Flabby knees
Is there any way to reduce the extra skin/flab around my knees. No matter how much gym or running I do, I cannot get rid of this problem.

Dear Nique,

Liposuction or surgery is an option. The main problem is scarring in this area, due to the movement of the knee (in the case of surgery). Please consult with a plastic surgeon for a reasonable assessment.
