Hands betray our age. With aging, frequent hand washing and exposure to the sun, pigment spots, tissue atrophy, tendons and veins become more visible.
It is necessary to correct age spots and restore volume, in order to reshape the back of the hand. It is also possible to act on small veins.
The treatment of spots is done by peels or laser and the loss of volume will be corrected by lipostructure (lipofilling) or hyaluronic acid injections (link to non-surgical ttt). It is important to be aware that the fat does not hold well on the hands because they are mobile with a resorption of about 50% of the grafts, their persistence being definitive from the sixth month.
This operation takes place in the operating room under local anaesthesia with light sedation. The quality of the skin can also be improved by mesotherapy sessions.
Your cosmetic surgeon will also offer you a consultation with a vein specialist (an angiologist) to see if it is possible to improve the appearance of overly visible veins by sclerotherapy (selective destruction of veins) with a needle or laser.
