Cankle Surgery in Seattle: Is Ankle Liposuction Right For You?
Anyone concerned about the thickness of their calves and ankles due to excess fatty tissue may be looking for cankle surgery.
Thickness in the lower leg can be a concern for many because of the less clear transition from calves to ankles, an element commonly referred to as 'cankles.' This contour deformity can be corrected through conventional surgery, such as tumescent liposuction, to restore its original shape.
Ideal candidates for this procedure are generally healthy patients and are non-smokers. If you smoke, you must commit to not smoking for a period before and after the procedure, since smokers tend not to heal as non-smokers.
It is also essential that candidates not have edema or ankle swelling, given that fluid retention is a condition that should is best treated by a general medical practitioner.
How Is Cankle Liposuction in Seattle Performed?
Cankle and ankle liposuction can be done with the local tumescent anesthesia technique.
It involves forming small incisions in the skin and injecting a solution of epinephrine and lidocaine to numb and swell the fat in the cankle area. This causes it to become 'tumescent' or ideal to begin the fat extraction process.
A cannula is then inserted into the fat and is manually moved to extract it from the cankle area. Most patients experience discomfort post-procedure for around 2-5 days. It's recommended that you take light walks around your house and to rest for about two weeks.
Patients can go back to work after a week, but if your job requires that you stand up and have to operate heavy machinery or carry objects, you should refrain from doing so. Patients must wait two to three months for results to become fully apparent.
Better Than Any Cankle Surgery In Seattle
While tumescent liposuction has been regarded as a prominent example of the efficient removal of cankles, it's important to note that cankle removal is a surgical procedure with many risks and downfalls.
More importantly, it's a procedure that requires extensive recovery time and takes months for results to appear altogether.
Given the technological advancements in the realm of cosmetic surgery, this is no longer optimal. Patients are now looking for risk-free and quick-recovery processes that will give them the body changes they want.
Therefore, the best ankle liposuction alternative in Seattle is the Calf and Ankle AirSculpt® by Elite Body Sculpture.
How Does The Calves+Ankles AirSculpt® Work?
The procedure is performed as follows:
- The targeted area (calves, ankles, or both) are numbed with an AirPen device, which uses pressurized air to distribute the medication to the skin. No needles involved!
- A tiny two-millimeter opening is formed with a biopsy punch, and laser technology is implemented to prepare the fat for extraction. No scalpels and incisions are required!
- After a local anesthetic is applied (we never use general anesthesia), the AirSculpt® cannula's mechanical motion smoothly plucks fat cells from the cankles while simultaneously tightening the area's skin.
- The opening is naturally left to heal, leaving only a freckle-sized scar. No stitches!
