Fat Transfers and Injections in Chicago and Arlington Heights, IL

Board-certified plastic surgeon Dr. John A. Kotis offers the innovative fat transfer procedure to residents of Chicago, Arlington Heights and surrounding Illinois communities. The fat transfer procedure uses tissue from the patient’s very own body to provide enhanced contour and shape to a targeted body area. Fat transfer is a safe, effective procedure for the modern patient.

What is the Fat Transfer Procedure?

With age, the skin can begin to lose volume causing areas on the face and body to have noticeable depressions. To increase volume and create a younger looking appearance, Dr. Kotis performs fat harvesting and injection procedures. Excess fat tissue can be removed from one area and be transferred to add volume to another, such as the face.

What are the Addressed Areas for Fat Transfer?

Fat transfer can be used to plump many areas, including the hands, face and lips. Typically, fat is taken from areas like the thighs and buttock, where fat tissue is more abundant. These grafts are then transferred for a plumper or more even appearance.

What is the Recovery for Fat Transfer?

The recovery period after fat transfer depends on a variety of factors. Patients may expect to take some time off from work to heal from the procedure. The amount of fat transferred, the placement of fat and the number of incisions, all vary the recovery time for a patient. For more information about fat transfer procedures in Chicago, visit Dr. Kotis’s office or call to schedule a consultation.

Who is a Candidate for Fat Transfer?

The fat transfer procedure is most effective for individuals who are not significantly overweight or lacking body fat but simply are unhappy with the shape of the body itself. Because fat transfer is not for dramatic fat reduction or enhanced volume, it is best suited for individuals looking for natural results, with little side effects. Individuals in search of a safe, effective way to enhance the contours of their body should consider fat transfer as an effective treatment option.

What are the Benefits of Fat Transfer?

The fat transfer procedure offers benefits to individuals wishing to enhance the shape and appearance of targeted areas of the body. By decreasing fat volume in undesirable areas and enhancing the volume of other areas of the body, the silhouette can be completely transformed. Patients can feel better in and out of clothes. They can also achieve an increased self-esteem and a more youthful, healthy appearance, as a result of this safe procedure.

How Much Does the Fat Transfer Procedure Cost in Chicago, IL?
