Let $X,Y$ be two Hilbert spaces, let E be a subset of $X,$ and let $G\colon E \to Y$ be a Lipschitz mapping. A famous theorem of Kirszbraun’s states that there exists $\tilde {G} : X \to Y$ with $\tilde {G}=G$ on E and $ \operatorname {\mathrm {Lip}}(\tilde {G})= \operatorname {\mathrm {Lip}}(G).$ In this note we show that in fact the function $\tilde {G}:=\nabla _Y( \operatorname {\mathrm {conv}} (g))( \cdot , 0)$, where
$$\begin{align*}g(x,y) = \inf_{z \in E} \Big\lbrace \langle G(z), y \rangle + \frac{\operatorname{\mathrm{Lip}}(G)}{2} \|(x-z,y)\|^2 \Big\rbrace + \frac{\operatorname{\mathrm{Lip}}(G)}{2}\|(x,y)\|^2, \end{align*}$$ defines such an extension. We apply this formula to get an extension result for strongly biLipschitz mappings. Related to the latter, we also consider extensions of
$C^{1,1}$ strongly convex functions.
