As one of the most notorious and popular types of cosmetic surgical procedures out there, everyone and their mom has heard of breast implants. However, did you know that your breast isn’t the only area of your body where we can perform implants? From your calf muscles to your cheeks, this article will discuss three unique types of implants that you may want to consider. Read on to learn more.
Ideal for both males and females, calf implants are used for patients who have particularly small calf muscles but would like larger ones. During this surgical procedure, a small incision is made behind the knee and under the fascia. Once the incision has been made, the implants will be placed to help mimic the natural shape and curvature of the calf muscle. During the 7-10 day recovery, a small drain will be used for the first few days to help with excess fluid. After the drain has been removed, the legs will be wrapped in a mild compression sleeve.
Popular primarily amongst females, butt implants aren’t just something Kim Kardashian wannabes are embracing. By making small incisions under the buttocks, silicone implants are placed under the muscle to help give patients a more voluminous behind. Directly after surgery, patients will have drains to get rid of excess fluid and will also be required to wear compression garments for a full month.
Whether you have lost volume in your face due to old age or weight loss, or if you just have always wanted to add more contour to your cheeks, you may want to consider getting cheek implants. By surgically placing hard, silicone implants over your cheek bones, your doctor can add more depth to your overall facial structure.
