What is Fat Transfer or Grafting?
Fat transfer and fat grafting is a procedure that uses fat to enhance the esthetic appearance of a certain body part by adding volume. The fat is procured from the other body parts, such as the hips, thighs, abdomen, arms, and neck. The fat is collected through liposuction. The accumulated fat is then purified by separating the individual fat cells from the tissue suctioned from the body. The purified fat is then carefully injected into the desired body parts.
Fat grafting is an excellent way to improve wrinkles and fine lines for hand rejuvenation. The procedure is also widely used for facial rejuvenation, butt augmentation, and breast enhancement. The injected fat provides a more youthful appearance to the target body parts.
What are the different ways for Hand rejuvenation?

How to prepare for the fat transfer procedure?
Before the procedure, our doctors will review your medical history. Explain to you the expectations from the surgery, recovery period, and possible outcomes of the procedure. Please share with your doctor if you are on any medication or recently took any medication.
What is the procedure for fat transfer for aging hands?
Fat transfer is a procedure that utilizes the process of fat from the patients’ bodies to contour their aging hands. The fat is procured from small skin openings or marks of older injuries, essentially to make the procedure scarless. The patient is given local anesthesia by a licensed anesthesiologist.
Our dermatologist carefully sculpts out processed fat from the stomach, thighs, love handles, and sometimes knees. The fat is then gently placed into syringes and then purified to be used as fillers. The process typically takes an hour, including the procurement and purification procedure. The time may increase if you are combining it with fat transfer to other areas. This minimally invasive procedure has minimal downtime and causes little discomfort. The discomfort is nothing when it comes to results—youthful and smoother-looking hands.
What to expect after the fat transfer procedure?
After the treatment, our doctors might give you ice packs to ease the pain, discomfort, or swelling. You may experience any of the reactions at the injection sites.
How long does fat transfer last in hands?
Patients often ask how long the enhancements last. The results are more long-lasting than other procedures. Not all fat injected remains under the skin. Some of it gets naturally absorbed by the body in the first six weeks. Trace amounts may continue to get reabsorbed in the body in the next six months. However, the fat that survives continues to stay just like any other tissue inside the body.
Fluctuation in your weight may also affect the volume of the fat. Our experienced plastic surgeon knows how much fat needs to be injected. They use correct techniques to prevent fat cells from dying or get reabsorbed. When done right, fat can last anywhere between 2 to 8 years.
What are the possible side effects of fat transfer?
As mentioned, the hand rejuvenation treatment with fat transfer has minimal or no side effects at all. The common side effects are temporary bruising, swelling, and pain at the injection site. Some of the rarest reported side effects are infection and nerve damage.
