Fat injections can restore a more youthful appearance to aging hands by restoring lost volume and smoothing out a wrinkled, frail appearance.
Cost & Recovery
- Most patients can resume light activity within 1 to 2 days after a hand lift
- Dr. Parker can perform your hand lift in-office using local anesthesia
- Skin resurfacing treatments can minimize dark spots to enhance your results*
- A small amount of fat is taken from elsewhere on the body using liposuction
- The fat is injected using a tiny needle, resulting in a scar-free hand rejuvenation
* Results may vary
Before & After Photos
Keep in mind that each patient is unique and your results may vary.
When we think about what we can do to look more youthful, we typically think first about our facial appearance. But when you greet a colleague, client, or friend? You shake hands. Hands that look and feel healthy and smooth can mean as much to your appearance as a youthful face. Dr. Parker offers hand rejuvenation with fat transfer for patients from Ridgewood and throughout Bergen County, North New Jersey, and surrounding areas.
Fat Grafting for Hand Rejuvenation
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.
A hand lift procedure can achieve lasting improvements that look and feel completely natural. This procedure involves fat injections using fat harvested with tiny cannulas, usually from the abdomen, that is purified and then injected into the dorsum of the hands.

Hand Lift Surgery and Recovery
A hand lift is performed under local anesthesia or intravenous sedation in about one hour. Patients leave our facility shortly afterward 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 will have you apply special creams nightly for several weeks to remove the age spots, completing the hand rejuvenation.
