About Calves & Ankle Liposculpture
Women with thick calves and ankles are often helped by liposculpture to these areas. The goal is to reduce the bulk of the calf and make the lower leg look slender. The ideal lower leg should taper all the way down to the ankle, with good definition around the Achilles tendon rising up from the ankle. Liposculpture can achieve all of these. Small amounts of fat removal can change the shape of the ankle dramatically.
Sometimes there are hereditary collections of fat in these areas and removal of these can reduce the circumference of the ankle substantially. The amount of fatty tissue to be removed from the calf varies considerably, but the aim is to make the leg appear finer and more symmetrical. The results of removing even a small amount can be dramatic.

Yes, the reduction in the size of the calf and improved shaping of the ankle is permanent, but the final result may take many months.

The swelling can be worse at the end of day after one has been on her feet all day.
