In the battle against aging, it is easy to focus on the face and neglect the hands. The hands are one of the first parts of the body to show signs of aging such as sun spots, wrinkles, spider veins, and loss of volume and tissue firmness. Board-certified plastic surgeon Dr. Michael Jazayeri can perform hand rejuvenation to restore a softer, more youthful appearance to your hands.
Hand Rejuvenation With Fat Transfer
As demonstrated by a 2002 study published in Plastic and Reconstructive Surgery, hand rejuvenation with fat transfer can help the hands appear more youthful. Transferring fat from another area of the body to the hands restores fullness of tissue and softens the back of the hands. Dr. Jazayeri typically performs hand rejuvenation using the fat transfer technique. First, he will use liposuction to remove fat from the abdomen, buttocks, or thighs. After purifying the harvested fat cells, Dr. Jazayeri will carefully and strategically inject them into the backs of the hands to create an even distribution of fat. This fat layer causes the hands to have more youthful fullness and appear less bony or veiny. Results from the fat transfer technique are long lasting, but occasional repeat treatments can help produce the greatest long-term results.
Hand Rejuvenation With Dermal Fillers
While Dr. Jazayeri prefers to rejuvenate the hands using the fat transfer approach, he will sometimes use dermal fillers instead. Dermal fillers are an option for patients who desire a shorter recovery and less downtime after the procedure. The downside of choosing dermal fillers is that the results are temporary, and the treatment will need to be repeated regularly to maintain the results.
Hand Rejuvenation With Laser Resurfacing
In addition to improving the volume of the tissue on the back of the hands, Dr. Jazayeri will perform laser resurfacing for hand rejuvenation. Laser resurfacing technology can tighten and smooth the skin to reduce wrinkles, destroy damaged skin, and eliminate age spots to help the hands appear more healthy and youthful. Full hand rejuvenation with fat transfer and laser resurfacing will have the greatest results in improving the appearance of your hands so that you look younger.
