Nanofat is a bit of a misnomer because it's often confused with fat transfer treatments, but nanofat is the liquid obtained from around and inside the fat cells, that is even higher in stem cells and growth factors than intact fat cells. Nanofat is used when rejuvenation, regeneration or improved healing is the goal, rather than volume replacement. Crepey or damaged skin anywhere on the body, thinning hair, scars and even some types of sexual dysfunction are being treated recently with nanofat.

What are potential problems or complications with fat transfer?
Every patient reacts differently and occasionally people will have no improvement or less than the desired results.Like any procedure utilizing injections, complications can include bleeding and bruising at the harvesting or injecting sites, depressions at the site where fat is harvested, and post-treatment infections are a rare but potentially serious complication. As with dermal fillers, over-correction and under-correction at the site the fat is transferred can occur. Since transferred fat may last for years, over-correction can only be corrected by removing it surgically.
People interested in having a fat grafting treatment need to have a consultation (complimentary) with Dr. Elliott first to determine if they're a good candidate, and discuss the procedure. Heavy smokers, patients on anticoagulants (blood thinners), people with poorly controlled medical problems or who have body dysmorphic disorder, are not eligible for the treatment.
