Sorry hear about your condition. It is good to go in for a corrective surgery as uneven pressure onto the outer and inner part of knee-joints it has been proved to lead to early developed arthritis, as well as to knee pain and progressing deformation. Legs deformation and pain are the reasons why a great number of elderly people cannot walk normally and in most cases, after arthritis is developed, need to undergo knee replacement. Mcrosurgery, followed-up by wearing Ilizarov-Veklich device allows 98% risk-free, bloodless, fast (about 40 min) surgery with not heavy external device applied.
Apart from the outlines of an extremity's soft tissues, "the shape of one's legs" is also determined by the alignment of the leg, or so called bio mechanical axis and correlation between the thigh axis and the shin one. The everyday notion "shapely legs" is identified as legs having a correct alignment. The bio mechanic axis of a leg is considered to go through the head of the thigh-bone, the middle of the knee-cap and the first span between the foot fingers. The anatomical axis of a shin runs through the biochemical one of the limb, with the tactical approaches to correcting the shape of lower extremities being based upon complex estimation of those data.
Treatment takes 2.5-3 months (which depends on the extent to which legs are deformed), As the bow legs / genu varum correction surgery requires nearly no soft tissue cutting (micro-wound left that disappears after some time) and is literally bloodless, so you should not have to worry about problems like blood compatibility, or loss of blood, as well as surgery wounds and scarring left by pins.
Conservative management for bow legs is unheard of. It is best you opt for surgical management and do consult an Orthopedician at the earliest.
If you have any more queries do get in touch.

I am a 33 year old female and I've been battling with my bow legs for years. Growing up I was not self -conscious until I was made fun of and really brought me down. I've seen a couple of orthopedics and ask if there's anything I could do, but was let down when I use told no. Now that I know there is such a thing I really want to get this taken care of. Would you know if there is any Doctors in the Monterey Bay area or San Francisco Bay area that perform this type of surgery?
