Lower Leg or Calf Liposuction Procedure
For women, one of the biggest complaints that they have about their bodies revolves around their legs. Legs are one of the most fetishized parts of a female's body and are also the part of the body that women are least able to control. The idealized image of legs is long and curvaceous and is also the part of the body that is most often exposed. This means that women with legs that have thick calves often feel ashamed about that part of the body.
Calf liposuction surgery or lower leg liposuction surgery is a procedure designed to remove excess fat that is stored in a patient's calf.
