Women with thicker calves sometimes have trouble wearing certain types of footwear, such as boots. This “boot bulge” can make it difficult for women to wear higher boots. Some women who want to be able to pull on a pair of knee-high boots and wear comfortably are having liposculpture done to remove excess fat in their calves.
Liposuction and liposculpture are two cosmetic procedures that are performed tens of thousands of times throughout the year. While similar, these two cosmetic surgeries have a few unique differences. If you are exploring the benefits of either surgery, then it is important that you understand these subtle differences.
