Cankles – you’ve heard of them. They are the blend of calf and ankle without the graceful curve. There’s just a sturdy, even line from calf to heel. With ankle liposuction at Metairie Plastic Surgeons in New Orleans, you can kick your cankles to the curb, so to speak.
What is Ankle Liposuction?
Ankle liposuction is a form of plastic surgery in which excess fat deposits on the ankle are removed. It is slightly different from other liposuction surgeries because the fat lies just under the surface of the skin, and no deep pockets of fat develop on the ankles. Our surgeon can use specialized techniques in order to remove this fat.
How to Prepare
There are several things the patient should do to prepare for surgery. For example, for a set amount of time prior to surgery, the patient must stop taking aspirin, non-steroidal anti-inflammatory pain relievers (NSAIDS), and vitamin E. Also, the use of tobacco and alcohol should be avoided.
What to Expect During the Surgery
During the actual procedure, our skilled surgeon can remove the fat that has been plaguing you around your ankles. The exact details of the procedure vary from patient to patient.
What Happens After the Procedure?
Since ankle liposuction is a surgical procedure, there is a recovery involved. It’s important to follow our team’s instructions during this time in order to achieve optimal results. After full healing, the patient can enjoy the new and improved ankle appearance.
