Get Rid of Those Troublesome Cankles with Ankle Liposuction

Cankles - the thick layer of fat around the ankles and calves – is a common aesthetic concern, especially women. Excess fat in the calf and ankles is usually resistant to diet and exercise and can affect your overall appearance, especially when you wear clothes that expose your lower legs. Ankle liposuction in New York City is an ideal option to get rid of those troublesome cankles. Performed using the advanced laser-assisted Smartlipo Triplex system, the procedure deliver liquefies and gently removes stubborn fat deposits.

This laser liposuction procedure involves making tiny incisions at the treatment site – the ankles and calves – to deliver laser energy and liquefy the fat. The FDA-approved minimally invasive Smartlipo Triplex workstation features three laser wavelengths (1064 nm, 1320 nm, and 1440 nm) that work to melt targeted fat, coagulate the tissues and tighten the loose skin for the best results. Laser liposuction also encourages the production of collagen, which provides excellent skin tightening effects. Other benefits of Smartlipo-assisted ankle liposuction at a reliable New York body sculpting center include-

• Minimally-invasive procedure
• Effective tissue tightening
• Short treatment time and quicker recovery
• Short downtime and quick recovery
• Outpatient procedure
• Minimal surgical trauma and reduced downtime
• Involves local anesthesia

Ideal Candidates

To obtain all the benefits of laser-assisted ankle liposuction, you need to be a good candidate for it. The treatment is an ideal option for adults who meet the following criteria:

• Have fat and bulky calves, as well as thick and poorly defined ankles
• Have localized thickness or significant fat deposits in specific regions of the calves (like lower lateral fibular, medial tibial, or the ankle area)
• Are 20 – 30 years of age with good skin tone
• Have good skin elasticity with no sun damage or sagging
• Are in good health and close to their ideal weight
• Have realistic expectations

People are not considered good candidate for this treatment if they have –

• Signs of a tendency toward venous insufficiency and edema
• Larger lower extremities secondary to muscular hypertrophy
• Active phlebitis
• A history of hyper-coagulation including deep venous thrombosis or thromboembolic events

Proper Post-Operative Care for Smooth Recovery

Though laser liposuction is a minimally invasive treatment, proper after care is an important requirement for smooth recovery and good results. Patients need to diligently follow their plastic surgeon’s post-operative instructions. Here are some important things you need to know about ankle liposuction recovery and aftercare –

• Wear the compression garment as instructed to reduce swelling, improve blood circulation, flush out of harmful fluids, and speed up the healing process.
• Take the prescribed pain relief medications as advised – this will help with any pain, discomfort and tenderness.
• Avoid heavy activities like lifting or those involving physical or mental stress, especially during the first two weeks after surgery. Routine exercise can be started at about 4 weeks after the procedure.
• Shower only 24 hours after the surgery.
• To speed healing and reduce risk of complications, stop smoking and alcohol use as recommended.
• Follow a balanced diet and get plenty of rest.
• Do not use aspirin-containing products for at least a week.
• Drink a sufficient amount of water to keep the body hydrated.
• Clean the incisions every day, apply the prescribed antibiotic ointment, and change the dressing.
• Light walking may be recommended on the day after surgery. Walking slowly can reduce swelling and lower the chances of blood clotting.
• Keep your follow-up appointments.

In most cases, patients get back to work within a few days (though this may depend on the nature of their work or occupation). The final results of the procedure may vary among patients based on the amount of fat removed and other individual considerations. As weight gain can significantly affect liposuction results, it is important to stick to a healthy lifestyle after the procedure.

If you are planning to get ankle liposuction in NYC, find a reliable AAAASF-accredited plastic surgery practice. Such practices offer the services of plastic surgeons who are experts in using Smartlipo technology to perform the procedure. Patients can also expect end-to-end care and support through treatment and recovery.
