You can maintain a fit and well-toned body with regular diet and exercise regimen. However, some trouble spots in the body may still not respond well in terms of fat reduction. One of the problem areas where it is hard to reduce fat deposits is your knees.
If you have nicely contoured thighs and calves but fatty knees, it could detract from your otherwise shapely appearance of the legs. However, you may choose knee liposuction cosmetic surgery to ensure that your knees look as good as the rest of the lower body.

Advantages of Knee Fat Liposuction
In many cases, the removal of even a small amount of fat tissue can make a major difference to the overall leg aesthetics, helping them to appear sleek and symmetrical.
While knee liposuction may be all that is required to re-contour the knees, patients often choose to receive inner thigh liposuction plastic surgery at the same time to achieve proportionate and attractive results that enhance their overall lower body silhouette.
Additionally, some patients may like to have a knee lift at the same time. This is a relatively new procedure, which is becoming popular among celebrities. It can eliminate ‘kninkles’ or knee wrinkles, promote fresh collagen fiber production, and tighten loose skin tissue above the knee.
You can expect to have the following key benefits after undergoing knee liposuction surgery, particularly when it is undertaken in combination with outer or inner thigh liposuction:
- More toned-looking and youthful leg appearance
- Greater comfort and ease when running or walking
- More confidence to wearing clothing that reveals the knees
If your body weight is within a relatively normal range for your height, but you suffer from excessive fat deposits around the knees (especially in the inner knee), while having a fairly good skin tone and elasticity, then you could a good candidate for knee liposuction.
Knee liposuction is a cosmetic procedure that is designed to eliminate excess fat from targeted areas of your knees. In this surgery, a small, thin cannula will be inserted into specific locations around your knees through small incisions.
The surgeon will then gently suction out of the excess fat from the knees. The procedure may sometimes include the use of laser beams or ultrasound waves, which are designed to melt the fat through controlled heat, making it easier to eliminate it from the knees.
Knee liposuction is not meant to tighten loose or excess skin in and around the knees. If you suffer from excess skin in the knees, you might need a knee lift surgery.
If you maintain healthy weight, it will ensure the results last longer. Regular exercise will build muscle tone and enhance the final outcome.
The knee liposuction is carried out on an outpatient basis. It usually takes anywhere from half an hour to 45 minutes to perform, and can be done with regional or local anesthesia.
Patients are usually able to resume normal activity within two to three weeks following the knee fat reduction surgery. They can return to their regular exercise routine within four to six weeks.
