Hand Rejuvenation Using Autologous Fat Transfer
Atrophy and wrinkling of the skin, elevation of bones, and bulging of the veins and tendons are among outstanding characteristics of hand aging. In recent years, there has been an increase in demand for apparent rejuvenation of the hand. A review of the research literature shows that there are many options for rejuvenation of the hand including peeling agents, removal of dead micro-dermal layers, and dermal fillers. The present study was an attempt to consider and describe autologous fat transfer to the hands. In so doing, the databases of PubMed, Google Scholar, and Science Direct were searched, and out of the retrieved 1988 articles, 30 were used in the present review. The analysis carried out by the researchers showed that autologous fat transfer is the most promising method that has recently drawn lots of attention.
