Liposuction for Calf Contouring

Large calves caused by fat are a concern that many people suffer from. High density fat deposits in this area can be contoured away using the latest and most precise Vaser Liposuction method.

Liposuction for Calf Contouring: What to Expect

Vaser Liposuction to the calves is a walk in-walk out procedure performed under mild sedation. This cutting edge procedure is gentle enough to be performed with local anaesthetic under light sedation, making it a safer option than a procedure requiring a general anaesthetic. Vaser Liposuction uses ultrasound energy to deliver precise results, by melting fat cells and promoting skin tightening. During the procedure, a small ultrasound probe is passed under the skin to dissolve the fatty layer before it is suctioned away.  The procedure can melt a brick of fat into a softer state;  like a slab of butter, thus allowing the fat to be gently removed.

When can I expect to see results?

You will see results approximately 6 months after your procedure. (*Results may vary from patient to patient). Before this time due to the calf area being so far away from the heart,  swelling can occur.

The examples, predictions, and results offered on this website vary from individual to individual. Results take time. They can be seen in as little as 6 weeks. This time may vary considerably depending on each individual. 6 weeks is a typical example. Results are effected by a number of factors, predominantly the way in which a patient follows instructions post surgery and the manner in which the patient behaves generally post surgery. Diet and exercise play an important part in the health and well being of a patient and in the maintenance of their body shape. Results will also vary purely based on the general make up of each patient and whether they have had surgery previously
