Also known as micro-fat transfer, ALMI, or micronized injection, this procedure 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.
This procedure is very effective at improving the appearance of:
Deep smile and frown lines
Fine lines and wrinkles (eyes, neck and decollate)
Botched prior liposuction
What to expect from nano-fat transfer:
Nano-fat transfer is a procedure in which an individual’s own body fat is used to plump up sunken or emaciated areas of the face or to add volume where desired. Because the patient’s own fat is used, nano-fat transfer requires three steps. The first step involves the gentle micro liposuction of some excess fat (such as that found in the love handles, abdomen, thighs, or buttocks). The second step involves the isolation and cleansing of the fat cells and isolating specialized cells and growth factors. The third and final step involves the injection of the fat cells into the targeted facial areas along with PRP, Platelet Rich Plasma. Progressively, these results will continue to improve over time. Studies show long-lasting results.
Benefits of nano-fat transfer:
Nano-fat transfer injections can eliminate aspects of facial volume loss that often appear with age, such as sunken cheeks, wasting at the temples, scars, wrinkles and furrows, and hollows in the face (such as under the eyes or under the cheekbones). The procedure is performed under local anesthesia. Nano-fat transfer 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 transfer 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. Nano-fat transfer is a replacement treatment for surgical eye, face and neck lift procedures.
