across the globe fat grafting to the face is performed frequently and effectively and safely. Nano fat grafting is more of a term then a unique procedure. I can't tell you whether or not it is safe and based on your photograph U appeared to be relatively young with only a small area that needs improvement. I would get much more detailed information about how this fat grafting is being performed.

Dear Holland786,

  • Nano grafting is likely a marketing word given to fat grafting under the eyes
  • We place face in a micro0droplet technique, meaning we fill the area little by little
  • You should look at before and after pictures to see if Dr Tonnard can satisfy your expectations
  • Another option for you may be Restylane, if you want something temporary (1-2 years)

Yeah, sounds great doesn't it?  Very precise and scientific, right?  Plainly stated don't waste your time and money.  I have never seen a decent result, but I've seen plenty of bad ones.  Lumps and bumps under the skin that won't go away and are very difficult to remove.  If you want to fly half way around the world for this, please save the money, hype and aggravation. A real loser if ever I saw one!

fat grafting is a very common procedure that depends on experience and technique. Nano fat grafting seems a marketing tool. We all use micro cannulas to harvest and inject the fat in the right plane

Nanofat grafting refers to grafting the growth factors and stem cells from fat, without the fat cells.  It is a remarkable treatment for skin rejuvenation.  We use it with PRP so the area under the eye is the perfect candidate for building volume and improving the texture of skin.  I highly recommend it!
