Ankle Liposuction Denver
You want to wear sexy shoes in the latest fashion but you can’t because of your fat ankles. Sometimes it is just where fat deposits lodge themselves and where ankle liposuction can really fix the problem of fat ankles.
Unfortunately, ankles and cankles can also be places for heavy water retention sites due to medication, diet, or chronic conditions. That is why we suggest you visit our office for a free complimentary consultation. This will help you decide if you could benefit from different procedures that comprise lower body liposuction.
Ankle, cankle, and calf liposuction can do what nature and genetic disposition cannot. Together they may give the sculpted legs you have always dreamed of.
What is ankle liposuction?
Liposuction of the calves and ankles is a simple, minimally invasive procedure. Tumescent Liposuction removes the fat cells that can be so stubbornly resistant to diet and exercise using a local anesthetic and a powered straw called a cannula. Different techniques are used depending on the area. They have names including Smartlipo, WaterLipo, and Vaser.
The ankle area, just like the hand, is extremely sensitive. It is crucial to have the best and most proficient surgeon to access the tiny fatty tissue in these areas of the body.
The doctor will be careful not to poke the area to prevent unsightly dimpling on the side of the ankle.
How does ankle liposuction work?
At Denver, we only use the Awake Lipo method. You are kept entirely comfortable with only mild oral sedation and local anesthesia. It is far safer than a procedure using general anesthesia. The use of a fast-acting local anesthetic ensures that the procedure will be quick and painless.
Denver’s surgeons, start by making small incisions.
They then insert a small cannula (a small straw-like device) to suction away the fat deposits to slim and shape your lower legs.
The Achilles tendon is a tricky area to treat with liposuction. You want to make sure that your doctor has performed this particular procedure many times to avoid pain in the weeks following this surgery.
The procedure is done in our office. The final results and recovery time are relatively short.
Any form of liposuction is not a replacement for weight loss.

- Have a leg that is tapering from the knee to the ankle for best results
- Be at, or close to, your ideal weight

- Have realistic expectations of your results
