Yes. But pretty please find a skilled injector. Kybella is another option. It's a subcutaneous injection and you may need 2 or 3 sessions spaced out by several months.

The guarded answer is yes it can.  You must have about 1.5 cm thickness of fat or more for it to be reasonable.  Additionally, you must have good circulation in the legs.  Usually only the lateral, medial, and posterior can be lipoed.
