Hand Fat Transfer Of all the places on a woman’s body to give away her age, the hands are the worst. Besides our head and neck, the hands are the most uncovered part of our body. Over the years, they take a beating from constant washing, the sun, and daily chores. Eventually, the oils in the skin begin to dry out, elasticity is lost, and the skin on our hands starts to wrinkle. In addition to the deep furrows that form, the upper layers of fat on the hand also begin to disappear. This causes the hand to appear bony and make the veins ‘pop’ out.
Vitenas Cosmetic Surgery offers the Hand Fat Transfer procedure to restore the hands to a healthy and younger looking state. By removing fat from one part of the body, such as the thigh or buttocks, we are able to inject your own living tissue back into the hands. The hollow areas are plumped up, volume is restored to the bony regions, and aesthetic structure is regained. The exposed tendons and veins will be concealed, as the fullness of the hand is repaired, and the aging skin will be supported. At Vitenas Cosmetic Surgery, a Hand Fat Transfer will rejuvenate the most used part of the body, making the hands look years younger, and no longer allowing them to be a ‘tell-tale’ sign of aging.
The results from Vitenas Cosmetic Surgery’s Hand Fat Transfer can last for years to come.
This painless procedure takes 30 minutes to one hour, and can be performed under local anesthesia or with mild sedation. Small particles of fat are first harvested from the donor site, cleaned and purified, then injected through several tiny incisions in the back of the hand. The living cells integrate with your existing tissue, anchoring it, and guaranteeing long-term survival.
There is no scarring from a Hand Fat Transfer, and there are few complications, as using your own tissue does not cause allergic reaction or rejection. Dr. Vitenas performs all of his fat transfer procedures at Houston’s Memorial Hermann Southeast Hospital or in the office.
Dr. Vitenas uses his over 20 years of experience, plus his artistic sensibilities, to expertly balance the shape of the hands, thumb, and knuckles. Vitenas Cosmetic Surgery prides itself in using the most advanced, revolutionary Hand Fat Transfer techniques available. Fat transfers can also be used to restore youthfulness, volume, and shape to the calves, buttocks, breast, and face.
