Hand Rejuvenation – Fat Injections – Cosmetic Surgery in Montreal

Hand rejuvenation is a surgical procedure designed to rejuvenate the natural aging of the hands with injections of your own fat, also known as lipofilling.

In general, the skin on our hands is as fragile as the skin on our face, and we do not always think to provide the same care to our hands as we do to maintain the skin on our face.

The hands often reveal the age of a person.

The aging of the hands is primarily related to a reduction of skin elasticity and volume, in addition to climatic factors such as the sun and wind.

Hand rejuvenation surgery by lipofilling (injections of own fat) involves two steps: liposuction and injections your own fat.

Liposuction is performed in specific areas of the body where fat deposits are localized. Using a hollow metal instrument called a cannula the fat can be removed from different parts of the body such as the abdomen, hips, thighs or other places through small incisions.

Once the unwanted fat is extracted, it is concentrated. The adipose tissue (fat) is separated from other body tissues and then purified using a centrifuge.

The concentrated fat cells are then injected into the hands and wrists (if necessary) by several micro-injections at different depths to obtain the best possible results.

Alternative Treatments

One option would be not to undergo hand rejuvenation by lipofilling.

There is a non-surgical option for hand rejuvenation with fillers injections of hyaluronic acid.

In some cases, chemical peels can be an alternative treatment for hand rejuvenation.
