As a female, it can be said that the thinner your body is, the better, but because not everyone is born with a naturally thin frame, it’s sometimes something that’s more of a dream than a reality. If you have larger calf muscles on your legs but want leaner ones, you may be wondering, “Is there a surgery that can make my calves look smaller?” From liposuction to CoolSculpting, this article will discuss a few methods that we can use to get your calves thinner in no time. Read on to learn more.
Liposuction can be done on virtually every part of your body— including your calves. Depending on how much excess fat there on your calves will help our surgeons determine if liposuction is a viable option for you. If it is, then one of our surgeons will make a small incision typically in the back of your leg, scrape off additional fat, and suction it out with a device called a cannula.
CoolSculpting is likely going to be a better option at getting rid of excess unwanted fat around your calf muscles. As a non-invasive procedure, CoolSculpting can freeze off your fat without us ever having to make an incision. CoolSculpting freezes individual fat cells on your legs which are then naturally excreted by your body a few months later on down the line— leaving you with slimmer calves in the process.
If your calves are muscular and you don’t have a lot of fat to lose, they may be bigger due to genetics which makes them harder for us to modify. However, schedule a consultation appointment with our office, and we can look into all of your options. To learn more, contact Twin City Plastic Surgery today!
