What is Nano Fat Transfer?
Nano fat transfer, also known as micro fat transfer, is a cosmetic procedure where small amounts of fat are removed from an area with excess fat and injected into another area where the fat can be used for corrective work. The treatment is commonly used on the face and can be used to treat fine wrinkles and dark circles around the eyes. The treatment is also referred to as nano fat grafting and micro fat grafting.
Micro fat grafting, while not preferred for more dramatic changes to the face, is the preferred and economical option for treating minor signs of aging. Dr. Moretz and the staff at Face of Beverly Hills look forward to working with you to determine if this procedure will fulfill your needs completely.
Most patients in good health simply looking to reverse minor signs of aging are good candidates for nano fat grafting.
Patients typically undergo micro fat transfer to correct or treat the following signs of aging:
- Sunken appearance or dark circles around the eyes
- Wrinkles and fine lines
More severe symptoms of aging in the face, such as sagging skin or spotting, can be treated with other facial procedures. Other procedures for more dramatic changes and results include the MAC Couture Lift, Dracula Therapy and LipoTransfers & Fillers.
Dr. Mac will begin the procedure by administering a local anesthetic for your comfort and a syringe will be injected into an area with excess fat. Common areas for acquiring the donor fat include the abdomen, flanks or buttocks. The removed fat is placed in a centrifuge which separates the fat from other fluids. The isolated fat is then injected into the places where it is needed on the face as determined prior to your scheduled procedure. This new fat fills in wrinkles and hollow areas of the face to restore the appearance of youth.
Nano fat transfer may be enhanced through the use of PRP, or platelet-rich plasma. PRP, also known as autologous conditioned plasma, is a concentrated solution derived from whole blood, centrifuged to remove red blood cells. This concentrate of platelet-rich plasma protein contains growth factors which can help with regenerative processes such as healing. In nano fat grafting, the PRP can improve the effectiveness and longevity of the results.
Micro fat grafting, like other procedures that use the body’s own tissue and/or blood in the treatment, is also resistant to complications such as allergic reaction. As the nano fat grafting does not utilize foreign material, the body is highly unlikely to reject the transfer. It is typically one of the most efficient, safe procedures you can undertake to reverse minor signs of aging.
As always, Dr. Moretz is available to help you determine if micro fat transfer is right for you. Additionally, Dr. Mac can provide some tips in taking care of your skin before, during and after the procedure to ensure results last as long as possible.
