Ankle Liposuction Atlanta

You want to wear sexy shoes in the latest fashion but you can’t because of your fat ankles. Sometimes it is just where fat deposits lodge themselves and where ankle liposuction can really fix the problem of fat ankles.

Unfortunately, ankles and cankles can also be places for heavy water retention sites due to medication, diet, or chronic conditions. That is why we suggest you visit our office for a free complimentary consultation. This will help you decide if you could benefit from different procedures that comprise lower body liposuction.

Ankle, cankle, and calf liposuction can do what nature and genetic disposition cannot. Together they may give the sculpted legs you have always dreamed of.

What is ankle liposuction?

Liposuction of the calves and ankles is a simple, minimally invasive procedure. Tumescent Liposuction removes the fat cells that can be so stubbornly resistant to diet and exercise using a local anesthetic and a powered straw called a cannula. Different techniques are used depending on the area. They have names including Smartlipo, WaterLipo, and Vaser.

The ankle area, just like the hand, is extremely sensitive. It is crucial to have the best and most proficient surgeon to access the tiny fatty tissue in these areas of the body.

The doctor will be careful not to poke the area to prevent unsightly dimpling on the side of the ankle.

How does ankle liposuction work?

  1. Oral sedation and local anesthesia

At Atlanta liposuction, we only use the Awake Lipo method. You are kept entirely comfortable with only mild oral sedation and local anesthesia. It is far safer than a procedure using general anesthesia. The use of a fast-acting local anesthetic ensures that the procedure will be quick and painless. You can always talk to the doctor during the procedure.

  1. Micro cannula to minimize trauma

After making small incisions, the surgeon inserts a small cannula (a tiny straw-like device) to access the fat cells and suction away the fat deposits to slim and shape your lower legs.

  1. SmartLipo treatment for contouring

In some instances, the surgeon may decide that some skin tightening would give better definition and use a three wave length laser to finish the procedure.

  1. No sutures necessary

The operation is done rapidly and there is no need for sutures. The incisions are left open to allow excess tissue and liquid to exit and will heal on their own. Keep them clean. After a few weeks, they will be the size of a small freckle.

  1. Early release

With modern local anesthetics, the effects wear off rapidly and you will be released rapidly. Make sure you have a ride home and plan to relax for the first day after surgery.

Who is the right candidate for ankle liposuction?

Any leg, ankle, cankle, calf liposuction procedure requires that you:

  • Be in good health
  • Have a leg that is tapering from the knee to the ankle for best results
  • Be at, or close to, your ideal weight
  • Have good skin elasticity to help tighten the skin after surgery
  • Have realistic expectations of your results
  • Not using drugs that cause water retention

Results You Can Expect from Ankle Liposuction

It can give you a gorgeous definition and a subtle tapering look that will make you want to wear dresses, shorts and hang at the beach.

If the procedure is combined with the lower leg, including the calf and potential cankles, the results will be excellent.

The Smartlipo liposuction technique uses a laser to liquefy excess fat, which allows the surgeon to remove the right amount of fat. This is called sculpting and produces terrific results.

After the surgery, you should follow a diet rich in fresh fruits and vegetables. It will help the body build new cells and collagen in the treated area. The skin will look tight and youthful.

Avoid processed food high in sodium and drink plenty of water to replenish your body as it eliminates the cells and excess fat tissue.

Preparing for Ankle Liposuction

To get ready for your ankle liposuction, you’ll need to follow a few simple steps:

  • Get your medications filled and bring them with you on the day of your procedure
  • Have a driver who can get you to and from your procedure
  • Plan for someone to spend the first night or two after surgery with you
  • Follow all instructions given to you for eating and drinking prior to your procedure
  • Stop taking any medications or vitamins as directed to avoid bleeding risks
  • Wear loose clothing to your procedure to make changing easier and more comfortable

Recovery Following Ankle Liposuction

Liposuction patients are generally able to return to their normal activities the day after their procedure. However, we recommend that you take up to three days off from work or school (including the day of surgery) to give your body time to heal.

Patients should wear their compression garments until advised by their doctor.
