fat, 'bra bulges' and 'armpit fat, or cases that required high-definition sculpting, sites with excessive loose skin or stretch marks, and patients who had scars or asymmetrical results from previous surgery or liposuction. These are also cases that could be tricky even for the most experienced doctors—numerous patients with the above tough conditions have suffered from less than perfect results after undergoing liposuction by doctors both locally and abroad.

With the MDC-Sculpt®️ Lipo technique, doctors can produce predictable and desirable results for these patients.
