Ankle liposuction is a cosmetic procedure designed to reduce excess fat in the ankles to help create a smoother and more contoured appearance on the lower leg. It is usually performed on patients with areas of stubborn fat that are not responsive to diet or exercise or for those who want to address unsightly bulges around their ankles for aesthetic improvement. Unfortunately, ankles and cankles can also be places for heavy water retention due to medication, diet, or chronic conditions. Don’t let health, nature, or genetics determine your destiny – ankle, cankle, and calf liposuction can grant you the sculpted legs you have always dreamed of.

About Ankle Liposuction

You have an eye for the latest styles and would love to wear that new pair of fabulous heels, but your full ankles stop you in your tracks. Don’t worry — ankle liposuction can help! This minimally invasive procedure removes unwanted fat from your ankles and lower leg, resulting in a smoother, more toned appearance that is perfect for showing off.

Liposuction is continually one of the most sought-after aesthetic surgeries to date. [1] Liposuction of the calves and ankles is a simple, minimally invasive procedure. The ankle, like the hand, is especially vulnerable; therefore, selecting a highly skilled and experienced surgeon to access the minute fatty tissues in the ankle region is very important. Our doctors are experienced and trained in the latest liposuction technology and techniques, providing optimal results no matter the area of your body we treat.

Your liposuction will utilize one of the latest methods of fat removal, such as:


Smartlipo uses a laser to liquefy excess fat, which allows your surgeon to remove the right amount of fat. Also known as liposculpting, this method produces terrific results for ankle and calf liposuction patients because of the skin tightening benefits, which further improve contours. [2]

Vaser Lipo

VASER is a newer liposuction technology specifically designed to address stubborn fat deposits like those found in the ankles and calves because it works well with delicate areas of the body. [3] This procedure utilizes ultrasound energy to break down the fat cells, making them easier to remove.

The method used during your procedure will be discussed during your consultation. Ankle liposuction can give you those “wow” legs that stop traffic. Show them off after a visit to our liposuction specialists at Denver Lipo!

What are the Benefits of Ankle Liposuction?

Ankle and calf liposuction can benefit patients by:

  • Removing stubborn fat deposits
  • Tightening the skin in the area, creating a smoother and more toned look
  • Improving the overall contour of your legs
  • Helping you to fit into more fashionable clothing

Our liposuction specialists use the latest methods and technologies to ensure safe and successful results. We also provide detailed instructions before, during, and after surgery to reduce discomfort and help optimize your recovery.

Ideal Candidates for Ankle Liposuction

Any leg, ankle, cankle, or calf liposuction procedure requires that the patient is in good health. Liposuction is always more successful if the patient has relatively good skin tone and elasticity, so there is no remainder of lax skin after treatment. For best results, patients should also be at or near their ideal body weight and have a leg that slightly tapers from the knee to the ankle.

Most importantly, patients should have realistic expectations of what this procedure can do for them. It is wonderful to want more for yourself, but it is essential to understand that surgery can only do so much when it comes to body contour changes. Finally, patients undergoing liposuction procedures should not take certain medications that effect recovery and healing.

Preparing for Your Procedure

To prepare for your ankle liposuction procedure, you will need to:

  • Get certain medications filled and bring them with you on the day of your procedure – we will advise you on which medications to start or stop before surgery
  • Ensure that you have a reliable driver to transport you both to and from your procedure.
  • Plan for someone to spend the first night or two after surgery with you.
  • Follow all instructions given to you for eating and drinking before your procedure.

The Ankle Liposuction Procedure

On the day of your procedure, you should wear loose clothing to make changing easier and more comfortable. Ankle liposuction is an outpatient procedure under local anesthesia, meaning you don’t have to stay overnight in a hospital setting. On average, ankle liposuction takes about 1-2 hours, depending on how much fat needs to be removed.

At Denver Lipo, we only use the “Awake Lipo” method. You will be entirely comfortable during your procedure with only mild oral sedation and local anesthesia; this is far safer than a procedure using general anesthesia. Using a fast-acting local anesthetic ensures that the procedure will be quick and painless.

Your surgeon will start by making small incisions no bigger than a few centimeters. Then, a small cannula is inserted to help suck away fat deposits as your legs become slimmer and shapelier. 

The area surrounding the Achilles tendon is tricky to treat with liposuction. However, our surgeons have performed this particular procedure many times, so you can expect beautiful results and a safe procedure.

Recovery After Ankle Lipo

After your procedure, you may experience some swelling and bruising. You are welcome to take over-the-counter medications for the discomfort. Following your surgeon’s postoperative instructions is essential, including wearing compression garments to reduce swelling and promote healing.

Our patients are generally able to return to their normal activities the day after their procedure. However, we recommend taking up to three days off from work or school, including the day of surgery, to give your body time to heal. Avoid processed food high in sodium and drink plenty of water to replenish your body.

Your Beautiful Results

Ankle and calf liposuction can give you a gorgeous definition and a subtle tapering look that will make you want to wear dresses and shorts and hang out at the beach all year long. The results will be even better if ankle lipo is combined with the lower leg, including the knees and calves.

Your skin will look tight and youthful and only continue to improve as time passes. After the surgery, you should follow a diet high in protein to help your body build new cells and collagen in the treated area.
