Who Is the Ideal Candidate for Hand Surgery?
If you have suffered a mild-to-moderate hand injury or have a recurring repetitive motion injury, you could be a good candidate for hand surgery.
What do I Need to do Before Hand Surgery?
That will vary based upon the type of surgery you have, but some of the things you might be required to do are wear a hand brace and limit the use of your hands.
What Should I Expect on the Day of my Hand Surgery?
We will discuss this in greater detail with you during your consultation.
How Long Does it Take to Perform Hand Surgery?
Some hand surgeries can be performed in about an hour, while others could take as long as three hours.
What to Expect After Hand Surgery
You will need to avoid using the hand that was operated on as much as possible. As such, you could need to have someone help you with everyday tasks such as bathing or getting dressed. Some numbness and swelling might also be present at first, but these symptoms tend to gradually go away in the ensuing weeks.
Will I Have Scars After Getting Hand Surgery?
Visible scars are very possible after hand surgery; however, a scar revision is typically very successful when it comes to reducing or eliminating those scars.
When Will I See the Results?
Your hand must have time to heal before you can notice the results. This can often take several weeks.
How Long Will the Results of Hand Surgery Last?
This is difficult to determine and will depend on a number of things such as genetics and the type of activities you normally perform with your hands.
Additional Procedures to Enhance Your Hand Surgery Results
If your hands are also thin and wrinkled, you may want to consider a fat transfer and injection procedure to help fill them out.
