What is nano fat injections surgery?

Nano Fat transfer, also known as small quantity fat transfer. In this procedure, a small amount of fat between 10 and 20ml is liquified and highly filtered until it becomes extremely fluid yet naturally rich in SVF stem cells. This emulsified fat can then be used to rejuvenate even delicate areas such as the neck, decolletage and around the eye, including in the tear-trough hollows under the eye.

Why consider nano fat injections surgery?

Nano fat can improve the tone and texture of skin, including reducing fine lines and crepey skin, even in areas that are hard to treat with synthetic fillers. It may be combined with super enriched fat transfer with SVF stem cells for overall facial rejuvenation or used alone.

Due to the adipose derived mesenchymal cells, nano fat is more than just a filler alternative – it has a variety of uses all over the face, and because it heals and rejuvanates ‘from the inside out’. Nano fat gives an all-round, subtle and natural softening effect in the areas that it treats, as it builds on your own internal tissue structures, creating a healing response from deep within the facial tissues so your skin continues to regenerate and restore from the inside out.

We have this wonderful tissue available to us, in the form of our own fat. I am a huge advocate of using your own body tissues to regenerate your face

How long does the surgery take?

The operation can take between 45-60 minutes.

Can nano fat transfer treat dark circles?

Nano fat transfer can be used to treat the colour associated with dark circles. Nano fat injections thicken the dermis and create a protective layer between the thin skin around the eyelids and the capillaries below. The transparency effect disappears as the fat cells create a coating between the skin and the underlying structures.

The colour of the dark circle is corrected and the sunken under-eye circle is greatly improved. The regeneration induced by stem cells will naturally cause fibroblasts to synthesise hyaluronic acid, which creates volume and hydration.

What areas can be treated?

  • Face — applications include: filling tear trough, improving dark circles, fine lines in the mouth area (wrinkle injection), and the crepey skin of the neck area.
  • Dark Circles
  • Hands
  • Decolettage
  • Breast (stretch marks)
  • Buttocks (stretch marks)
  • Damaged or aged skin

What is the aim of nano fat injections surgery?

We want to rejuvenate the skin by boosting vascularisation, neocollagenesis and tissue and nerve regeneration. The result is intensely-hydrated and nourished skin. We want to make the skin look refreshed, reduce wrinkles and fine lines, and firm up the facial contours, while maintaining a natural look.

Can any other procedures be done at the same time?

The Nano fat injections can also be enriched with Platelet-Rich Plasma (PRP) to improve the longevity and effectiveness of the results.

What form of anaesthetic will be used?

The nano fat injections procedure can be performed under local anaesthetic as day surgery, meaning you will be able to go home shortly afterwards.

How many of my fat cells will survive?

Between 50 and 70 percent of fat cells survive the transfer process, establishing a blood supply, meaning the results are permanent. Mr Olivier Amar will allow for this in his initial evaluation of the amount to be injected.

What can I expect after  nano fat injections surgery?

Fat transfer is a straightforward and minimally invasive procedure. As a result, there is minimal downtime required and after the operation pain is usually mild.

Initially there will be bruising in the fat harvesting and reinjection areas, this should settle down between seven and ten and days but continues to improve with time. Swelling appears in the first few days after surgery, this should settle down between seven and ten days.

You will be asked to come in for a post-operative nurse appointment one week after your surgery. At this point your incision sites will be reviewed, and your preliminary healing will be assessed. You will come back at six week after surgery to be reviewed by Mr Olivier Amar.

How long do I have to wait to return to normal activities following the surgery?

Depending on your type of daily activity, you will usually be able to resume your normal activities after one to two days and return to gentle exercise after two to three weeks. Strenuous activity should be avoided for at least 2-weeks. Mr Olivier Amar will discuss this with you in further detail at your consultation.
