What Can Be Done About Skinny Ankles?

I have very skinny, bony ankles. What kind of cosmetic surgery can I do? How long will it last? Generally, what are the pros and cons of having cosmetic surgery for my ankles?

Due to the poor blood supply and relatively thin tissue in this area, most surgeons do not perform cosmetic procedures such as fat grafting in this area. I would strongly advise you to avoid the temptation to undergo any cosmetic procedures around the ankle other than sclerotherapy or laser treatments.
