Can I have fat injections injected into my very skinny legs to improve their looks?

Q:

I have very skinny legs and therefore hate wearing shorts.  Can I have fat injections injected into my legs?  Can this be done in just one session and approximately how much would this cost?

A:

 The short answer is yes but, several treatments are more than likely providing you have adequate donor areas. These procedures can be expensive and care must be taken during each procedure for the prevention of leg clots (DVT/PE). Consider a consult with one of the many members of the ASAPS in your area who is familiar with Fat Grafting to address your concerns. Best,
