Awake Minimally-Invasive Fat Removal, Fat Transfer and Body Contouring in Chicago

a More Confident You in under two hours

Plastic surgery is one of the most self-empowering endeavors that anyone can do for themselves when done for the right reasons. We pride ourselves on delivering natural results in an unhurried awake procedure using a patented minimally-invasive technique.

Believable Beauty

We pride ourselves on delivering natural results where friends and family will ask what gym you joined rather than who your surgeon was. Importantly, we listen. If it's important to you, it's important to us.

About The Procedure

Awake Body Sculpting

Awake fat removal and fat transfer is more effective and safer than under general anesthesia.

We believe there is a safer, easier and more effective way to perform liposuction and fat transfer procedures.  This is why our method improves and avoids the many downsides of traditional liposuction and fat transfer.

Your Comfort is Key

Long-acting numbing medication is used to ensure your comfort throughout the procedure. Once numb, all you will feel is vibration and light pressure.

Natural Augmentation

Rather than using silicone, we believe the safest and ideal way to augment and enhance your breasts, buttocks or hands is with your own natural filler - pure fat.

Our Technology

Using miniature tools that vibrate to gently remove your fat, we are able to achieve your body transformation goals in one easy, awake procedure. Laughing gas is at your control.

We use patented fat transfer technology that accurately controls the pressure of fat injected in your buttocks or breasts to help improve fat survival.

For loose skin, we use Renuvion® technology to help with skin tightening.

Inviting Spa Experience

There is no need for fat removal or fat transfer to be done in a hospital or require an overnight stay. These procedures can be done more safely awake in a comfortable and inviting setting. A light dose of gentle medications and laughing gas (at your control) is given to relax you. You pick your own music to create the positive vibes, and our caring nursing staff attends to all your needs. The result is a positive, happy environment that feels more like a spa experience than an operating room. 

Fat Removal

Awake fat removal with patented technology through tiny access sites.

Fat Transfer & BBL

Fat removed from areas of the body can be safely transferred to buttocks (BBL), breasts and hands for a more youthful appearance.

Mini Tummy Tuck

In select patients, loose extra skin can be painlessly removed awake and the incision would be placed hidden in the bikini line.

Awake Procedure

Because we use tiny, gentle instruments, there’s no need to be put under. Skip the anxiety, risks and extended recovery that comes with general anesthesia and let us keep you comfortable with our proven method.

Minimally Invasive

Using minimally-invasive gentle super-miniaturized tools that vibrate at an infrasonic frequency to gently remove your fat, we achieve your body transformation goals in one easy, awake procedure.

Minimal Downtime

You can expect to feel sore afterward, like you worked out hard in the gym, but quickly return to work after just 1 to 4 days depending on your occupation.

Happy Patient

Months later, it was evident he did an amazing job! I couldn’t be happier with my results! He also gave me his phone number after each procedure in case you need to contact him. He was very responsive thru text - do not be afraid to ask him questions after the procedure. Thank you Dr. Farrugia!

Not only does Dr. Farrugia's work speak for itself, but one consultation with him and you'll understand why he gets 5 star rave reviews! I researched over 40 doctors before choosing Dr. Farrugia because he truly understands the importance of the patient, not just the procedure. I am beyond pleased with my beautiful results and would highly recommend him to anyone!!


Happy Patient

I absolutely love Dr Farrugia. I was a bit nervous because you're up during the procedure but I felt no pain. My surgery went by smoothly! Dr Farrugia did exactly what I wanted and I'm only 1 week post op and loving my results!!!
