Calf Augmentation Procedure for More Pronounced Legs
Dr. Martin can perform calf augmentation procedures that allow patients’ legs to look more sculpted and more proportional for your lower body. Individuals often choose this operation if exercise isn’t enough to give them prominent calves.
About the Procedure
Realistically, exercise doesn’t always trump genetics. Those who are unable to achieve pronounced legs have a great choice—calf augmentation. It allows for lower legs to look more symmetrical, proportional and healthy. Some people have naturally small calves and no amount of rigorous fitness training will add desired size and definition to their legs. In this procedure, an incision will be made in the crease behind the knee and a solid silicone implant is then placed between the muscle and the fascia. This can involve using one or two implants in each calf.
Most patients can return to work in about a week. Patients usually require crutches for the first five to seven days after surgery. In seven to ten days, patients can return to the gym for light exercises such as treadmill walking, elliptical training and stationary cycling. All normal activities may be resumed within six weeks.
