Calf Liposuction

Calf Liposuction

Liposuction or liposuctionis one of the most practiced procedures in cosmetic surgery; it allows excess fat to be removed using a small suction cannula introduced under the skin through tiny incisions.

A pretty curve

When the indication is good, liposuction of the ankles and calves makes it possible to taper and give a nice curve to the leg by literally sculpting it with gentle lipsuction, with very fine cannulas for optimal results.

Current liposuction techniques allow you to truly reshape the body in a very precise way, including areas known to be difficult such as the ankles and calves.

For calf liposuction to be indicated, the excess volume of the legs must of course be due to excess fat and not to muscular hypertrophy, for example.


It is a relatively long and delicate procedure that should only be performed by a qualified and patient plastic surgeon. The consequences are generally marked by little pain but by edema which can persist for several weeks.

In summary :

  • Intervention performed on an outpatient basis, under general anesthesia.

  • Intervention proportionally longer than a "standard" liposuction, from 1h to 2h30

  • scarsof a few millimeters, very discreet, absorbable threads.

  • Wearing a compression garment24/24 for 4 to 6 weeks is mandatory.

  • Shower possible the day after the operation. no sun exposure for 2 months. 

  • Postoperative pain well controlled by simple analgesics.

  • Result, most often visible immediately, will be final after approximately 3 to 6 months, the time needed for the swelling and bruising associated with the operation to subside.
