Tight and toned legs can be a defining feature but as we age the legs can be a key hotspot for accumulation of fat. For women especially due to evolution, the hips, thighs and calves are usually where most of our fat cells are carried. When weight is gained, the large number of fat cells in this area results in a disproportionate gain in girth relative to other parts of the body. Even at a healthy body fat percentage, some people just carry a large number of fat cells on their legs which can result in stubborn pockets of fat resistant to diet and exercise.
Larger legs can limit your wardrobe options and make you feel self-conscious. It can make it difficult to find clothes that fit and are attractive and flattering. Getting and keeping toned legs becomes more difficult as we age because our metabolism starts to slow down and lifestyles become less active. At botonics, we have a proven technology to help restore your legs to their youthful tone. Vaser Lipo is ideal for permanent fat removal from the legs because it gentle. Unlike conventional liposuction, Vaser Lipo causes just minimal damage to connective tissues and blood vessels. This means that your skin has the best possible chance to snap back once the underlying fat has been removed. The minimal damage to blood vessels means you have much less bruising, and so together this means your recovery is significantly faster than conventional liposuction. Fat removal from the legs can be done at the same time as any other subcutaneous fat that concerns you (e.g. abdomen, back, neck/jawline, backs of arms).
For smaller pockets of fat, we also have fat dissolving injections. The disadvantage of this option is that the results are not immediate and several treatments are required. However, it is cheaper and there is no surgery so no risk of infection and less down time.
