A beautiful knee greatly contributes to the balance of a leg, since it is the balance point in the middle of the leg. This is why a big knee weighs down the whole figure, far beyond the leg.
Slimming down around the knee proves to be very difficult in practice, hence the interest in a simple solution using aesthetic medicine. If you're wondering how to slim down your knees without liposuction, find out which method can destroy at least 25% of fat deposits in a single session.
The causes: why do your knees get fat?
The knee joint, in both humans and primates, is surrounded by tissue rich in fat cells. This is why a practitioner performing lipofilling (injection of fat) will always be certain to find fat behind the knee, even in a skinny individual.
This is quite logical, because the transition to the bipedal stage during evolution has put a lot of weight on the hind limbs which have become lower limbs. The knee is subject to multiple stresses, as it moves along 3 axes, with few muscles to hold it. In the absence of sufficient fatty tissue, the skin layer would be subjected to too much stress and would be damaged. Adipocytes in the geniculate region are even more abundant in women, whose gynoid model favours the distribution of fat over the lower part of the body, such as the buttocks, hips and legs.
Age, a sedentary lifestyle, hormones or genetics contribute to the accumulation of fat in the fat bulges, which gradually leads to a knee that is thickened and too fat. A fat knee breaks the harmonious balance of the legs and leads to hang-ups, sometimes even making it difficult to get dressed or to go out with bare knees.
The solutions: how to slim down knees without effort?
Weight loss exercises rarely work against fat around the knees: lunge, squat or jump squat then give disappointing results.
It is sometimes possible to reshape the muscles around the knee a little, but slimming down knees faces two problems : Slimming down is not a mechanism favoured by the body, which prefers to burn its short-term supplies (glycogen) rather than its long-term stocks (lipids). Glycogenolysis is always a priority over lipolysis: we will therefore burn calories but not necessarily fat. -Slimming down in a specific area is then very complicated to achieve, because the body does not necessarily burn calories in the area under stress, especially since other organs such as the heart require priority energy.
To respond to this double challenge and lose weight around the knees, the Clinique des Champs Elysées offers different strategies to slim down the knee without surgery, and to reshape the legs without effort.
Fat or cellulite are permanently eliminated, to reshape the contours of a thinner, firmer knee.
Cryolipolysis or slimming down the knees in one session using cold temperatures.
Cryolipolysis is a high-performance slimming technique, scientifically proven and validated in the USA (FDA) and Europe (EC). It uses a pronounced cold to destroy between 1/3 and 1/4 of the knee fat in a single session. The latest generation of Coolsculpting ® device combines an applicator with contoured shapes for the geniculate area, with vacuum suction if necessary in order to tackle the fat. One or two sessions spaced 8 weeks apart allow you to regain a thin and slender knee. On the other hand, sagging skin is not treated by cryolipolysis.
Thermo-lipolysis or slimming down knees and firming them up with heat.
There are two goals, to treat excess fat and to destroy it by heat, while remodeling the dermis, in order to firm the skin and lift it. Different solutions exist to treat knee fat or cellulite: Pulsed electromagnetic fields, bipolar radiofrequency, high energy focused ultrasound HIFU, microwaves...).
This body-contouring method without surgery makes it possible to slim the knee, reshape its contours, and remove any orange peel skin, in order to make the leg slimmer and more dynamic looking.
