What can I do to improve the looks of my lumpy legs? They just look terrible and depress me greatly. Gym does not help (Photo)

I want my legs to look better. I work outside (sailing instructor/Stand Up Paddle Board/kayak tours) go to the gym but my leg just look terrible. I had lipo a few years ago and they actually looked worse after the procedure. One Doctor I sent photos to said this is lymphedema or cellulitis and if that's true is there a surgical procedure that would help smooth out my legs? Thank you.

Lumpy legs

Best advice is to obtain a consultation with a board certified plastic surgeon near you experienced in body contouring and thigh lifting procedures. They can examine you, then discuss treatment options with you in detail.

You would need a formal evaluation as this likely needs a thigh lifting procedure with non invasive options.  I suggest seeing a body contouring expert. Best, Dr. Emer
