What is Calves Liposuction?
It is a body contouring treatment that aims to reduce the size and improve the contour of the calves by suctioning out excess fat build-up. Calf liposuction is also known as lipoplasty, or liposuction of the lower extremities.
How does it work?
Our surgeon will give you local anaesthesia. After anaesthesia has taken effect, small incisions are made to insert the cannula. The tumescent fluid is infiltrated into the fat area to numb and breaks the fat followed by the suctioning and removal of the fats.
Who is the Ideal Candidate?
The ideal candidate for calves liposuction is a person who has;
- Stubborn, excess fat in calf area.
- Good skin tone and elasticity.
- Good physical, mental and emotional health and should be free from any active diseases or other pre-existing medical conditions.
- Realistic expectations about the results.
Is it painful?
It is done under local anaesthesia, meaning you will be fully awake and given medicine to numb the area to block the pain.
Do lost fats return?
Unfortunately, it is possible for fat to return after liposuction. You need to maintain good exercise and proper diet.
How long do liposuction results last?
The final results of calves liposuction are generally long-lasting if you maintain your weight with diet and exercise.
How long is the recovery?
There will be minimal bruising and swelling for at least 7 days. We advise you to take out the excess fluid at home where we take out the fat and keep your leg elevated to prevent your feet from swelling.
Will there be after care?
You will be given medication for anti-swelling, pain, antibiotic and antibiotic cream for you to apply at the incision site after clean. We suggest you wear a compression garment right after the procedure to push the loose skin to the muscle and to fasten recovery and you would have to return the next day for the dressing and periodical follow-ups.
How much does calves liposuction cost?
Liposuction cost in Malaysia starts from USD1,500 onwards depending on the size of targeted area.
