As we age, our facial structure, especially our healthy “Baby” fat vanishes. This leads to sagging skin.

In a fat transfer chicago procedure we take a small amount of fat from one area of your body, and transfer this fat to create rejuvenation in other areas of the body, such as the face, hands, breasts, buttocks and nearly anywhere else desired.

Fat Transfer

Also known as autologous fat transplantation, Micro-fat injection, structural fat grafting.

The Liposuction and Cosmetic Surgery Institute of Chicago and surrounding suburbs of Oak Brook, Arlington Heights and Naperville with medical director Dr. Leon Forrester Tcheupdjian, M.D.  (“Dr.T”) and his associates are world-renowned as the pioneers and champions of unique and innovative liposuction and fat grafting techniques. Fat grafting is more commonly known as “fat transfer,” which is the skillful art of recycling one’s own body fat cells to rejuvenate the face, enhance certain parts of the body and enlarge breasts. Dr. Tcheupdjian’s unparalleled experience and meticulous micro-liposuction technique ensures durable results.

What are the key benefits of fat transfer in Chicago?

It is a single, safe procedure that fills, tightens, lifts and firms the skin. The goal is to enhance definition of the face, cheeks, neck, breasts, buttocks, aging hands or any under skin indentation where fat is lost anywhere in the body.

  • It is a walk-in walk-out procedure, no need for general anesthesia or a hospital stay.
  • Results are more natural-looking
  • Considerably less pain and no scarring
  • Quick recovery. No lengthy time off work or away from normal exercise or daily activities.

Advantage to using Fat Cells vs. Temporary Fillers

Instead of using temporary fillers, why not use your own fat cells to fill the all too common signs of aging like wrinkles, deep lines and loose skin? Using your own fat cells is 100 percent natural and longer lasting.

Dr. Tcheupdjian’s Fat Grafting Experience is Unparalleled

Dr. Tcheupdjian has been interested in the adipose (fat) cell since before his graduation from Northwestern University Medical School in 1971, but his life changing experience occurred 1978 when he first learned about liposuction procedure while at a conference in France. After several years of learning and perfecting the techniques of liposculpture under the guidance of the procedure’s originators France in early 1981, he decided to dedicate himself full-time to the art and science of liposuction. Shortly thereafter, under the guidance of Dr. Pierre Fournier of Paris, Dr. Tcheupdjian mastered the art of fat transfer by re-injecting the extracted fat cells with a blunt needle, primarily into the extremities to correct defects, deformities and asymmetries. The practice expanded to include the face, body and genitals, primarily penile enhancement. Dr. Tcheupdjian is among the very first pioneers of liposuction and fat transfer in the world.

How is fat transfer Chicago to the face done?

We extract fat from a predetermined area of the body first via liposuction. The fat, including the stromal stem cells, are separated. The combo is either injected directly back into the recipient area wherever needed or mixed with PRP (platelet rich plasma, aka, Vampire FaceLift).
