What is a hand lift?

With all the cosmetic procedures around, it is said that you are able to tell a person’s age by looking at their hands.

This is because hands are exposed to the sun and take a significant amount of strain over the years. This contributes to their aged appearance. Unless you wear gloves every day, ageing hands are inevitable. And let’s be real – who wants to wear gloves in the Australian summer?

This procedure is not uncommon, and Sculpted has plenty of experience in transforming the appearance of patients’ hands over the years.


Hand ageing: As we age, the hand’s fatty layer loses volume and the skin develops wrinkles and ‘age spots’. The loss of volume gives the hand skin a translucent and shrivelled appearance showing the underlying structures like bones, tendons and veins. This is hand ageing.

With hand lifts, your hands will look more youthful and not be the ‘tell-tale’ sign of your age.

Rejuvenating your hands

A hand lift, also called hand rejuvenation, is a procedure which aims to improve the appearance of the hand by reducing the wrinkling, prominent veins, and age spots. A variety of techniques can be used and the most suitable ones for you will be determined during your consultation.


Some of the methods used by Sculpted to rejuvenate your hands include using a combination of filler injectables, fat transfer, and hand lift surgery. These techniques will add volume and thus a more youthful aesthetic to your hands.

Why do people get hand lifts?

Contrary to what some may believe, the hand lift popularity is steadily rising. Fighting the ageing process has been a concern amongst people for many generations, and with the technology and procedures available today, almost every part of the body that may be a cause of concern for you can be treated.


Aside from the face and neck, the hands are the most visible parts of the body. Considering the fact that your hands are always on display and easily noticeable – it is no surprise that many people are interested in improving their appearance.


Common reasons patients seek hand lifts include:

  •      Prominent veins and tendons
  •      Wrinkled and thin skin
  •      Age spots
  •      Poor skin tone and colour


With treatments such as hand lifts available at Sculpted, you can have peace of mind that in lieu of your best efforts to keep a youthful looking face – your hands won’t be the culprit of giving away your age!
