Bowlegs Aesthetics

After dramatic weight loss or bariatric surgery that aims to improve patients’ health who are severely overweight, extra skin folds and fat pockets pose a problem to body contouring and self-esteem of patients

Aesthetically, proportional legs are among the most important elements of external beauty. The alignment of the upper and lower legs becomes obvious not only in the clothes that expose the leg area but also in the models that cover the legs with tights and trousers. Most people who experience this problem begin to suffer from loss of self-confidence in their social lives because the summer and beach clothes reveal their bowlegs. The difficulty of camouflaging the leg area and the bowleg problem which compromises the beauty of body is one of the most important aesthetic problems that keep people from having a comfortable life.

Although our legs are considered as limbs that only allow us to walk, they also complement the aesthetic body posture. The bowleg problem and the disproportion on legs is due to bone problems or incompatibility in fat distribution. There can be many reasons for the skewness of the bone in the legs. Today, the removal of skewness in the bones through a re-constructive method is very risky, and the patient experiences many problems during the recovery period. The reason for the unequal distribution of fat is generally genetic. This problem, which we can think of as the problem of regional fat deposition, may come to the fore with problems such as excessive fat deposition on the leg region due to weight gain or the weight gain at the upper or lower leg.

During the examination, the problem in the legs of the patient is detected. If there is a skew in your legs, the region to obtain the fat to be used for adjustment will be decided. If there is a problem in your legs, such as a thin lower leg, a thick upper leg, a reasonable leg size ratio is planned. Depending on the joint decision of the patient and the surgeon, general or local anesthesia will be decided.

The operation begins with the anesthesia technique decided, and it continues with taking the fat from the patient. Fixing injections are made for the bowlegs and the legs are shaped. If the problem is caused by non-proportional fat in the legs, the excess fat of the patient is transferred to the other area. The micro inputs are covered with small bands and the operation is completed.
