Many women are worried about the appearance of their legs. We constantly see images of female celebrities on TV, in magazines, and on social media. All seem to have beautifully toned, slim legs that look fantastic in a miniskirt. It’s no wonder, then, that so many women feel as if their legs aren’t up to scratch. Whether you have cankles or chunky thighs, you may be wondering if surgery to make your legs thinner could help.
How Can I Make My Legs Look More Toned?
Fat on the legs can be stubborn and resistant to diet and exercise. Many women who embark on a strict diet and exercise regime find that their legs refuse to improve. While they may become slimmer overall, there’s no way to reduce fat in any single body part. When it comes to the legs, it’s particularly difficult to target stubborn fat deposits.
There are some exercises you can do to target the legs. These will help to tone the muscles and give the legs more definition. Calf raises are one such exercise that can help to improve the tone of the muscles. Jumping rope is another exercise that can help to improve the muscle tone throughout the leg. However, even when muscles are well-defined, if a layer of fat remains over them, the legs will still look chunky.
Liposuction Surgery Improves the Appearance of the Legs
If you’ve failed to see results from your exercise and diet regime, you may be considering something more effective. Liposuction could be the answer you’ve been seeking. A surgeon can carry out lipo on both the lower and upper leg. He or she can remove excess fat from the thigh area, as well as the ankle and calf. This means the legs can look slimmer and more sculpted and have better muscle definition. If you’re considering surgery to make legs thinner, liposuction is the solution you’ve been looking for.
How Is Liposuction on The Legs Carried Out?
Here at Artistic Lipo and Plastic Surgery, we are experts in the field of liposuction. Dr. Su is leading the way with his pioneering active liposuction technique. As he is also a skilled artist, he produces a wonderfully sculpted and artistically beautiful result.
Dr. Su carries out lipo on the legs when the patient is under a local anesthetic. This means the patient is awake during the procedure but experiences no discomfort. As the patient is alert, however, she can move during the surgery and tense her muscles when required. This allows for a complete fat removal around the entire 360-degree curve of the leg.
Most cosmetic surgeons take a very conservative approach to leg liposuction. It’s difficult to remove fat evenly from around the curve of the leg and to achieve a smooth result. Dr. Su is an expert at this. He can achieve the complete removal of fat to allow optimal muscle definition. The outcome is a beautifully slim and toned leg that restores the patient’s confidence.
