The painful surgery some women go through to leg slimmer legs
In Japan and Korea recently there are a lot of women who undergo painful surgery in order to make their calves thinner. This is not simply removing fat, since especially in Korea there are many women who have genetically large calves muscles. Having large muscles in the legs is rather difficult to slim down even with exercise as it in difficult to burn away solid muscle. Therefore plastic surgeons have devised a way to reduce the bulk a simpler way.
Basically they insert needles into the muscle targeting certain tendons and destroy them, making the muscle relax and slim down. Of course the rehabilitation could take a few week before the patient is able to walk normally again. However many women are prepared to endure this slight inconvenience in order to have slimmer calves.
