Improve leg contour and definition with minimally invasive liposuctionThe calf and ankle area can be particularly frustrating to patients who have tried unsuccessfully to address it with diet and exercise. We use a combination of liposuction techniques to re-sculpt calves and ankles (and often knees) with very small incisions, which improves the contour of the legs. Patients travel from all over the United States, Europe, Asia and the Middle East to draw on Dr. Copeland's expertise with this challenging area. She was one of the first to reduce calves and ankles with liposuction and has presented her techniques internationally and continues to innovate treatment to improve recovery and reduce downtime.

What Our Patients Are Saying
Frequently Asked Questions
For many patients, the calf and ankle area can be very frustrating because diet and exercise have little impact and leg contour is a condition they have struggled with for some time. The shape of the lower leg is determined by your underlying bone structure, muscle, and fat. For patients that have a maldistribution of fat, particularly around the calf and ankle, liposuction can be a powerful option.
A consultation with the doctor will determine your eligibility based on your specific anatomy and goals. Overall health is also a factor to discuss at your consultation.
Using a combination of liposuction techniques, the lower leg can be sculpted with very pleasing results. Unlike other areas of the body, the ankles and calves require a certain delicacy. This is why we use several innovative forms of liposuction, including SmartLipo, to contour and sculpt the area while providing the most beautiful results with minimal scarring. SmartLipo is a procedure that uses laser light to liquefy fat and tighten the surrounding skin. It’s thought to involve less downtime and side-effects and is particularly good for small areas of fat deposits like the ankles. New technology that’s gentler and faster than ever before not only allows the removal of fat, but also sculpts the legs.
Will I Be Under an Anesthetic When I Have Calf Lipo?
We perform calf and ankle liposuction as an outpatient procedure under I.V. sedation. This “twilight” anesthesia is administered in our fully-accredited surgical suite by board-certified anesthesiologists. Patients are awake shortly after the procedure and able to go home within a short time.
You will see a difference immediately after surgery and the contour will continue to improve over the next several weeks and even months. We take a holistic approach to patient care and include one lymphatic massage in our post-surgery protocol to help reduce swelling and stimulate healing. We also advise wearing compression garments for a period of time to help achieve the best possible results.
Liposuction involves the permanent removal of fat cells. That means the procedure will eradicate the fat from that body part. Regular exercise and a healthy diet will help you avoid gaining weight after your procedure.
At your consultation, you will discuss your goals and how the procedure can help you achieve your objectives. You will receive a written quote of the procedures you discussed with a cost breakdown. Often patients will finance their procedures through Carecredit.com or other finance companies.
