Liposuction For Your Inner KneePosted on November 15, 2022
Knee liposuction is a plastic surgery procedure that involves removal of fat deposits from the inner knee. The procedure is usually performed in combination with thigh or calf liposuction for achieving more enhanced contours. Knee liposuction procedure results are considered permanent as long as you maintain an ideal fitness level and weight.
Board certified plastic surgeon Dr. David Kim provides liposuction body contouring surgery for the knees to patients in Beverly Hills, Los Angeles, CA, and surrounding locations.
Ideal Candidates for Knee Liposuction
You could be a suitable candidate for knee liposuction cosmetic surgery if you have adequate skin elasticity and are at a healthy weight. The procedure is for people that lead a healthy lifestyle and are having trouble with stubborn fatty deposits in certain body areas.
You may not be a suitable candidate if you have weight fluctuations or are in the process of trying to lose weight. You should be within 30% of your ideal body weight before getting the procedure performed.
Knee liposuction does not get rid of saggy skin or cellulite completely. These types of skin concerns are generally common around the thigh area, but they can affect the knee as well. You should discuss other removal procedures with your plastic surgeon in this case.
Knee Fat Liposuction Advantages
You can experience significant difference in the overall appearance of your legs with the smallest amount of fat removal. The procedure can make your legs appear more symmetrical and sleeker. You may only require a single procedure for re-contouring the knees.
However, many patients choose to get liposuction performed for achieving proportionate results that improves their overall silhouette. Many patients choose to get a knee lift performed at the same time. This is a new type of innovative procedure that is gaining popularity among celebrities. The procedure removes “kninkles” or knee wrinkles and enhances collagen production for tightening loose skin on the knees.
These are a few benefits that can be attained from knee liposuction if it is performed along with outer and inner thigh liposuction:
- Sculpted and toned looking leg
- Increased comfort while walking or running
- Higher confidence while wearing clothes that show the knees
Inner Knee Liposuction Procedure
Liposuction is meant for eliminating fat from certain areas of the body. The surgeon will insert a thin, narrow metal tube into targeted areas around the knees. The tube will be used to suctioning fat from the body. UV light or lasers may also be used in the procedure. These techniques are useful in heating and melting the fat, allowing for easier fat removal from the body.
Knee liposuction is not meant for tightening the skin. Excess skin can be because of losing a lot of weight in a short span of time. You may require a lift procedure if you have excess sagging skin. You could maintain results from the procedure for a longer time by maintaining a healthy weight.
With that said, you should also perform regular exercises for enhancing the muscle tone. Cosmetic surgeon Dr. David Kim receives patients from Beverly Hills, Los Angeles, CA, and nearby areas for liposuction fat reduction and body contouring surgery for the knees.
