A patient asked 2 years ago
I was wondering, I am mid 20’s with very skinny hands, this has bothered me all my life. I want a fat transfer, but don’t have much fat to harvest as I am very skinny and a part of the fat should be injected in my cheek. How much cc would be enough for a small improvement and are the green area’s in the photo the right place to inject it? Can you damage nerves? Other risks?

Treatment for Skinny Hands

 
Hi and thank you for your question! I highly recommend that you try filler injection for your hands. Based on the pictures, you should see good results with 1-2 cc of filler (Juvederm or Radiesse) per hand. I always do the hand injections with flexible cannula which has a blunt tip and significantly reduces the discomfort or risk of damaging tissues. I hope it helps and good luck!
