Excess calf and ankle fat – often referred to as “cankles” – affects millions of people around the world. The term is used to describe a lack of definition between the ankle and calf muscle. It can be a real cause of consternation, resulting in low self-esteem. Thankfully, with calf and ankle liposuction at Ideal Face & Body, it’s possible to permanently eradicate unwanted fat in the calf/ankle area.
Why You Should Consider Calf and Ankle Liposuction
While cankles might not be a medical issue, they can cause embarrassment. Many people with excess calf and ankle fat might feel too self-conscious to wear revealing clothing such as shorts, swimwear or fashionable footwear. With no natural tapering of the lower legs, cankles can cause the legs to be less aesthetically pleasing. Of course, cankles aren’t just experienced by those who are overweight – it’s possible to carry excess weight on the lower legs even if the rest of the body is in otherwise healthy condition.
Unfortunately, sometimes stubborn fat pockets are just impossible to remove with diet and exercise alone. Genetic factors often come into play, which means that the only truly effective solution is to undergo calf and ankle liposuction.
How Calf and Ankle Liposuction Works
Liposuction is one of the most popular cosmetic treatments in the world. It involves a surgeon using specialized techniques to remove the fat from below the skin. Calf and ankle liposuction is a permanent technique for fat removal, which means the results are designed to last indefinitely. While it’s possible for some of the remaining fat cells to enlarge over time (particularly if weight gain is a factor), with the right diet and exercise regimen, there is no reason why liposuction won’t last a lifetime.
Am I a Good Candidate?
If you answer yes to any of the following questions, you could potentially benefit from calf and ankle liposuction:
• Do you have a bulge above the ankle?
