Before I chose Dr. Luis A. Picard-Ami, Jr. in Panama City, Panama, I researched multiple aesthetic surgeons and simply could not find a surgeon as accomplished. My husband and I have had an outstanding experience and we highly recommend him; his skillfulness and expertise are irrefutable. For months, I communicated with him by email and he used his valuable time to thoroughly, thoughtfully and punctually answer every question. We followed up with simple pictures taken on our phones and he offered his recommendations, our options, detailed cost estimates, basic procedural guidance and aftercare information. He never sold us on additional procedures or products. Additionally, what endeared me to Dr. Picard-Ami was that he helped me to focus on how important realistic result expectations are. He has incredible attention to detail. My husband and I are now in our fifth week of healing and the results so far are completely natural and genuine even though our procedures were quite different. I am thrilled! Also, please know that the costs ended up exactly as quoted and were 30% lower than our U. S. quotes. Dr. Picard-Ami’s manner is warm, compassionate and gentle. His nurse and administrative assistant are also competent, caring and welcoming; they coordinate everything concerning surgical care and follow-up. I want to also share that he is the only surgeon we spoke with who recommended physical therapy following the surgery and we believe the ultrasound sessions facilitated our healing. His office is conveniently located in the Punta Pacifica Hospital as is the aftercare. Next week, we are to follow up with him by email with photos of our progress, and we are seeing steady improvement each day. We’ve had no complications to speak of and no regrets to date. I know we chose the best surgeon with the most caring staff and we simply loved visiting Panama. Please know that you can trust Dr. Picard-Ami; he exceeded our expectations and I know he will surpass yours too. RDS

"As a couple, my husband and I decided to have facial enhancement surgery. Several years ago, I had a wonderful experience with Dr. Picard-Ami, trusting him with this made sense. Our challenges leaving the USA for this major event made us anxious because we speak limited Spanish and have hearing impairment issues. Dr. Picard-Ami and his associates clearly understood these issues and took great care to walk us through each part of the process. We followed all recommended after care treatments and instructions and are currently moving though the healing process nicely and are thrilled with the results. Dr. Picard-Ami is truly an accomplished surgeon and outstanding man. We, absolutely, selected the right surgeon for this life chaining event"

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
