Fat Transfer for Aging Hands

Your hands and forearms will also be on display this holiday season - unfortunately for many of my patients visible signs of aging hands can occur even in their early 30's. These areas are also the most neglected, as years of daily chores take their toll. While most patients have an established facial care routine - hands and forearms are often treated with a quick dab of hand lotion and nothing more...

Restylane, Perlane, Juvederm, Radiesse, Collagen, Nu Fill, Fat, Silicone... so many choices

Over the past 10 years the list of facial "Fillers" has grown from one, namely Collagen, to over a dozen FDA approved products.

An intergral part of the consultation process is deciding which filler is perfect for you. Radiesse lasts 1-2 years but is too thick to use in the fines lines around the eyes or lips. Juvederm lasts about a year, but is more expensive. Fat is readily available but tends to resorb in certain areas (lips for instance) very qickly.

Here is how i approach a new patient...

Fat Transfer Should be an Integral Part of Any Facelift Procedure

As we age the fatty deposits in the healthy cheeks and upper face area succumb to the forces of gravity and "fall" into the jowl and neck area. Additionally, the bones of the face and chin area slowly shrink. The cummulative effect of the above is a sagging face.

The trademarked Tuliplift procedure includes micro liposuction of the jowl and neck area. The harvested fat is concentrated and injected right after the Tuliplift procedure into the laugh lines and cheek bone area.

The hollowness is fixed and the youthful appearence of the face is restored. Leftover fat is stored in our state licensed Tissue Bank for future use.

I recently spoke at a small internet based radio program called: letstalkrecovery.com. It was a fun experience and even after the show was over I was receiving calls on a variety of cosmetic procedures. I was also asked about scarless surgery.

My practice is in Los Angeles and I see a lot of advertisements for "Scarless Surgery". I have over 10 years of experience in Dermatology and Cosmetic Surgery and can tell you with great cetainty that any surgical procedure which involves cutting the skin will (not can but will) lead to a scar. I usually convey that to my patients during the first consultation.

As a skilled surgeon one can do a lot to prevent unsightly or noticable scars, or reduce their appearence once they have already occured. Here is how ...
