What is Nanofat Hair Restoration?
Your body’s stem cells are responsible for healing and repairing tissues. These stem cells are essential building blocks that can transform themselves into any type of cell. The layer of fat below the skin is home to countless mesenchymal stem cells. Thanks to revolutionary technology, these mesenchymal stem cells can be harvested in order to take advantage of their regenerative properties. When introduced into areas of thinning hair, your stem cells can help regenerate hair follicles to restore proper hair growth.
In hair restoration, Nanofat is combined with PRP Therapy (Platelet Rich Plasma Therapy) and injected into the scalp. The application of Nanofat plus PRP causes miniaturized hair follicles to become healthier and larger, producing more robust hair growth. Nanofat increases the proliferation rate of human follicular cells and PRP is loaded with growth factors that promote rapid angiogenesis and localized cell growth. Basically adding stem cells with Nanofat, and fertilizing them with growth factors from PRP.
What happens during Nanofat Hair Restoration?
A local anesthetic is administered to reduce any discomfort in preparation for the liposuction portion of your procedure. Excess fat is carefully harvested from a donor area (typically the abdomen or thighs) using a tiny cannula. Once your fat is collected, it is spun through a series of filters to purify the sample.
A local anesthetic is then administered into the scalp in preparation for your hair restoration treatment. The mixture of nanofat is injected into the scalp, followed by an injection of PRP. The combination then begin interacting with your existing hair follicles to encourage hair growth. Nanofat Transfer Hair Restorationtypically takes 1-2 hours to complete.
During the procedure, we remove approximately 15 -20 cc of fat, liposuctioned from the abdomen area in a minimally invasive technique, that fat is then liquefied and mixed with 15-16cc of super concentrated PRP.
What happens after the procedure and how Long is The Downtime?
Nanofat Transfer Hair Restoration patients may have slight swelling, redness and irritation around the donor (abdomen) area, as well as the scalp. These side effects should dissipate within a few days. Patients can typically resume their daily activities the next day.
