Consultant Plastic Surgeon
As we age, our skin becomes thinner and we lose volume in our hands. This can make the hands appear older.
To make the hands appear more youthful, you need to increase the volume. There are numerous ways in which this can be completed, one of which includes Radiesse hand rejuvenation, which involves the use of fillers. However, many people do not wish to use fillers or any chemicals to alter their looks.
Fortunately, there is an alternative. Stem cell hand rejuvenation involves using your own stem cells as a filler. Using your own cells means there is no chance of an allergic reaction or rejection from your body.
Stem cell hand rejuvenation also offers longer lasting results, while fillers may only last one year.
You will be a suitable candidate for this procedure if you are wanting to increase volume in your hands to make them appear more youthful.
You will need to have realistic expectations about what the procedure can achieve.
Prior to undergoing stem cell hand rejuvenation, you will need to have a consultation with one of our surgeons. They will be able to tell whether or not you are a suitable candidate, or whether you should undergo a different hand rejuvenation procedure.
This is performed as a day surgery, so you will be able to return home the same day.
Prior to undergoing stem cell hand rejuvenation, you will be given a local anaesthetic. This means you will be awake during the procedure but will be unable to feel any pain or discomfort.
Stem cell hand rejuvenation involves taking fat and stem cells from one area of the body and transferring it to the hands. The donor area of the body will vary depending on the person and where the most viable source of fat and stem cells is. However, the most common areas including the abdomen or the inner thighs.
Next, the adipose stem cells will be separated from the fat cells. The stem cells will then be activated before some of the fat is then transferred back in with the stem cells.
Finally, the stem cells are then injected back into the hands. These stem cells help to regenerate new tissue in the hands.
Stem cell hand rejuvenation is a non-surgical, minimally invasive procedure, and as a result, has a small recovery period.
