Fat Transfer in Chicago, IL

When a man or woman gains and loses weight or moves through the normal aging process, it's common for parts of the body to lose volume, taking on a saggy or flabby look. One way to regain this lost volume is through a cosmetic treatment known as fat grafting (or a fat transfer). A fat transfer removes fat from an area of the body where you don't want it and transfers it into another area that could benefit from additional volume. A fat transfer can be performed on large areas, such as the breasts or buttocks, or on delicate features, such as the lower eyelid, cheeks, or lips. Fat grafting and transfers are often ideal when a patient is looking for a natural enhancement rather than having fillers or implants. Dr. Lawrence Iteld uses the most effective liposuction and grafting methods for performing fat transfers. This body contouring treatment at Iteld Plastic Surgery creates gorgeous, soft outcomes. To learn how fat grafting can help give your body the shape you desire, schedule a private consultation at our Chicago, IL aesthetic practice.

Fat transfer surgery at Iteld Plastic Surgery is performed with narcotics-free medication for your comfort and safety. The procedure involves three stages. First, Dr. Iteld will extract fat from your body using liposuction. Once it's removed, it will be purified to remove any broken cells and other fluids, ensuring only the highest quality fat remains. After preparing the injection site, the extracted fat will be transferred into the area that needs volume — the most common targets for fat transfer include the breasts, butt, hips, and face, though other areas can be treated, as well. This injection is performed in layers until the desired outcome has been attained. For some areas, numerous injections will be needed. The end result should look and feel natural.

The entire staff here was so amazing, I cannot recommend them enough! I had top surgery with Dr. Iteld and he, and the entire staff, were extremely welcoming, kind, and so supportive every step of the way. They are extremely affirming and take the time to make sure you have all your questions answered and feel comfortable. I had never had any surgery before and everyone at this location made me feel so at ease. And my results are AMAZING! I am so grateful to Dr. Iteld and his entire team for going above and beyond to help me through this process and for giving me a chest that I love!

Totally amazed at the transformation - fantastic follow-up - It took time but I am totally amazed at the transformation. I had a tummy tuck with a 360 lipo and I was way overdue for this. I was a little worried because of my age. No fear because Dr Iteld did such an amazing job . I dropped 2 dresses went from a 12 to an 8 in 2 months. My belly is gone. Better then before my children. Followed his instructions and his follow up was fantastic he checked on my progress physically in his office seeing me twice a week for over a month then weekly. If I had issues they were addressed. I’ve had a lot of past surgeries for medicals reasons but this is the best follow up I’ve ever had. Dr Iteld took a true interest in every step of the way.
