Can anyone recommend a surgeon for ankles liposuction?
Doctor Answers 8
When looking for a surgeon for something very specific, such as liposuction of the calves and ankles, it is important to find a doctor who routinely performs the procedure and who can show you before and after pictures of patients that they have operated on. These images will not only give you a sense of the surgeon’s skill, but will help you to better visualize the procedure for yourself.
Liposuction as an outpatient procedure under I.V. sedation can reduce the bulge that some people have in their ankles and restore a more shapely leg. Unlike other areas of the body the ankles and calves require a certain delicacy which is why I use several innovative forms of liposuction, including SmartLipo, to contour and resculpture the area while providing the most beautiful results with minimal scarring. SmartLipo, used in combination with other forms of liposuction or alone, is a procedure that uses laser light to liquefy fat and tighten the surrounding skin. I’s thought to involves less downtime and side-effects than traditional liposuction and is particularly good for small areas of fat deposits like the ankles. New technology that's gentler and faster than ever before not only allows the removal of fat, but also resculpts the body.
You need to travel to find a doc who does good calves/ankles liposuction. No way around it.
There are so few lipo docs with the experience and skills to do good calves/ankle liposculpting, who do it under tum. local with the micro canulas and who stands you up to fine tune the results. You just need to travel when it comes to quality work.

I have treated these areas successfully in many patients and the results can achieve a much slimmer appearance to the lower leg/ankle areas. The procedure is done as an outpatient with minimal discomfort and only a few days of recovery.
