Laser liposuction is a new modern technique that is aimed at shortening the recovery time of the liposuction procedure. Usually, the patient is well enough to head home the same day of the procedure and get back to their normal routine in a few weeks. Laser liposuction facilitates fat removal on the legs leaving barely visible marks owing to the smaller incisions and modern cannulas used during surgery. A cannula refers to the pointy instruments surgeons use to remove fat.
The table below illustrates who would make a good candidate or poor candidate for leg liposuction.
No serious health conditions
Good BMI of 25 to 29
Poor quality skin
Suffers from DVT or other equally serious health conditions
Obese or overweight

Usually, ankle liposuction is done in conjunction with other liposuction procedures in the surrounding areas to give the patient a complete and uniform look. Combination procedures often performed along with ankle liposuction include:
Genetics are mainly to blame for large calves. For body builders, athletes and active people alike, calves are problematic areas where fat accumulates. Even with extensive workout sessions stretched over a period of time the fat deposits in the calves just won’t budge. For that uniform, firm look, calf liposuction surgery is your best bet.
The calf is that part of the leg right below the back of the knee and a few inches above the ankles. Laser liposuction guarantees seamless fat removal that is consistent and without irregularities. Using this technique, calf liposuction recovery is outstandingly quick because the procedure uses smaller incisions, modern equipment that is minimally invasive.
The table below shows risks and benefits that come with having calf liposuction.
