Hi all,

I’ve been writing about bow legs for quite some time now. I’d like to know what you would like to read about regarding bow legs, and I’ll do my best to research it and try to write about it.
In addition, whenever I find products that are relevant to bow legs I update you all as well, but please help me by giving me feedback on what you would like to know:

Would you like to read more about bow legs exercises?
Would you like to see more bow legs correction videos?
Would you like to read about bow legs real life stories?
Are there any products you are interested in?

I started this blog because I couldn’t find information regarding adults with bow legs and ways to fix this deformity. I would like this blog to be helpful for all of you who are also interested in bow legs and would really appreciate your feedback.

Thanks,

- Shelley

I searched for pictures of before and after the bow legs correction surgery. I found this websites very informative: http://www.doctorveklich.com/patients.htm.
I must say that these pictures (and information from the site) makes me really consider the bow legs surgery option… It doesn’t look too painful, and seems like the results are good too.

I found this on YouTube today, this is an interview with someone who had the bow legs correction surgery with “Ilizarov-Veklich” apparatus. I think that this is a very helpful video for anyone who is interested in the surgery.
He said in the interview that he did it for cosmetic reasons, and I can really relate to that.

Part 1:

Part 2:

I must say that the “Ilizarov-Veklich” apparatus looks to me less frightening than the regular “Ilizarov” apparatus I read about…

I’d like to hear what you thought about this, so please leave comments :)

If you have o-legs/bow legs, you’re probably not comfortable wearing short pants or skirts, especially if you are a woman. The most annoying thing is that wearing short skirts makes you feel uncomfortable because you are afraid that everyone would notice your legs…even in gym class you wear long pants because you think it looks better…Well, there are solutions for this when it comes to what you wear (!!!), and here is my advice:

No: Pants that end just above your knees. These pants might emphasize the shape of your legs, and this is exactly what you want to avoid!

Yes:  Pants that will allow you to show your legs and no one will notice the o shape.

  • Wearing pants that end just bellow you knee (3/4 pants and tights)
  • Long pants that are NOT tight
  • Very short pants

Things you can wear:
