Fat Transfer

Harness your body’s natural regenerative power to correct under eye circles and volume loss.

At our luxury medspas in New York, we pride ourselves in offering innovative solutions that harmonize plastic surgery and minimally-invasive procedures. Fat transfer is a regenerative treatment that has long-lasting results such as restoring a more youthful and refreshed appearance. When fat is transferred to a new area within the body some of it is absorbed and broken down; however, the majority will remain permanently. This eliminates the need for multiple treatments, which is a huge benefit for patients.

Fat transfer is an in-office procedure that does not require sedation. This procedure can easily be done with local anesthesia with minimal to no recovery. The two types of fat transfer that we offer are nanofat and microfat procedures. Nanofat is used primarily to address under eye discoloration and uneven texture, while microfat restores lost volume and can be used as an alternative to filler. When these are combined, we can achieve vibrant, natural-looking results.

Best for: Under eye discoloration, fine lines, uneven texture, acne scars, lip lines

Nanofat is a specialized form of fat harvested from the body through a minimally invasive procedure. The fat is harvested via a small syringe and then processed to create a solution containing a wealth of regenerative components including growth factors, cytokines, and stromal vascular fraction (SVF). Nanofat’s properties make it an ideal treatment for under eye discoloration. The tiny cells are injected into the under eye area, stimulating collagen production. This results in a healthier and smoother skin texture and visibly reduces pigmentation. Beyond these immediate improvements, nanofat continues to stimulate collagen production, offering gradual and lasting enhancements over time.


Best for: Re-volumizing the face, hands, and under eye area

Microfat contains live adipose cells and is used as an alternative to filler. This process redistributes fat from areas with excess to areas that could benefit from more volume. Microfat is harvested in the same way as nanofat, but processed differently so we are left with a natural-form of injectable filler. It is composed of purified fat cells and regenerative components which we skillfully re-inject throughout the face to add volume. It works harmoniously to soften wrinkles, fine lines and creases, leaving you with overall smoother skin. These results evolve over time as your body integrates the transplanted fat and regenerates surrounding tissues.


Fat transfer depends on how many areas are being treated. This typically ranges from $4,000-8,000.

Frequently Asked Questions 

What Should I Expect During a Fat Transfer Procedure?

Every fat transfer appointment begins with a thorough consultation with ournboard-certified plastic surgeon. He will provide you with all available options tonbest correct your concerns. After this, we begin the procedure by injecting local anesthetic, such as lidocaine, into the treatment areas. This ensures you do not feel any pain and are comfortable throughout the procedure. The process begins with harvesting the fat from an area on your body that has excess, either from the abdomen, thighs or waist. We gently remove the fat with a small syringe that is about 10 mL, and then process this into nanofat and microfat. Theharvested fat is passed through a series of filters to achieve the correct consistency. Finally, the nanofat and microfat are injected into the desired areas with a blunt-tipped cannula. The entire procedure takes around 2-3 hours depending on how much fat is needed for each treatment area.

How Should I Prepare for a Fat Transfer Procedure?

We kindly ask that you avoid medications that may cause more bleeding. These include aspirin, Advil, Aleve, motrin, vitamin E and fish oil. If you have any questions about the vitamins or supplements you are taking please consult with your provider.

What Should I Expect After a Fat Transfer Procedure?

There is minimal to no downtime after a fat transfer procedure. Since mostnpatients do not have sedation, there is very little recovery. It is common tonexperience bruising, swelling and mild pain at the harvesting site. This allnsubsides within a few days of the procedure.

Does Fat Transfer Hurt?

Fat transfer is a well-tolerated minimally-invasive procedure. We inject localnanesthesia to the area we harvest from, as well as any area we inject nanofat or microfat. This provides adequate pain control, but we do also offer Pronox as another option. Pronox is a patient-controlled gas containing nitrous oxide and oxygen that provides pain management and eases anxiety. It is similar tonlaughing gas given at the dentist, but in a lower concentration.
