Fat Injections Bloomington, IL
What Is A Fat Injection?
Fat Injection is one of the hottest topics in plastic surgery today and Dr. Tattini has been doing this at his Bloomington, Illinois office since he opened his practice. Plastic surgeons have now evolved into not just cutting and removing but also restoring volume. It is this volume that is so often associated with youth.
Fat is harvested with sophisticated equipment from another part of your body and then injected into your lips for fullness, or smile lines to decrease the creases or other folds/defects that produce contour deficiencies. Dr. Tattini’s Ivy League training has allowed him to be on the cutting edge of this technology which pertains to both his cosmetic and reconstructive surgeries.
