Legs are the third most visible part of a female body, following the face and hands.
On the other hand, the legs make up half of the body silhouette. Thus, they are of major importance in overall body aesthetics. Elegant leg contours significantly improve the whole body image.
Legs are detailed and complicated anatomic structures. Generally long, slim legs with proper curves are accepted to be beautiful. In an ideal leg, the buttock and thigh should be sharply distinguished, there shouldn’t be excess fat in outer and inner thighs, the medial knees should be flat and straight, and the lower leg curve should nicely end up with a slim ankle.
This architecture is sometimes deformed as a result of gaining weight, aging or sometimes genetic background. For a deformed leg, the general approach is “to remove the excess fat from over-prominent areas, and to fill up the deficient areas”. The excess fat is removed with liposuction or laser liposuction, and the deficient areas are filled with fat grafts or silicone implants.
As the needs of each patient are different from each other, it’s difficult to give general treatment rules and periods. Simply the patients can return to work within 3 to 7 days, but the final outcome needs at least 6 months to appear.
