Stylish boots are among the top fashion buys in the fall when temperatures in the US fall. This is the time women put away their strappy sandals and pull out their knee-high boots. In winter too, tall boots help combat slush and snow, besides amping up the style quotient. Popular models include the slouchy style, front lacing style and one with a buckle to adjust calf width. In addition to choosing the style that suits you, proper fitting at the calf is important to look good. Buying stylish boots but not getting the perfect fit spoils the look. The good news is that there is a smart way to get rid of the bulgy look and get slimmer legs to get the best fit – calf liposuction.
Liposuction is a widely requested body contouring procedure which helps remove excess fat deposits resistant to diet and exercise from various areas of the body. The most common areas of treatment include the abdomen, thighs and hips. However, laser liposuction allows effective fat reduction and reshaping of even smaller and more delicate areas. A report published last year revealed that many women are turning to calf-reduction surgery to fit into knee-high boots.
Liposuction helps tackle the ‘boot bulge’ by slimming the legs from the knee down. Of course, the treatment would work only for women with some excess fat, and not just muscle, in the area. The experience and expertise of the plastic surgeon also matters as micro-liposuction is necessary to remove very small amounts of fat from delicate areas such as the ankles and calves. Lipo using Smartlipo Triplex is the popular option.
Recovery from calf reduction surgery takes comparatively more time than for other areas, possibly up to 10 months. Many women recover after 4-5 months and would need to wear a snug compression knee-high stocking for at least two months after the procedure to help reduce swelling and improve skin adhesion.
You can maintain the results of the procedure with proper exercise and a low-fat, reduced-calorie diet. Fitness experts recommend running, swimming and cycling as good strategies to keep calves slim. Avoid activities that will create bigger bulkier muscle. For instance, resistance exercises may increase the size of the calf muscle and not slim down calves.
