You’ve heard of breast implants and butt implants, but have you ever heard of calf implants? Calf implants are a safe and efficient manner to give both men and women, fuller, more sculpted looking calves. By surgically implanting small, silicone implants beneath the muscle, patients get visibly larger calves that are worth showing off. Does this surgery sound like something you’re interested in? Read on to learn more.
It’s FDA Approved
Before undergoing any surgery, it’s important to know the ins and outs of it— specifically, whether it’s safe or not. Luckily, one of the greatest benefits of calf implants is the fact that it is an FDA approved procedure— meaning that you can feel 100% safe about it. And, because Dr. Gregory Wiener has years of experience performing this type of surgery, you know that you are in good hands.
The Recovery Is Fairly Extensive
Just like with any surgical procedure, the recovery is a lot more grueling than the surgery itself. Once you are out of surgery, a small plastic drain will be used to help drain any excess fluid. For several days following surgery, your legs will be placed in a mild compressive wrap to help deal with swelling and to keep the implants in place. Patients usually return to work following a calf implant surgery about 7-10 days afterward and continue participating in an exercise about 4-6 weeks later.
The Results Are Real
When it comes to certain operations, some patients look that their results and can’t even tell they had surgery in the first place. Luckily, with calf implants, you will see visible results that look natural. By adding to your existing muscle, calf implants will enhance your existing leg shape.
Calf implants are a unique way to give you that extra volume and shape of calves that you have always wanted. To learn more about this procedure or to schedule a consultation, contact Dr. Gregory Wiener.
Calf Implants are a good option for both men and women who have naturally small calves but would like a fuller, more sculpted look in this area. FDA approved, these silicone gel implants can also benefit patients who have congenital deformities or have experienced calf injuries.
The implants are placed through a small incision behind the knee and beneath the fascia, which is a thick covering over the muscle. In many cases, two implants are placed in each leg to mimic the natural shape of the calf muscle. A small plastic drain may be used and will be in place for several days. The legs are then placed in a mildly compressive wrap for several days after surgery. Patients usually return to work in 7-10 days. More strenuous activities should be avoided for 4-6 weeks.
