Hallowed, sunken areas of the face and thinning lips are unfortunate signs of aging. Board-certified plastic surgeon Dr. John A. Kotis restores a youthful appearance to patients in the Chicago and Arlington heights area by safely transferring fat from one area of your body to another.
Sunken areas of your face or thinning lips are restored when fat from the abdomen, thigh or buttocks is extracted via syringe and transferred to the area of need. One of the best benefits of this procedure is that it reduces the signs of aging by using your own fat to accentuate facial contours without surgery.
Other benefits include combating common signs of aging that include filling in and smoothing out:
Lines around the mouth, such as frown and smile lines
Pitted acne scars and other facial depressions
Thin lips, making them naturally plump
Hallowed under eyes, making you look well-rested
Wrinkles around the eyes and forehead for a more youthful appearance
Minimizing the shape and contour of the area from which is harvested
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.
With age, the skin can begin to lose volume. Areas in the face and body may 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 another to add volume
The recovery period after fat transfer depends on a variety of factors. Patients may expect to take some time off from work to heal. The amount of fat transferred, the placement of fat and the number of incisions all vary depending on each patient’s preferences.
