What is Ankle Aesthetics?
The surgical procedures performed on the fat tissues in the lower knee site and the ankle part to give a more elegant and aesthetic look are called ankle aesthetics. Ankle procedures are performed to shape the ankle according to the body proportion.
Ankle aesthetics is among the ten most demanded aesthetic procedures by women, while it is rarely requested by men. The foot and leg site, which has an important place in the anatomical structure of the women, are the sites that must not have defects regarding appearance integrity. Although it is not possible to thin the foot bones during the ankle procedures, the fat tissue around the ankle is removed and the ankles are ensured to have a more elegant appearance.
All individuals who think their feet are thick, beginning from the knee region, can gain the appearance they desire with foot aesthetics. Thick ankles directly affect women’s aesthetic concerns. In addition, swelling in the ankle area while wearing shoes or boots and difficulties when walking can cause these interventions to be preferred.
How is Ankle Surgery Performed?
Since the adipose tissue of the patient will be reshaped, the surgeon makes the necessary analyses after listening to the patient’s requests and expectations and prepares the patient for the surgery according to the planned treatment. The duration of ankle cosmetic surgery varies according to the fat ratio of the person and lasts for approximately 1-2 hours. Surgical interventions are inevitable. In this surgery, the following anaesthesia procedures can be administered:
- General anaesthesia if there will be an intervention on the bone structures
- Local anaesthesia if there will be an intervention on the soft tissue and fat tissue alone.
Although the problems of patients with thick bones cannot be solved completely in some cases, the problem can be alleviated considerably. At this point, what results will be obtained at each case reveals only through the examination of the plastic surgeon.
What are the Steps of Ankle Surgery?
Excess fat below the knees is detected during the examination and measurements performed before the surgery. While excess fat is removed with the help of a thin cannula, calf muscles are shaped to have an aesthetic appearance. If deemed necessary by the physician, fat can be added to the necessary parts to ensure more smooth legs.
Thick ankles are often a genetic problem. If there is no slimming in this site despite diet and exercise, cosmetic surgery is the best choice. As with all surgical interventions, there are essential things that the patient must do before foot surgery.
