Hand Rejuvenation

Hand Rejuvenation Overview

With time, our hands show visible signs of aging. Age spots and enlarged nerves start becoming more obvious as our hands lose fatty tissue. The resulting thin, bony appearance significantly makes our hands look older than ever. Hand rejuvenation treatments are designed to restore color and contour to our hands to make them look as youthful as before.

There are various hand rejuvenation treatment options available, that can also be combined to achieve a desired look. Patients can choose from topical hand rejuvenation, chemical peels, microdermabrasion, sclerotherapy, skin excess correction, laser skin resurfacing, fat grafting or vein removal.

Hand rejuvenation is typically performed by fat grafting, in which fat is injected into the hands, from the wrists to the fingers. During fat grafting, fat is removed from one area of the body, refined, and then placed into other areas of the body, such as the hands. The new fat contains stem cells that carry skin repair properties, which rejuvenate the aging hand.

Having Realistic Expectations for Hand Rejuvenation

Being honest with yourself about how your body will change and how those changes will affect your life is important. Disappointment may happen, especially if you believe plastic surgery will fix your life problems, save your marriage or cure depression. Having Hand Rejuvenation will result in younger looking hands. Younger looking hands may boost your self-confidence, but that won’t change who you are or the way other people feel about you.

Questions to Ask Your Prospective Surgeon

Once you’ve made an appointment for a consultation, take the time to prepare a list of questions and concerns you want to address with your prospective plastic surgeon. The consultation is your opportunity to assess the plastic surgeon as much as it is their opportunity to determine your candidacy for the procedure. Take your time, be thorough and know that you are never required to commit to a procedure or a plastic surgeon because you’ve had a consultation, even if the consultation is free.

Hand Rejuvenation involves different techniques. Some plastic surgeons will use fat grafting to achieve successful Hand Rejuvenation, while others may use Laser Skin Resurfacing. You want to make sure that you choose a plastic surgeon whose work you admire. You will be able to see the outcome of some of their treatments by looking at before-and-after pictures. Have the plastic surgeon thoroughly explain their procedure and why they value a certain technique more than others.

This list of information may help you compile your questions and may encourage you to do some further research on the many different aspects of Hand Rejuvenation:

  • Is Hand Rejuvenation the right procedure for me?
  • How long do Hand Rejuvenation treatments take?
  • Will I be required to undergo anesthesia during Hand Rejuvenation treatments?
  • Do patients typically experience complications?
  • What will my recovery be like? When will I be able to return to work?

If you’re consulting with a plastic surgeon from 1800mysurgeon.com, you can rest assured that you will be meeting with a qualified Hand Rejuvenation plastic surgeon. If you already have a plastic surgeon in mind, our qualified patient coordinators can also perform a background check before you schedule your consultation. Most importantly, always trust your instincts during the consultation. The success of your experience will be based on how you feel about your plastic surgeon, the treatment, your recovery and your result.

Hand Rejuvenation Recovery

Hand Rejuvenation offers a quick recovery. Patients typically return to daily activities and work after treatment. If fat grafting was performed, a patient may experience swelling, bruising and redness for several days after treatment.

Hand Rejuvenation Risks

Any procedure carries certain risks and the possibility of complications and infection. Make sure your plastic surgeon addresses all of your questions and concerns to your satisfaction.

During your consultation, you will want to ask your surgeon about the following risks:

  • Can Hand Rejuvenation result in changing in skin color?
  • If I choose the fat grafting option, is there a possibility of scarring?
  • What steps can I take if I am unhappy with the results?

It is important to remember that no plastic surgeon can guarantee your satisfaction with Hand Rejuvenation nor can they deny any risk factors. No matter how rarely risks occur, every procedure carries a certain amount of risk, and you have to decide for yourself if your potential desired result is worth the risk.

Long Term Results of Hand Rejuvenation

Hand Rejuvenation offers permanent results with significant improvement in the appearance of the hands. Depending on a patient’s age, genetics and the amount of fat absorbed by the hand, fat grafting can have long-lasting results. Some patients may be advised to repeat treatments to obtain the best results.
