Liposuction : Presentation

Liposuction of the ankles and/or calves allows the radical and definitive removal of localised fat.
“Large ankles” often called “post ankles” or “large calves” are the cause of complexes that often prevent patients from wearing skirts. This gives the impression of having heavy, thick, uneven legs, lacking femininity.
The practice of sport or diet does not eradicate this excess localised fat.

Before an ankle
and/or calf liposuction operation

During the consultation Dr Diacakis, a plastic surgeon in Paris, will give you a consent, an estimate, a prescription of the necessary medication for before and after the operation and a preoperative check-up that the anaesthetist can complete if necessary.
Doctor Diacakis will also prescribe you a girdle or panty that you will have to wear for 3 to 4 weeks. The girdle covers from your feet to your stomach.
Any medication containing aspirin will be prohibited 15 days before the operation.
Most often this operation is done under general anaesthesia as these are sensitive areas.
Doctor Richard Diacakis, a plastic surgeon in Paris, will see you in the morning in your room before the operation to take preoperative photos and draw the areas to be removed.  You will be discharged the same evening.

No social security coverage is possible for this aesthetic operation, so no sick leave can be prescribed. It is possible to return to work 7 to 10 days after the operation, so it is important to allow for this period of unavailability. 

The course of an
ankle and/or calf liposuction operation

Ankle and calf liposuction is most often performed under general anaesthesia.
The micro-incisions are camouflaged in the fold of the ankle, taking special care of the incisions. The incisions in the calves are on the anterior side of the knees to absolutely avoid incisions on the posterior side of the thighs, which too often cause marks that are visible for too long.
Liposuction of the ankles takes 1 to 1.5 hours and that of the calves takes about 30 to 45 minutes. Doctor Diacakis, an aesthetic surgeon in Paris, performs this operation with very fine, foamy cannulas, adapted to this specific location.
The length of this operation is due to the fact that particular importance must be attached to creating and respecting the aesthetic curves imposed by the sensual and feminine representation of the ankles and/or calves in a woman.
This operation requires a particular experience in order not to see “the traces of the cannula” because it is essential to respect the superficial fat and to remove only the deep fat in these two areas where the thickness of the fat mattress is not as great as on a horse’s breeches for example.
The panty is taken to the operating theatre.

After an
ankle and/or calf liposuction operation

The panty is worn for about 3 to 4 weeks.
Showering is possible two days later.
The resumption of professional activities is 2 to 7 days for the calves but at least 10 days for the ankles and depending on the professional activity. It will take longer to resume work if you have to stand for a long time or if you have to move around a lot. In the case of the ankles, the oedema will take longer to disappear than in other areas, since the oedema, which is severe, “cannot go any lower”.
The practice of sport should be interrupted for 4 to 6 weeks depending on the context.
When you go out, on the same day, it is essential that you return home by taxi or accompanied by someone. It is forbidden to return by public transport.
Bruises will disappear within 10 to 20 days after the operation if they exist.
Pain, although moderate, can be relieved by simple painkillers.
It will be advisable above all not to expose to the sun or to U.V. rays for 2 months.
The threads are absorbable.

Result of liposuction
of the ankles and/or calves

The time needed to recover and recover from ankle and/or calf liposuction is particularly long, especially for the ankles. It varies greatly from person to person but very often it is uncomfortable for several months.
The result really starts to take shape from one month for the calves and 2 to 3 months for the ankles.
The final result of an ankle and/or calf liposuction is observed after 6 months as with any liposuction.

The price of an ankle and/or calf liposuction

The price of the consultation by Doctor Richard DIACAKIS plastic surgeon in Paris is 100 euros.
