Anti-aging cosmetic procedures of the hands are quickly becoming one of the most popular plastic surgery options. Aging hands are often a telltale sign of a person’s age. The skin of the hand thins and the veins, bones, and tendons become more prominent. As we continue to age, the hands begin to look worn and old from volume loss and sun damage.
There to the hands is the most natural and long-term way to ameliorate these changes and rejuvenate an aging hand. Fat is carefully sculpted from areas such as the tummy, love handles, thighs, and knees. The fat is gently placed into syringes very similar to well-known fillers such as Juvederm and Radiesse. The patient’s hands are then cleaned, numbed and prepared for the enhancement. Typically, Dr. Yovino utilizes one small skin opening that is essentially scar-less once healed. There is no need for general anesthesia since this is comfortably performed under local anesthesia with light sedation provided by a board certified anesthesiologist. The procedure typically takes an hour alone but it is commonly performed with fat transfer to other areas such as the face, buttocks, or breasts. Minimally invasive fat transfer is minimal downtime and very little discomfort and the end result is younger, smoother hands.
