Why should I get calf implants?
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.
Calf Implants Procedure
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.
