Fat Grafting Volumization/ Nanofat Cell Rejuvenation
Fat grafting remains the gold standard and is the most economical technique for facial volumizing. This treatment will change one’s appearance to be more youthful, vibrant, and aesthetically pleasing, all in a single procedure. Fat grafted facial volumization and nanofat stem cell skin rejuvenation are very effective treatments for the entire face. This treatment should change one’s appearance to be more youthful, vibrant, and aesthetically pleasing, all in a single procedure. Fat grafting/Nanofat rejuvenation is a very effective treatment for the entire face, neck, chest and buttocks area.
- Where is fat grafting used?
• Jaw Line
Specifically developed as an anti-aging solution, Fat grafting adds volume for the anatomic re-filling of deep fat compartments.
- What is 3-D Facial Rejuvenation?
Dr. Rogers 3-D Facial Rejuvenation refers to the combination approach of using fat grafting for volume restoration and if needed facial surgery or threads for skin laxity.
Figure 1. If weight is maintained, during one’s lifetime volume is lost in the face in a linear manner. What is termed baby fat is nothing more than more fat that is present in the face than perhaps an individual desires but simply represents youth. A baby has more fat than a 10-year old face, which has more fat than a 20-year-old face etc.
Figure 2. This figure shows the analogy of “the face like a bed.” Fat grafting is analogous to the mattress, that is, it is the larger, deep volume support to facial volume. Fillers and Microfat can be viewed to fill up the duvet portion, that is, the irregularities nearer the skin surface for any area where fat does not have perfect take. Finally, Nanofat, neuromodulators and skin-resurfacing methods help to correct the sheets of the bed, that is, the surface of the face .
- What is Nanofat/Microfat/Macrofat?
Mechanical emulsification of fat to reduce particle size permitting the small needle injection capability while preserving the stromal cell viability. Stem cells are still richly present in the nanofat.
Macrofat/Microfat/Nanofat terminology refers to the consistency of fat being injected.
Macrofat and Microfat both have fat cells, but through a standardized mechanical emulsification process, Dr. Rogers Signature MedSpa is able to reduce the harvested fat to the consistency appropriate for your area of concern.
Nanofat, on the other hand, has no viable fat cells. Nanofat contains adipose derived stem cells. Therefore, nanofat is used for more delicate areas of the face, such as tear troughs, lips, fine lines and wrinkles around the mouth. Improvement with nanofat appears with a delay of 4 weeks to 3 months.
- How does Nanofat Grafting counteract signs of aging?
What makes Nanofat Grafting a unique anti-aging solution is the regenerative properties of the fat itself. These regenerative properties are able to safely and effectively slow down the aging process within the skin.
Improved elasticity is presumably a consequence of increased collagen and elastin synthesis and remodeling. The effects are most likely triggered by stem cells rather than grafted adipocytes. It is remarkable that these multipotent stem cells are richly present in fat tissue.
- Signs of Aging that Nanofat Grafting can Address:
• Intradermal volume enhancement
• Perioral skin
• Sun damaged or aged breast cleavage
• Tear trough volume and dark color
• Subdermal fine lines and wrinkles
