Knee Liposuction

Do you dislike your knees? Most women describe attractive legs as a gradual tapering from the thighs to the ankles. While a slight fullness at the knees is normal, many women have prominent fatty bulges on the inner knees, even without excess fat in the thighs. This is both genetically determined and age related. If you’re seeking shapelier legs, liposuction of the inner knees can eliminate the avocado-shaped “bump” in that area to create a more pleasing appearance.

Men are embracing plastic surgery to regain a more youthful figure and to eliminate some of the facial signs of aging via procedures such as rhinoplasty, facial rejuvenation and liposuction. As this infographic (courtesy of Male Plastic Surgery New York) shows, over 1 million cosmetic procedures were performed on men in 2012, an increase of 106% since data was collected in 1997. Why Men Choose Plastic Surgery One of the primary reasons men report that they chose to have cosmetic enhancements is a perceived need to appear as young and virile as … Continue reading
