Hand Fat Transfer
As you age your skin thins, exposing the veins, tendons and bones to a far greater extent. Hands are also difficult to treat and with the complex structure and number of bones, tendons and muscles in hands, treatment requires specialist experience.
Popularity of hand rejuvenation has increased immensely as people are becoming more aware of the possible treatments that are available. As well as temporary fillers, IPL and skin peels The Private Clinic has now started offering the revolutionary new Fat Transfer to the hands. This not only volumises the back of the hand and makes the tendons and bones less obvious, but also disguises the visible veins. We usually use the Fat Transfer in combination with IPL to remove sun-spots.
As we age we concentrate on rejuvenating and caring for our face. What most people forget are their hands. The texture of the skin of the hands can give ones age away and possibly make you appear older than you are, especially since hands are a sun-exposed part of our body.
A small amount of fat is harvested under local anaesthetic from a discrete part of your body (typical areas used include: inner thighs, abdomen and flanks). The fat is then filtered and injected into the back of the hands via a tiny cannula under local anaesthetic. The cannula is specialised to avoid any damage to the arteries and to avoid as much tissue disruption as possible. There is no scarring and it is a walk-in walk-out procedure with no downtime.
Fat Transfer Hands Advantages:
Once the fat has integrated into the tissue of the back of the hands, it remains there permanently (as long a weight is maintained). This is in contrast to filler treatments that need be repeated every 6-9 months.
Each patient’s body reacts differently but results typically last for a number of years, eventually requiring a top-up to maintain the original effect.
There is no downtime associated with this procedure. It is a non-invasive, walk-in walk-out procedure performed under local anaesthetic with no scarring. Depending on how much fat is harvested during liposuction and the area, your doctor may advise you to undergo a course of MLD Massage to aid your healing. This will be explained during consultations and post-treatment.
As an autologous procedure, it is your own fat cells that are transferred, which helps to produce a healthy, natural result with minimum risk. The treatment is non-invasive and the fat is carefully inserted into the subcutaneous layer of the skin. People looking for a natural-looking and feeling result will suit this procedure well.
The procedure is performed under local anaesthetic with sedation or general anaesthetic so you should not experience any pain during the procedure.
Fat transfer to the hands can take 1-2 hours.
The results are instant but the full effect will be evident after the minimal swelling and bruising has gone. Expect the swelling and bruising to last 1-2 weeks.
Each patient reacts differently but our extensive experience as well as medical and industry experience has shown that results can last for many years. More information is available at a consultation.
You will need to take extra care with your hands to allow them to fully respond to the fat transfer.
Prices for Fat Transfer to the Hands starts at £1,850, including VASER Liposuction.
A consultation with one of our fat grafting doctors is priced at £100.

As it is using your own fat cells, which remain completely viable after the extraction, the risk of rejection is removed and the risk of associated infections that are often associated with implants and invasive techniques is reduced.
Every action is taken to minimise bruising and swelling but some may occur due to the effect of injecting into the skin, with some very small blood vessels affected.
