Calf augmentation can add natural-looking shape and definition to the calves for a more sculpted lower body. Many patients are not satisfied with the size of their calves, even after consistent exercise; this is because genetics play a large part in determining overall calf shape. At Asaadi Plastic Surgery, we offer calf implants as a long-lasting solution to a lack of calf size. Your calf implants can be customized by shape in order to best complement your individual proportions. Learn more about calf augmentation below.
How Does Calf Augmentation Work?
During calf augmentation, your plastic surgeon will place either 1 or 2 silicone calf implants, depending on your leg size and shape. Incisions are made at the back of your knee and a pocket is created. Your calf implants are then placed into this pocket.
What Can Calf Implants Achieve?
Calf implants can increase calf size while also enhancing calf definition for a more contoured lower body. Calf augmentation is designed to achieve long-lasting results that fit in with your overall profile. Ideal calf implants should add natural-looking size and shape without seeming disproportionate to your thighs or quads.
What Kind Of Downtime Can I Expect?
Calf augmentation patients should expect moderate swelling and bruising to occur for a few weeks following the placement of calf implants. Strenuous activity should be avoided for 1-2 months to allow for optimal healing, but patients can usually return to work and normal walking within 2 weeks.
Who Are Ideal Calf Implant Candidates?
Calf implants are not just for men! Both male and female patients can undergo calf augmentation to accentuate calf size. If you are dissatisfied with the shape of your calves and would like to add natural-looking definition to your legs, then calf implants may be right for you.
