Traumatic injuries to the hand or arm, functional limitations of the hand due to pain or weakness, or degenerative diseases of the upper extremity may require treatment involving hand surgery. Each condition of the hand will require a customized procedure that may combine both surgical and non-surgical techniques.
In some cases, the patient may only require cosmetic surgery for hand rejuvenation. Dr. Asaf Yalif is a leading surgeon with triple board certification in hand surgery, plastic surgery and orthopedics. Dr. Yalif receives patients from Atlanta, Roswell, Woodstock, and surrounding communities.

As an experienced plastic surgeon, Dr. Yalif can repair the injury effectively to restore normal function as quickly and seamlessly as possible. Two major types of workplace and sports injuries that Dr. Yalif will treat include the following:
- Repetitive motion injuries or repetitive strain/stress injuries
- Breaks and fractures of the wrist, arm, hand, fingers, and thumb
Dr. Yalif provides surgical solutions to address traumatic injuries to the hand, arm and fingers. He will not only repair the immediate condition, but also treat the long-term consequences of these injuries.

Traumatic accidents at work, home or on the road can have severe physical and emotional consequences. In many cases, even when the hands or fingers are surgical restored in terms of functionality following a traumatic injury, excessively visible scarring may occur.
Dr. Yalif can perform advanced hand reconstruction surgery with minimal scarring, and also provide scar reduction treatments to improve the hand, arm, and finger aesthetics.
Loss of skin elasticity and volume in the hands can make them appear wrinkled, with greater visibility of bones, veins, and tendons. Hands are one of the first places to reveal aging signs, including hyper pigmentation, prominent veins and tendons, bony or wrinkled hands, and uneven skin color, tone, and texture.
Hand rejuvenation can be achieved through both surgical and non-surgical techniques. Dr. Yalif performs advanced procedures to revitalize and restore the youthful appearance of hands, wrists, and forearms. In addition to surgery, he may recommend non-surgical procedures such as dermal fillers, fat grafting, skin resurfacing, chemical peels, laser resurfacing, and sclerotherapy.
