Everything you should be aware of about Knee Liposuction?


What is Knee Liposuction?


Knee liposuction, also called knees contouring or knee sculpting surgery, is a cosmetic procedure with the aim of obtaining improved looks through removal of excessive fats deposits on your knees.

The aim of knee liposuction is to provide a more defined and proportionate profile in the knees. Here are some important points to be aware of regarding knee liposuction:


Liposuction of the knee is, as a general condition, an outpatient procedure and performed by experienced plastic surgeons in India. Small incisions close to the knee area and use of a cannula, slim tube, are made by the surgeon for fat removal. This procedure can be performed with locally administered, sedative or general anaesthesia according to the extent of surgery and patient’s preferences.


The ideal candidates for liposuction of the knee are typically those with a steady weight and pockets of fat close to the knees that do not conform to diet or exercise. Realistic expectations and knowledge of the fact that liposuction is not a cure for weight loss or an antidote to skin laxity are important.

Ideal Candidate for Knee Liposuction

  • Stable weight
  • Good overall health
  • Realistic expectations
  • Specific aesthetic concerns
  • Commitment to post-operative care


Patients may experience swelling, bruising and pain in the treated area post knee liposuction. In order to reduce swelling and help heal the wound, Dr Anmol may be advised you to wear a compression garment. The time for recovery varies, but it usually takes less than a week or two to get on with ordinary activities and may take up to few weeks before you are completely recovered. But avoid any kind of strenuous activity or exercise.

Risks and complications:

Like any surgical procedure, there are some risks and potential complications associated with knee liposuction. This may include skin infection, bleeding, asymmetry, contour disorders, numbness, scarification and changes of sensation in the skin. Before you decide to go ahead with this operation, it is important that you discuss these risks with your surgeon.


The results of knee liposuction are likely to take a few months for you to see them in full, if swelling is relieved. If patients are well taken care following surgery and have an active lifestyle as advised by the surgeon, their results can last more than a few months. In order to maintain results, it should be emphasized that maintaining a stable body weight after treatment is of paramount importance.
