Cankles are common problem areas, especially for some women who store more fat around the ankles and calves than men. A well-balanced diet and regular exercise routine helps reduce body fat including excess fat in the calves area. For many women, stubborn fat remains despite exercise. VASER liposuction is highly effective for treating these areas, reducing fat and tightening skin at the same time.
What is VASER Lipo?
VASER Lipo is a minimally invasive means of liposuction, performed without the use of sedation or general anesthetic. During the procedure you are awake and lucid, and recovery time is extremely quick. The results of VASER show more artistic sculpting of both small areas such as the chin and arms, and large areas such as the tummy.
Why consider VASER Liposuction for cankles?
VASER Lipo is an advanced, highly efficient and specialized cosmetic procedure, of which Dr. Prendergast is an international pioneer. Compared to traditional liposuction, VASER typically offers a quicker recovery, less swelling and bruising, and it is associated with smooth results, and superior skin tightening compared to old-fashioned liposuction techniques. The VASER method allows for more specific destruction of fat cells and limited injury to all other tissues. It also avoids the potential risks of general anaesthesia, since Dr Prendergast is an expert in performing the procedure purely under tumescent local anaesthesia.

How is the VASER Lipo procedure performed?
1.Infiltration: slowly passing the diluted anaesthetic solution into the fat through tiny incisions using special cannulas or sprinklers
2.Emulsification: once the areas are completely numb, the fat is liquefied using special fine VASER probes. These probes emit ultrasound waves, efficiently breaking down the fat whilst preserving other tissues such as blood vessels and nerves. Contouring the body in this way requires an artful eye and delicate, graceful movements of the probe.
3.Aspiration: Once the fat has been emulsified, it can be easily extracted through gentle suction.
How long is the recovery period?
Immediately after the procedure you will be guided into our relaxation and recovery room, where our attentive and courteous staff will care for you. When you feel ready, you may be collected by a family member or friend.
You may be a little sore and tender the next day. There may or may not be some bruising. These are all perfectly normal signs of the body’s recovery process and temporary. Patients universally report an extremely fast recovery time, and clear results are visible within about ten days.
It is very important that you adhere to the after-care protocol, which will be explained to you in advance. This involves the wearing of surgical compression garments for four weeks; the garment ensures your skin tightens smoothly over your new contours. It also provides comfort and helps minimise swelling.
