Hand plastic surgery, also known as hand rejuvenation, is a specialized surgical procedure that aims to improve the appearance and function of hands. This procedure is done to fix hand problems, such as age-related changes, sun damage and injuries.
Types of Hand Plastic Surgery
There are different types of hand plastic surgery, each addressing a particular hand problem. These include the following:
A hand lift, also known as hand rejuvenation, is a cosmetic procedure to restore a youthful appearance to the hands. This procedure involves injectable fillers, fat grafting or laser resurfacing to plump up the skin and remove fine lines and wrinkles. Hand lifts can also help to reduce the appearance of age spots and improve the overall texture of the skin on the hands.
Hand reconstruction surgery is a complex surgical procedure that aims to restore function and form to hands damaged due to injury or disease. This procedure may involve using skin grafts, tissue flaps or bone grafts to repair or replace damaged tissues. Hand reconstruction surgery can treat various conditions, including carpal tunnel syndrome, Dupuytren’s contracture and arthritis.
What to Expect from Hand Plastic Surgery
If you are considering hand plastic surgery, consulting with a qualified plastic surgeon at Vantage Plastic Surgery is essential. During your first appointment, Dr. Aleksandr Shteynberg will examine your hands and discuss your goals and concerns. He will then recommend the most appropriate type of hand plastic surgery for your unique needs and create a customized treatment plan.
Hand plastic surgery is typically performed under local or general anesthesia, depending on the procedure type. The length of the procedure will vary depending on the complexity of the surgery, but most hand plastic surgery procedures take between one and three hours to complete.
After the surgery, you must rest and recover for a few days. Dr. Shteynberg will provide detailed postoperative instructions and prescribe pain medication if necessary. You must also wear a splint or cast to protect your hands while they heal.
