Your surgeon may discuss the pros and cons of various other alternatives as well, such as regular exercise, lower body muscle training, and calf augmentation with fat grafting.

  • Implant material (solid silicone implants or silicone gel implants)
  • Implant size

  • 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.

The cosmetic surgeon will then suture the incision and wrap the area in compression garment. You would be required to wear this for the first 7 – 10 days after the surgery. You would be sent home after the surgery since this is an outpatient procedure.
