In this case, restrictions in the diet department won’t be of any help. Liposuction, on the other hand, can remove excess fat to reveal the leg’s thinness and grace permanently. If you’re considering liposuction to slim down your knees, get in touch with Dr Walid Balti to know more details about the procedure and hospitalization.
Who can benefit from knee liposuction ?
Heredity and water retention can contribute to excessively large knees, with undefined contours and a distorted appearance. Functional issues can also impair movement when walking or exercising. Overly large knees are all the more prominent and source of embarrassment when the legs are slender. Liposuction is a very versatile procedure used to treat almost any area of the body storing fat, not just the hips and thighs, it is also a perfect fit for the knees. Knee liposuction is a minimally invasive procedure only requiring a short incision to insert the cannula through the skin. Once the excess fat is removed, the skin retracts with the help of a compressive garment.
A short procedure offering immediate results
Knee liposuction can be performed as an outpatient procedure under general or local anesthesia when no other act is associated. Treated areas are determined according to the patient’s morphology. The lower part as well as the upper part of the knees can be treated. The operation is usually 30 to 60 minutes long. Patients can resume their usual activities almost right after being discharged, however, exercise will have to wait 4 weeks. Patients have to wear a compressive garment during a month in order to stabilize the result.
Improving the whole figure
In many cases, knee liposuction has to be considered as part of a global procedure aiming at reshaping the legs, the ankles or the thighs. Depending on the patient’s morphology, knee liposuction won’t necessarily be enough to get slender legs.
