A lack of definition in the lower leg can cause embarrassment when wearing shorts, bathing suits, and skirts. While diet and exercise are effective in reducing the overall fat content of the body, it is impossible to target specific areas for improvement. If you are unhappy with the size or shape of your lower legs, calf liposuction can provide a sculpted, defined calf and ankle. During calf liposuction, excess fatty tissue is removed from the lower legs through small incisions made at the ankle and knee. After the procedure, you may experience prolonged swelling in the legs. Swelling can be reduced by wearing compression hose in the weeks following your liposuction procedure. Once the swelling abates, you will enjoy shapelier, sculpted lower legs that you will be pleased to show off.
