Calf & Ankle Liposuction – Everything you  MUST Know

Calf & Ankle Liposuction – Everything you MUST Know

Liposuction is a procedure that removes excess fat and can be used on many areas of the body to smooth and aesthetically define. This is true even in the calf where fat distribution is, unfortunately, genetically predisposed, and stubborn to get rid of with diet and exercise. Liposuction of the calf area can remove unwanted, excess fat and contour the calves, knees, and ankles to create a slim, desirable leg.

Liposuction of the calves can address many of the issues affecting those who are unhappy with the appearance of large, fatty calves, like dimpling, and thick ankles. By reducing bulk within the calves, calf liposuction can also improve muscle definition and definition of the Achilles tendon.

Though the idea of calf liposuction is general, each calf liposuction procedure should be tailored to the needs of the patient to achieve their desired results. In some cases, a patient may require a reduction in the overall size of the calf, while another patient could benefit from more targeted treatment to better define and curve the calf.

Calf liposuction is generally performed under local anesthesia, and typically takes two to three hours to perform. The calf liposuction begins with 1-2 tiny incisions in the calf where the cannula is inserted. The cannula is gently moved back and forth to break up fat and suction it from the area. Once the fat is removed, the calves appear more sculpted and streamlined. Calf liposuction can also be used to help reduce the size of the ankles. Ankle contouring can enhance the results of calf liposuction, as both work together to create a contoured and well-defined leg.

Recent data has shown that liposuction is one of the most popular and safe cosmetic procedures when done by a Board-Certified Plastic Surgeon. The complication rate of liposuction is approximately 5%, with most of these complications being minor.

Calf liposuction is a popular procedure and is suitable for men and women. Those who could benefit most from calf liposuction are those:

  • With localized fat pockets in the calves and/or ankles
  • With an advanced case of lipedema
  • Who are healthy
  • Who have stable, normal body weight
  • With elastic, firm skin types
  • With realistic, achievable expectations

Calf liposuction is not ideal for those with critical health conditions, such as diabetes or are extremely overweight.

As a body contouring expert with year of experience, Dr. Agha has developed his own approach to calf liposuction and liposculpting that uses VASER liposuction and micro-cannulas to remove and sculpt calves and ankles.  VASER which stands for vibration amplification of sound energy at resonance, is a type of liposuction that breaks apart fat cells via sound energy and loosens them from deeper tissues so fat is more uniformly removed. It is able to disrupt the connection between fatty tissue and the muscles underneath without hurting the underlying healthy tissue. With VASER liposuction, unwanted fat can be gently and precisely removed.

Being cutting edge and highly effective, VASER requires a skilled and experienced provider, like those at The Aesthetic Centers. If you desire a beautifully defined and sculpted leg, calf liposuction and ankle contouring could be for you. Call to schedule your consultation with our expert, certified doctors today.
