The appearance of hands often reveal a patient's age as much as their face does and sometimes even more. As you age, you lose fat in your hands and the skin thins. This makes the veins and the tendons more noticeable in the back of the hands.
This is a 45-year-old lady who had lost a significant amount of fat in her hands. The veins and the tendons are quite visible. Her hands actually make her look older than she is. We removed some excessive fat from her abdomen and flanks and fat grafter her hands. The fat, that we have grafted, has replaced some of the lost fat that she had due to age. This fat will live permanently. It will camouflage the veins and the tendons in the hands. Thus, this makes the hands look much more youthful. This is a permanent procedure and should last for years.
This is a healthy lady who had a prior abdominoplasty who wished improvement in the remaining aspect of her torso, specifically her abdomen, flanks, and buttocks. she underwent an abdominoplasty with repair of the diastasis, fat aspiration from the abdomen and flanks, and fat injections in the upper buttocks to improve the contour and projection. Her post-op course was entirely unremarkable. She has gotten a very nice result with a more feminine contour across her flanks and buttocks and a flattened abdomen.
This is a lady that I have done a belt lipectomy with lifting of the gluteal area and fat injections into the gluteal area. Pre-op photos show a lot of sagging and flattening in the buttocks area. Postoperatively, the buttock has been lifted and filled with fat which smoothed out most of the wrinkles in the buttock area.
This is a 45-year-old lady who has exces hanging skin in the abdominal and pubic area. Also, she is very thick in the flank area. She has loss of fullness in her buttocks. In fact, with the large flanks, it makes her buttocks look smaller. She underwent a belt lipectomy and fat grafting to the buttocks area. As you can tell, we have now given her some shape to her waist and have gotten rid of the bulging in the flank area. The buttocks is more shapely since we have done the fat grafting.
