I have thick, swollen ankles (cankles), would Liposuction be a permanent remedy for this?

Ankle swelling and liposuction
It is a difficult area to liposuction safely with good results.
Mesotherapy in the ankle has risks as well - because of the blood vessels, tendons and nerves in the area.
I suggest you consult in person a Board Certified Plastic Surgeon to see if what, if anything can be done. You need a personal examination to answer your questions. Best wishes.

Treatment of cankles.
- Cankles can be treated quite effectively with liposuction. It is important to keep your legs wrapped and elevated for an extended period postoperatively. I would suggest that you consult with a board-certified plastic surgeon so that he can evaluate your legs and suggest the most appropriate treatment options
