While your hands might not be the first thing others notice about you as you go through your day, it can still feel frustrating when you notice that your hands look more wizened and aged than you’d prefer them to. Few things can feel as pleasing as youthful, healthy-looking hands, which is why we offer hand rejuvenation with fat grafting to patients in Wausau, Stevens Point, and the nearby areas.
Recovering from Hand Rejuvenation
For the most part, hand rejuvenation is relatively simple. The anesthesia required for the liposuction portion of the procedure will depend on the size and location of your treatment area. Still, these incisions tend to be small, with minimal swelling and bruising present after your procedure.
The injections themselves are quite simple, and can be performed with the aid of little more than a numbing cream or some other type of local anesthetic. Of course, every patient is different, and Dr. Markelov will talk though the particulars of your procedure with you before the actual day.
In addition to some tenderness in the donor area, it’s quite normal to deal with some relatively mild bruising and sensitivity in the treatment area. This will fade over the course of a day or two, and you’ll start to notice your final results setting in over the next week or so.
