Bananas for Boots! Liposuction Baltimore
Fall fashions flood the magazine stands this time of year. Vogue, InStyle, Elle – all have their biblically- sized issues preparing us for what to wear this fall. As with past seasons, boots are prominently featured in different styles, lengths, and heights. Unfortunately, wearing boots that come up to the knees or above to the thighs may present a challenge for some women. Thick calves and lack of a clear calf/ankle breakpoint (“cankles”) can limit some women in wearing boots that often don’t allow for different body types. What’s the answer? It may be liposuction. Generally a thicker calf is related to greater localized fat deposition which is often inherited, not acquired. Contouring of the calf can be performed by removing the excess fat under the skin. It’s easy to do. Surgical recovery is minimal, involving necessary compression to minimize bruising and swelling. Leg elevation is also helpful to the healing process. It does take some time to appreciate the final result, but once the initial recovery period is over, patients are mobile and doing things they need to do. Downtime is short!
So if you’re unhappy with “cankles” and are meeting with difficulty in pursuing your passion for boot fashion, consider coming in for consultation to see if you are a good candidate for calf contouring through liposuction at our Baltimore or Lutherville, Maryland Plastic & Cosmetic Surgery Offices.
