The science and techniques of biologics, such as nanofat, represent a revolution in the area of cosmetic facial rejuvenation. Fat grafting represents a wave of modern plastic surgery.
Nanofat enables cosmetic surgeons to use natural tissue, minus the possibilities of allergic responses or viral transmission. Stemming from this, this fat has a higher concentration of stem cells compared to bone marrow.
Fortunately, with nanofat, any surgeon can process the fat for facial enhancement procedures since the FDA considers it to be fat without biological modification. Surgeons inject nanofat intracutaneously to enhance the texture and tone of the skin.
As the fat is highly processed, the surgeon can actually inject it through a 27 to 30-gauge needle for true intradermal injections. Skilled surgeons are using nanofat for multiple facial procedures to treat wrinkles, fine lines, dyschromia, and sites of hyperpigmentation.
They use traditional fat for treating deeper creases and wrinkles. If they want to enhance the decolletage, neckline, crow’s feet, intraorbital area, and perioral rhytides, they will utilize nanofat as it enables them to go directly intradermally and help enhance those sites.
Modern Body Contouring & Laser Center (MBody), led by board certified plastic surgeons Dr. Burton M. Sundin and Dr. Reps B. Sundin, provides advanced nanofat based treatments to patients in Northern Virginia, Washington DC, Vienna, McLean, Loudoun, Ashburn, Tysons Corner, Reston, Arlington, Chevy Chase, Richmond, Fredericksburg, and surrounding communities.
Nanofat Harvest Points in the Body
It was challenging to inject fat into the neck area to achieve an acceptable outcome before nanofat. However, the surgeons can now harvest nanofat from regions such as the knees as it is most comfortable for the patient, the fat is readily harvested and contoured, and typically, there is minimal to no bruising.
Other common sites for nanofat harvesting are the periumbilical and flanks. A surgeon can initially perform fat grafting after a facelift and, if necessary, laser resurfacing. After this, they may inject platelet-rich plasma (PRP) and, lastly, nanofat. The maximum outcomes of the nanofat portion manifest between two to four months.
The texture and tone of the skin improve significantly with one treatment section of combined therapy. However, it takes between three to four months to really begin to see the true stem cell or biological effect.
Several patients set up a second combination treatment at up to one year. There are now devices available that make it easier to prepare nanofat for injection. When injected intradermally, there is minimal risk of embolization, as the body can naturally renew the tissue from within.
Restoring Facial Youth with Nanofat
Upon being injected into the facial tissue, nanofat will rejuvenate compromised cells, smooth out wrinkles and fine lines, and volumize the followed out and depleted sites (such as the temples, cheeks, and lines around the mouth). Nanofat treatment can help develop a more chiseled chin area and jawline. It can enhance facial texture and elasticity and offer a more uniform tone.
Tiny quantities of nanofat can be injected into the lips to augment their plum appearance and remove fine lines surrounding the lips. Moreover, nanofat injectable treatment can also help develop smoother skin in the neck region to offer more natural and consistent outcomes for the neck and face.
