What Are Fat Transfer Injections?

Fat transfer injections are the perfect solution for longer-term face volumization, contouring, and filling in areas where facial fillers are normally utilized such as around the lips, face, jaw, chin, under eyes, and cheeks. These fillers are made of your own body fat and may be removed and re-injected to improve face fullness, fill wrinkles, or define features.

What Is The Nano-Fat Transfer?

The Nano Fat Transfer is a specialized approach that reduces the size of the fat that is extracted by a billion times, ultimately making it more flexible for use. The end product is a liquid concentration of small fat particles that is smooth and doesn’t clump under the skin.

With the aid of an ultra-fine cannula, this Nano fat may be injected once again into the troublesome locations. Tiny locations may be directly targeted to produce precise modifications and outcomes that seem natural since the needle is so small and the fat concentration is so smooth. These fat transfer injections are very durable, often lasting 5 years or more.

What To Expect During A Facial Fat Transfer

A “donor location” such as the belly or buttocks must be chosen during your consultation with Dr. Mir in order to remove the fat. From there liposuction is then performed to remove the fat. The transferred fat from the suction may then be applied to the lips or face once it has been cleansed for the injections.

The desired outcomes may sometimes need repeated fat transfer treatments for the best results. It is also possible to do this small surgical treatment under local anesthesia if needed as well.

What To Expect After Your Facial Fat Transfer?

For the first few days, you may need to cover up any swelling or bruises at the locations of the fat grafting using makeup. Usually within a week, any further swelling after the treatment will go away. You could notice a little drop in the corrected volume over the next few weeks which is quite normal and was originally due to the swelling.

To get your desired volume and form, the technique may need to be repeated in certain circumstances. After treatment, you will be instructed to refrain from any vigorous activity for at least one week. Additionally, while the fat grafts integrate in their new locations, you must take care to prevent compression or damage to the treated region.

Who Is A Suitable Candidate For Facial Fat Transfer?

Men and women with reasonable expectations, good physical health, and an interest in enhancing the shape of the face by reducing wrinkles and/or adding fullness are good candidates for fat transfer.

That said, they should not smoke, be in good physical and mental health, and have reasonable expectations for their service. During your private appointment, Dr. Mir will assist you in deciding whether the surgery is appropriate for you and your goals.

How Is The Nano Fat Procedure Done?

First your fat is removed from another area of the body, generally areas that hold more fat, such as inner thighs or stomach. This fat is made of larger fat molecules. The larger fat molecules are then processed right away into smaller, finer fat particles. This finer fat molecule is liquid gold,
as it can be reinjected in the same way as dermal filler. Because of its fine nature, it can be used in delicate areas such as the face, with long lasting results. Results last ten times longer than traditional injectable fillers.

Why Is Nano Fat Better?

Nano fat is better than larger fat molecules because it can elegantly replace or build volume in the face in the same way as Injectable Hyaluronic acid filler, but it lasts TEN times longer.

What Is Nano Fat?

Nano fat is your fat, only processed into smaller finer molecules that can be reinjected into areas of the face to restore volume and create youthful contour.
