How Can I Get Rid of Cankles?

How Can I Get Rid of Cankles?

“Cankles” are a bothersome problem for both men and women. Lack of definition to the lower legs can affect the clothing choices you make and the activities you participate in. Unfortunately, cankles are often non-responsive to diet and exercise alone. While the rest of your body may look great, fat deposits around the ankles just won’t go away. But don’t worry, if you’re ready to get rid of cankles, we’ve got the solution for you.

At Correa Plastic Surgery, we find the most effective way to get rid of bothersome cankles is calf liposuction. Patients are able to quickly say ‘goodbye’ to cankles and ‘hello’ to a sculpted pair of calves. Liposuction techniques have come a long way in the past decade allowing men and women to get the results they want with minimal discomfort or downtime.

How Does Calf Liposuction Work to Remove Cankles?

There are several methods Dr. Correa may choose to enlist when it comes to calf liposuction. At the time of your initial consultation, he’ll determine the precise locations where fat deposits have accumulated over time. Calf liposuction is intended to target the diet and exercise resistant fat that most people have a hard time getting rid of.


Calf liposuction is done as an outpatient procedure and typically takes about 1-2 hours to complete. Before your procedure, a lidocaine and epinephrine injection will be given to minimize discomfort and reduce bleeding. Dr. Correa will then make several tiny incisions and use a thin cannula tube to gently vacuum fat away.

Why is Calf Liposuction the Best for Cankles?

Patients can achieve dramatic, long-term results with calf liposuction. The procedure is both safe and effective for giving patients a more sculpted appearance. Maintaining healthy lifestyle choices can prolong the outcome of your surgery indefinitely.

Modern liposuction doesn’t require an extensive recovery period. In fact, most patients are able to return to work in just 5-7 days. Strenuous activities should be avoided until full recovery occurs 3-4 weeks post-op. Side effects from calf liposuction are minimal but often include swelling and bruising at the treatment site.

Dr. Correa is a board-certified plastic surgeon who routinely performs successful calf liposuction procedures. He works closely with each patient to help them meet their desired outcome with the least amount of pain, scarring, or downtime possible. Get rid of bothersome cankles so you can feel comfortable in your own skin and wear the clothing you love with confidence.


Calf liposuction can be done on its own or paired with ankle or inner knee liposuction for total lower leg rejuvenation. During your in-person consultation, Dr. Correa will listen to your concerns, perform an evaluation, and recommend a treatment plan that’s right for you.
