Cankle Reduction

Cankle Reduction is a procedure that will help one reduce the size of their ankles. The term "cankle" is commonly used to describe an ankle that is not much slimmer than its adjoining calf. Cankles are usually caused by excess fat deposits that settle in the lower calf and ankle area. Unlike other areas of the body, ankles do not normally respond well to diet and exercise. Many uncontrollable factors, such as genetics, pre-determine ankle and calf size.

Typically, cankle reduction surgery, uses a combination of liposuction and direct fatty excisions to slim down the ankle area and part of the calf to create a thinner and more balanced look to the lower legs. For those men and women tired of choosing their wardrobe based on cankle concealment, cankle reduction surgery can be a game changer.
