Dr. Mark P. Solomon is a highly experienced plasltic surgeon who has been practicing the art and science of plastic surgery for more than 25 years. His goal has, and continues to be, to help patients achieve optimal health and confidence. For individuals who are dissatisfied with the appearance of their calf muscles, or are frustrated by inability to properly develop their calf muscles with exercise, calf augmentation surgery is a reliable solution for achieving a shapelier calf muscle.
What is a Calf Augmentation?
Calf augmentation is a personalized procedure that is designed to effectively help patients achieve the aesthetic appearance of their lower leg. This innovative solution safely and effectively delivers a customized implant beneath the skin in the calf region. This creates enhanced definition and fullness for those who struggle with developing muscle mass in their lower legs despite exercise. Following a thorough consultation, a specified size and shape of silicone implant is chosen to best meet your needs and aesthetic goals for the optimal results.
To begin the process, legs must first be measured in order to identify the appropriate implant dimensions. During the actual procedure, an incision is gently made in the crease behind your knee. A pocket is carefully created between the skin and your calf muscles. This pocket is sized based on the predetermined, specific implant dimensions. The silicone implant is then gently inserted into the pocket while the surrounding area is then shaped for a natural and more defined look. The incisions are then gently closed using stitches that dissolve over time. Procedure Details
Calf Augmentation procedures are performed under general anesthesia for optimal patient comfort. The duration of the procedure typically lasts about 1 hour per leg. Following surgery, there is a short recovery time. Your legs should remain elevated when lying or sitting to reduce swelling. A specialized at-home stretching regimen is advised to ensure the best healing process possible, and help your legs adjust to your new calves. Following recovery, your newly shaped calves can be visible for enhanced appearance and definition.
