Adipose – Derived Cells

(Micro-Fat and Nano-Fat)

What are Adipose (Fat) derived cells, Micro-Fat and Nano-Fat?


The subcutaneous fat (under the skin) in your body contains a high concentration of special cells known as multipotent stromal cells, which means that these cells are very effective at stimulating the growth of many new tissues in the body. This procedure involves harvesting a small amount of subcutaneous fat from the tummy region, and then preparing this fat in a way that releases these specialised cells, where they can be injected back into the area of treatment.

There are two ways of preparing these fat cells, and the resulting treatments are called either Micro-Fat or Nano-Fat therapy. Micro-Fat means that the extracted cells remain in a slightly larger state that can be used particularly effectively for building new subcutaneous tissue  for things such as aesthetic concerns, like increasing volume in the cheeks or rebuilding lost volume in other areas, as it contains adipocytes, which are very useful for building supporting tissue. Nano-Fat involves breaking these cells down even further, to around 400 – 600 microns, which releases more of the regenerative and healing factors, which are essential for the growth and repair of muscle, ligament, tendon, bone, degenerative tissue, inflammation and other orthopaedic and musculoskeletal issues. 

The extraction process is very simple and is performed under sedation. 

Only a small amount of fat is needed to harvest a large number of cells.

What can it be used for?


Adipose (Fat) derived cells are used as a regenerative treatment, and as such, can be used to repair cells and tissue all over the body. Micro-Fat is used most effectively for aesthetic concerns, restoring lost volume, wrinkles and lines and so forth. Nano-Fat is more commonly used for sports injuries, muscle pain, bone and cartilage repair, joint regeneration and complaints of that nature.

Some of the more common uses for Adipose-Derived cells:

– Sports injuries (muscle, tendon, ligament repair)

– Joint Pain 

– Cartilage and Bone healing

– Skin Rejuvenation

– Wrinkles and Lines

– Volume Loss in the face

– Male Sexual Enhancement Procedures 

– Female Sexual Enhancement Procedures

While it can be extremely effective for many people in treating certain conditions, it is very important to note that this should not be considered as a lone replacement for all other procedures. For example, in some cases of injury, Adipose derived cell therapy may eliminate the need for procedures such as surgery, however in other cases it may not. A comprehensive consultation with the practitioner, and a cooperative approach with all of your healthcare professionals is vital to establish these indications.

Client Reviews

Grateful for excellent care and attention to my situation.

I have been suffering from phimosis for many years now and I always thought there would be no way to eradicate it. I stumbled across this clinic on the internet and decided to make a consultation with Dr. Sam.

I was apprehensive prior to my consultation because of my feeling of embarrassment but Dr. Sam possesses an approachable and extremely friendly manner that diminished any negative feeling I had. Dr. Sam talked me through the procedure of partial circumcision and gave me an operation date scheduled the week after my consultation.

The operation went perfectly and it was over before I knew it. Since then I have been recovering quickly with no issues arising. Dr. Sam has been consistently in contact with me regarding my recovery. This is something I greatly appreciate given the difficult nature of the situation, having Dr. Sam guide me through the motions has made the whole process so easy.

I’m now a little over a week since my surgery and my recovery is going perfectly. Dr. Sam is still in regular contact with me and any questions I’ve had have been answered quickly with great effect. I would definitely recommend Dr. Sam to anyone struggling with a similar condition, I already feel like a new person. All I can say is I wish I did it sooner! I cannot stress how grateful I am of Dr. Sam’s constant care and attention to my situation.

Very happy with everything, pain free throughout

Hi I went to see doctor Sam and had a circumision done,
I was very nervous about calling the very first day after a long time of leaving it,
After the first phone call and taking to dr Sam on the phone I felt so relaxed about the hole process, he answered all my questions and over the phone he made a plan,
I went to meet him and had everything done on the same day, and it Was pain free,
The after service is unbelievable he messages to see how your doing and checks that your happy with everything, If I knew how good he was before I went I really wouldn’t have left it go for so long as I did, he really is a top doctor and most of all so friendly and professional,

My experience with NuaCell was a really good one to sum it up in a few words, it was a life changer for me.
I had circumcision with NuaCell – the staff were very welcoming and they took good care of me. My procedure was smooth and quick. NO PAIN and I was fully recovered within 3 weeks.
The results was a lot better than I imagined

Great End Result – Quick Professional Help

I used doctor Sam, and I found him unbelievable good. He was very easy to talk to and straight away he had a plan in place. Went to meet him and on the same day had my surgery and couldn’t be happier with the end result. It was pain-free during and after, couldn’t recommend Dr Sam enough. He answered and questions I had and reassured me everything was going to be all fine, also aftercare service is outstanding. You can message Dr Sam anytime and he will always reply and talk to you with any questions you might have, thanks again, Dr Sam.

Quick Resolution

I made contact with Dr. Sam due to a long standing phimosis problem I had. Within just 7 days of initial contact, this problem I have carried with me for many years appears to have been resolved with minimal fuss. I had a partial circumcision procedure carried out. Everything was clearly explained prior to the procedure and I honestly didn’t feel the slightest bit of pain during or after it. I am now almost 72hrs post procedure and everything is running smoothly so far. I would highly recommend Dr. Sam.

Male Procedure


How do you extract the FAT?

The fat is extracted in a similar way to stomach liposuction. A tiny incision is made, and a cannula is used to remove a small amount of subcutaneous fat cells from around the abdominal area. This procedure is normally performed under light day sedation so you will not be awake for the extraction process. 

Is the treatment painful?

The treatment itself can be uncomfortable when performed without pain management, however when under the supervision of a qualified doctor you should have the option of local anaesthetics and a light sedative, which can mean your experience is totally pain-free. In the days following the treatment you may experience some discomfort in the area of treatment, and you can also experience some bruising or swelling. You will be advised by the surgeon as to what to expect in your case, and will also be well advised on pain management after the procedure if this is required. 

how do i find out what i need for my case?
The most important part of the process is the initial consultation. At NuaCell, this consultation is with our specialist restoration physician and surgeon. During this consultation you will discuss your particular case in detail, and you will develop a treatment plan based on your expectations and the doctor's expert recommendations. This treatment plan will also give you a very good outline of the costs involved, how many treatments you may need, what kind of results are possible and all of the other information relevant to your case. You should never undergo a treatment without a comprehensive consultation first.
How much does it cost?

The cost of Adipose treatments will depend on the type of treatment performed, the area to be treated, and the specific treatment plan for that client.

As a general guideline, PRP treatments can generally cost from roughly €1000 to about €3000.

This will also change if these treatments are performed alongside other adjunctive treatments such as PRF or PRP, which can be the case for many treatment plans.

How many treatments do I need?

In the case of treating sports or musculoskeletal injuries, it is generally possible to achieve effective remodelling with 1-2 treatments, however this can differ between individuals.

With aesthetic treatments such as facial volume restoration, it is important to understand that each client is different, and so a specific treatment plan is developed with each client during the initial consultation and this will indicate how many treatments are recommended for effective results.

How long do I have to wait to see results?

This depends on the type of treatment you have, but in general, it can be an average of 6 weeks to 6 months before you see actual results. When you have a Micro or Nano-fat treatment, you are stimulating the growth of new tissue. Therefore you must wait for the body to remodel and grow, and this does not happen overnight. Some clients can see results much sooner, and some may need to wait a bit longer, as everyone responds differently to these types of treatment.
