How Much Does Calf Augmentation Cost?

How Much Does Calf Augmentation Cost?

Calf Augmentation 

Calf augmentation cosmetic surgery helps in adding contour and body to the lower legs. Your surgeon will discuss various aspects of the surgery during the initial consultation. They will also discuss estimated costs. Responsible cosmetic surgeons consider it a priority to help patients make a well-considered decision based on their budget and personal needs.

Calf augmentation may not be covered by your health insurance since it is usually an elective cosmetic procedure. You will have access to various financing options, though. These options can help you pay for the plastic surgery in convenient and affordable monthly installments.

Board certified plastic surgeon Dr. Matthias Solomon provides calf augmentation surgery to patients in Dallas, Frisco, Sherman, Texas, and surrounding communities.

Extent of the Procedure Plays a Major Role

Calf augmentation surgery involves inserting silicone implants within the contours of your lower legs for enhancing their balance and appearance. Your surgeon may require sculpting the implant to match your body contour. You may be able to keep the costs down by having the procedure performed under local anesthesia and a mild intravenous sedative.

However, your surgeon will make the call whether to use local or general anesthesia. There will be an added fee of anesthesiologist or a registered nurse anesthetist in case you need monitored anesthesia care (MAC). General anesthesia is unavoidable if you are getting multiple procedures performed in conjunction, such as a thigh lift or getting dual layers of implants placed for more dramatic results.

It is important to note that combined procedures end up being more cost-effective in the long run since you don’t need to pay the surgery center costs, surgeon’s fee or anesthesiologist’s fee multiple times.

Cost also depends on the Surgeon’s Fee

Experienced and qualified plastic surgeons may charge more than less trained or new surgeons. Board certified plastic surgeons are usually recommended for any cosmetic surgery since they invest in cutting-edge surgical technology, adopt quality standards and continue pursuing higher education. They also tend to follow the latest safety protocols.

However, no reputable cosmetic surgeon will compromise on the quality of surgery or care to reduce the overhead cost. It is recommended by the American Society of Plastic Surgeons (ASPS) to choose a surgeon that can best accomplish your goals. Surgeon’s fee should not be a priority over your safety.

Location of the Practice Can Impact Overall Costs

Surgeries performed in metropolitan cities are costlier than the ones performed in sparsely populated interior towns. Real estate and other costs influence the cost of medical procedures. You should consider the difference in procedure costs at different locations and facilities before taking a decision.

Consider Financing Options

You should not be deterred from getting the calf augmentation surgery you want because of a shortage of ready funds. There are many financing options that can make it easy for you to pay for the procedure. You can easily acquire a loan from third party medical care financing companies at competitive rates.

Dermal Fillers (Juvéderm®, Voluma®, Restylane®, Radiesse®, Belotero®)

Dermal Fillers

It may seem daunting to choose the right injectable filler options with an extensive range of fillers on the menu today. However, the wide array of dermal filler options available is great news for new patients hoping to regain their youthful appearance.

Your facial injection provider shall discuss the density, intended depth and texture of different filler options while recommending one that will work best for you. Board certified plastic surgeon Dr. Matthias Solomon provides dermal filler injections to patients in Dallas, Frisco, Sherman, Texas, and surrounding locations.

Hyaluronic Acid Dermal Fillers

Most popular dermal fillers contain hyaluronic acid (HA). According to the American Society of Plastic Surgeon (ASPS) HA dermal fillers are the most sought-after procedures and many experts recommend it because the substance is naturally compatible with the human body.

HA is found naturally in the skin cells and is responsible for transferring essential nutrients in the bloodstream to the skin. HA helps in restoring elasticity and volume while plumping and hydrating the skin.

Dermal fillers containing HA are generally soft and gel-like in texture. The results of these injectables are temporary because the substance is biocompatible and gets absorbed within the tissue. However, most patients experience results lasting 6 – 12 months.

Types of FDA-Approved HA Dermal Fillers

These fillers are approved by the FDA:

  • Restylane
  • Restylane Silk
  • Juvederm
  • Voluma
  • Radiesse
  • Belotero

Radiesse – Calcium Hydroxylapatite Dermal Filler

According to the ASPS, calcium hydroxylapatite (CaHa) is among the densest dermal fillers. CaHa is similar to HA and occurs naturally in the body. However, unlike HA, CaHa is a mineral like substance and is found primarily in the human bones.

Radiesse comprises of small particles of CaHa suspended in a smooth gel. The texture of this dermal filler is thicker than the ones containing HA. This allows Radiesse to offer more sustainable results. CaHa gets naturally absorbed by the body too. However, most patients will notice a marked difference in their fine lines and wrinkle after Radiesse treatment. The results last longer too, for up to 12 – 18 months.

Radiesse is among the most popular CaHa fillers to be FDA-approved and can be used on nasolabial folds and frown lines. It can also be used to sculpt the nose, chin, cheeks, or jawline.

Juvederm Voluma – Anti Aging Filler

Some people tend to lose more volume from their cheek or mid-face area as a result of aging. This can cause their cheeks to appear sunken with loose or thinning skin. Juvederm Voluma filler is designed specifically to restore volume in the cheeks. This FDA-approved anti-aging dermal filler can create a rounder, fuller, and youthful looking facial appearance.

Vycross technology is used to create the smooth and consistent Juvederm Voluma filler. The silky consistency of the gel offers smoother facial appearance. Juvederm Voluma offers long-lasting results with higher concentrations of HA. The results stay up to 24 months in most patients with this treatment.

Pre-Operative Consultation

  • Implant material (solid silicone implants or silicone gel implants)
  • Implant size
  • Implant location (lateral or medial calves)
  • Implant placement (or between the fascia tissue and the gastrocnemius muscle or under the gastrocnemius muscle)
  • Incision location

Calf Implant Surgery Procedure

The surgeon will administer general anesthesia and make a small incision to begin the procedure. The incision is typically made on the back of the knee. This incision will be used to insert the implant under the gastrocnemius muscle or between the fascia tissue and the gastrocnemius muscle.
