Fat grafting has become one of the most effective and popular options for body contouring— it works by removing fat from a donor area on the body through liposuction before injecting it into areas of low volume. Its most popular uses are in the breasts, buttocks, and face, but it’s a highly-versatile procedure and comes with some great benefits. Nanofat grafting is a new technique that uses the latest in stem cell developments to produce even greater results with even greater benefits. Here’s what to know about this new fat grafting technique.
Fat grafting is one of the most effective procedures available when it comes to enhancing the body where you want it. This is because fat can act as a natural filler that comes with a lesser risk of reaction and the benefit of fat reduction in your donor areas. Fat tissue is much more robust and less prone to fading over time like traditional dermal fillers, meaning many patients find long-term results.
How do stem cells help?
Some of the latest advancements in stem cell treatments include the use of fatty tissue. This is because fat contains a highly-concentrated amount of mesenchymal stem cells, which can be extremely beneficial in boosting your body’s regenerative functions. Additionally, growth factors can also be used to regulate stem cell functions to boost cell turnover and rejuvenation. When the collected fatty tissue is processed into these valuable forms, it can produce some of the most rejuvenating results possible with minimally-invasive techniques.
How can Nanofat be used?
Nanofat is an extremely effective skin rejuvenation treatment that can be used to treat many signs of aging. Likened as a step above platelet-rich plasma treatments, Nanofat can address concerns like fine lines and wrinkles, sun-damaged skin, and dark eye circles. Some of the benefits include that Nanofat requires only a small amount of fat from the donor area, meaning even toned and fit patients can enjoy great results.
What can I expect after treatment?
Nanofat requires very little downtime, although you can expect some bruising and swelling at your donor site. You may be required to wear a compression garment to aid healing, but you can generally return to your regular activity level within a week. Most patients see results with nanofat for the long term, making nanofat an extremely worthwhile alternative to filler treatments.
