What is calf liposuction?

Say goodbye to thick calves and undefined ankles with calf liposculpture, an aesthetic surgery technique in Turkey.

More than a simple liposuction, calf liposculpture requires greater expertise and precision on the part of the surgeon. Under local anesthesia, fine cannulas are used to perform precise movements that meticulously sculpt the profile of your calves.

What causes fat calves?

There are three main causes of "fat" calves:

  • Highly developed muscles: Some people are inherently more muscular than others. The long muscles that run down to the ankles contribute to the voluminous appearance, even in the absence of fat. Unfortunately, it's not usually possible to reduce them significantly with targeted exercise.
  • Excess fat: Like other parts of the body, the calves can be subject to fat deposits. In this case, liposuction is an excellent treatment option.
  • Chronic edema: Swelling of the legs, often accompanied by a feeling of heaviness, can be a sign of chronic edema. This can be venous (venous insufficiency) or lymphatic (lymphedema) in origin. A precise diagnosis of the cause of the edema is essential to receive appropriate treatment (venotonic drugs, lymphatic drainage, etc.).

Indications for calf liposuction

Thick, unsightly calves or spindle-shaped legs - these morphological imperfections can be a real complex for both men and women.

Calf liposuction is intended for people with localized fat deposits in the calves that are resistant to diet and exercise.

In addition to its aesthetic benefits, calf liposuction can also alleviate certain health problems, such as :

  • Circulatory problems.
  • Feeling of heavy legs.
  • Muscular fatigue.

Reduce calves with botulinum toxin in Türkiye

Among the various calf reduction techniques available, one stands out for its originality compared to many others. These are botulinum toxin infiltrations, which are used to correct muscular hypertrophy in various parts of the body, including the calves. Botulinum toxin works by weakening the calf muscle through partial peripheral paralysis of the nerve fibers in the injection zone, stretching the skin area and creating a slimming effect on the calves.

The procedure lasts between 1.30 and 2 hours and does not require anesthesia, hospitalization, or a long recovery period. Immediately after the treatment, it is possible to resume normal daily activities and the results will become increasingly visible within 15 days. It is important to avoid massaging the treated area for at least 4 hours and to avoid any physical activity for one week.

Botulinum injections for calf reduction have no major side effects, although you may experience some discomfort when walking for 24 hours after treatment. 

The big advantage is that there is no scarring and no long postoperative recovery period compared to the surgical technique. The disadvantage is that the result is not permanent, so you'll need to repeat the injections every 8–12 months to maintain the effect.

Preparation for surgery and post-operative recovery in Turkey

Before undergoing calf reduction surgeryin Türkiye, the patient will have to carry out preoperative tests to determine whether he is fit to undergo this type of surgery.

Once the surgery is completed, a compression knee-high stocking should be worn, very similar to a regular sock, which should be worn both night and day for at least 1 week.

After this week of the postoperative period, you will be able to resume your daily habits by always following the instructions of your surgeon.

The patient must be hospitalized the first night in one of our best clinics in Turkey. Thus, he carries out checks in the specialist's office to change the dressing or learn to perform specific maneuvers (massages, stretching) to be carried out after the intervention.

Calf reduction surgery results

Calf liposuction has proven to be a highly effective technique for sculpting slender, shapely calves.

Although it takes several months (between 3 and 6) for the edema to completely disappear and the skin to permanently shrink, the result is well worth the effort: slender legs and a harmonious silhouette.

Final scar assessment takes time. We recommend that you wait at least 12 months to fully appreciate the results.

Your satisfaction is our priority. That's why post-operative follow-up visits are systematically scheduled to ensure that the healing process is going smoothly and that you are completely satisfied.

Complications & risks

If you're considering calf liposuction, it's important to understand the risks associated with the procedure. Although complications are rare, they can occur even with a highly skilled plastic and cosmetic surgeon.

Complications associated with calf liposuction may include changes in sensitivity, such as numbness, hypersensitivity, or strange sensations in the operated area. However, these changes are usually temporary and tend to disappear after a few months.

Other complications may include inadequate corrections and asymmetries that may require repeat surgery. Excessive corrections, depressions, surface irregularities, the uneven appearance of bumps and ripples, sagging skin, and worsening of the "orange peel" phenomenon may also occur.

In addition, the skin may not retract smoothly after liposuction and may show excessive wrinkling. Although rare, fat embolism is another possible complication.
