The hands are another part of the body that show significant signs of aging. Often patients are very happy with the results of aesthetic surgery of their face and take notice of the aging appearance of their hands. In particular, thin skin on the back of the hands makes veins, tendons, and bones more noticeable, and sun and age spots tend to accumulate on the hands over time.
Fat transfer from other parts of the body such as the abdomen, back, and thighs to the back of the hand may be performed to restore a more youthful appearance. Chemical peels or laser resurfacing may also be performed to minimize the appearance of sun and age spots.
