Are your hands showing your age? As we age, our hands can become wrinkled and boney due to volume loss and collagen decline. Fat injections to the hands can help restore a more youthful look by enhancing these regions. Be it ageing or extreme weight loss, the “skeletal” appearance of your hands can be rectified with a subtle fat transfer to hands procedure at ICCM.
The fat transfer to hands procedure restores volume while hiding bones and veins that become more evident due to fat loss or ageing. The two-in-one procedure takes fat from one area of the body that has the excess to spare and uses it to fill the hollowed areas of your hands.
As a very safe and simple procedure, fat injections in hands require microcannulas and a modern procedure that offers the following:
- Long-lasting results
- A youthful look for your hands
- The slight reduction of a problem area elsewhere on your body
- Significant improvement to the aesthetic of your hands

The fat transfer to hands process
A relatively simple procedure, the fat transfer to hands process involves a small amount of fat to be taken from an area on the body that has excess. For most patients, this is commonly the hips, outer thighs or stomach. A small amount of roughly 25-30mls is removed and injected into the hands to increase fullness.
The results can last up to three years or longer, depending on various lifestyle factors and your age.
