If you’re looking to turn back time, no amount of magic creams can truly reverse signs of aging. As aging progresses, skin structure diminishes, which eventually forms fine lines, wrinkles, and a loss of volume in the face. Also known as micro-fat grafting, ALMI, micronized injection, or nano fat grafting, this procedure in LA and Beverly Hills is a refined and specific technique of fat transfer, where a small amount of fat is removed and injected into other areas of the body.

The word “nano” or “micro” refers to the very small particles of fat that are specifically emulsified and used for areas with very defined contours, such as the fine lines, wrinkles, temples, tear troughs, dark circles around the eyes and other facial restoration. The best part of it is that it is an in-office, very safe, easy, economical way to replace larger volume loss and can be precisely injected with a filler-sized injection needle or cannula.

What to expect with Nano Fat Grafting?

Nano fat grafting or micronized injections can be performed in our beautiful LA office by Cosmetic Surgeon Dr. Andre Berger, who has extensive experience in fat transfers including this state-of-the-art micro-fat grafting technique for small areas such as the face, decollete, under eyes. Dr. Berger is a highly acclaimed body sculpting expert performing other fat grafting procedures, including Brazilian butt lift, natural breast augmentation, and body fat transfer. We also can assist with Fat Banking should you want to store your fat for later usage.

With the help of a local anesthetic for ensuring patient comfort, a small needle attached to a syringe is injected into an area with excess fat. Common areas may include the buttocks, abdomen, or flanks. After the fat is removed, it’s spun in a centrifuge to separate the fat from other fluids. Then, the purified fat is injected into the delicate facial contours, depending on the patient’s aesthetic goals.

Upon the patient’s request or Dr. Berger’s recommendations, he enhances the nano fat with stem cells and other ingredients to improve the longevity and effectiveness of the results. This serum is used to improve the overlying skin’s texture and appearance. Progressively, these results will continue to improve over time.

Nano Fat Removal Procedure

After the Procedure

Due to the minimally invasive procedure, most patients are able to return to their normal activities within two days. For the first 48 hours, you will need to wear a facial compression bandage to help reduce swelling and to aid the healing process. The compression garment is then worn at night for the next 12 days, further enhancing the results.

While you will notice almost instant results, full results will be seen over the next three to six months as new collagen is produced.

Benefits of Nano Fat Grafting

Nano fat grafting in Los Angeles and Beverly Hills, CA, is specifically produced to correct very refined contours of the face, which is an excellent alternative to more traditional methods, such as dermal fillers.

Nano fat grafting is also safe, economical and effective, where there is no chance of allergic reaction and it can be done in-office. Finally, nano fat transfer results last much longer than traditional methods by stimulating regenerative facial structures, such as natural collagen production at a molecular level.

Frequently Asked Questions About Nano Fat Grafting

How is a fat transfer done?

A fat transfer begins with using a liposuction technique to collect unwanted fat from an area of the body. Many patients choose to use the abdominal region, although there are other options. Once collected, the fat is purified to prepare for injection. Finally, the fat will be injected into the desired areas, much like a dermal filler treatment.

How long does Nano Fat Grafting last?

The results from nano fat grafting last for many years, as the transferred fat will permanently settle in its new location. However, the natural aging process can affect these results, as it will slowly wear down the fat over time.

What are the side effects of fat transfer?

After a fat transfer procedure, patients can expect some swelling, bruising and changes in sensation in the treatment area. Keep in mind that this also includes the donor site or the location where the fat was initially taken from.

How long does fat transfer take to heal?

Most patients achieve a full recovery within just a few weeks of their fat transfer treatment. Results will stabilize in the following months, with results becoming visible about 3 to 6 months after treatment.

What is nano fat grafting?

Nano-fat grafting is a minimally invasive cosmetic procedure in which fat is harvested from one part of the body, processed into a nanoemulsion, and injected into areas needing rejuvenation or volume enhancement. This technique helps improve skin quality, reduce fine lines, and restore youthful contours. It's often used on the face, hands, and other areas requiring subtle enhancements.

How is nano fat grafting different from regular fat grafting?

Nano-fat grafting differs from regular fat grafting in that it uses a more refined process to create a nanoemulsion of fat cells, which allows for smoother and more precise injections. This advanced technique enhances skin quality and effectively targets fine lines and wrinkles. The result is a more natural and youthful appearance with improved skin texture and vitality.

What areas can be treated with nano-fat grafting?

Nano fat grafting can treat various areas, including the face, hands, and décolletage, to restore volume and improve skin texture. It effectively addresses fine lines, wrinkles, and hollows under the eyes, providing a youthful and rejuvenated appearance. Additionally, it can enhance the contours of the cheeks, lips, and jawline for a more balanced and refreshed look.

How is the fat harvested for nano-fat grafting?

The fat for nano fat grafting is harvested using a gentle liposuction technique from areas with excess fat, such as the abdomen or thighs. This minimally invasive procedure ensures the fat cells remain viable for effective transfer. Once harvested, the fat is processed into a fine nanoemulsion for precise and smooth injections.

Are the results of nano fat grafting permanent?

The results of nano fat grafting are long-lasting but not entirely permanent, as some fat may be naturally absorbed by the body over time. However, many patients experience significant and enduring volume and skin quality improvements. Maintaining a stable weight and healthy lifestyle can help prolong the results.

Can nano fat grafting be combined with other procedures?

Nano fat grafting can be effectively combined with other cosmetic procedures, such as facelifts, laser treatments, and dermal fillers, to enhance overall results. This combination approach allows for more comprehensive facial rejuvenation and improved aesthetic outcomes. Patients can achieve a more youthful and refreshed appearance by addressing multiple concerns simultaneously.

How many treatments will I need?

The number of nano fat grafting treatments needed varies based on individual goals and the specific areas being treated. Many patients achieve desired results with a single session, but some may require additional treatments for optimal outcomes. A personalized consultation with our experts will help determine your best treatment plan.

How do I prepare for a nano fat grafting procedure?

To prepare for a nano fat grafting procedure, follow your doctor's instructions, which may include stopping certain medications and avoiding smoking. Ensure you maintain a healthy diet and stay hydrated leading up to the procedure. Arrive at your appointment with clean skin and arrange for someone to drive you home afterward.
