Recontouring your calves using liposuction can help to achieve the look you want. Bulky calves due to excess fat can add to ‘cankles’, where the ankles have excess fatty deposits compared to the rest of the leg, which may be very shapely. Slimline ankles and calves can add to the long-legged look, increasing confidence when wearing shorts, skirts, and dresses.
If your calves are mostly muscle, liposuction won’t help, since liposuction is only useful for removing fat deposits.
Who benefits from ankle, calf and leg liposuction?
- Anyone with bulky or full calves and ankles (men or women)
- Lack of definition around the Achilles tendon
- Thick ankles (‘cankles’)
Precise liposuction techniques can be used to reduce fatty deposits in the calves. The procedure is much like other liposuction procedures, however there is not usually a lot of fat to remove, so the procedure is a smaller one than other, larger areas of the body might be. This all depends on your individual body type and composition.
About ankle, calf and leg liposuction
Liposuction is a long-lasting fat removal technique that involves injecting the area with a special tumescent fluid, making several very small incisions, and sucking fat out using a very small tube, called a cannula. Calf liposuction can create a much more slender profile of the calves and legs, enhancing overall shape. Calf liposuction is a reasonably specialised technique, since the calves are unique in their structure.
This type of liposuction is for fat that won’t budge despite a healthy diet and exercise, and is not a weight-loss solution. The procedure may be done on only one part of the lower leg, since everyone’s fat deposits will be unique to their body.
