The Problem

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.

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.

Our Team

The Private Clinic has only the most experienced Surgeons, Doctors and Nurses in their respective fields, so you can be confident you are in safe hands.

Hand Fat Transfer

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.

The Results

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.

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, which is fully redeemable against your treatment or any referred consultations to other specialists at The Private Clinic.
