If you would like to combat signs of aging and naturally rejuvenate your appearance, without incisions, anesthesia, or downtime, then nano fat grafting may be right for you.

Unlike dermal fillers, an autologous fat transfer restores volume and youthful facial contours with fat cells from the patient’s own body.

This key difference provides increased safety, efficacy, and longevity and offers an excellent alternative to injectables as well as surgery.

To learn more about nano fat grafting and what patients can expect from the procedure, read on.

What is Nano Fat Grafting?

Nano fat grafting is a minimally-invasive procedure in which fat is removed from one area of the body and transferred to areas of the face with defined contours.

It utilizes tiny particles of fat to rejuvenate the face and correct signs of aging, which is why the procedure is referred to as “nano.”

What CoNcerns Can Nano Fat Grafting Treat?

Nano fat grafting can treat many of the same areas and concerns as dermal fillers, but provides longer-lasting results.

In fact, individuals often seek this in-office procedure to improve the appearance of fine lines, wrinkles, dark circles around the eyes, under eye hollows, sunken temples

sagging and deflated cheeks, deep smile and frown lines, thin lips, aging hands, and contour irregularities post-liposuction.

How is the Procedure Performed?

Nano fat grafting can be performed in an office-setting, using local anesthesia. This means that patients will be awake, but unable to feel any pain or discomfort.

During the procedure, a small amount of fat is removed from the patient’s love handles, abdomen, thighs, or buttocks via liposuction. The collected fat is then spun in a centrifuge, which separates fat from other fluids.

Finally, emulsified nano particles of fat are placed in a syringe and precisely injected, using a thin needle or cannula.

How MAny Treatments Are Recommended?

Approximately 60-80% of the autologous fat cells are viable after injection. As a result, most patients need 2-3 nano fat grafting treatments to achieve optimal antiaging effects.
