If thick calves are caused by excessive accumulation of fat, liposuction can help to reshape them.
More commonly, however, the underlying cause of thicker calves is genetically overdeveloped gastrocnemius muscles.
While effective on the legs of plump Westerners, liposuction is only minimally helpful in removing bulk from the legs of Asians since muscle rather than fat accounts for their excess.
In most cases, either muscle resection or botinulum toxin injections are necessary.
