For individuals who are unsatisfied with the appearance, or inability to properly develop, calf muscles, a calf augmentation is a reliable solution for achieving a shaplier and stronger calf muscle.
What is a Calf Augmentation?
A calf augmentation is a personalized procedure that is designed to effectively help patients achieve the aesthetic appearance of their lower leg region. It is an innovative solution that safely and effectively delivers a specialized implant beneath the skin in the calf region. This is successful at providing enhanced definition, as well as fullness for those who struggle with developing muscle mass in this region. Following a thorough consultation, a specified size and shape of silicone implant is decided to best meet your needs and aesthetic desires for ultimate results.
To begin the process, legs must first be measured in order to identify the best implant dimensions. During the actual procedure, a slight incision is gently made in the fascia region of the fibrous tissue. This is the outer area that covers the calf region. A specialized method is then used to successfully create a pocket between the tissue and the muscle. This pocket is sized based on the specific implant dimensions. The silicone implant can then be gently inserted into the pocket and the surrounding area is then shaped and smoothed for a natural and defined look. The incisions are then gently closed using stitches. Over time, the stitches dissolve for minimal scarring, and you can then enjoy the full result of muscular and defined calves.
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 that includes using crutches during the week following your treatment to allow your new calves to properly heal. Your legs should remain elevated when lying or sitting to reduce swelling. A specialized at-home stretching regimen is also provided 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.
