Liposuction of the Knees
A small pad of fatty tissue is often present on the inside of the knee, slightly above where the bone of the knee joint protrudes.
Liposuction can remove this bulge, so that the knee is now defined by the bone, rather than the fatty pad above it.
It is common to perform knee liposuction at the same time as outer and inner thigh liposculpture for a well balanced procedure. This can help make the leg look slimmer and straighter.
The amount of fatty tissue to be removed from the knee varies considerably, but the aesthetic aim is to make the leg appear finer and more symmetrical. The results of removing even a small amount can be dramatic.
