Achieve Shapely, Attractive Legs with Thigh and Knee Liposuction

Knee liposuction in NYC helps address fatty knees and helps women achieve shapely attractive legs. Excess fat buildup in the knees can make even slim legs to appear heavier than they actually are. Heredity or the aging process could be the reason for the fat deposits around the knees. These stubborn fat deposits are extremely difficult to get rid of even with strenuous workout and rigorous diets. Knee liposuction surgery removes excess fat behind or on either side of the knees. The procedure is more popular among women as they want their knees to look shapely and attractive while wearing miniskirts and shorts.

How the Procedure Works?

Liposuction gives more definition to the knee cap, front structures of the knee, lower fibula area and calves, thereby resulting in smoother, slimmer and shapely legs.

Plastic surgeons in New York City perform knee liposuction using the advanced laser-assisted minimally-invasive Smartlipo Triplex device. A couple of small incisions are made just behind the knee to insert the small laser-enabled cannula. This cannula comes with three laser wavelengths and delivers laser energy directly to the fat cells to liquefy them. This liquefied fat is then suctioned out. The device allows the surgeon to contour the area and provide a beautiful, sculpted appearance. Laser liposuction is performed on an outpatient basis under local anesthesia. For the best outcomes, knee liposuction is performed along with the inner and outer thigh liposuction.

Recovery from Knee Liposuction Surgery

You will be advised to wear a compression garment and keep the leg raised on a pillow for a few days after the surgery. This will help compress the skin to fit the new shape and reduce swelling. During the initial days, you should use a cane to move around to ease the impact on the knees. Changing the bandages regularly and keeping the area dry will minimize risks of infection. Massaging your lower legs from the ankle towards the knee a few times a day, for a few minutes, may be recommended to improve blood and lymphatic circulation in the area. Your surgeon may also advice you to perform light exercises like calf raises and heels lift every day. You should avoid bending the knees, running, and strenuous lower body exercise till you recover fully. Importantly, take the medications prescribed by your surgeon. Following your surgeon’s instructions will prevent complications and promote smooth recovery.
