The accumulation of fat on the thighs is a frequent problem for women that is solved through liposuction. This procedure aims to reduce the fat accumulation and improve the contour of this area. In case of previous excessive weight loss, a skin resection might be needed.
This procedure can also be performed on the inner thigh.
The only scientifically proven method to reduce cellulite on thighs and buttocks is “Cellulaze”, a laser treatment that stimulates the formation of collagen and elastin, which liquefies fat and breaks up fibrous bands of tissue that pull down the skin and create the dimpled appearance of cellulite, causing irregularities in these regions.
This is an out-patient procedure that causes minimal postoperative discomfort.
The placement of implants in calves is done when a patient is unhappy about the volume of them. The volume of calves can vary depending on various factors like weight, physical activity, and genetic and racial factors.
The implants have the shape of calves and come in a short version (bodybuilding) and in a larger version.
