Due to strict regulations from the Ministry of Health, licensed healthcare practices in Singapore are not allowed to show and share before-and-after photos or videos in the public domain (websites, social media, magazines) or through any form of push technology such as Whatsapp, SMS, MMs, Facebook messenger, and other messaging platforms. “Before-and-after” or only “after” treatment photographs, pictures, videos, and films relating to a treatment may be shown to patients privately during in-clinic consultation with Dr. Ivan Puah.

Vacuum Pod Workout
& Manual Lymphatic
Drainage Massage

The vacuum pod workout was designed by Austrian Sports Scientist, and it was imported by Amaris B. Clinic to help clients improve venous circulation for overall health. When combined with our Manual Lymphatic Drainage Massage, patients can achieve improved blood circulation and immune system.
Vacuum Pod Workout & Manual Lymphatic Drainage Massage

Amaris B. Vacuum Pod Workout uses Vacuum Compression Therapy. The cycles of positive and negative pressure aid in improving circulation. The volume of an elastic vessel can be increased by the application of a vacuum force on its outer wall. In the negative pressure phase of Vacuum Compression Therapy, the vacuum force is exerted on the extremities and its vessels. In the positive pressure phase, venous drainage is facilitated. Thus the alteration of positive and negative pressure promotes increased arterial and capillary circulation and better venous drainage. 

Our Manual Lymphatic Drainage Massage (MLD)
 helps stimulate the functions of the body's secondary circulation, the lymphatic system. Doing MLD regularly encourages the removal and filtering of waste, toxins, and excess fluids from cells and boosts the body. It also works on the autonomic nervous system to promote relaxation and stress reduction. Conditions such as cellulite, post-liposuction swelling, tiredness, stress, general fluid retention and many others can benefit from MLD.

Sports Rehabilitation
& Pain Management

Sports injuries are bumps on the road towards your goals but don’t let them grind your efforts to a halt.

Fat Grafting vs Implants

Top reasons why fat grafting is way better than implants
Image of a breast implantation procedure for educational purpose

Breast implantation procedure image for educational purpose.

  • Due to DNA, fat may accumulate on the tummy, hips and thighs

    Breast-enhancement via Fat Grafting uses fat from other parts of the body. This way, excess fat is removed from one part resulting in fat loss in that area and transferred to the breast resulting in an enhancement. It can be considered a 2-in-1 procedure that gives double the results.

  • Unhealthy eating habits such as overindulging in junk food and dessert

    Silicone and saline may be considered safe but they are not as safe as fat from one's own body.

  • Sedentary lifestyle

    Fat grafting, unlike implants, results in a more natural appearance and also to the touch.

  • Hormones wreaking havoc in your body, causing weight and fat gain

    Implants carry the risk of rupture and leakage. They would need to be changed over a patient’s lifespan and are not a permanent solution. Fat grafting eliminates these risks and the fat used is the patient’s own.

  • Stress hormone (cortisol) directly effects fat storage and weight gain

    Implants, particularly if they are too big, carry the risk of visibility and rippling.

  • Fat stored during pregnancy that you can’t lose after giving birth

    In breast implants there is a risk of the scar tissue hardening and this can result in implant hardening and distortion.

  • Lack of quality sleep and rest

    Stretch marks are also a concern when it comes to implants. This is because the skin needs to be stretched to accommodate them.

04 // Weight, wellbeing & nutrition Management

Consumed calories have a direct relationship with our weight. But often, people neglect the fact that what we eat is more important than how much we eat. Wellbeing integrates mental health (mind) and physical health (body), resulting in more holistic approaches to disease prevention and health promotion.

Diet

A balanced diet should consist of carbohydrates, proteins, fats, vitamins, minerals, fibre and water. Planning diets refers to determining what the usual nutrient intake should be. Whether you are planning for yourself or others, the goal is to have nutritionally adequate diets, or to ensure that nutrient inadequacy or excess is acceptably low.

Learn More

Nutrition

While we watch our calories intake while we are on our weight loss journey, it is important to pay attention to what we put in our body. A consistent healthy diet reduces chances of us contracting serious health diseases so that we can lead a happier, healthier and more fulfilling life with maximum mobility in each phase of our lives.

Learn More

Supplement

When you want to lose the kilos, it's  tempting to turn to supplements, meal replacement shakes or herbal remedies Ensure they are FDA approved and prescribed only by medical doctors. From appetite supplements and oil blockers to dietary fat binders, always consult a medical doctor before you consume them.

Learn More

Sleep

Sleep is essential as, among other things, it is when our body repairs itself. In fat loss, the lack of adequate sleep increases the hormone ghrelin production, which triggers that hungry feeling, leading to overeating. With a better mood and positive outlook, the changes you experience encompass the body and mind. Did you also know that ample sleep improves your muscular strength, endurance, reflexes, and reaction time?

Learn More

Stress

Stress eating is a common occurrence. Cortisol is released in the body during episodes of stress, and its level is elevated for quite a significant period, even extended in people who suffer from chronic stress. Among other actions, cortisol stimulates fat and carbohydrate metabolism for fast energy. This results in an increased appetite, and in those with poorly managed stress or chronic stress, weight gain can be expected.

FAT GRAFTING FAQs

How is fat grafting performed?

Fat is first extracted from other parts of the body after which, concentrated fat is then separated before being filled into syringes. These are then injected into the area where it is needed.

How long do results from fat grafting last?

Depending on the body and how well it responds to the procedure, results can last for years. Some patients require only a one-time treatment. This will be discussed with the doctor during consultation.

Where are my fat cells collected from?

Common areas where the fat is extracted from are the thighs and buttcoks. These areas are known to have a high density of  fat.

How are fat cells placed in my face or buttocks?

The injections are done through tiny incisions that have been strategically placed on areas to be treated. One this is done, these will be stitched up. Take note that in facial fat grafting, no stitching is needed.

Which body parts respond the best to fat grafting?

Fat grafting is suitable for most parts of the body and they respond well in terms of immediate results. The lips and laugh lines may require more than one session for results to show.

How and why is fat grafting so effective?

Fat grafting uses a patient’s own fat. Aside from reducing complications, it is also able to aid in better recovery as the chance of tissue rejection is lower. Fat cells are delicate in nature but when they are injected into the body, their chances of survival are high as new blood supply is able to grow back into them.

How much fat is needed for fat transfer?

The amount of fat that will be needed is dependent on the area being treated. It is also dependent on the amount of fat that a person’s body has. If your body does not have enough, the doctor may suggest other alternative solutions.

How long does the fat grafting procedure take?

Fat grafting procedure lasts between ONE to TWO hours depending on the area where fat is being extracted from and grafted into.

How long is recovery from fat transfer?

Recovery is expected to take between TWO days to TWO weeks. This is dependent on the area being treated and responsiveness of the body to the treatment.

How do I prepare for fat transfer?

During consultation, you will be given a list of instructions and you are advised to follow them. For those who smoke, it is advised that they cease to do so at least SIX weeks before the procedure. This will reduce risk of complications and it will also help promote quicker recovery and less scarring. It is also advisable to stop taking aspirins and medications that can increase bleeding. Do also remember to arrange for transport to and from the clinic on the day of the procedure.
