What is the Recovery for Fat Transfer to the Hand?

When you awake following the surgery your hands will be resting on your chest

There is swelling after the operation and the best way to minimise this is by keeping your hands elevated above the level of your hand. The most practical way of doing this is to rest them on pillows in your lap when you are seated and to have them resting across your chest when you are lying down

Only mild pain is associated with the operation. The amount of fat required for the transfer is not a massive amount, so the degree of liposuction is mild. This translates into less trauma and pain

You are able to start driving after 2-3 days

You can resume work after 2-3 days

Patients are typically back in the gym at 2 weeks

How to Prepare for the Surgical Procedure?
