Nano Fat Grafting

What is Nano Fat Grafting Transfer?Nano fat grafting is an aesthetic procedure in which fat rich mesenchymal cells are harvested from one body part and injected into the targeted body part. It involves the innovative concept of injecting bioactive adipose-derived cellular matrix.

The Virginia Institute of Plastic Surgery (VIPS), led by board certified plastic surgeons Dr. Burton M. Sundin and Dr. Reps B. Sundin, provides nano fat grafting to patients in Richmond, Fredericksburg, Northern Virginia, and surrounding communities.

Understanding Nano Fat

Nano fat grafting or micronized injection is a refined and specific fat transfer technique. It involves removing minimal fat amount from the body and injecting it where required. The size and component of the fat graft determines whether the procedure is micro fat or nano fat.

The term ‘nano’ is used for describing tiny fat particles that are emulsified under sterile conditions before injecting. More refined fat graft is known as nano-fat. Micro fat is put through a centrifuge whereas nano fat is emulsified.

Nano Fat Grafting Mechanism

Nano fat grafting makes use of minimum matrix parcels and a stromal vascular fraction. This concoction includes fat cells, growth factors and other rejuvenating materials. The fat derived from mesenchymal cells is important to tissue repair and regeneration. Nano fat grafting involves an additional step as opposed to conventional fat grafting methods. It liquifies the fat before grafting.

Nano Fat Graft is a Versatile Treatment

Nano fat grafting procedure is used for treating areas that defined contour, such as dark circles or sunken appearance around the eyes, temples, fine lines, tear troughs, and wrinkles. It can be used for facial restoration as well as for adding volume and contour to the breasts and buttocks.

Nano fat grafting enables treating skinny lines and thinning skin associated with aging. It enables restoring the contour and shape of the treated area while rejuvenating the overlying skin. The procedure is a safe and minimally invasive alternative to facial rejuvenation. It makes use of thin injections for finesse and easier recovery.

Nano fat grafting can be easily combined with chemical peels and laser skin resurfacing techniques.

Treatment Areas

Nano fat grafting is used for treating the following aging signs:

Wrinkles Fine facial lines Neck lines Scars Stretch marks Perioral Lines Grooves and irregularities that occur in the skin Rhytides (perioral) Periorbital skin (esp. dark lower eyelids) Areola Rejuvenation Sun damage in décolletage area Nasolabial Folds (laugh line) Lip Rejuvenation

Suitable Candidates for Nano Fat Grafting

Candidates with the following concerns and requirements are suitable for nano fat grafting:

Patients that lack volume in the face Reduced pigmentation Improved quality of skin Depressions in body areas Enhanced volume in breasts and buttocks Improved facial contour

Local Anesthesia

Nano fat grafting only requires local anesthesia or oral sedation. The procedure is performed as an in-office procedure. You can return home the same day without any problems or delays. There is no significant downtime involved to nano fat grafting.

However, you should follow the surgeon’s instructions and advice for a safe recovery. Cosmetic surgeons at VIPS receive patients from Richmond, Fredericksburg, Northern Virginia, and nearby areas for nano fat grafting.
