Struggling With Ankle and Calf Fat? Here's What You Should Know
If you're refraining from wearing strap sandals or short skirts because you've got excess fat around your ankles, then you're not alone.
You are looking like you've got a case of the 'cankles.' Cankle is the slang term for the condition in which the lower leg appears to be straight without definition at the ankle.
Fat Ankles Causes
Both large and small women have the following issue with their wide ankles. That's because having fat ankles is sometimes a product of genetics.
In some cases, having swollen ankles is a medical condition that should be thoroughly analyzed. They could be a sign of heart disease, diabetes, or lymphedema.
Therefore, if you aren't sure about the reasons behind their fat ankles, it's highly recommended that you speak to a physician.
If you don't have an underlying medical condition, then this article is for you.
How To Get Rid Of Calf Fat
If you want to get rid of calf fat, it's essential that you first understand that doing calf raises isn't going to work. Fat in a specific area cannot be targeted through exercise alone. Such activity is meant for building muscle.
Burning fat is only possible if you do so overall, which is generally achievable by doing cardio or high-intensity interval exercises to ensure you are in a calorie deficit.
After you've gotten rid of the excess fat in your body and are interested in getting a more toned look, that's when you can start doing calf exercises.
Elite Body Sculpture's Cure For Cankles
We understand that having wide ankles can be a struggle. But it doesn't have to me anymore, thanks to the help of Elite Body Sculpture.
Elite Body Sculpture is the developer of the most optimal fat removal form on the cosmetic procedure market, a patented technology called AirSculpt.
Our minimally invasive process doesn't require the use of a scalpel, needle, stitches, or general anesthesia to remove fat precisely and permanently. Better yet, patients need a downtime of only 48 hours and enjoy artistically sculpted legs that taper gradually.
How Does The Process Work?
To get rid of the calf fat in Dallas, opt for the AirSculpt® CankCüre™, which is performed in the following steps:
- The Elite Body Sculpture nurse uses an AirPen to numb the calf and ankle area. This tool disseminates topical numbing fluid to get the ball rolling.
- A biopsy punch is then used to form a perfectly circular, two-millimeter-sized opening.
- The surgeon applies a local anesthetic and prepares the excess fat for removal.
- The fat is removed with a patented AirSculpt® cannula that plucks cells one by one and helps leave the surrounding skin tighter.
- The opening is naturally left to heal, leaving a mark the size of a freckle.
