Surgery for Cankles
You do not have to live with Cankles. Excess fat around the lower leg can occur for multiple reasons. Obesity, genetics, or Lipedema can all result in excess tissue around the ankle and calf. This can still occur if you are healthy and active. Exercise will rarely solve the problem.
The surgery is performed as an outpatient. There is no major incisions. Down time is typically 1-2 weeks, but the full recovery can take many months for all the swelling to fade away. We will work with you to transition through the appropriate compressive garments to ensure a streamlined recovery.
