Aging hands, just like other body parts, are the result of sun exposure or outside forces causing skin changes and loss of subcutaneous fat, which leads to wrinkles and visibility of veins and tendons. In order to obtain a more youthful appearance in the hands, patients need both skin care and to replenish the loss of under the skin fat. Hand rejuvenation can be achieved with either surgical or nonsurgical treatment options. Dr. Sasaki offers a combination of hand rejuvenation treatments at his Pasadena plastic surgery practice.
During hand rejuvenation with fat transfer, fat is taken from one part of your body then transferred to your hands. Fat is obtained from common donor sites such as abdomen, flanks or thighs. Dr. Sasaki extracts the fat from the donor site and injects it into the back of the hands. There, it will add slight thickness to skin and soften the appearance of veins and tendons.
Other Options for Volume Replacement
Dr. Sasaki will discuss in detail other procedures to add temporary volume to the wasted hollowed hand that exposes veins, tendons and bones. Dr. Sasaki has extensive experience with the use of Radiesse® and other hyaluronic acid fillers such as Voluma® XC. These techniques require serial sessions to maintain their effects.
