Knees & Ankles Liposuction

Knees/Ankles Liposuction

Improve the appearance of your lower limbs with knees/ankles lipo in Santa Monica. Delicate ankles, along with tapering legs with beautiful knees are desirable qualities many people want to achieve. Learn more about how liposuction can help you with your cosmetic goals.

What Is Knees/Ankles Lipo?

Liposuction of the knees and ankles removes excess fat from these regions, enhancing the contours of your lower legs.

Lumpy knees can easily ruin the aesthetics of your well-toned legs, but liposuction can eliminate their swollen appearance. Thick ankles can be reduced in size by liposuction to create more balance.

With the use of the tumescent technique, knees/ankles lipo can achieve lasting results. The minimally invasive technique guarantees faster healing and less downtime.

Am I a Good Candidate for Knees/Ankles Lipo?

If you want to remove the fatty deposits from your knees or ankles, then you may be an ideal candidate for this type of liposuction procedure. You can reduce unwanted shadows and bulk in these specific areas to attain a toner and slimmer physique.

You have to be in good overall health and with realistic expectations before you undergo this procedure. Ideally, you are a non-smoker or are willing to quit.

If you have arthritis, you may not be a good candidate for this procedure.

Your Consultation

During your consultation in Santa Monica with Dr. Ralph A. Massey, a physical examination of your knees and ankles will be performed. Express your concerns and desired results so that a personalized treatment plan will be developed for you.

You will be asked about your medical history, including past surgeries, underlying conditions, and current medications.

The Procedure

Dr. Massey employs a revolutionary technique and will carry out the procedure without the need for general anesthesia. Local anesthesia may be administered before the procedure.

A tiny incision will be made. Then, a thin cannula will be inserted into strategic sites in the target areas. The thin tube suctions out the fat cells to reshape and resize your knees and/or ankles for better contours.
