As a result, you will look refreshed and rejuvenated. So if you are worried about the signs of aging, nanofat grafting may be the perfect solution for you.

Nanofat grafting is a technique where fat cells from harvested fat are removed selectively and mechanically, leaving only the much smaller stem cells. These are then injected into the very thin layer under the skin using small needles.
Stem cells are responsible for the regeneration of damaged tissue, and nanofat may even help to repair collagen and elastin as we get older. Collagen and elastin are naturally occurring proteins that provide strength and elasticity to the skin.
Nanofat grafting is ideal for patients who are starting to show signs of aging, such as wrinkles, fine lines, and loss of volume in the face. This treatment can also be used to help improve the appearance of scars and sun damage.
If you are considering nanofat grafting, it is important to consult with a Board-Certified Plastic surgeon to discuss your goals and expected results. Book an appointment with Dr. Anjali Saple to find out if nanofat grafting is the right procedure for you.Book Appointment

Nanofat grafting is generally performed under local anesthesia, but general anesthesia may be required if it is performed in combination with other cosmetic treatments.
During nanofat grafting, first a fat graft is harvested from a different part of the body like the stomach, buttocks, or thighs.
Then the larger fat cells will be removed from the fat graft, leaving behind a concentration of much smaller stem cells.
Dr. Anjali will inject this substance into the delicate skin of the face in multiple locations. She will use a fine needle for the injection, to ensure minimal discomfort.
The process of nanofat grafting is generally completed within 30 minutes, though this may vary.
Microneedling is a process where tiny needles are used to create microscopic injuries in the skin. This triggers the body’s natural healing, leading to the production of new elastin and collagen. It is a minimally-invasive skin rejuvenation treatment that can be used to improve the appearance of wrinkles, fine lines, and scars.
Microneedling is often combined with nanofat grafting to provide even better results. This combined procedure is often called nanofat needling.
In nanofat needling, the microneedling technique is used to uniformly distribute the nanofat into the skin.
There may be some swelling or bruising after nanofat grafting and nanofat needling. These are temporary and will fade away in a few days. The results of nanofat grafting will be visible within 1 to 3 months and last for a long time.
