Problems With Fat Ankles Diet v Ankle Liposuction Whats Best?

Aug 25, 2008
Do you wish you didn't have fat legs or fat ankles? Well chances are you are not alone, it seems from various surveys carried out that while men find women's ankles and legs very sexy most women face a constant worry about not looking good in the ankle and leg area.

But their very nature a womans legs are often one of the most seen parts of their bodies it can really be no suprise that they are also the area of the body most women do their best to hide when in their eyes they are 'not perfect'.So much so that women who believe they have fat legs will often avoid wearing short dresses and skirts in an attempt to hide them

It might suprise you to know that many women who have fat legs or ankles can do nothing about it as it has been shown in various surveys that some women are just naturallymore predisposed genetically to fat legs or fat ankles. But still women will use just about any form of diet and exercise to try and eliminate their problem.

However, the fat located in ankles and fats are pretty resistant to these activities. As a result, ankle liposuction is among the most popular plastic surgery procedures taken up amongst women.

Ever considered Liposuction? It is a common procedure carried out by cosmetic surgeons. How it works is few small incisions are made around the ankles and legs and the fat is removed this way by a vacum pump. Afterwards the period of recovery can be around 28 -42 days whilst the surgery is healing. This procedure is not cheap and you would expect to pay anything from $4000 and up and should be seen as a last ditch attempt to get rid of fat when all else has failed.

Of course with a surgical procedure the risks cannot be ignored which is made more sigificant by the fact that the legs and ankles do not hold deep pockets of fat and the fat that accumulates here tends to be rather more superficial. The consequence of this is it tends to be harder to remove than fat from other locations of the body.

Although losing fat form the ankles and legs may not be as effective as in some other areas of the body it should still not be discounted. Here are a number of ways you might like to try before trying the more radical comsetic surgery options?

-Reduce the amount of sugar you have in your diet this also includes things like sugar replacements and foods that contain either sugar or their replacements such as soda's and candies.

-Keep your legs warm in winter by wearing thick tights or stockings or socks and even extreme climates leg warmers. This can be effective when you live in areas where cold winters and more common and reduces your chances of getting fat legs or ankles.

-Drink 8-10 glasses of water daily.If you are a coffee drinker increase that further to around 12-14 especially if you drink quite a lot of coffee.Water flushes out the toxins in your body which helps prevent water retention and encourages fat loss.

-Eat a diet richer in protein than you do right now,whilst you should continue to eat a balanced diet try increasing your intake of protein foods as this helps the body retain less fat.

- One of my favorite but simple exercises which you can do even if you lack much mobility is to put your foot out and rotate for ten revolutions in either direction then repeat with the other foot.

-Take a look at another article I have written recently about having sexier legs, you can read it here http://www.dreambodynow.com/want-sexier-legs-follow-these-tips-to-succeed/ you will find some of these tips are also very effective.

one last tip ... It could be your swollen ankles are due to fluid being retained around the ankle. If you suspect this may be the case (ie it feels sort of squashy aroud the joint) then consult your Doctor who will probably supply you with a diuretic which will make you go to the bathroom more and should help remove any excess fluid from the body.

I am sure you find this helps but I urge you to start of program of weight loss if you are at all concerned about your weight or carrying excess fat even if you have got fat ankles and legs.
