Education, Training, and Experience is essential when choosing a Surgeon. MetropolitanMD boasts one of the most established and respected cosmetic surgery centers with real Cosmetic Surgeons in the Chicagoland area.

The aging face is primarily due to loss of facial volume secondary to changes in bones, muscles, fat, and skin. While restoring bones, muscles, and skin is difficult, restoring fat volumes is relatively easy.

Lipoaugmentation restores a youthful contour by transferring a patient's own fat from an undesired area to a collapsed cosmetic unit of the face. This procedure restores sunken eyes and cheeks, thin lips and mouth, and ill-defined jaw lines and chin creating a more youthful appearance.

Lipoaugmentation is performed in the safe, certified suites of MetropolitanMD, under local or twilight anesthesia. Fat can be "harvested" from many areas including the abdomen, hips, and thighs. No sutures are necessary and most incisions become invisible within months. Some swelling may be noticeable for several days depending on the extent of the desired procedure. Fat may also be frozen and stored to permit repeat injections during the year. The effects of the transferred fat may last for years.

Lipoaugmentation may be combined with other cosmetic procedures such as a forehead lift, facelift, blepharoplasty or laser resurfacing to give an overall aesthetic improvement.
