Effective Methods of Leg Correction
Most women dream of long legs with beautiful shapes. In addition to good genetics, exercise, healthy eating, and weight control are important to achieve the desired result. But if for some reason it is not possible to change the appearance of the legs with the help of conventional methods, you can do plastic surgery on the legs. Although it is not possible to elongate legs with plastic surgery procedures, accumulated fat in unwanted areas can be removed with procedures such as liposuction, making the legs appear longer. You can correct thin and crooked legs with the help of a fat transfer, injections, or implants.
Correction of the shape of the legs
Accumulation of fat in the thigh area, the inner surface of the knees, and ankles can be corrected. It can be removed as well as reshaped by liposuction, while fat injections are best done in cases where the upper part of the legs is too thin.
Thin and curved legs cause difficulties even in everyday clothing selection. Too thin legs can be given volume. With the correct installation, thanks to the implants, you can reduce the distance between the legs and make the legs visually smoother.
With strong curvature, it is sometimes impossible to correct the appearance with the help of leg plastic surgery, the curvature can be noticeable even in underpants. In some cases, the deformation is only in the groove under the inner part of the knees, and in other areas the bone structure is straight. In this case, the hips may be too narrow, or there may be other problems, such as genu valgum (X-shaped deformity) or genu varum (O-shaped deformity). The plastic surgeon selects the most optimal solutions and methods depending on the deformity after consultation.
Injectable fillers and leg plastic surgery
Fillers containing hyaluronic acid are most often used. The effect lasts an average of 2 years. The biggest advantage of these fillers is the absence of surgical intervention, which means no recovery period. Fillers give immediate results. At the same time, with excessive use, fillers can cause allergic reactions, and they also have a major drawback – the impermanence of the result.
Leg plastic surgery using lipofilling
Adipose tissue, which is usually collected in the abdominal area, is specially processed and introduced into the areas on the legs that require correction. The procedure is performed in a hospital under local anesthesia and sedatives. From 60 to 70% of the injected fat remains forever. A second session is rarely needed. This method is most often used when it is necessary to eliminate notches on the inside of the legs below the knees.
Implants for leg correction
The desired volume and fullness of the calves are achieved with the help of silicone implants similar to breast implants. They are installed permanently. Implants can be placed on the inner thighs to reduce the gap between the legs. The structures of shin implants can be symmetrical or asymmetrical, and come in different sizes and volumes. The implant is selected according to the length and thickness of the patient’s legs. Symmetrical implants are suitable for women and give aesthetic volume to the calves, while asymmetrical implants are more suitable for men, creating a more muscular appearance.
This type of leg plastic surgery provides the most long-term result. Installation of implants in the shins is performed under general anesthesia or local anesthesia with the use of sedatives. On average, the operation takes an hour. The implants are placed through a small incision hidden in the skin fold behind the knee, under the back of the fascia of the leg muscle, and on the muscle. The frequency of complications after such an operation is quite low if it is performed by an experienced surgeon. After the operation, a special compression bandage is applied, and the patient is discharged from the hospital on the same day. The rehabilitation period lasts about a week. Correctly selected and installed calf implants give rounded shapes and make legs more aesthetically attractive.
