Leg Liposuction in Charleston, SC

How often do we feel jealous when we hear someone compliment someone else’s fantastic legs? The legs are a problem area for so many of us and we can feel helpless at improving their appearance. Consider liposuction as a minimally invasive procedure to improve the shapeliness of your legs. If you reside in Mt. Pleasant, Charleston, Summerville, or any of the surrounding South Carolina communities, Heidi Williams, M.D., is a board-certified, ASPS Plastic Surgeon, who specializes in addressing problem areas such as the legs, and in helping her patients achieve their body contouring goals.

Why are Legs a Problem Area?

There are many reasons someone can feel insecure about their legs, whether due to excess weight, the length of the legs, or cellulite buildup, the legs can be a source of insecurity for many of us. Even more frustrating is when no amount of exercise seems to help improve their condition. Stubborn pockets of excess fat or swollen joints seem resistant to toning and cardio workouts.

If cellulite is a source of insecurity, there are many options marketed as the “cure.” From dry brushing, scrubbing, caffeinated products, and specialized creams, it can make us feel as though cellulite is completely treatable at home. However, to treat cellulite, we must consider how cellulite is formed. Cellulite is formed when fibrous bands are striated across an area with some excess fat. The fat cells protrude between the fibrous bands and cause a lumpy or “puckered appearance,” visible even above the skin.

Whether it’s excess fat or cellulite, the legs are a source of insecurity. When we feel poorly about our legs, we may change the way we dress, pose, or even feel about ourselves.
