Our hands are one of the first places to start showing visible signs of aging due to natural aging and exposure to sunlight. Some of the common signs of aging on the hands include dark spots, pre-cancerous growths and loss of fatty tissue. Hand reconstruction can also repair tendon injuries, birth defects, cyst removal, trigger finger and joint deformities caused by rheumatoid arthritis RA. It can also relieve the pain and pressure of carpal tunnel syndrome. At Nazarian Plastic Surgery, we offer various hand treatment options and one treatment or a combination can be used to help restore your beautiful hands. Success in facial plastic surgeries is dependent on the education, skill, training, qualifications and experience of the plastic surgery team performing the procedures and the support staff.

Whether your fingers are short and pudgy or long and lean is a matter of genetics, and you can't change your genes. But, if you're finding your fingers a bit fatter than usual and they feel tight and puffy so that it's hard to remove your rings, you can take some action to slim them down. Losing excess weight helps reduce excess fat on your hands -- along with fat on other parts of your body. Fat fingers may also be a result of fluid retention that can be decreased with dietary changes.
Although complications are not common after the open surgical technique, a small but significant group of patients will have similar symptoms after surgery or will experience new symptoms in the postoperative period. Incomplete section of the TCL is the major cause of these complications. The authors have described two signs that confirm a complete release of the TCL, called the "fat pad" and "little finger pulp" signs. All patients were examined 6 months after the procedure, with special attention given to the persistence or recurrence of symptoms.
Fat grafting has been successfully used for reconstructive and esthetic surgery of the breast, face, and other body parts. In this article, we present our protocol for hand fat grafting and over a decade of clinical experience. Fat tissue is obtained from the flanks, peri-umbilical region, or internal side of the thigh or knee. No centrifuge machine is used to prevent fat damage. After decantation, fat is injected into the dorsum of the hand using a cannula from the wrist and not from the fingers.
