Liposuction to ankles.

Liposuction of the calves and ankles is a little known but very exciting area of body contour surgery.  In today’s culture we are often given the impression that straight legs lacking shape around the ankles are a result of the shape of the bone. In reality this lack of shape around the ankle, commonly referred to as “tree trunk legs” or “cankles”, is most often the result of inherited areas of fat.  Many patients, such as this active 33-year-old woman from Chesapeake, are excellent candidates for a fine-cannula, meticulous approach to lipo-contouring of this area.  Sag and skin laxity is actually less often a problem around the lower leg than with many other common areas of liposuction. Calf and ankle liposuction requires experience and finesse, since the amount of fat being removed is small.   I spend a lot time with each patient carefully planning to ensure accuracy.  Because of this meticulous approach, patients are very pleased with their new contour.

Practice Policy Update Regarding COVID-19

We are excited to announce our reopening as of May 1st. While many things have changed, one thing has remained the same: Our commitment to your safety.

Consultations are available in our office and we will continue to offer Virtual Consultations as well. You will be asked to complete your registration paperwork in our secure patient portal prior to your appointment and your consultation fee will be collected by phone to minimize contact.

Here are a few changes we have made as we transition to this new era:

  • Please reschedule your appointment if you are not feeling well, have a fever, have been exposed to anyone with Covid-19 or travelled internationally within the last month.
  • We will limit the number of people in the building and waiting area to maintain social distancing and our staff will be wearing masks until restrictions are eased.
  • When you arrive for your appointment, please call our office at 757-456-5193 and we will let you know when to come to the door. We ask that you do not bring anyone with you.
  • Please wear a mask during your visit but do not wear gloves. Your temperature will be taken, and a series of questions asked prior to entering the building. You will be given hand sanitizer.
