About Hand Rejuvenation
To satisfy the growing demand for hand rejuvenation plastic surgery, Dr. Theodore T. Foley is proud to offer hand rejuvenation treatments at his Cosmetic & Plastic Surgery of Central Pennsylvania practice in Camp Hill, PA. Many of Dr. Foley’s patients who undergo a facelift, often want their hands to match their new facial look as well. Deflated, thin, or hyperpigmented hands are usually what gives away a person's age. However, board-certified Plastic Surgeon Dr. Foley uses a minimally invasive fat grafting procedure to restore volume and youthfulness in the hands. Other nonsurgical treatments are also available, such as laser skin resurfacing, chemical peels, and fillers. Dr. Foley strives to create results that produce stunning, smooth hands for every patient.
"Best plastic surgeon in the area! After exploring several options, I chose Dr. Foley because he was very qualified and knowledgeable. He was caring, professional and did a great job. He talked me through the procedure step by step. His staff was amazing and caring as well. He made sure I was pain free the entire time and put me at ease. I would highly recommend him to anyone seeking plastic surgery."- Anonymous / Office Visit / Jun 28, 2017
"I am so grateful to have the good fortune to end up in Dr. Foley's very good hands. I had undergone breast reconstruction with a different plastic surgeon 10 years ago and had a disappointing cosmetic outcome. I disliked feeling vain and insufficiently grateful for the help that I got, and was reluctant to seek another surgeon's help. I am so glad that I did. Dr. Foley is very kind and sensitive and collaborative, and so very skilled and invested in an optimal outcome for his patients."- C.H. / Healthgrades / Aug 21, 2018
"Dr.Foley is AMAZING! He is a very knowledgeable surgeon that is willing to go above and beyond to help his patients. He made me feel very comfortable during my consultation and took his time answering all my questions (I had many). He has a culturally diverse staff and these ladies are very sweet from the moment you check-in. Overall, this practice exceeded my expectations and I will not go to another plastic surgeon that is not Dr.Foley."- E.B. / Google / Aug 10, 2018
"Dr Foley explained to me that if a woman has an unbalanced appearance after breast cancer, she can have surgery to create proper symmetry.I had always been 'abundant.' This was the best opportunity to get reduction surgery as well as re-establish symmetry. Dr Foley is very sensitive and kind...with a touch of gentle humor.I still can't believe that I was vain enough to get this surgery. I'm glad I did. I feel so much better. Now, I'm 'living the dream.'"- E.A. / Healthgrades / Aug 18, 2018
"39, 2 Children, Breastfed Pre-pregnancy 32A, After Babes Saggy 30A - I chose Dr Foley because he does more breast cancer reconstruction and I felt that he would do a great job with my goal breasts. He was very professional. Always took his time with me, answered all my questions and his staff and the staff at the surgery center had great things to say about him and his work."- M. / RealSelf / May 23, 2018
Ideal candidates for hand rejuvenation are those who have hands with brown spots, unsightly surface veins, lost or low volume, wrinkles, dry skin, or rough texture. These symptoms can cause individuals to feel self-conscious and embarrassed. However, after receiving a surgical fat transfer or nonsurgical treatment, hands can be restored to a fuller, younger looking appearance. Typically, patients are over the age of 35 and are in overall good health. Those who are considering a fat transfer must also have enough fat tissue in other areas of their body. Fat cells are commonly harvested from the thighs.
What To Expect
Treatment will vary depending on your condition and cosmetic desires as there are both surgical and nonsurgical treatment available. The plastic surgeon will discuss each option in detail during your consultation. However, below is a brief summary of the surgical and nonsurgical options:
A surgical fat transfer is used to restore volume and fullness in deflated hands. During the procedure, fat cells are harvested from one area of the body, like the thigh, then a small incision in made in the back of the hand to transplant the harvested tissue. Once the fat tissue is in place, the plastic surgeon will massage the tissue into the hands to create a flattering contour. Although this is a surgical procedure, it is a natural way to restore volume in the hands with long-lasting results. However, a dermal filler may also be used to further enhance results.
Nonsurgical hand rejuvenation options include laser skin resurfacing, chemical peels, dermal fillers, and microdermabrasion. These treatments are commonly used for facial rejuvenation, but are becoming more popular as hand rejuvenation treatments as well. Each treatment addresses a different concern, but produce stunning results. However, outcomes are not as long-lasting as a surgical fat transfer.
It’s important when undergoing any cosmetic procedure to have realistic expectations. This procedure can improve the appearance of aged hands, but won’t prevent future aging. It’s also important to follow all aftercare instructions provided by the surgeon to ensure proper healing. There are numerous maintenance treatments that can extend your results and help you maintain a youthful hand appearance. Your surgeon can provide a regime that will help keep your skin moisturized and healthy.

Cost of Hand Rejuvenation
The cost of Hand Rejuvenation ranges on average from $1,875 to $2,500. If you are comparing prices between different plastic surgery practices, make sure you are comparing the fees which include all aspects of your upcoming surgery. These prices include the physician, anesthesia, and facility fees assuming that your surgery is being completed in a surgery center. If your surgery needs to be performed at the hospital, the fees will be ~$1500-$2000 more depending on the procedure, the surgical time, and whether or not you choose to stay overnight at the hospital. Also, your best choice for a cosmetic procedure of any kind is to choose a plastic surgeon, such as Dr. Theodore Foley, who is certified by the American Board of Plastic Surgery and who is local to you. Not only will you receive the best surgical care that way, but you will also receive the best postoperative care.
