Lipofilling of the hands

Lipofilling allows to use ones own fat that is extracted from those areas of the body where it is present in excess quantity in order to improve skin tone and elasticity. As you know, the hands and the face show the true age first of all. Therefore, our clinic offers a safe procedure to achieve the rejuvenation effect. The possibility of rejection is excluded due to the use of autologous fat, and the recovery process is as fast as possible.

Indications for the procedure

Wrinkles. The main indications for lipofilling are age-related changes of the hands skin. With age, the body fat tissue becomes thinner, the skin becomes thinner, the vessels become visible and hands become drier and ridged.

Thinning of the skin. This factor is also associated with age, the skin retains moisture worse, and its top layer, the epidermis, dies faster. Pigmentation. The synthesis of melanin occurring in the skin is broken over time, what leads to partial formations at first, but pigmentation is becoming more widespread with age.

Possible complications

Since the autologous fat, or the patient's own fat, is a completely safe biological material, it does not lead to rejection or allergic reactions. The recovery process takes a minimum of time compared to the use of fillers of different origin. But it still interferes with the body's tissues, so the following effects can be observed in the postoperative period:
