Bowed legs usually occur in people who are vitamin and nutrition deficient. For these reasons in today’s world true bowed legs are extremely rare. Commonly, what is perceived as a bowed leg is a genetic condition where the calf muscle is not nearly as proportionately prominent on the inside as it is on the outer portion of the lower leg. By restructuring or rebuilding volume in the inner portion of the calf and ankle the bowed leg appearance can easily be treated forever.
Are you someone who was born with bowed legs and you live in New York? Have you been looking to get your bowed legs corrected for some time but weren’t sure if there was a qualified physician who was capable of performing this type of procedure? If you answered yes, you’ll be happy to know that Dr. Leonard Grossman has the highest qualifications and skills to perform this remarkable procedure and is available to consult with you now.
Natural bowed leg correction is a procedure which was invented by Dr. Leonard Grossman in 1995. Dr. Leonard Grossman is a plastic surgeon who started to specialize in fat grafting techniques since 1993 and has achieved revolutionary and unprecedented results with his ever- evolving techniques and experience alike. Bowed leg correction consists of two parts. These include:
In the initial part of the procedure, which is similar to a liposuction procedure, fat is removed by means of a low vacuum liposuction device from the areas where fat is not wanted.
The second part of the procedure involves processing and cleaning the fat making sure that the patient’s own stem cells are preserved and are alive as well as stabilizing the obtained harvest and then transferring it by means of specialized blunt tip cannula into the area where this mixture of fat and stem cells is wanted. In this case it is the calf area as well as the ankle. In this procedure the patients can obtain any shape to their calves and ankle they desire while having no visible scarring.
Who would be considered as a candidate for natural bowed leg correction?
Ideal candidates are people who desire to improve the shape and proportions of their lower legs. In order to be a candidate for this procedure the patient must not only have “bowed” legs, but also have sufficient amount of fat which can be used for fat grafting. Not all fat tissues are alike, therefore an evaluation by a plastic surgeon is absolutely necessary before undergoing or deciding to undergo such a procedure.
How long does a natural bowed leg correction procedure take?
What once was a very complicated and long procedure has now become one that can be performed by Dr. Grossman in just under one and a half hours. As soon as the patients are finished with surgery, they are usually wide awake, having a cup of tea within just five minutes. Patients normally leave the clinic feeling great after this surgery just 20 to 30 minutes following the completion of it. The patients are able to walk immediately on their own even though they will feel temporary stiffness in the calf muscles.
What are the pros to getting all-natural bowed leg correction?
The most common plus to natural bowed leg correction is that there are no visible incisions made on the leg, there is no metal hardware such as plates or screws placed into the leg and no bones are required to be broken. Natural bowed leg correction allows the patients to change the shape of their leg in any portion of the leg they desire. The same cannot always be achieved by any orthopedic surgeon. Instead of visible scars, there are just tiny needle holes where the cannula is placed. Patients require NO general anesthesia. The patients recover from this procedure much, much quicker than with orthopedic surgery and can walk immediately rather than having to wait for months before ambulation. Our patients can resume all forms of exercise in just 10 days and continue to build bigger and stronger leg muscles if so desired.
What are the disadvantages of natural bowed leg correction?
There is only one disadvantage: the patient must have a sufficient amount of obtainable and useful fat which can be used for fat grafting. If you are wondering what makes Dr. Grossman different from other doctors in New York who are attempting to perform this procedure, you should know that Dr. Grossman possesses a great deal of experience in performing natural bowed leg correction since 1995, when he invented the procedure. Dr. Grossman has reached the point where his patients retain nearly 100% of the transferred fat, and we have never had a patient who has been dissatisfied with such a procedure as long as their expectations are within reason.
