Cosmetic Surgery Chicago, IL

We all have misgivings about ourselves. We notice where we store our extra pounds, the signs of aging etched on our faces, etc. These flaws can make us embarrassed to go out in public, can prohibit us from striving after our dreams and can make us uncomfortable in our own skin. If you had no trouble thinking of the physical flaws that aggravate you, it’s time for a change.

Now is the time to get your face and body nipped, snipped, sucked, tucked, filled, plucked, and shrink wrapped. Why now? Because it takes time to see the results of these procedures, and you need to give your body time to heal. So for that refreshed and tight look in the social months of Chicago, the hard work begins in the winter. The procedures discussed below are all done under local anesthesia, not needing sedation. The patient is awake, safe and walks out of the office within a few hours. Here are some of the procedures that are perfect for now:

Eyelift (Bleph)

If you have saggy upper eyelids, a blepharoplasty can remove the extra skin and restore a crisp upper eye crease. If the lower eyelid is baggy or has bunched up skin, a lower blepharoplasty can remove the bags and any extra skin can either be removed or laser resurfaced. Downtime: 2 weeks

Scar Revision

This is most commonly done for acne scars, but other scars and even stretch marks can fall into this category. If the scar is very wide, the revision could involve the surgical removal of thee scar. If the scar is indented, fillers like fat can elevate the indentation.


This is a time tested procedure with a great safety profile when done under local anesthesia. For men the number one site needing liposuction is the love handles followed by the abdomen, chin and chest. The procedure takes a few hours and results don’t show until a few months. Downtime: 3 days

Skin Resurfacing

Fractional skin resurfacing is a great way to remove age spots, reduce fine lines and stimulate collagen in the skin. There are two types: ablative and non-ablative. The non-ablative has less down time but the results are not as good as the ablative, which usually uses the CO2 laser platform. Downtime: 10 days

Fat Transfer

Fat that is removed with liposuction can be used to fill lines on the face, plump cheek bones and chins, fill acne scar indentations, enlarge the buttocks, and even increase the girth of the penis. Downtime: 2 weeks

Tissue Tightening

There are three different technologies for tissue tightening. For superficial tightening of the skin, lasers can be used; for deep level tightening of skin, radiofrequency devices like Pelleve can be used; and for the deepest tightening, ultrasound can be used. The tightening is induced when there is heat damage to the respective layer of skin and subsequent collagen production. I like using Pelleve on the face, especially in conjunction with other procedures. Downtime: none
