The Power of Micro and Nano Fat Transfer


Micro fat transfer and nano fat transfer are refined cosmetic procedures that enhance facial contours by transferring small amounts of fat from areas with excess to those needing volume, such as under the eyes, cheeks, and lips. This technique minimizes risks like allergic reactions by using the patient’s own fat, which is rich in stem cells and growth factors, improving skin texture over time. Less invasive than major surgeries, it offers natural-looking results with minimal downtime, making it an ideal choice for subtle yet effective aesthetic enhancements.

Natural, Lasting Beauty Enhancement

As we age, our skin’s structure and elasticity diminish, leading to the formation of fine lines, wrinkles, and facial volume loss. Microfat and Nanofat transfers, advanced forms of fat grafting, offer a potent solution for skin rejuvenation. These techniques enhance vascularization, boost collagen production, and stimulate nerve and tissue regeneration, resulting in a younger, fuller, and more hydrated appearance.

Microfat and Nanofat transfers, which are more sophisticated and targeted than traditional fat transfer procedures, are adept at refining areas marred by fine lines and wrinkles, as well as restoring volume to regions like the hollowed cheeks and temples. The terms “nano” and “micro” denote the utilization of extremely small fat particles, meticulously emulsified for enhancing defined facial contours — including fine lines, wrinkles, temples, tear troughs, and dark circles around the eyes — yielding significantly more precise outcomes than previous techniques.

Who is an Ideal Candidate for Fat Transfer?

  • Flattening or hollowing of the cheeks and/or temples.
  • Thin lips or lips that have lost volume over time.
  • Deep wrinkles around the mouth.
  • Volume loss under the eyes causing a tired appearance (dark circles).
  • Nasal irregularities or a hump/bump on the nasal bridge.
  • Good physical health.

What to Expect During Your Consultation

Dr. Champagne will review your medical history and perform a physical exam. Be prepared to discuss your current and past medical conditions, medications, and any surgeries you have undergone. It’s crucial to inform us about any medication allergies. Dr. Champagne will assess your facial areas to determine symmetry and balance, take photographs for your medical record, and discuss your expectations and reasons for seeking a transfer procedure. Using these photos and computer imaging, Dr. Champagne will provide a simulation of the anticipated results. The procedure can be performed safely and comfortably in-office or in an operating room setting, with the options discussed during your consultation.

Preparing for a Fat Transfer Procedure

Preoperative tests may be necessary based on your age and health. If you smoke, it’s advised to quit before surgery and during recovery to enhance healing and reduce risks. Avoid certain medications and herbal supplements that can increase bleeding. Ensure arrangements for transportation and postoperative care, if needed.

Recovery Insights

The procedure may accompany other facial surgeries or stand alone. Swelling and bruising typically subside within two weeks, with minimal bruising manageable with mineral makeup. Fat is harvested from the abdomen or hips through small needle incisions, eliminating the need for sutures. Expect mild to moderate bruising and soreness in the extraction area, resolving within 7 to 10 days.

Other Beneficial Procedures:

Patients may also benefit from necklift, blepharoplasty, brow lift, midface lift, Botox injections, and laser skin resurfacing, enhancing the overall rejuvenation effect.
