As widely described in the medical literature, indications for fat grafting are increasing steadily. Lipofilling has become an invaluable tool particularly in plastic surgery, but the applications of ADSCs (Adipose derived stem cells) therapies extend far beyond this field. The initial goal of fat grafting is to treat exclusively volume losses that has shifted to the seek of the regenerative effect of the ADSCs. Today, we are able to understand and optimize uses of multipotent heterogeneous cellular populations found in adipose tissue to assist in the global treatment of the aging face. The authors describe their technique for facial fat grafting alone or associated to facelifts using microfat and nanofat grafts. By mechanical emulsification of the microcannula lipoaspirate, we produced biological concentrates in a closed system manner, which can be injected through thin cannulas and small bore needles. The previous injection of collagen stimulators and carboxytherapy enhances the quality of both host and donor sites. The addition of platelet growth factors (PRP) provides a trophic influence to amplify the regenerative response that potentiate the overall enhancement of suprayacent skin quality and fatgraft survival. The AArtS-Graft technique performed alone or accompanying facelifts offers another way to understand the concept of the aging face considering all the anatomical planes involved: sagging skin, loss of volume and poor skin quality
