Excess fat in areas like the knee are difficult to address with just diet and exercise. Reliable NYC plastic surgery practices offer the solution – knee liposuction with Smartlipo Triplex technology. This safe, minimally invasive procedure can provide you with shapely and attractive knees. A successful procedure provides greater definition to the knee cap, front structures of the knee, lower fibula area, and calves.
The treatment addresses fat on the inside of the knee, below the knee or over the top of the knee. Smartlipo Triplex liposuction uses laser energy to liquefy the unwanted fat tissues so that they can be suctioned out smoothly, while tightening the loose skin for an improved outcome. Those who have considerable fullness in the knee area are the right candidates for the procedure. A qualified surgeon can perform the procedure to have a positive toning effect on both the upper and lower legs, in addition to a slimmer and straighter leg contour.
Managing the recovery phase well is important to experience optimal results. Patients are usually advised bed rest and keeping the legs raised on a pillow for a few days, which will reduce swelling. Changing the bandages regularly and keeping the area dry is necessary to avoid risks of infection. Lightly massaging the lower legs a few times a day for a few minutes from ankle towards the knee will improve blood and lymphatic circulation in the area. Exercising the lower legs lightly every day is good, but you have to avoid bending your knees, running or too strenuous lower body exercise for at least three weeks. It is also important to take your medications as instructed by your surgeon.
Choosing the right liposuction surgeon in Manhattan is necessary for optimal results. In certain cases, knee liposuction along with thigh liposuction would be advised to improve the outcome. Successful treatment will result in toned, tighter skin around the knee area with barely visibly scarring, allowing you to confidently wear shorts and other leg-revealing clothes.
