Who is a Good Candidate for a Hand Fat Transfer?

Thankfully, hand fat transfer is consider a minor procedure.

Advantages of Hand Fat Transfer

Our patients find hand fat transfer highly appealing for several compelling reasons:

  • Reversal of the natural decline in fat and collagen due to aging and exposure to the elements
  • Utilization of your body's own fat as a filler, minimizing the risk of allergic reactions
  • Long-lasting results that endure for years
  • Diminish the signs of aging of the back of the hands
  • Correction of a thin, veiny, or "bony" appearance
  • Hands that feel soft and supple
  • Authentic appearance compared to synthetic fillers
  • Convenient combination with other fat transfer procedures to address facial wrinkles and more

Hand Fat Transfer Steps

Hand fat transfers, also known as micro-lipo injections or autologous fat transplantation, offer a simple and direct solution. The procedure follows these steps:

  1. Liposuction is gently performed to extract healthy fat from another body area, typically the abdomen, thighs, or flanks.
  2. The harvested fat undergoes purification and preparation for grafting in the Puregraft System.
  3. Using a fine needle and cannula, the purified fat is meticulously injected into areas of the hand lacking vitality and volume.
  4. To accommodate the body's natural absorption of injected fat, an extra amount is administered, ensuring sustained results even after absorption.
  5. Gentle massage is applied to ensure uniform fat distribution, fulfilling your aesthetic objectives and rejuvenating your hands.
  6. Post-procedure, many patients witness a remarkable rejuvenation, perceiving their hands as much as 10 to 20 years younger.
  7. We often combine this with laser rejuvenation to give the hands a youthful, beautiful glow.

Fat Transfer Recovery

In the days following hand fat transfer, you may encounter mild redness, discomfort, and potential bruising at the injection sites. Your hands may also appear swollen or puffy. However, these side effects typically diminish swiftly, and prolonged rest or recovery isn't typically required.

Applying cold compresses can expedite relief from these effects. However, it's important not to exert excessive pressure, as this could inadvertently displace fat in your hands. Some of these side effects may persist for about seven to 10 days. Recovery from this procedure is minimal.
