What is Inner Knee Fat? 

Knee fat refers to the accumulation of unwanted fat specifically located on the inner knee area. Whilst excess fat deposits may be visible above, on top of, and around the knee, the only part of the knee that can be treated with liposuction is the inner knee – the small localised fat pocket located to the side of the knee on the inside portion of the leg.

What Causes Inner Knee Fat? 

Several factors can contribute to the accumulation of fat on the inner knees, including:

  • Genetics: Your genetic makeup plays a significant role in where your body prefers to store excess fat, including around the knees.
  • Aging: As you age, your body’s fat distribution can change, leading to more fat deposits in certain areas, like the knees.
  • Diet and Lifestyle: An unbalanced diet and lack of physical activity can contribute to overall fat accumulation, including inner knee fat.

How to Get Rid of Inner Knee Fat

Reducing the appearance of fat located on the inner knees can be challenging, even with a healthy lifestyle that includes a balanced diet and regular exercise. While these habits are crucial for managing overall body fat, they may not specifically reduce the fat deposits on the inside area of the knees. This is where Vaser liposuction may offer a surgical treatment option for suitable candidates.

About Inner Knee Liposuction

Knee liposuction is a cosmetic procedure used to reduce the amount of stubborn fat from the inner knees using Vaser liposuction. This surgical technique utilises ultrasound technology to break down the unwanted fat in the treatment area before these excess fat cells are removed via suction. If you find you’re concerned with unwanted fat deposits in other areas of your legs, suitable candidates can discuss their treatment options during the consultation with the doctor. These additional areas may include thigh liposuction and calf/ankle liposuction.

Knee Vaser Liposuction FAQs

Can diet and exercise reduce knee fat?
While a balanced diet and regular exercise are essential for overall health and can help in reducing body fat, targeting inner knee fat through these means alone can be challenging. The knee area is particularly stubborn and may not respond as effectively to general weight loss methods.
Is liposuction safe for removing knee fat?
Liposuction for inner knee fat, when carried out by an experienced doctor, is generally considered safe. As with any surgical procedure, there are inherent risks, but advancements in liposuction techniques, particularly Vaser liposuction, have improved safety and reduced recovery times.
Who is a good candidate for inner knee liposuction?
Good candidates for inner knee liposuction are generally those in overall good health, who have stubborn fat deposits on the inside portion of their knees that has not responded to diet and exercise. Individuals need to have realistic expectations and discuss their specific situation and goals with a healthcare professional to assess their suitability for the procedure.
What are non-surgical options for addressing knee fat?
For those seeking non-surgical alternatives, treatments like CoolSculpting can be considered. These procedures offer a no-surgery option to reduce fat cells in targeted areas, including the knees. It is important to note the results may not be as immediate or noticeable compared to surgical methods like liposuction.
