What is a Nano Fat Transfer and How Can It Benefit Me?

Everyone knows that time flies, but no one really understands just how quickly it actually goes by until the day they look in the mirror and see fine lines, wrinkles, under eye circles, flattened cheeks, and other age-related skin and facial changes.   

If you’re like most people, it can be startling to detect the early signs of aging on your once perfectly youthful face, especially if they make you look less energetic or vibrant than you feel.

Luckily, aesthetic medicine continues to evolve and progress with lightning speed, generating new and innovative anti-aging treatments and therapies on a regular basis.

Nano fat transfer, also known as nano fat grafting, is the latest skin and facial rejuvenation treatment to take the cosmetic world by storm, with an exponential surge in popularity that’s made it very much in demand by those in the know. Find out what it is — and how it can help you — today.  

Facial deflation 101

To understand how a nano fat transfer can help restore a more youthful appearance, it’s important to know a little bit about how the aging process affects your skin and face.

Most people begin to notice that their skin seems a little less supple, a bit more uneven, and has a few more lines than it used to as they head toward middle age. But wrinkles aren’t simply a surface issue: As you get older, your face naturally loses some of its subcutaneous fat and volume, making fine lines and wrinkles even more noticeable.

This so-called “facial deflation,” which typically begins in your late 30s and slowly progresses with each passing year, is what’s responsible for the flattened cheeks, thinning lips, and dark under eye circles that are so common among middle-aged and older adults.

Nano fat transfer basics

A nano fat transfer is a specialized treatment process that uses highly refined fat molecules obtained from your own body to restore lost facial volume, reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles, erase dark circles, and revitalize your appearance.  

While using a patient’s own fat as a natural facial filler has long been a safe, effective, and economical alternative to traditional dermal fillers, a nano fat transfer takes the concept to a whole new level with exceptional results.

Unlike conventional fat grafting techniques, a nano fat transfer uses much, much smaller and more refined particles of fat. Besides being ideal for improving facial volume subtly and in just the right places, these ultra-refined fat particles contain powerful stem cells and growth factors that promote optimal tissue rejuvenation.

Nano fat transfer process

Nano fat transfer is a three-step process that uses local anesthetic to keep you comfortable from start to finish.

Step one

First, Dr. Thakur uses a very fine tube called a microcannula to remove a small amount of fat from an area of your body that has excess fat. Common donor areas include the buttocks, thighs, belly, or flanks.

This micro-removal process isn’t the same as liposuction, which uses a bigger, straw-like cannula to remove larger volumes of fat in an effort to spot-sculpt a specific area.

Step two

To purify and refine the fat graft, Dr. Thakur processes it in a specialized centrifuge machine designed to separate the fat cells from connective tissue and other types of cells, effectively creating a smooth solution of pure, liquified fat.

If desired or recommended, your own platelet-rich plasma (PRP) can be added to the liquefied fat graft to improve the viability of its stem cells.

Step three

During the third and final step of the nano fat transfer process, the refined fat graft is loaded into a small syringe with an ultra-fine needle and injected into predetermined treatment areas.

Because the injected fat graft comes from your own body, it’s completely hypoallergenic and comes with virtually no risk of an adverse reaction.

Nano fat transfer benefits

If you feel that the early signs of aging arrived a bit earlier than you would have liked, a nano fat transfer can help restore lost volume, improve your skin, and leave you with a radiant, younger-looking complexion. Dr. Thakur can use the treatment to address:

A nano fat transfer can also be used to restore lost volume and improve skin on other areas of your body, including your neck, décolletage (upper chest), and hands.
