What to expect with Nano Grafting
Nano fat grafting or micronized injections can be performed in our office by Cosmetic Surgeon Dr. Sofia Rubbani, who has extensive experience in fat transfers including this state of the art micro-fat grafting technique for small areas such as the face, decollete and under eyes. Dr. Rubbani is a highly acclaimed body sculpting expert performing other fat grafting procedures, including natural breast augmentation, and body fat transfer.
With the help of local anesthetic to ensure patient comfort, a small needle attached to a syringe is injected into an area with excess fat. Common areas may include the buttocks, abdomen, or flanks. After the fat is removed, it’s spun in a centrifuge to separate the fat from other fluids. Then, the purified fat is injected into the delicate facial contours, depending on the patient’s aesthetic goals. Since we use a specialized process to clean out the fat cells and make them “nano” we can use the same needles as fillers.
Upon the patient’s request or Dr. Rubbani’s recommendations, she enhances the nano fat with Blood Therapy or ‘Liquid Gold.’ The growth factors found in the patient’s blood with Blood Therapy help to improve the longevity and effectiveness of the results. This serum is used to improve the overlying skin’s texture and appearance. Progressively, these results will continue to improve over time.
Benefits of Nano Fat Grafting
Nano fat grafting is specifically produced to correct very refined contours of the face, which is an excellent alternative to more traditional methods, such as dermal fillers. Nano fat grafting is also safe, economical and effective, where there is no chance of allergic reaction and it can be done in the office. Finally, nano fat transfer results last much longer than traditional methods by stimulating regenerative facial structures, such as natural collagen production at a molecular level.
Risks of Fat Transfer
Facial fat sculpting offers several major benefits. In addition to correcting problems of the aging face, autologous fat transfer is natural. The material used is not from an animal, or a cadaver, or a synthetic product. It’s also versatile; the fat can be used for many facial imperfections, including scars and depressions in the skin. The effects of facial fat sculpting are very long-lasting – facial fat injections last significantly longer than cosmetic injectables and facial fat-sculpting is safe since there are no allergic reactions or abscess formations to worry about because the fat transplantation is from your own body.
Microlipoinjection is also an excellent complement to facial resurfacing procedures, such as Fraxel, chemical peels, Botox, Thermage and Kybella. The risks of fat transfer/fat injection are few and minimal. Soreness and swelling are possible, but they’re not commonly experienced. The donor site may be sore and slightly bruised. We will go over all these issues thoroughly during the consultation.
If you have further questions about Nano Fat grafting facial fat transfer, such as whether it’s appropriate for your unique facial rejuvenation needs, or how it compares with other facial filler procedures, please come in for a consultation.
