With time, our face begins to show signs of aging such as lines, wrinkles, and hollow areas. If you are unhappy with these signs of aging but do not wish to undergo an invasive surgery, micro fat transfer may be for you.

What is Micro/Nano Fat Transfer?

Micro fat transfer, also known as nano fat transfer, is a cosmetic procedure in which small amounts of fat is removed from an area with excess fat from a patient’s body and injected into other areas. This treatment is most commonly used on refined areas such as the face and can be used to address fine lines, wrinkles, and dark circles around the eyes.

How Does Nano Fat Transfer Work?

During the procedure, local anesthetic is used to numb the treatment area. Then, the fat transfer process will begin. A small needle attached to a syringe is injected into the donor area of fat to harvest fat cells. Then, a new needle attached to a syringe is used to inject the fat back into the area being treated. This new fat fills in wrinkles, lines, and hollow areas of the face to create a younger appearance.

from our patients

Dr. Cote exceeded all of my expectations. I had a rhinoplasty, septoplasty, and a tonsillectomy 1 month ago and at my follow-up he said I was above average and healing beautifully. I am very happy with my results. Recommend 10/10

Micro/Nano Fat Transfer Results

Following the procedure, patients can experience immediate results. While swelling and bruising may occur in the grafted area, this will resolve within a week. Results from micro fat grafting are long-lasting. Also, the body tolerates fat transfer very well because the patient’s own fat is being used.
