What options do I have to treat the loose skin on my legs, thighs and ankles?
An in person examination is needed. Depending on the quality of your skin and the amount of fat, liposculpting can be done.
Although your pictures are helpful, it's virtually impossible to make a specific recommendation without a physical examination. Your pictures suggest that you would be a good candidate for liposuction. Unfortunately, liposuction of the calves is associated with significant prolonged swelling.
For this reason, it's important to consult a board certified plastic surgeon with experience in this area who can formulate a treatment plan based on your physical examination. This surgeon should be able to formulate a plan that addresses your anatomic findings and achieves your aesthetic goals.
Need to improve appearance of legs
That said, careful liposuction is probably the best approach.
See a Board Certified Plastic Surgeon. Be sure to review your photographs with the surgeon to discuss specifically what areas should be treated and what to expect. Best wishes.

While swelling from liposuction anywhere else on the body may last 6 months to one year, ankle swelling can last up to two years.
Although this seems very long, the results are worth it after that period of time.
please select your consultations with board-certified plastic surgeons carefully to find the right practitioner to achieve the results you want if possible.
