Nowadays, leg beauty gain importance among the females and males. Lipoidosis in the upper leg region, the non-proportional distribution of fats, curvatures in lower leg region and insufficiencies in the muscle development or thickening related with weight gain are among the factors impairing the leg esthetics.
The most commonly factor impairing the leg esthetics is the excessive lipoidosis. Enlargement in hip, fullness in inner legs, thickenings in leg and wrists related with lipoidosis are seen. On the other hand, shape distortions may be developed in legs due to the congenital causes or traffic accidents or traumas.
The shape distortions occurred due to the lipoidosis in legs can be eliminated by means of the liposuction operation. With liposuction procedure, particularly fats located in the hips and in the inner legs are removed, thickened wrists are thinned, and calves can be made more esthetical.
If there is an angulation outward in lower legs and they seem more separate from each other, this can be corrected through the procedures done in inner legs. A volume can be formed in the inner arts of the legs through fat fillings or hyaluronic acid fillings. If the opening between legs is too wide that cannot be corrected via filling, implants are preferred. These are particularly implants which can persist lifelong, which are used to form a regular contour in inner legs which have biocompatibility.
Filling in legs can be made under the local anesthesia by narcotizing several regions in the clinical conditions. If the implant insertion is planned, it is necessary to perform the procedure under the spinal anesthesia or general anesthesia.
If you are using anticoagulant (blood-thinning) drugs, you should cease to use them seven to ten days before by consulting to your doctor. Some drugs and some vitamins have anticoagulant (blood-thinning) effects and bleedings may be increased during the recovery period. It is extremely important to inform your physician about the medications that you use, the nutritional supplements, slimming teas. If you have any allergy toward any substance or medications, please definitely inform your physician.
We suggest the patients consuming tobacco products to cease smoking at least three weeks before the surgery. No alcohol should be consumed for one week before the surgery.

How long do leg esthetics procedures last?
Filling application for the leg with hyaluronic acid lasts approximately thirty minutes. If correction is planned to be done with fat injection, this procedure may last for one to two hours.
Silicone implant surgeries last for one to two hours.
The patients may be discharged from the hospital in the same day following the silicone implant surgeries
Following the insertion of the silicone implant to the leg, the patients may have pain for the first several days. These pains may be treated with analgesics.
After the insertion of the silicone implant to the leg, people may return to the professional and social life in five to seven days.
Silicone implant are inserted via several-centimeter incision done from the convolution behind the knee. The clarity of this trace decreases with time.
