The Allure of Beautiful Legs
According to a recent article in the New York Times, smooth, toned legs are in. The article points to a photo of Angelina Jolie at the last Oscars as sparking this leggy obsession. In the now famous photo, Jolie confidently reveals her leg through the thigh-high slit of her gown.
Some women have turned to liposuction to achieve shapely legs. Often used in the thigh area, liposuction removes pockets of fat. The thighs are a common area for women to accumulate fat, even if they are active individuals who exercise and eat well.
The Times mentions several other ways women are pursuing beautiful legs:
- Strengthening and toning exercises, including ballet barre routines
- Spray tanning
- Foundation, shimmer products and other cosmetics
- Over-the-counter leg supplements
One of the things you can expect after liposuction is a few weeks of recovery, but a nice benefit of the procedure is permanency. The contouring results achieved with liposuction will be long-lasting because the fat cells are removed for good. If you cannot achieve smooth, healthy looking legs with exercise alone, liposuction may be right for your cosmetic goals.
