Compression is required

First liposuction of the ankles is very rare.  You need to make sure you are talking to a real Plastic Surgeon.  You will need compression on the areas suctioned, end of story.

Fat on knees and ankles

There is now a small adaptor with Coolsculpting for these areas.  Please consult an expert for the best cosmetic results.  Coolsculpting is much less invasive than liposuction.  Best, Dr. Green

Don't worry about compression stockings! Worry about getting the best doc to do your calves and ankles.

Calves and ankles are very unique in its approach for liposuction since very few ol us can do them. You need the small micro cannulas and tum. local so I can stand you up several times during the procedure to fine tune the areas for best results. Compression hose is needed day and night for 2 weeks and during the day for another 6 weeks. You can of coarse skip days occasionally.

Its very important

With any type of liposuction to any area it is very important to wear compression garments this helps with healing and with shaping of the area.
