There are many factors that can affect the appearance of the knees, and some people find themselves with shape challenged knees. Shape challenged knees may have excess weight, sagging skin or a lack of muscle tone, and there are various causes for this. Both men and women can experience shape challenged knees, and it often has an impact on their confidence and happiness within their bodies. Although shape challenged knees are completely natural, they often lead to individuals trying to keep their legs covered to hide knees they are self-conscious about.

Shaped challenged knees can be a result of excess fat building up around the kneecap and sagging, causing loose skin on the knees. When the body does store fat on the knees, it is usually very difficult to lose through dieting and exercise. This is because fat pockets on the knees are often deep, stubborn cells that are the last to go when it comes to weight loss. Sometimes, poorly sgaped knees can be due to the underlying bones, such as knock knees ( genu valgum), in such cases physiotherapy may help.

Shape Challenged Knees Treatment At Hans Place Practice

Treating shape challenged knees can be simple with the right kind of technology. At Hans Place Practice, we specialise in cosmetic treatments to reshape the body and remove excess fat.

VASER Liposuction

VASER Liposuction is a non-invasive treatment offering fat removing results similar to that of traditional liposuction surgery. It uses ultrasound technologies to selectively remove fat cells from around the knee and reshape the area.

A small probe applies ultrasound energy to the fat tissue and causes it to emulsify into a liquified fat. An aspiration process is then used to remove this fat from the body and shape challenged knees are reshaped using specialist cannulas.

If extra skin tightening is required on top of fat removal, Renuvion can be used alongside VASER Liposuction. Renuvion is an innovative cosmetic treatment that encourages collagen production to leave skin tight and toned. Collagen is boosted through the use of radiofrequency energy which is applied to the knees.
