Ankle Implants? (photo)

I have super skinny ankles and large (size 12 US) feet - not a good combination. Working out my calf muscles has increased their size slighlty but only accentuates the skinny ankle look. The size view looks ok but from the front they look disproportionately thin. Is there an implant that could increase ankle size, to put everything into better proportion?

Skinny ankles

The ankles are chiefly bone, tendon, nerves and blood vessels.
A very soft silicone ankle implant might help  - experimental and requires custom-made. implants. 
Fat implants may help. Three treatments may be needed; results are unpredictable.

There are no ankle implants that I'm aware of.  Many patients are interested in enhancing their ankles.  Unfortunately, there are no good options.  Fat injection may work if injected over several sessions.  This can become expensive and still may not work.  Sorry...
