What is Calf Augmentation?

Calf implants, also known as calf augmentation, helps improve the contour of the lower leg by creating a suitable balance between the upper and lower leg, and a firm and shapely appearance for individuals who lack calf muscles or want to enhance the outline in their lower legs.

 

Calf implants are also a great solution for people who are bow-legged. In this case, the implants are placed in the inner portion of the lower leg.

 

A Good Candidate for Calf Augmentation

The minimum age requirement for this procedure is 18. It is important that the muscles are fully developed before deciding to undergo the calf augmentation operation.

 

Calf Augmentation Procedure

The first step is a detailed consultation with your surgeon, who will determine the best method that will achieve your desired end results. You doctor will determine whether or not your procedure should be outpatient or inpatient. Calf Implant Surgery is a muscle augmentation procedure. Incisions are made behind the knees for less visibility.

 

Pockets are formed where the silicone implants will be placed. Depending on your desired results and the current shape of your lower leg, an implant will be placed either on the inside, the outside, or both sides of each leg, over your pre-existing calf muscle.

 

The incisions are closed up with dissolving or removable stitches, in which case you may or may not have to return to your hospital or clinic for a follow-up visit to have your stitches removed.

 

Average Duration of Calf Implant Surgery: 1-2 hours
