Update on 2 Dec 2016: All the links to YouTube videos posted below are no longer working as our account has been terminated by YouTube for posting videos showing breasts and buttocks. But our channel is a cosmetic surgery channel with lots of works done on breasts and buttocks. In fact, Dr Arthur Tjandra is one of the pioneers of autologous fat grafting breasts and buttocks augmentation. He was the first surgeon to perform autologous fat grafting breasts and buttocks augmentation in Singapore and Indonesia! He is possibly one of the most experienced surgeon in the world and has performed the most number of cases of autologous fat grafting breasts and buttocks augmentation. It is absurd to censor the breasts and buttocks when showing the results of breasts and buttocks surgeries. We started uploading live, unedited videos of our surgeries in mid-2013. In less than 3 year time, we have uploaded more than 2000 live, unedited videos showing the immediate results of our surgeries, with follow-up videos taken months and years later. While all other surgeons post "before" and "after" photos of their surgeries, which are often heavily-edited, we are the first and currently still the only one in the world who raise the bar higher by posting unedited, live videos taken during surgeries, until YouTube decides to take down all our videos today. Our decision to post live, unedited videos of our surgeries has caused an uproar in the medical community, especially cosmetic surgery, all around the world. A lot of major forces have been trying to shut us down in the last few years and they finally managed to do so. Firstly, Dr Arthur Tjandra's Facebook personal account was terminated 2 months ago as he posted some photographs of the results of his breasts augmentation surgeries, and today, his YouTube account is also terminated for violating the guidelines, while one can easily watch videos of people having sexual intercourse on YouTube. The truth is, the medical community, especially cosmetic surgery, prefers to remain in status quo, by showing prospective patients photos, which can be edited, rather than videos, which are harder to edit, especially when a surgeon has thousands of videos to showcase. That is why videos of people having sexual intercourse are allowed on YouTube, while videos of breasts and buttocks surgeries are not allowed on YouTube. We highly suspect that this move is politically-motivated as even our videos showing only facial surgeries and liposuction on male abdomens are labeled as pornography and removed by YouTube! As there is no other option of showcasing the result of our surgeries through videos anymore, as all other platforms have even stricter terms than YouTube regarding nudity, we will have to re-join the rest of the pack by posting photographs only. We stopped doing so back in 2010, as we figured out that there were too many surgeons out there who heavily-edited their surgical photos. However, those who had watched the 2000+ videos we had posted from 2013 to 2016, and also read first-hand accounts of patients who blogged about their experience below and compared the photos they took themselves and the videos we posted on YouTube, would have realized that all our photos are genuine and unedited. We will soon resume our case studies on a new platform, Elixirdevie.com. It is not possible to re-publish all the 450 case studies we have uploaded and published on our YouTube channel, hence we will re-start again from Case 399, which happens to be an interesting revision case study. Keep your eyes on our new platform, Elixirdevie.com, so that you do not miss it!
