A much heard saying used to be “you can tell someone’s true age from the look of their hands”. As the hands and face are exposed to the most external damaging influences, these are the parts of the body where the signs of age manifest themselves first. While there are many facial procedures to slow-down or even reverse those signs, for the hands this has always proven more difficult. Nowadays this is a point which has come under the attention of more plastic surgeons worldwide and various techniques have been developed to also restore the youthfulness of the hands.
Reconstructive plastic surgery has clinically integrated lipo-filling, or fat grafting, for breast- and gluteal augmentation, facial procedures and other reconstructive and restorative surgeries, with high success. Lipo-filling has the unique advantage of restoring the aesthetic harmony of your body by making use of your own body fat, as it involves transferring fat from a part of your body to the face via injection. After the fat is retrieved from the body it is being filtered and placed back under the skin in order to create contour, volume and even durable skin improvement. The idea behind this is to either place back what was naturally there, to attain the most natural results. In the following menu you can find more information on hand fat grafting.

During the procedure, fat will be transferred from the body to the hands. In order to realize this, first fat will be retrieved from a part of the body where there is a so-called excess. Subsequently this is filtered and placed back on the desired location. This is done right under the skin in order to create contour, volume and durable skin improvement. The procedure is performed under local anesthesia and will take about 45 minutes.
