It can be quite frustrating, if not depressing, to continually work on one’s figure faithfully and yet not see the complete desired results in your body. No matter how many hours you put in for weight loss exercise and the amount of food you cut out from your diet, there are just some problem areas we can’t seem to get rid of.

There are many effective ways in which you can reach your goal, especially at Amaris B. Clinic. Under Dr. Ivan Puah, a reputable physician in body sculpting, this aesthetic clinic in Singapore prioritises your safety and well-being, ensuring that you achieve the results that you want.

As one of the few clinics to offer a comprehensive range of minimally invasive yet effective fat-reduction services in Singapore, Amaris B. Clinic has made its mark in body sculpting for over 10 years. Here are some of the effective fat reduction procedures you might want to look into, depending on your concerns.


Known as the fat removal surgery, liposuction remains the top 5 most sought-after cosmetic procedures, according to the 2017 Plastic Surgery Statistics by American Society of Plastic Surgeons (ASPS). It is designed to help men and women remove areas of stubborn fat and reshape specific areas of the body.

Patients can target problematic body areas such as the chest, arms, waist, hips, stomach, back, thighs, buttocks, and even calves with liposuction.

How does liposuction work?

Liposuction begins with the doctor making a small incision on the targeted area, followed by administration of local anaesthetic. The doctor then inserts a specially designed cannula into the area to remove the fat quickly and efficiently.

Liposuction can be carried out as a day procedure and may take between one and three hours to complete depending on the area being treated. Results will be noticeable immediately following the procedure and these results will continue to improve as the swelling goes down over the course of 3 to 6 months.

Liposuction must not be thought of as a short cut to lose weight, as the weight of the aspirated fat is very small in relation to total body weight. However by targeting specific areas of stubborn fat deposits, clothes will fit better and the figure will be more in proportion.

4D Liposuction (Hi-definition Liposuction)

This was introduced in 2007, when Dr. Ivan Puah completed various VASER® body sculpting training conducted by the VASER® Institute in the USA. VASER stands for 'Vibration Amplification of Sound Energy at Resonance'.

4D Liposuction (Hi-definition Liposuction) is a fat removal and reduction technique that contours and sculpts your body to further enhance your natural musculature nature and create a more defined and toned physique.

4D Liposuction (Hi-definition Liposuction) uses ultrasonic wave technology to target and remove areas of unwanted fat – with minimal damage to surrounding body tissue – meaning that post-operative pain and discomfort is greatly reduced.  Healing is rapid because important tissues such as nerves, blood vessels, connective tissue and collagen are also preserved in the process.

How does 4D Liposuction (Hi-definition Liposuction) work?

4D Liposuction (Hi-definition Liposuction) can be performed under a local anaesthetic. The Vaser probe is inserted to transmit ultrasonic energy that breaks apart and emulsifies the fatty tissues, after which it is removed with a cannula. The unique process allows the doctor to remove the fat and etch your contours for a naturally toned and defined physique.

The removal of both superficial and deep fats surrounding muscle groups enhances the visibility of underlying toning and musculature. Men can define their six-pack abs while women can better achieve an hourglass figure.

Gynecomastia Surgery

40 to 60 percent of men suffer from what are commonly known as “man boobs” or medically known as Gynecomastia. “Gynecomastia is a medical term that comes from Greek words for women-like breasts, which is due to the abnormal increase in glandular tissues,” explains Dr Ivan Puah. If you are one of those men who are suffering from this condition, there is a permanent solution.

Dr. Ivan Puah shares, “Gynecomastia surgery is becoming increasingly popular among men as more and more learn about the positive impact it can have on their self-confidence and self-esteem.”  It is not surprising to learn that gynecomastia surgery is the Top 3 most performed procedures in 2017!

Nicholas*, 32, one of the clients who had gynecomastia treated at Amaris B. Clinic said, “Before I had the procedure, my moobs poked out like women’s breasts and it is embarrassing for me.  I had tried exercises such as bench presses, running and watched my diet but nothing changed.  Since the surgery, my moobs are flattened and I am less conscious about it. ”

Consult with a doctor to determine if you are a candidate for the surgery because the condition is unfortunately only corrected through surgery. It cannot be treated through exercise or diet.

It is best to set up a consultation with Dr. Ivan Puah and discuss which body sculpting treatment is best suited for your needs. Aftercare is essential to Amaris B. Clinic, so all recovery post-procedures can be optimised through their bespoke aftercare program to ensure optimum results.
