Liposuction of the calves to refine the lower legs and ankles

Calf liposuction is a cosmetic calf surgery procedure that removes excess fat from the calves and sculpts the lower leg.

Calves can be large because of well-developed muscles, but for many people, it is excess fat in the calves.

Calf liposuction is usually combined with ankle liposuction to treat “pole legs.”

Excess fat in the calves is very common and it is very difficult or almost impossible to lose this excess fat through diet or sports activity.

This cosmetic surgery procedure is intended for people who complain of having overly fat calves. This is often a source of a major complex, and these people no longer dare to wear shorts, skirts or bathing suits.

Women also often complain about not being able to wear boots, because they have difficulty closing them.

This information sheet was written in December 2021 by Dr. Ralph ABBOU and Dr. Rachel PESSIS who are plastic surgeons in Paris.
