Leg, calf & ankle liposuction in Melbourne

The distribution and amount of fat on a woman’s legs are partially predetermined by genetics. Therefore, for some individuals, diet or exercise is not enough to significantly change the shape of the legs.

If you would like to change the shape of your lower legs, talk to Dr Feldman in her South Yarra clinic. As a female cosmetic physician, Joni is very approachable, with many Melbourne women feel comfortable talking to her.

Lower leg liposuction: the procedure

Your liposuction procedure will be performed in her registered day procedure centre in South Yarra, under local anaesthetic. You’ll be given a  sedative to relax you. With lower leg liposuction, some women are left with prolonged swelling, so the procedure is best performed in the winter months, where you can comfortably wear the required compression pantyhose for at least six weeks.

After the procedure

After the procedure, you will be given compression bandages to help control the swelling. You’ll be encouraged to walk gently during the first few days following the surgery to encourage drainage and minimise any swelling.

Potential liposuction risks

All surgery carries risks. It is essential you understand all the risks involved with liposuction to make an informed decision before proceeding.

Complications associated with liposuction may include asymmetry, skin rippling, excessive loose skin, poor scarring, abnormal skin pigmentation, bleeding, infection, seroma formation (fluid accumulation under the skin), deep vein thrombosis, cardiac and pulmonary complications, swelling, poor wound healing, bruising, and a potential need for revision surgery. Dr Feldman will discuss all potential surgical risks with you at your initial consultation. She will be happy to address any concerns or questions so that you are fully informed before proceeding with your surgery.
