Question

I would like to know what treatment is best, I'm 19 and weigh just under 8 stones but I have a big confidence issue with my thighs.

I'm very healthy and work out 5 times a week but I can't seem to loose the thighs as I have problems with my joints so can't exercise my legs fully.

I have spoken to my GP and he clams as I'm not overweight surgeons won't touch me, Is this true?

Answer

Sometimes, the volume in the Lakes is related to fatty tissue, their position and sometimes it is a combination of water retention and fatty tissue excess when there are problems of lymphatic circulation.

You can talk to your GP about having a referral and assessment with someone who specialises in problems of lymphatic circulation in the legs to exclude this as a possible cause, or if it is contributing to help with treatment.
