Autologous fat injections are the only injectable filler treatment that requires minor surgery, but results can last for many years. Your own fat is harvested from another area (autologous means “from the same person”), typically using the technique of mini-liposuction. The fat is then purified and injected into the face to help restore volume to the cheeks, temples, lower eyelids, or other areas. Fat injections require specialized training to perform safely and achieve great results, and should only be performed by an experienced physician. Dr. Rafi is certified by International Union of Lipoplasty, and was trained by Dr. Gustavo H.Leibaschoff, the president of the International Union of Lipoplasty.
Fat is harvested from one part of your body, washed and purified, and then carefully re-injected with specially designed needles into the areas that need augmentation. It may be necessary to repeat the fat grafting procedure several times to achieve the desired result. Fat grafting can be explained as a three-stage process: (1) harvesting (2) purification and transfer and (3) placement.
When to Consider Fat Transfer
A fat grafting procedure, or fat injection, transfers fat from areas in which you have excess fat, such as the outer thighs, and injects it into areas that may be lacking in volume, such as your face, hands, breasts or buttocks. This safe, long-lasting, well-tolerated procedure produces natural-looking results.
Before Fat Transfer and 4 Days After
Fat grafting has been gaining attention for its observed regenerative properties and overall skin texture improvement.
First the fat is harveted by standard mini-liposuction. After purification, adipose (fat) tissue is then shuffled intersyringeal to create nanofat. Shuffling the lipoaspirate up to 30 times simplifies its injection. Nanofat is prepared by a standard emulsification and filtration protocol. The resulting liquid is injected intradermally or directly into the scar tissue.
The main clinical application of nanofat is not filling up soft tissue defects, but rather to stimulate tissue regeneration and remodeling. Nanofat has been used for the treatment of scars, wrinkles, and discoloration of the skin, i.e., under-eye dark circles.

A 35-year-old male patient with a scar from a contused laceration of the upper lip 1.5 years after an accident. (B) Six month posttreatment there was no elevation notable and the scar was softer. A total of 2.5 mL nanofat was applied intradermally. Reference: https://academic.oup.com/asj/article/38/4/421/4818349
A 49-year-old female patient with periorbital hyperpigmentation. (B) One month posttreatment, dark circles around her eyes have almost disappeared. 1 mL nanofat was injected intradermally per side. Reference: https://academic.oup.com/asj/article/38/4/421/4818349
A 52-year-old female patient with a hyperpigmented irregular skin lesion of the left cheek after a dog bite. (B) Four month posttreatment: the scar is less visible and irregularities have disappeared. 1.6 mL nanofat was applied intradermally. Reference: https://academic.oup.com/asj/article/38/4/421/4818349
A 17-year-old male patient with a hyperpigmented scar at the root of the nose after a nasal fistula 2 years before and periorbital discolorations. (B) Three month posttreatment the scar is smaller and less conspicuous and skin discolorations are evened out. Two mL nanofat was injected intradermally. https://academic.oup.com/asj/article/38/4/421/4818349
