Ankle Liposuction (for Cankles)

"Cankles" refers to the area where the calf and ankle meet. This can be a frustrating area for some women who are genetically predisposed to have more fat in their legs and ankles. In many cases, diet and exercise can not eliminate fat from this area and it is not possible to achieve definition between the calf and ankle. Dr. Copeland can re-sculpt the area by using a combination of liposuction procedures, including fine laser beams (Smart Lipo) and cannulas that allow fat to be removed through very small incisions providing improved contour to the ankles and calves. This is a more complex liposuction technique which should be performed by a board-certified plastic surgeon who performs this procedure frequently. The procedure is performed under "twilight" anesthesia and patients are walking within a few hours.

Cankles Testimonial
I want you to know how pleased I am with the way my legs look. Even though it's winter, I notice how much better my boots fit and I am now able to tuck my jeans into the boots which I could never do before. I can't wait to go shopping for summer clothes. Thank you so much. I feel so much better about myself and it may seem silly, but I have so much more confidence with myself.
