Nano fat grafting involves removing a small amount of fat from one area of the body and transferring it to another. In the case of nano fat grafting, the fat is transferred into fine lines, wrinkles or dark circles.
There are many benefits to having nano fat grafting. As it is using your own fat, it eliminates the risk of an allergic reaction occurring. It is a minimally invasive procedure which is performed as a day case, so you will be able to return home the same day as the procedure. The results of the nano fat grafting also last longer than other traditional methods.
You will be considered a good candidate for nano fat grafting if you want to improve the appearance of:
You will have to be over 18 years old.
You will need to have reasonable expectations about what the procedure can achieve.
You may achieve better results if you refrain from or quit smoking.
You will not be a suitable candidate if you do not have enough fat available to transfer.
The procedure will be performed as a day case, so you will be able to return home the same day.
Before starting the transfer, you will be given a local anaesthetic, so you will not feel any pain or discomfort.
Fat is removed through the use of liposuction. At Centre for Surgery, we use a method known as ClearLipo™, which does not involve the use of heat. Small incisions will be made, and a thin cannula will be injected to remove the fat. This can take place on the abdomen, hips, thighs, buttocks or arms.
The fat is then washed and filtered, which separates the fat from other fluids. Fat is then injected into the desired places in the face.
You can expect to experience some mild swelling and redness around the area which the liposuction took place.
Nano fat grafting involves using liposuction to take fat from one area of the body and transfer it to the face in areas where there are wrinkles, fine lines, or dark circles. It can also be used beneath the eyes and for scar treatments.
You will be a suitable candidate if you are wishing to remove fine lines, wrinkles or dark circles. You will also need to have enough fat available to transfer.
Nano fat grafting is performed as a day case, and you will be able to return home once the procedure is finished.
This procedure has a very little recovery period. You may experience some redness and swelling where the fat was taken from.
