Lower leg implant cosmetic surgery or calf augmentation surgery involves inserting silicone implants within the natural contours of the lower legs to enhance their size and definition. Your cosmetic surgeon will walk you through the procedure and understand your goals to determine whether you are a suitable candidate for the procedure.
Feel free to ask questions about the procedure as well as the surgeon’s background during your initial consultation so that you can make an informed choice. Board certified plastic surgeon Dr. Matthias Solomon provides calf augmentation surgery to patients in Dallas, Frisco, Sherman, Texas, and surrounding communities.
Ideal Candidacy for Calf Augmentation
Calf augmentation is recommended for people who want to address their lower body imbalance or correct a physical deformity as a result of an illness or an injury. Athletes and body builders that want to have larger and more muscular looking lower legs may also benefit from this surgery. Calf enhancement has emerged as a popular plastic surgery for those looking for sleeker, stronger and muscular appearing legs.
What Is Involved in the Surgical Procedure?
The plastic surgeon will create tiny incisions in the back of the knee. A pocket will be carved out from the calf muscle using this incision to accommodate the implant. The surgeon may require inserting two layers of implants depending on your aesthetic needs.
Both the implants will be placed and positioned before the surgeon closes the incisions with sutures. Natural scar tissue formation will make sure the implants stay in place after the surgery. Calf implants are usually secured without any problem for years.
Calf enhancement cosmetic surgery is generally performed as an outpatient procedure. It usually gets completed in less than two hours. Your cosmetic surgeon may perform the surgery using mild sedation and local anesthesia if the surgery is straightforward. For extensive or combined procedures, patients are administered general anesthesia.
Benefits of Calf Augmentation
It can be difficult to accomplish sculpted and defined lower legs through diet and exercise alone. Calf augmentation plastic surgery allows you to dramatically improve the appearance and shape of your calves with long lasting and quick results. Skilled plastic surgeons can help you achieve natural looking prominent lower legs for a more balanced and athletic figure.
Calf augmentation can go a long way in enhancing the overall body symmetry along with creating toned and shapely lower legs. You can confidently wear calf revealing clothes, such as shorts and swimsuits. The surgery involves low risk of side-effects and complications. You should expect great results as long as you choose an experienced and skilled plastic surgeon to work with.
Post-operative Recovery Period
Most patients resume their normal routine within 7 – 10 days following the calf augmentation procedure. You may need to use crutches during this initial period to allow your incisions to heal properly. Athletes and body builders can resume their exercise routine after 6 – 8 weeks.
Patients are generally pleased with the outcome of their calf augmentation procedure. They enjoy a stronger and well-balanced lower body. Cosmetic surgeon Dr. Matthias Solomon receives patients from Dallas, Frisco, Sherman, Texas, and nearby areas for calf augmentation surgery.
