Calf Augmentation is a surgery in which a physician adds calf implants into the lower legs - the implants are made from soft, solid silicone and designed to enhance the calf by filling the space over the gastrocnemius muscles. One or two implants may be inserted depending on desired results. Sterile calf implants are inserted through incisions made in the crease behind the knee. Calf Augmentation is a serious surgery that may be used for cosmetic and genetic reasons but the surgery requires both expertise from the physician and a significant amount of downtime for the patient - most patients are able to return to old physical activity within four to six weeks.Request a Consultation
