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 such as tights and trousers. Most people who experience this problem begin to suffer from loss of self-confidence in their social lives, while the summer clothes and beach costumes reveal the bowlegs they have. 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.
What Is the Bowleg Problem?
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.
Why Fat Transfer?
Legs should be perceived as a whole. When we look at the problem as the lower or upper limb, there should be no disproportion between the intervened area and the remaining leg region. Victoria Bogart Fat Transfer Technique is the most advanced fat transfer technique which can provide the harmony between the lower and upper leg and can obtain extremely positive and effective results on the soft tissue. Problems that can be solved by simply transferring fat without touching the leg bones allow the patient to recover immediately after the operation. Also, the advantages of Fixing Bowlegs Aesthetics with Fat Transfer are:
- With Victoria Bogart Fat Transfer technique closed lipocidal system, more fat amounts can be reached which can survive longer and can be stored more
- As the absorbed fat is enriched by the stem cell, it has the advantage of longer period of retaining and remaining for the transferred fat.
- This technique provides the most effective results in soft tissue adjustment and shaping
- Any excess fat or fat shortage in the lower or upper legs can be eliminated. Inter-regional fat transfer can be implemented.
- Fat is obtained only with micro level inputs and no laceration and fat will be injected only with micro level inputs, thereby the legs will have the shape requested.
Can you fix Bowleg only with 1 operation?
If your legs do not have any advanced deformity, it is possible to get aesthetic legs with only one operation. In the case of excessive deformity problems, the problem is solved with the 2nd operation. This technique, which is a simple application that removes the possible risks of classic bowleg fixing operations and can be repeated, is often beneficial in solving the problem at once.
How Is Bowleg Fixing Operation Examination Made?
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.
How Is Bowleg Fixing Operation Made?
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.
Post Bowleg Fixing Operation
The patient undergoes an extremely comfortable healing process after the Bowleg Fixing operation. The patient may go to his/her home immediately after this operation without any lacerations and without intervention of the bones. A corset will be indued on the region from where fat is obtained and a varsity sock will be indued on the region where the fat is transferred to. It is recommended to use these apparatuses for 2-3 weeks on average.
