Hand rejuvenation is a surgical procedure designed to rejuvenate the natural aging of the hands and harmonise the youthful appearance of the face with the hands that usually age more.

Hands often betray the age of a person.

The aging of the hands is primarily related to the reduced elasticity and volume of the skin (collagen and fat) and environmental factors such as the sun, wind and cold.

Two interventions in esthetic surgery, liposuction and fat injection, are strategically applied for hand rejuvenation. The liposuction is performed in specific parts of the body where fat deposits are localised, using a hollow metal surgical instrument called a cannula. The fat can be obtained from different parts of the body such as the abdomen, hips, thighs and other places through small incisions.

Once the unwanted fat is extracted, it is concentrated. The adipose tissue is separated from other body tissues and then purified. The processed fat is then re-injected to the hands by multiple injections at different depths to obtain the best results.

Alternative treatments

Hand rejuvenation is an elective surgery. One option would be not to undergo hand rejuvenation. Hand rejuvenation is possible with hyaluronic acid fillers. In some cases, chemical peels can be applied to rejuvenate the hands.
