For our hands, loss of volume, prominent veins, and wrinkles are the hallmarks of aging. However, at Florida Plastic Surgery Group, these common signs of age can be reversed through volume enhancement. The results of volume enhancement can be extremely rewarding for both men and women and the procedure can be performed by on an outpatient basis.
Our cosmetic surgery team will help you decide which method of volume enhancement will best achieve the aesthetic results you desire. Our plastic surgeons know that our patients have their own unique anatomies and cosmetic concerns, and they will create a customized treatment plan for each individual case.
Fat Grafting / Fat Injection for Hand Rejuvenation
The technique of fat grafting has significantly enhanced the results plastic and cosmetic surgeons can achieve with a number of various procedures. Fat grating has a number of applications, is minimally invasive, and is a technique that can be used for facial rejuvenation, breast reconstruction, and soft-tissue voids. Autologous fat grafting is performed by carefully harvesting the fat with liposuction from your abdomen, hips, thighs, or buttocks. This step of fat removal is considered an added benefit for most patients when undergoing this procedure. After the fat is delicately processed to remove everything except your own body’s fat cells, the concentrated fat is injected with small needles, eliminating the need for any incision. Some overcorrection is required as not all of the fat injected survives and depending on the indication, and a second stage of fat grafting may be required.
Radiesse® for Hand Rejuvenation
Radiesse® consists of smooth calcium hydroxyapatite (CaHA) microspheres that are suspended in a water-based gel, stimulating collagen production in the body. Radiesse® must be injected carefully to prevent clumping or abnormal deposits, but when performed correctly, this treatment can greatly enhance the aesthetics of your hand. Therefore, our doctors will personally perform the injections to minimize complications and discomfort while ensuring your results last as long as possible. Many of our patients experience dramatic changes after Radiesse® treatments and the results can last 1 year or more.
Some topical numbing cream or nerve blocks are used prior to injection to ensure your comfort and minimize any pain associated with the injections. Patients can return to their normal activities the same day of their treatment. Any minor swelling or bruising will resolve quickly.
