With summer coming up, shorts and dresses will have your legs on display. If you’re feeling insecure about the look of your legs, here are some tips and in-office options for getting and maintaining beautiful legs.
One of the most effective yet overlooked ways to improve the overall appearance of legs in men and women of any age is exercise focusing on the lower extremities. Activities such as running, walking, cycling, lower extremity weight training, and even swimming utilizing a swift kick help improve the look of legs. Older patients should especially remember not to forget about exercise, as it works and has benefits far beyond just your legs. However, there are many surgical and non-surgical options available to improve the look of your legs.
Liposuction is a great option for those looking for a minimally invasive way to remove out-of-proportion areas on legs that do not respond to diet and exercise. Liposuction targets the parts of your body with excess fat, and at Dr. J. J. Wendel Plastic Surgery, we aim to restore your confidence in your body’s contours, slimming and reshaping your specific problem areas.
If you’re looking for a non-surgical option, sometimes less is more. Minimally invasive skin-tightening, including subdermal radiofrequency tightening and external, deep RF tightening like Morpheus8, can create great leg aesthetics. Morpheus8 is FDA-cleared to fractionally remodel and contour the face and body with minimal downtime.
Many patients desire more significant change. Short scar thigh lifts are a popular option to help with loose skin in the upper half of the thigh. Surgeons usually design the incision to hug the bikini line to help keep the scar as hidden as possible, so patients can wear a two-piece swimsuit after they have healed. The effect of this surgery fades as you get closer to the knee; however, this procedure provides the most significant improvement to the shape and contour of the upper thighs.
