Nano Fat Grafting
What is Nano Fat Grafting?
Nano Fat Grafting is also known as:
- Micro-Fat Grafting
- SVF – (Stromal Vascular Fraction)
- ALMI (Autologous Lipocyte Micronized Injection)
Nano Fat Grafting is a revolutionary new treatment and its popularity is growing exponentially (with good reason). If you are looking to improve very specific and delicate areas of your skin then look no further than Nano Fat Grafting. This procedure specializes in targeting skin areas that are very fine and delicate such as the face and the hands. It is perfect for wrinkles, scars, skin discoloration, sun damage and dark eye circles. The improvement you can achieve with this revolutionary treatment cannot be achieved with any other treatment modality regardless of cost.
How does Nano Fat differ from Structural Fat Grafting?
Nano Fat Grafting is used to target fine lines and wrinkles, skin rejuvenation and scars. Structural Fat Grafting on the other hand is used to revive the facial structure. It does this by restoring overall facial volume with improved, rejuvenating contours in areas such as cheeks, jaw lines and more. These two procedures are NOT mutually exclusive and quite commonly are performed together to achieve the best positive results.
What does the procedure involve?
The process begins with liposuction in order to harvest the fat that will be used to fill the desired areas. The donor fat is extracted using a very fine liposuction cannula, which is a long thin tube. Common areas for harvesting are the flanks, inner knees, buttocks, abdomen, and outer thighs. Unlike Brazilian Butt Lift and Liposculpture, Nano Fat requires small amounts of fat and gets collected in a special way.
The fat is processed and refined down to a Nano level and it is almost emulsified or liquefied. Nano and Micro like their names suggest, refer to very-very small particles of fat. These are much smaller than the very small particles used for structural fat grafts. We spin the fat in a centrifuge in order to separate it from other fluids. This also helps us select the best quality fat that show good prospect for longevity. This technique also purifies and reduces the particle size.
Survival of the injected fat is cr
r its success rate. When the fat particles are very small on a micro or nano level the chance of survival is greater. If the particles are large the inner cells don’t get exposed to a good blood supply and eventually will lose their vitality and perish.
Once the filtration and purification is complete we inject the fat into the desired areas. The nature of the procedure requires very precise injections in specific areas.
What can Nano Fat Grafting do for me?
It can restore and improve the appearance of your skin, resulting in a more fresh and youthful feel to your face. Many people prefer Nano Fat Grafting because it is safe, minimally invasive and a natural way to augment your appearance. It specializes on very specific areas that need minimal amounts of fat transfer.
The benefits of this procedure is that you can correct fine lines and contours in the face like wrinkles and you can also revitalize the color of the skin in specific regions. Because of its Nano nature this procedure reduces the risk of lumpiness after the injection. The Nano Fat disperses well and creates a smooth filling in the injected area. It can also be used to treat difficult wrinkles on your neck, chest and hands, as well as other body areas too.

How and why does Nano Fat work?
The results from Nano Fat Grafting can be amazing. Its success lies in its unique ability to rejuvenate tissue primarily because Nano Fat is incredibly rich in both growth factors and stem cells. This is because these stem cells are contained in the very vascular stromal fraction of the lipoaspirate which is Nano Fat. As a result, Nano Fat is incredibly successful for treating skin scars and wrinkles like no other treatment.
What to expect from this procedure?
It is important to note that you won’t leave the operating room looking great. There could be swelling for about 2-3 weeks and then you will be able to access the results. The permanent results will settle in about 6 months. This is because the injected fat needs time to adjust to its new environment. While some fat cells might be absorbed back into the body, the transplanted stem cells will stay where they are placed. These will heal the surrounding skin and repair any damage encountered along the way.
