Nano fat injection is a procedure that eliminates signs of aging and creates a youthful effect on the skin. It involves the injection of stem cell-rich and finely emulsified fat that is compatible with all areas of the skin, making it suitable even for small areas. With the added benefits of nano fat injection, the skin appears younger, radiant, smooth, and firm for a longer period.
What is Nano Fat Injection?
Collagen production decreases and fat tissues diminish starting from the 30s, leading to the formation of wrinkles, sagging, and lines on the skin. Fat injections are highly effective procedures for addressing these effects and achieving a rejuvenated skin structure. Nano fat injection, also known as Nano Fat Graft, involves harvesting excess fat from fat-rich areas of the body, processing it through a specialized technique, and transferring it to the targeted areas in need. This process helps eliminate deformations in the skin and creates a smooth, vibrant, and radiant effect.
How is Nano Fat Injection Different from Other Dermal Fillers?
What sets Nano Fat Injection apart from dermal fillers is the use of the individual’s own body fat. Nano Fat Injection is created by processing the patient’s fat obtained through liposuction. Dermal fillers, on the other hand, consist of pre-made formulations containing hyaluronic acid and various substances. The distinctive feature of Nano Fat Injection, compared to traditional fat injections, lies in the processing of harvested body fat using the lipo cube technique. This results in a smoother and finer consistency of the fat. The enriched fat cells, which are smaller and concentrated in stem cells, create more effective and functional results when injected. Nano fat injections performed using nanotechnology have a longer lifespan compared to dermal and traditional fat fillers, typically lasting 4-5 years.
Where and for What Purposes is Nano Fat Injection Used?
Due to its fluid and concentrated structure, Nano Fat Injection can be easily used in small areas. It is commonly applied in the under-eye area, cheeks, cheekbones, lips, neck, décolletage, and hands. Depending on individual needs, it can also be used on various areas such as the entire face, chest, buttocks, and hips. Nano Fat Injection addresses the following issues in the treated area:
- Fine lines and wrinkles
- Under-eye bags
- Skin discoloration
- Scars from wounds, burns, or acne
- Sagging or loss of volume
- Thinning and laxity
- Dryness and cracking
Which Areas are Used for Fat Harvesting in Nano Fat Injection?
Excess fat from any area of the body can be used for fat harvesting in Nano Fat Injection. Commonly targeted areas for liposuction include the abdomen, waist, inner thighs, and buttocks. The specific areas and the amount of fat that can be harvested are determined during the examination.
Who is a Candidate for Nano Fat Injection?
The following conditions must be met for Nano Fat Injection:
- Being at least 18 years old
- Having suitable fat deposits in the body for liposuction without any contraindications
- Not being pregnant or in the breastfeeding period
- Not having any allergies or chronic diseases
How is Nano Fat Injection Performed?
Nano Fat Injection is performed in the following steps:
- The areas of excess fat in the patient’s body are examined. The amount of fat that can be harvested from each area is determined.
- The desired amount of fat transfer to the target areas is determined.
- The patient is administered general or local anesthesia to numb the areas where fat will be harvested. Small incisions are made, and tiny cannulas are inserted. Vaser Liposuction device is used to send vibrations to the cannulas, breaking down the fat.
- The harvested fat is processed using Nano Lipocube. This process involves separating the fat from connective tissue and other cell types while preserving stem cells, resulting in a purified and concentrated nanofat.
- If deemed necessary, PRP (Platelet-Rich Plasma) can be added to enhance the effects.
- The target area for fat injection is numbed, and the prepared fat is injected into the desired points using a very fine cannula.
- The injected area is shaped manually, ensuring even distribution of the fat.
- Nano Fat injection is a procedure that takes approximately 1-1.5 hours.
After Nano Fat Injection
Here are some precautions to take:
- Wear a compression garment in the Liposuction-treated area. The duration of continuous usage depends on the size of the area, typically ranging from 2 to 3 weeks.
- Apply cold compresses to reduce swelling and edema.
- Avoid hot baths. If necessary, take lukewarm showers instead.
- Stay away from high heat and steam environments such as saunas, steam rooms, and tanning beds.
- Protect the treated area from impact or injury.
- Avoid engaging in heavy physical activities.
- Do not sleep on the treated area.
- Stay hydrated by drinking plenty of water.
- Refrain from smoking.
- Do not massage, scratch, or apply cosmetics to the treated area.
Is Nano Fat Injection Permanent?
Nano Fat Injection, when processed using the Lipocube method, results in a higher quality and longer-lasting effect. While traditional fat injections provide results for 2-3 years, Nano Fat Injections can maintain their effects for 4-5 years. Repeating the procedure after the effects diminish can extend the duration of the results.
Is Nano Fat Injection Risky?
Nano Fat Injection is a safe procedure when performed by an experienced plastic surgeon. It utilizes fat from the patient’s own body, which is completely compatible and free of risks or side effects. It does not cause cancer, tumors, or any other adverse conditions.
What are the Advantages of Nano Fat Injection?
Nano Fat Injection provides the following advantages:
– Reverses the signs of aging and rejuvenates the skin, resulting in a smooth, firm, and volumized appearance.
– Effective in treating deformities in smaller areas.
– Offers the benefits of both Liposuction for removing excess fat and rejuvenation of areas requiring fat.
– Provides longer-lasting benefits compared to other fat injection methods.
– The procedure is comfortable and has an easy recovery process.
– It is an economically viable option due to its longer duration of effectiveness.
Can Nano Fat Injection be Combined with Other Procedures?
Nano Fat Injection can be combined with other procedures such as facial surgeries, dermal fillers, Botox, or Mommy Makeover surgeries.
Is Nano Fat Injection Performed in a Single Session?
Nano Fat Injection is typically completed in a single session. Liposuction is performed to extract around 20-30cc of fat in one session, which generally meets the body’s fat needs. However, in cases where larger treatment areas require a significant amount of fat transfer, multiple sessions may be necessary. In such exceptional cases, Nano Fat Injection is performed over 2-3 sessions.
Is Nano Fat Injection a Painful Procedure?
Nano Fat Injection is performed under local or general anesthesia, so there is no pain during the procedure. Some discomfort may be experienced in the Liposuction-treated area after the procedure, but it can be managed with pain medication and cold compresses. There is no pain or discomfort during the actual fat injection. Sensations such as itching, tingling, or numbness may be felt, but they typically subside within 3-4 days.
What is the Cost of Nano Fat Injection?
The cost of Nano Fat Injection varies based on factors such as the size of the treatment area, the amount of fat to be processed, the type of anesthesia, the experience of the doctor, and the quality of materials used. The most accurate information can be obtained through a consultation with a plastic surgeon.
