Cosmetic Hand Surgery in Oakland
As we get older, our face and hands are the prime areas that are most susceptible to signs of aging. Skin loses volume and becomes thinner on the backs of our hands. The result is that tendons and veins are more visible, leaving hands looking weathered and bony. In addition to the normal changes associated with the aging process, there is damage caused by the harmful rays of the sun, which results in visible hand wrinkles and age spots.
Thankfully, these unwanted developments can be reversed and a more youthful appearance restored through cosmetic hand surgery, leaving you feeling better about the look of your hands.
What is cosmetic hand surgery?
Dr. Joseph N. Togba, a board-certified plastic surgeon in Oakland, has extensive experience in all aspects of aesthetic cosmetic surgery, including cosmetic hand surgery to correct signs of aging.
He often uses a special fat transfer procedure to greatly rejuvenate the appearance of the hands. This involves fat being relocated from other areas of your body, such as the abdomen or thighs, to underneath the skin of your hands. This technique is performed using small cannulas and leaves minimal to no scarring, making your hand veins, tendons, and bones much less visible.
Minimally invasive procedures: RADIESSE® (injectable filler), chemical peels, and laser resurfacing
If surgery through fat transfer is not a choice for you, perhaps the use of volumizing fillers such as RADIESSE® is an option. This product is injected into the back of the hands to restore volume and can last up to 18 months. This treatment can be repeated as desired without any downtime.
For even fuller and more complete results, Dr. Joseph N. Togba offers additional treatments to reverse the signs of aging on the hands. These are effective at rejuvenating the skin’s surface, minimizing the appearance of age spots and sun damage. Your options here are:
Chemical peels, consisting of special formulas to correct or diminish the sun damage and age spots on hands.
Laser resurfacing, which can reduce the signs of sun damage (age spots) and wrinkles.
Other aesthetic surgery procedures Dr. Joseph N. Togba performs
Like our hands, the skin of the face can also show signs of aging brought on by the natural aging process, sun damage, and the effects of gravity.
To remedy this, many of Dr. Joseph N. Togba’s patients opt for neck lift or facelift surgery to restore their youthful appearance by lifting and repositioning sagging facial and neck skin. In addition to facelift surgery, Dr. Joseph N. Togba offers minimally invasive procedures, including chemical peels, laser skin rejuvenation, injectable fillers, and BOTOX®, all of which treat the signs of aging.
