Calf and Ankle Liposuction: What's Surgery and Recovery Like?

Calf and Ankle Liposuction

A well-contoured body with smooth and natural lines is a coveted feature for both men and women. Nevertheless, such an aesthetic is quite challenging to obtain without knowing the causes or the process that is necessary to do so.

In some cases, the desire for a better body isn't centered on the arms, legs, and breasts; sometimes, it revolves around the calves and ankles.

Patients that lack definition between the calves and ankles suffer from what's casually known as cankles. The disproportionate look can cause a lack of self-confidence, causing you to wear pants and even long skirts at all times.

The frustration becomes even worse when exercise and diet don't offer you the results you're looking for. Read further on to see and understand what you could be doing wrong.

Diet and Exercise Basics That You Must Follow

You must first understand that you can only do so when wanting to burn fat through exercise if you got at it in an overall manner. That means that targeting areas to burn fat is impossible.

In this case, you should do cardio. Isolation exercises such as calf raises are only useful for toning the muscles once the fat has dissipated.

And in terms of diet, you should only rely on one simple rule: to follow a calorie deficit diet. For example, this entails eating 500 fewer calories a day to equate to losing a pound of fat a week.

While the former suggestions will provide results for you, you might also consider undergoing liposuction to further enhance your results. 

Tumescent liposuction for the calves and ankles isn't a weight-loss procedure; it's designed to extract fat from the area to contour and add definition. This is generally performed by forming incisions around the calves and ankles and then using a cannula to extract the fat.

Calf Liposuction Recovery

Patients that undergo tumescent liposuction can return to their daily routine after 48 hours and will have to undergo a recovery regime for about two months.

Elite Body Sculpture's Cankle Solution

If you want to undergo the best procedure for excess fat on the ankles: the AirSculpt® CankCüre™ by Elite Body Sculpture.

The minimally invasive surgery doesn't even use a scalpel, needle, or general anesthesia and comes with a downtime of only 48 hours.

The recovery time in itself is much shorter than traditional ankle liposuction procedures, about two weeks, given the precise and safe nature of AirSculpt® technology. If you want to look your best, then work with the best. Head to Elite Body Sculpture San Diego for your first consultation.
