Fat Transfer

Autologous fat transfer

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

  • If you have facial areas that appear creased and sunken
  • If you desire more permanent correction than is provided by temporary fillers
  • If you wish to improve your body contour, revise scars, fill bodily depressions and rejuvenate your hands and face
  • For use in breast reconstruction, to fill in contour irregularities or hide obvious signs of breast implants


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.


Nanofat injections

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.  


Nanofat has been successfully used for the treatment of scars, wrinkles, and discoloration of the skin, i.e., under-eye dark circles.
