A Guide to Plastic Operations
Despite using expensive creams on your face, the hands can easily reveal your real age. The back of the hand looses fat and the skin become thinner due to ageing. The tendons and veins get more visible because of that. The plastic-surgery method called lipotransfer can rejuvenate hands in an hour and take a few years back, all of that thanks to your own fat.

WHAT HAPPENS BEFORE THE SURGERY
What outcome can I expect?
Is lipotransfer exactly what you need? Do not hesitate to make an appointment for the pre-surgery consultation. You will be taken care of directly by a plastic surgeon from the very first moment at the Aesthevita plastic surgery clinic. Discuss with him/her how much fat will be appropriate to apply in your case and anything else you are curious about.
Hands make an impression
We care of our nails but our hands also start to require special care as the years go by. They can often reveal our age more so than our face for which we use quality cosmetics. To return our hands their youth is not only possible, it is easy. And no extraneous substance is needed.
Right before the surgery
When the planned date of the procedure is approaching, you will undergo the pre-surgery examination. This involves an examination of the blood count and blood’s clotting ability and an ECG. Women aged over 60 undergo an x-ray of the lungs as well, the age limit for smokers is set at 50.
WHAT IS HAPPENING UNDER THE HANDS OF A SURGEON
The unique method – Pure Graft
The fat is transferred from one part of the body to the back of your hands during the lipotransfer. The fat can be transferred from more than one body part with very thin women. The fat is sucked out of the chosen parts using vibration assisted liposuction after setting precise parameters to maintain quality. Then it must be purified.
Pure Graft using a closed system is used at Aesthevita. The fat that was sucked out goes directly to the cleaning filters and will not come into contact with the air. Cleaning is a very sensitive part of the surgery. If the fat is not cleaned using a gentle method, it would be devalued. The consequence would be its rapid absorption and other undesirable effects.
The surgeon will apply the purified fat into the back of the hands with a very thin cannula with a diameter of only a few millimetres. Therefore, you do not need to worry about visible reminders of the procedure afterwards. And not even after repeating the procedure. The scars remain tiny.
THE WAYS IN WHICH I CAN SUPPORT RECOVERY
Start by resting
The body will adopt its own fat well but resting is still absolutely necessary after the procedure. Especially because we use hands for everything we do. Do not do any activities that are not necessary in the first week after the surgery and let the hands rest. You can return to office activities during the second week after the surgery. The bruises and swelling will gradually disappear within those 2 weeks. Then you can get back to normal life without restrictions. The surgeon will assess the progress of the recovery at the ambulatory check-up.
Wear an elastic bandage for the two weeks after the surgery to promote healing and reduce swelling. Then you can start to enjoy your healed and rejuvenated hands.
HOW IT WILL CHANGE MY LIFE
It is better to repeat lipotransfer
The method of lipotransfer has huge advantages – it is gentle to the body, the recovery is fast, the look is natural… But also one small disadvantage. Because of the fact that body’s own fat is a natural substance for the organism, about 30 % of the applied fat gets absorbed. Therefore, it is good to repeat lipotransfer after 3 to 6 months to achieve the fully-fledged effect of the procedure.
The price of the procedure is final, everything necessary is already calculated. It specifically includes the following:
- A consultation with the plastic surgeon
- Compressive postoperative halter garment
- The procedure itself
- A stay at the clinic after the surgery
- A package with postoperative care
