Hand Lift New Jersey – Procedure and Recovery Information
Cosmetic Surgery New Jersey – Hand Lift
As we grow older, the top of the hand, also known as the dorsum, shows its age more often than patients like. In particular, the skin develops wrinkles and “age spots”. The fatty layer beneath the skin loses volume. These changes can make a patient feel self-conscious about the aged appearance of their hands. Improvement can be achieved with a hand lift procedure. This involves fat harvested using tiny cannulas, usually from the abdomen, purified and then injected into the dorsum of the hands.
“I am very happy with the results. Everything came out perfect.” —Hand Lift Patient
A hand lift is performed under local anesthesia or intravenous sedation in about one hour. Patients leave our facility shortly afterwards and usually recover rapidly. There is very little postoperative pain. Light activities can be started within a day or two following surgery. All sutures dissolve. Within two to three weeks, our clinicians at the Beaura Spa apply special creams nightly for several weeks to remove the age spots, completing the hand rejuvenation.
