Fat Pad Under Knee

Hi, no matter how overweight or underweight I am I have fat pads under the front inner corners of my knees.  I've had them for as long as I can remember.  I have been dieting recently and would now wear shorts as the rest of my legs are toned, but these pockets of fat stop me.  Is there anything I can do at home to get rid of them?  Does anyone else have the same problem?  Thanks

I have them too and have no idea how to get rid of them.  I'm not really into wearing shorts anyway, but if I feel like it, I do.  I'm over weight all over, so bit of fat on my knees isn't a big deal...........lol.  

If your legs are toned and you don't have any other problems, I guess I'd say "go for the shorts anyway"...............

Me, too, even when I'm thinner. All the women in my family---fat, thin & in between---for generations has had 'em. If anyone ever finds a "cure", short of lipo, let me know!

I have that as well. A long side it, I have what looks like swollen ankles.  For this reason, I rarely wear skirts let alone shorts!  I've always  been slightly overweight and always thought that was the reason.  Now, I'm almost underweight and still have the same problem.  I was told by a friend that might be water retention.  I'm going to talk about them to my GP for the first time next week and see what happened.  If anyone out there knows anything about this, please let us know.
