What can I do about skinny legs?

A small incision is made at the back of the knee area in a crease in order to insert the implant. Careful planning is necessary and often patients undergo liposculpture at the same time. In the twenty years I have been performing this procedure, there have been very minimal complications and problems in these patients. Women who have had calf implantation are delighted to be able to wear a short skirt and men are much more comfortable about wearing shorts and at the beach.
