    THINGS TO KNOW ABOUT ANKLE LIPO

    Considering the Procedure

    Are there any requirements to have ankle liposuction?

    In Australia two consultations are required to undergo liposuction surgery. These initial consultations are an opportunity to ask questions and gain a clear understanding of the procedure before making a decision about whether you wish to proceed. A referral from your GP, along with a mandatory minimum seven day cooling off period following the second consultation are also required.

    Your treating doctor will examine the areas of fatty tissue that concern you, discuss your final result goals, evaluate your overall health, review any medical conditions you have, and confirm you’re a good candidate for cosmetic surgery. You will also be provided with comprehensive information to read and consider detailing the risks, side effects, and complications of Vaser Liposuction.

    During the appointments the doctor will ensure you understand that liposuction procedures for body contouring are not weight loss surgery, explain the Vaser Liposuction technique in depth, the type of sedation to be used for your procedure, and the projected recovery time you may potentially experience.

    WHAT DOES ANKLE LIPOSUCTION INVOLVE

    Having the Procedure

    What happens during surgery?

    Excess fat cells in the ankle area can be reduced using Vaser Liposuction technology. This cosmetic procedure is a surgical option for good candidates with realistic expectations, and is performed using the following steps:

    • In the first stage of ankle fat reduction surgery IV sedation (either twilight sedation or general anaesthetic) is combined with a local anaesthetic numbing solution in each treatment area. The level of IV sedation used depends on the personalised needs of each individual patient.
    • The doctor will make small incisions around the base of the leg to allow the introduction of a thin cannula into the ankle area. This specialised tool utilises ultrasound energy to heat up collagen fibre and melt the unwanted fat cells into a liquid-like consistency.
    • In the final stage of surgery, the targeted fatty tissue is suctioned out of the area and removed from the body via the same small incision sites. Following the procedure a compression garment is worn, and regular follow-up appointments at the clinic are scheduled to monitor progress.

    What can I expect after an ankle liposuction procedure?

    After ankle fat reduction surgery, you will be able to return home on the same day as your procedure. A compression garment is also worn for a minimum of 6 weeks or longer post lipo to the ankle area, to minimise ankle swelling and support skin tightening.

    At Cosmos Aesthetics, we provide detailed post-operative information for all patients having surgery to treat their ankle fat, including regular follow-up appointments, elevating their feet at the end of each day to reduce fluid retention and swelling build up, and self-massaging the ankle areas daily throughout the recovery period.

    Is there much ankle swelling after liposuction surgery?

    It is extremely important to understand that all patients will experience swelling in the ankle area for 3-6 months or longer during the recovery time following ankle lipo.

    The length of time ankle swelling remains will vary, and can exceed past 6 months depending on the individual. This is due to the treated ankle area being further away from the heart in comparison to other areas of the body typically treated with liposuction (such as the abdomen or flanks). Because of this, the recovery time from ankle liposuction surgery will also be longer than other areas.

    All patients must remember that a build up of fluid retention and ankle swelling will delay the final results, and this is very normal.

    Are my calf muscles also good candidates for lipo?

    If your lower leg concerns include both your ankle area and calf muscles, your calf muscles may be suitable for treatment with either Vaser Liposuction or injectables for muscle relaxation at Cosmos Aesthetics. Please find more information here regarding cosmetic procedures for calf muscles.

    Where can I have a consultation for liposuction surgery?

    Both your initial consultations for ankle liposuction surgery and your Vaser Liposuction procedure can be undertaken at one of our Cosmos Aesthetics clinics located across Australia in: Sydney, Canberra, Adelaide, and the Gold Coast. To discuss if you might be a good candidate for ankle lipo, please contact us today!
