Oakland County Surgeon Explains
Liposuction for Calves & Ankles–
If you have stubborn pockets of fat on your calves and/or ankles, you know that there is perhaps no tougher area to try and reduce. This is because when fat accumulates on the calves and ankles it is almost entirely due to genetics – and no amount of dieting or exercise will help.
The good news is that thick calves, ankles and so-called “cankles” can now permanently be a thing of the past with calf and ankle liposuction.
Early liposuction procedures on the lower legs used to be fraught with complications and often produced unsatisfactory results. However, improvements in “Tumescent” (minimally invasive) liposuction of the lower legs extremely effective and very popular in the last two decades.
How Calf & Ankle Liposuction are Performed
Neither calf nor ankle liposuction is typically performed on its own. Rather an experienced plastic surgeon will shape the entire lower leg for the most aesthetic results. Liposuctioning the calf and ankle as a single procedure ensures that the best proportions of the lower leg are achieved.
In some cases, Dr. Ali may also perform liposuction of the knees and thighs at the same time as the calves and ankles – to contour the entire leg into a smooth, natural, attractive shape.
In performing calf and ankle liposuction a thin tube called a cannula is gently inserted into the fat layer of the calves or ankles. Moving the cannula slowly back and forth through the fat, the surgeon breaks up the fat cells, which are then sucked out through the cannula.
Dr. Ali performs calf and ankle liposuction with minimally invasive tumescent liposuction, which requires only local anesthetic. Typically, a tiny incision is placed directly below the knee, towards the top of the calf. Using two separate incisions on either side of the calf a smooth and shapely leg is literally “sculpted” into a slimmer, more beautiful shape.
