Flabby knees

Is there any way to reduce the extra skin/flab around my knees. No matter how much gym or running I do, I cannot get rid of this problem.

Dear Nique,

Liposuction or surgery is an option. The main problem is scarring in this area, due to the movement of the knee (in the case of surgery). Please consult with a plastic surgeon for a reasonable assessment.

You should consult a medical practitioner or other appropriate health care professional for a physical exmanication, diagnosis and formal advice.

Well, I just would like to understand the scarring in the area. I don't doubt it, I would just like to understand it. I think that a lot of people envision their knees as being fat or flabby or something, but knees are knees - you know? What exercises could target the muscle group around the knees? Anybody know?
