Dr Ivan Puah notices psychological improvements in patients after undergoing VASER liposuction and fat grafting procedures

Contrary to popular beliefs, undergoing a Vaser liposuction and fat grafting is not just about vanity. For many, it is about attaining a new lease of life.

SINGAPORE, March 2021 — Dr. Ivan Puah, an accredited liposuction doctor and Medical Director of Amaris B. Clinic has helped patients address their body fat issues successfully over the past 15 years. This experience provided him with a valuable insight - that the correlation between looking and feeling good extends beyond what's visible to the naked eye. This comes from having witnessed tremendous improvements in the patients' self-confidence and self-love, resulting in a better mental health state and quality of life.

At Amaris B. Clinic, the journey starts at the consultation stage, where Dr Ivan Puah will thoroughly assess patients' concerns, clinical condition, medical history, lifestyle, diet and fitness level. Based on what his patients shared, Dr Puah observed that there are many common reasons for wanting to undergo Vaser liposuction. These include wanting to boost self-esteem and confidence, improve overall health, permanently remove stubborn fat from specific body parts (particularly those resistant to diet and exercise) or achieve a more sculpted appearance. Some patients wish to regain their former physique with Vaser liposuction and replace fat volume loss in the breasts due to causes such as ageing or breastfeeding.  

Breast fat grafting

Breast fat grafting is an alternative to breast implants for those seeking to increase their breasts' volume more naturally. This procedure also helps achieve better breast symmetry and improves or corrects breast shape in women with developmental or congenital breast changes.

"It is important to zoom into the intent of the patient for wanting to improve themselves. Mostly, they have thought it over carefully, are in good health and have good self-esteem, understand the risks of the procedure they are considering. Patients seeking cosmetic procedures are actually due to a multitude of personal reasons that are beyond vanity! Reasons include wanting to regain self-confidence after a pregnancy, job change, or having undergone a major life-changing event such as divorce," says Dr Ivan Puah.

Vaser liposuction and fat grafting result satisfaction

Most of his patients, who are satisfied with their Vaser liposuction and fat grafting procedures, continue to upkeep their appearance by adhering to a better lifestyle, including exercising regularly and eating more nutritiously.

Dr Ivan Puah advises patients considering Vaser liposuction for fat loss and body sculpting treatment to find an accredited and experienced doctor licensed by the Ministry of Health, Singapore. He also reiterated the importance of realistic expectations on the patient's behalf regarding their body goals and results.

Botched procedures

Cosmetic procedures can help patients gain self-confidence, but the onus is up to the patient to do their homework to find the right and qualified doctor. Botched jobs are not unheard of, and some patients suffer from even lower self-esteem and depression even because of them.

"Botched procedures should not be left uncorrected or untreated as patients may suffer significant physical and psychological trauma after botched treatment. Corrective surgery, when performed adequately, can help these patients to improve their clinical condition and self-confidence. Don't underestimate how good you can feel and how improved your life's quality is when you feel good about yourself. Self-empowerment is powerful," shares Dr Ivan Puah.
