We often spend so much time, energy, and money to keep our faces looking as young and beautiful as possible. As plastic surgeons we can help make you look years younger, but often times your hands can be the tell tale sign of your real age.
That is because our hands age just like our face does. They lose fat and volume over time, and our skin becomes thinner and less elastic. This leads to thin, bony hands with exposed knuckles and veins which just give a perception of fragility.
For years, surgeons have tried injecting fat into the hands which is a viable solution. The problem can be a longer recovery, persistent swelling and bruising, and cost. Now we have some better alternatives. Dermal Fillers have been used for years to restore volume in the face, and they can also be used to restore a youthful look to the hands.
After a consultation with Dr. Arslanian, a quick and nearly painless procedure can be done in the office that will leave your hands looking youthful and plump before you walk out the door with minimal recovery and results lasting 6-12 months.
