How Does Autologous Nano Fat Transfer Work?

The main core cells in the body are stem cells. These can turn into specific cells, such as muscle cells, collagen fibers, skin cells and bone cells depending on what the body needs. Mesenchymal stem cells, in humans, are found in the bone, cartilage, and fat tissues.

Your fat tissue is a very good source of stem cells that can be used for regenerating damaged cells in specific areas. Fat that is enriched with stem cells is a great way to correct volume loss and improve sagging skin while repairing and rejuvenating the cells from within. You can attain natural looking facial rejuvenation when the fat tissue is injected in nano or micro form in sagging or depleted areas of the face.

Nano Fat Facial Rejuvenation Procedure

Local anesthesia is used for performing nano fat facial rejuvenation procedure. Your surgeon will inject local anesthetic in the face and the donor site. Fat is usually removed from the lateral thighs using a tiny cannula and syringe.

It is then filtered for separating the fat cells from blood. Purified fat is reinjected into target facial areas for enhancing volume in the jawlines, cheeks, chin and temples. There is no risk of allergic reaction since the fat is harvested from your own body. Results attained are natural and beautiful looking.

In some cases, harvested fat can be micro filtered using a NanoCube. This is used for enriching the fat with stem cells. Nano fat containing growth factors can be superficially applied to the skin for filling under-eye dark circles and improving the skin in face and neck areas.

Recovery and Results

A small incision is made on the lateral thighs for harvesting the nano fat. This is closed using sterile strip tapes. The surgeon may choose to apply an elastic bandage. Injected areas on the neck and face may have minor swelling lasting 2 to 3 days. This will settle on its own. You can go home after the procedure. However, you shouldn’t wet the area for at least 48 hours. The surgeon will provide you with antibiotics for 3 days.

Nano fat will gradually mix with the pre-existing fat in the treatment area. Results should last for a long time depending on your lifestyle and blood supply to the area. About 50 to 70% fat will remain like your own fat in the area. Stem cells will continue to rejuvenate the facial skin by regenerating cells. As a result, the skin in your face and neck will improve over time.

Cosmetic surgeons at VIPS receive patients from Richmond, Fredericksburg, Northern Virginia, and nearby areas for nano fat for facial rejuvenation local anesthesia procedure.
