No magic cream can turn the time back and render you youthful, wrinkle-free skin. As your skin ages, skin structures diminish, and there are wrinkles, fine lines and loss of facial volume. But your looks can be improved by ‘Nano fat Grafting’.
What Is Nano Fat Grafting
Nano-fat grafting is a cosmetic procedure where fat rich in mesenchymal cells are harvested from one part of the body and then placed in the area that needs treatment. It involves a new concept of injecting a bioactive adipose-derived cellular matrix. It uses minimum parcels of the matrix and a stromal vascular fraction that includes growth factors, fat cells and other rejuvenating materials. The fat-derived from mesenchymal cells are critical in tissue regeneration and repair. In opposition to a convection fat grafting method, the Nano fat grafting procedure uses an extra step of liquefying the fat before grafting.
This procedure is commonly used to treat areas with very defined contours such as temples, sunken appearance or dark circles around eyes, fine lines, wrinkles and tear troughs. It can also be used for other facial restoration. Nano fat grafting is of particular value for the face but can also be used to contour and add volume to buttocks and breast.
Nano fat grafting enables the treatment of skinny lines and even thinning skin that is associated with aging. It enables rejuvenation of overlying skin and restores the shape and contour to the treated area. It is a safe and minimally invasive alternative to facial rejuvenation. This procedure uses thin injection for a more fitness effect.
*Nano-fat grafting can also be used in combination with laser skin surfacing and chemical peels.
What is Nano fat
Nano fat grafting is also known as micronized injection or AMI. It is a specific and refined fat transfer technique. Here the minimal amount of fat is removed and injected into the areas needed. The size of the component and fat graft determines whether it is a nano fat or micro fat. The word ‘Nano’ is used for the tiny particles of fat that are emulsified before applying. The more refined fat graft is known as ‘nano-fat’. Nano-fat is emulsified under sterile conditions whereas Micro-fat is subjected to centrifuge treatment.
Causes/ Why to consider Nano Fat grafting
Nano fat grafting is done to treat following signs of aging:
Who are candidates for Nano-Fat Grafting
A good candidate for Nano-Fat Grafting
*People with anorexia or athletes who lack enough fat for grafting won’t qualify as a candidate for fat grafting.
Precaution Before Nano-Fat Grafting
Following steps are taken to prepare yourself for Nano fat grafting:
Nano-fat grafting is performed under local anesthesia or oral sedation on an outpatient basis. If you are having other procedures such as facelift at the same time, general anesthesia or deep sedation is given, and the procedure is conducted at an accredited surgery centre.
The process of nano fat grating involves harvesting fat from one part of the body, purifying it and then re-injecting in the area in need of contouring. Following are the steps:
Result/ What to expect:
You can go home the same day the procedure is done, but you are advised to wear a compression garment for a first few weeks to minimize swelling and other postoperative risks. The treated area will feel sensitive for a few days. The effect of nano fat grafting is smooth, natural looking and beautiful contour. The result is apparent within few weeks. The activity of underlying mesenchymal cells continues to develop and optimum result takes 1-3 months. There may be swelling at the grafted area that goes in a few days. In comparison, to a dermal Tissue Fat Filler, the effect of Nano Fat Grafting lasts longer because it is a living graft. Nano fat grafting stimulates the regenerative facial structures and production of collagen at the molecular level. The result lasts for up to three years but varies from person to person.
Precautions After Nano Fat Grafting
My nephew was born with ear deformity and no one could find a solution for that. Someone then suggested us Dr. Telang and we consulted him last month. I must say he is one of the best doctors!✱ Opinion / Results may vary person to person.
Everybody at the clinic is very supportive of support staff to the doctor. And lastly, the most important thing is that I got the results as per my expectations. Thanks, sir.✱ Opinion / Results may vary person to person.
