I reshape legs, ankles and calves very frequently. If you never wear a skirt because you have a complex, or if you have trouble finding boots that fit, there is one very effective solution: liposuction with small-calibre cannulas.
The technique is rather delicate as the fat is very compact and needs to be removed carefully. This is the area of the body on which I use my smallest calibre cannulas: 3 mm.
The post-operative period (discomfort and swelling) is much longer than in any other part of the body. Below the knee, everything takes longer to get back to normal. You need to envisage 1 year before obtaining the end result. Normally, with liposuction of “saddle bags”, you only need one month to obtain 80% of the result.
In the end, the result is always excellent and the fat cells that are aspirated are permanently destroyed.
Case in which I removed 0.6 litres of fat on each side. The patient’s dream was to be able to wear dresses, something she can now do without complex. If you want proof that it is in fact the same person in the before and after photos, there are 2 solutions: look at the details closely (the shape of the malleoli, the toes…), or call my surgery because this case is in fact my secretary!!!
