Main aesthetic complaints regarding the femur include local fat accumulations, round thickening of the femur, and sagging of the inner part of the femur. The treatment to be applied for each complaint will vary in shape and size.The first option in repair of any fat accumulation or asymmetries in the femur is liposuction. Liposuction is often performed under general anesthesia or sedation and lasts about 1-1,5 hours depending on the width of the operation area. This operation is to remove the fat tissues causing asymmetry and thickness by cannulas inserted from a few 2 mm holes. Generally no post-operation pain will occur, and patients get to the feet 2 hours after the operation and stay 1 day at the hospital.
Leg aesthetics is an aesthetic operation which is applied to the patients who have malformation on the lower legs and who have excessive fat or too much loose skin on the upper legs. The malformation on the lower legs are recovered by fat injection or calf prothesis. The excessive fat on the upper legs is liposuctioned. The loose skin due to weight loss could be treated by tightening the skin.
