Kiwi doc offers Botox that makes legs look better in stilettos

By Super Admin

Wellington, April 18 (ANI): An increasing number of women are turning to Botox to make their legs look better in stilettos, says an Auckland cosmetic physician.

Dr Garsing Wong, of the Sapphire Appearance Medical Clinic, says there has been a huge demand for his calf-thinning services, which involves using large amounts of Botox to sculpt women's legs and make calf muscles appear less bulky.

Wong is the only cosmetic practitioner offering the service in New Zealand.

The cosmetic physician says the procedure is particularly popular among Asian women.

It is completed in a single session and, while Wong says patients may not see much reduction in the circumference of their calves, it's all about the shape.

"It's for aesthetic reasons only. If women are doing a lot of running or dancing it is not appropriate," Stuff.co.nz quoted Wong as saying.

The strength of the muscle is not affected, but the procedure does counteract building of the muscle, so it is strictly for the non-sporty.

The cost of the procedure varies from about 2000 pounds for a relatively thin pair of legs, to about 7000 pounds, depending on the amount of Botox used. (ANI)
