Cankles? Circumferential Liposculpture Can Help

Before & After Circumferential Liposculpture by Dr Hodgkinson for Thick Ankles

Thick ankles or “cankles” are a real problem for some women. Thick ankles are not due to being overweight or weight gain,  but generally speaking present because of an excess of fatty tissue around the lower calf and on the leg above the shoe line. This often makes it difficult to wear boots or footwear with ankle straps.  Many women with thick ankles are highly self-conscious about this and wear slacks or long skirts in order to camouflage their “cankles”.  These women are further frustrated by the fact that weight loss makes no difference as quite often there is a hereditary factor, whereby a mother, sister or relative has the same kind of thick, lower legs.

Liposuction, or what we call circumferential liposculpture, allows us to re-shape the lower third of the lower leg from the knee to the ankle, affording nice curves and defining the achilles tendon  to create a more shapely and feminine look.  This gives the patient the confidence to show her legs – and abandon attempts to camouflage or conceal her legs.  An example of circumferential liposculpture to the lower legs is shown.
