Millions have tried, but still, no one has found an easy way to get rid of “cankles.” Though very common, cankles — the informal term for poorly defined ankles that are nearly or completely indiscernible from the calf — can be embarrassing to both men and women. For many patients around Newport Beach, cankles make them feel too self-conscious to wear certain clothes or footwear. But thanks to Dr. Dubrow you don’t have to spend the rest of your life hiding your feet and legs.

Dr. Dubrow has developed one of Orange County’s top cankle reduction procedures that uses liposuction to give you lovely, natural looking ankles. Due to the sensitivity of the area, cankle surgery is a highly delicate procedure offered only by the most experienced surgeons. Throughout his years as a board-certified plastic surgeon with the American Board of Plastic Surgery (ABPS), Dr. Dubrow has performed countless successful cankle operations throughout Newport Beach, Orange County and Southern California.

Cankles: Causes and Cures

Safely getting rid of cankles through surgery requires careful consultation with a highly qualified plastic surgeon. Before receiving a cankle treatment, you’ll discuss the likely causes of cankles and the best way to improve your condition. Cankles can result from:

  • Excess fat
  • Your natural bone structure
  • Muscular calves
  • Swelling caused by a medical condition (edema)
  • Genetics

Because each case is different, Dr. Dubrow will recommend the safest most effective treatment options for you. With excess fat in the ankles, carefully targeted liposuction (“lipoplasty”) around your calves and ankles consistently produces excellent results. Cankle removal on patients with vascular problems, venous deficiency or chronic edema should be performed with the utmost care and caution. At our practice, we feel it’s incredibly important that each patient understands the risks, therefore we encourage you to come in and speak with us face to face before making a decision.
