Liposuction: Liposuction is a technique to reduce the fat pockets around the lateral outside ankle. See a plastic surgeon for advice.

Liposuction.: For certain patients, liposuction surgery may be effective in reducing ankles/calf size. However, there are important structures traversing these tight areas; careful consideration to pros/cons as well as potential risk/complications should be given before undertaking this type of surgery. I hope this helps.
