Is there a Non Surgical Solution to extremely skinny legs? (photo)

Treat skinny legs without surgery
- exercise is worth a try for 6 weeks.
- Calf implants are a good solution but involve surgery and a 6 week recovery.
- External skin expansion with fat implants from liposuction is experimental , some people don't consider liposuction to be surgery. It would avoid implants. Best wishes.

I do not know of any non surgical options for you that work. Calf implants involve surgery and a significant recovery.
To be sure, see two or more board certified and experienced plastic surgeons in your area for a full and complete evaluation.
I hope this helps.
