Offering Fat Transfer in Arlington Heights, Elgin, Glen Ellyn, Hinsdale, Naperville, Schaumburg, and St. Charles, IL
Fat transfer is the procedure that utilizes stem cells and regenerative medicine to take fat cells from one area of the body and inject it into another area that is lacking volume. Stem cells are the cells that have the capability to change into other cells of the body.
Despite what is told to us from popular media, most stem cells do not come from embryos or bone marrow; they actually come from your own fat cells. These stem cells can restore function by enabling the body to use the stem cells to repair, replace and regenerate damaged, diseased, and aging cells, tissues, and organs.
Fat cells are harvested from your own body. Our plastic surgeons utilize the latest techniques in order to provide the most viable fat cells. The most modern technique being used today to acquire fat cells is the “Water Jet Liposuction System”. This procedure allows you to be awake and with the most minimal amount of pain. Also, the procedure will produce the most fat cells. During the harvesting, most patients prefer to have areas of their body shaped at the same time. The most common areas patients shape out include the abdomen, hips and saddlebag areas. The fat cells will be harvested for same-day use.
