Dr. Copeland's techniques for improving legs.

by Maggie Bullock

Plastic surgeon Michelle Copeland, M.D., zaps sagging skin around the knees and thighs with the radio frequency device Thermage®. If that's not enough, she sculpts legs using a combination of ultra sonic liposuction (in which fat is liquefied for easier removal with less bruising) and power-assisted liposuction (PAL) through small hard-to-detect incisions in the back of the knee and the side of the ankle.
