Male Speaker: Once you've determined that it's fat it can be removed with Liposuction. It actually works pretty well, we make tiny incisions right here around the bones that are prominent in the ankles and we go in with our Liposuction device, obviously staying away from the Achilles Tendon and the Tendon-Soleus. But we go in there and we permanently remove that access fat that is forming in that ankle area, we can sculpt that and contour that to give a nice attractive look to the ankles, because women don't like heavy ankles. Female Speaker: Now but you made a good point, it's not just anybody can do this, because if you get Achilles Tendon or, then you can really have some problems. Male Speaker: I know where it is and I stay away from it. And I want to show you how well this works. I have before and after picture. I want to thank my partner Jake Howard (ph) here in Beverly Hills. This is actually is one of his patients, but gee, that's a significant improvement. Do you see how much volume has been removed? Not only from her calves, but her ankles as well so-called kankles, we have a good solution for those. Now typically you have to expect some swelling little things we do to minimize that, once it heals you don't see the incisions and that fat is permanently gone.
