Every spring and summer, we have hundreds of women come in seeking improvement of their legs. The requests involve correcting cellulite, contouring fat, treating ugly veins and making the legs appear more fit and shapely.
With countless products, skin treatments, and surgical procedures available, Dr. Lesesne decided to apply his 15 years in treating leg structure and skin, to develop a system that is based upon anatomy and that truly works. The key is applying the right technique to structurally change your legs.
Leg Sculpting Treatment Options
We use a hypoallergenic hypertonis saline with the finest available needle to inject the fine veins. Usually they disappear immediately, without the risk of burns as seen with a laser. For larger veins, we use a microscope to make very tiny incisions to tie off the vessel, thus obliterating it and permanently removing it. Recovery time is immediate.
Many women notice unsightly cellulite in the back, side and front of the legs. Many come to us complaining that massage and external therapies look good for awhile but quickly fade. Our approach is to permanently and sructurally obliterate the pockets where fat becomes stored. Using fine tubes, we release the pockets and frequently remove the fibrous bands causing the deformity. We can actually feel the bands pop and release, resulting in noticeably smoother during the procedure. Cellulite removal can take 30 minutes to 1 hour, and can be done under local anesthesia. Recovery time is 2-3 days.
There are several ways of approaching fat contouring. We believe that removing the deep layer of fat first followed by the superficial layers has a much higher rate of success with less risk of contour irregularities. Dr. Lesesne uses liposuction techniques such as smart lipo, to contract the skin. He then uses ultra-small liposuction tubes to contour the skin. Recovery time is 2-3 days. Slight bruising and swelling can occur, but usually subsides within 5-7 days.
