Fat Transfer to the Back of the Hands for Volume Loss
Our hands are among the first parts of us to show visible and dramatic signs of aging. Our hands give away our age just as much as our faces do. Signs of aging on the face are the first things anyone notices about a person. But our hands are also prominent features. After the face and neck, they are perhaps the most visible and public parts of our bodies.
For this reason, we offer our patients a full range of hand rejuvenation treatments to restore their hands to their youthful appearance.
The human hand undergoes the ravages of aging in much the same way the face does. The soft tissue in the hands, which give them their volumizing appearance, gradually depletes as we age, leaving the veins, tendons and bones hidden in our youth more prominent and visible. The skin of the hands, like that on the face, becomes looser and more wrinkled as we age. It also receives as much sun exposure as the face, and are nearly always less protected. As a result, they suffer from pigmentation issues and textural problems in age.
Hand Rejuvenation Treatments
While our hands may suffer in the same as our faces, they can be treated with a variety of hand rejuvenation treatments. There are a number of ways we can give your hands their youthful volume back, improve your skin’s texture and tone, and lessen sun damage and age spots. Fat transfer is one of those treatments that leads to long-lasting results.
How long does the fat last and how many treatments are necessary?
Fat transfers can be necessary to do once or up to three times, depending on how much of the fat that is transferred lives or takes. With each subsequent treatment, more of the fat survives as there is more live tissue to help support the newly injected fat cells. The fat transfer is long lasting and can be permanent with a stable body weight.
Can I be awake for the procedure?
The fat transfer to the hands procedure is typically done awake in the office under local anesthesia.

I am truly very happy with Dr . Nazarian. Again thank you very much for doing such a great job.
Dr. Nazarian is the a 5 star plastic surgeon! I had a growing scalp mass above my left ear, kinda like a cyst, she told me it was called lipoma. Anyway she removed the cyst in her office even when I was told by other doctors that it had to be done at a hospital which is more cost full and inconvenient for your wallet. She’s a great doctor and definitely recommend anyone to visit her office, her receptionist is on point and is very kind, helpful, and welcoming when visiting the office or calling about your appointment.
Besides being a great surgeon, Dr Nazarian carries a line for PREGNANT women called Spa Momma which is made-in-the-USA with no lead, phthalates, formaldehyde, propylene glycol, and no pregnancy-contraindicated aromatherapy oils!!!!!! I am obsessed with the body oil and the body scrub! I was having some major itching issues and I tried everything but nothing really helped. Then I tried the itchies body oil and it was the first relief I had had in months and I have no stretch marks!!!!!!!! Dr Nazarian is so up to date and science based and is willing to take time and help you out no matter what you issue is!!! I love her professionalism and recommend 110%!
