Fat injections are another way of adding volume to the face without using synthetic fillers. The results of fat injections are long lasting.
Using very low suction volume fat harvesting with the syringe technique, small amounts of fat are harvested from the abdomen or another donor site. This fat is then processed first by separating it into pure fat by gravity and centrifuge technique. The fat is then emulsified with cannulas into the appropriate size for injection. It is loaded into very small syringes and the NANOFAT particles are carefully injected into the areas needing volume and support. The procedure is done under local anesthesia and sedation and the recovery is painless. Head elevation and ice usually is the most patients need although medication is provided for the first few days if necessary.
