Is Their A Magical Solution To Having Fat Ankles and Fat Legs?

Aug 25, 2008
Are you suffering with fat ankles or maybe fat legs? When asked many men said they thought of a womans ankles and legs as one of the most erotic parts of her body. You might have heard of men saying they are a leg man or breast man or whatever. But to many women who are not blessed with super model legs they are a constant source of insecurity.

Considering that legs are often the part of their bodies that are exposed the most, many women struggle with the appearance of fat legs and those with very fat legs feel uncomfortable exposing them. Usually they will choose to wear pants rather than dresses or skirts tpo cover them up if they believe them to be unsightly.

It is a fact that many women who have fat legs or ankles are in fact genetically predisposed this way and there is probably very little they can have do to prevent it. But inspite of this they try to reduce fat by exercise and dieting which in some circumstances can be pretty ineffectual.

Unfortunately fat stored in the ankles and and legs is pretty hard to move by diet and exercise alone. This has led to a huge increase in the number of women who look to plastic surgeons for ankle liposuction and leg liposuction for the answer.

So what about Liposuction? It is now a popular procedure according to plastic surgeons and although not cheap costing around $4000 it can be very effective when all other methods have failed. What it involves is the surgeon making a few small incisions around the fatty area of the legs or ankles and removal by the plastic surgeon taking around 6 weeks to recover afterwards.

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.

Whilst weight loss from the ankles and legs may be much harder than some other areas of the body I encourage you to try these methods first at least. If you find they have not worked and you can afford it and you accept the risks then and only then consider plastic surgery.

-Cut down on your sugar intake this also applies to the use of sugar substitutes such as Sweet and Low and those sweetners used in diet soda's such as Aspartame.

-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.

-Boost the amount of water you drink. Aim to consume 8-10 glasses of cold or iced water a day.If you drink coffee aim to replace each cup of coffee with an additional glass of water.Water helps detox the body which improves fat breakdown in all areas.

-Add more protein to your diet whilst maintaining still a balanced diet with a reduced fat intake. Although most people don't really understand why it has been shown that an increase in the protein in your diet improves your ability to burn 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.

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.

Hope this helps in some way for you, remember though, trying to lose weight in one area is not as easy as it sounds, perhaps an overall weight loss plan might be your best bet.
