Why calf augmentation?

Too slender calves is not appealing to many people, especially when they’re out of proportion with the rest of the body. Many people try to improve the fullness of their calves through vigorous exercise, but oftentimes they fail to achieve their desired result this way.

Lowe legs muscles are difficult to sculpt through exercising.

With the advances in plastic and cosmetic surgery, calf enhancement procedures have been around for some time now and people are becoming more and more interested in them. Calf implants have gained widespread popularity, especially among American and Latin American youth.

The main goal of calf augmentation is improving the tone and contour of the lower legs, making them look stronger and more muscular. A calf augmentation procedure can also help in creating symmetry between the two calves in those with one calf smaller because of a sustained injury or muscle atrophy.

After a calf implants procedure of calf augmentation with fat grafting, people will have enhanced self-confidence, especially when wearing shorts or swimsuits. Furthermore, people having calf augmentation with fat transfer will get the excess fat on other parts of the body removed, and thus will get other parts of their body aesthetically enhanced at the same time.

There are two main surgical calf enhancement options: calf implants and fat injection. Both of these procedures are safe and widely performed.

How is calf implants procedure performed?

The calf implants procedure is performed on an outpatient basis in a clinic or hospital. It is done under local or general anesthesia and typically takes 1.5-2 hours to complete, excluding the preparation time and recovery from anesthesia.

After putting the patient to sleep using anesthesia or intravenous sedation, the surgeon makes a horizontal incision (5 cm in length) in the back of your leg (knee pit) and carefully creates a pocket (space) in the calf.

There are two techniques for implant placement: submuscular and subfascial. In the submuscular technique, the pocket is created underneath the muscles of the calf, while in the subfascial calf implant procedure, the pocket is created over the muscle and under the fibrous sheet of tissue called fascia that covers the muscle.

The surgeon then places the implant into the pocket and delicately adjusts the position of the implant to make sure that it looks natural and symmetric. If you want to have a more natural muscular calf, a second smaller implant can be placed next to the main implant. Women usually prefer to get only one implant in their calves. On the other hand, some bodybuilders who want robust and muscular calves opt for two implants in each leg.

After implant placement, the incision is closed and sutured with dissolvable stitches, and tapes and bandages are applied. Your surgeon may recommend that you wear compression stockings for a few weeks. These garments help reduce swelling and support the new contours of the lower legs as they heal.

How is calf augmentation with fat transfer performed?

Just like any other autologous fat grafting procedure, calf augmentation with fat transfer involves extracting fat from other parts of the patient’s own body and injecting it into the target site (calves).

Under local or general anesthesia, a liposuction procedure is carried out to harvest fat from areas where there are excess fat deposits (donor site). After purifying the extracted fat using a centrifuge, it is injected using a cannula into the calves.

The duration of a fat grafting procedure for calf augmentation varies depending on how many donor sites are involved in the procedure and how much fat you need to get into your calves.

Who is a good candidate for calf augmentation surgery?

People with good overall health can be candidates for calf augmentation. For those who want to have calf augmentation with fat transfer, sufficient fat store is a requirement. Be sure to consult with a board-certified plastic surgeon to discuss your desires. The doctor will do a physical examination, review your medical history, and discuss your personal goals to find out whether a calf augmentation with implants or fat grafting is suitable for you.

Calf implant surgery recovery and post-operative care

You will be expected to be able to resume normal activities and return to work in one week, but intense physical activities should be refrain from for 5-6 weeks after surgery.

For the first two weeks, you are recommended to keep the bandages and compression garments prescribed by your doctor. Swelling and bruising will subside gradually and will completely go away within a few weeks. For calf implant patients, walking slowly after a few days will help the legs get used to the implants.

Keep your body well-hydrated by drinking plenty of water during the recovery period. Also, avoid alcohol and smoking for at least three weeks after surgery.

What are common side effects and risks of calf implants?

Calf augmentation with implants or fat transfer is a relatively safe procedure. However, there are potential risks and complications that you should be informed about prior to your decision to go under the knife.

These potential complications are bruising, swelling, loss of sensation, scarring, noticeable implant edges, implant shifting, asymmetry, capsular contracture, infection, nerve and vessel injury, bleeding, and anesthesia-related side effects.

Most of these complications are rare and can be prevented by following your doctor’s instructions. The complication rate for calf augmentation surgery is estimated to be less than 1%, according to the Journal of the American Society of Plastic Surgeons.

Frequently Asked Questions About Calf Augmentation

Calf implants are a near-permanent solution as long as there isn’t a rupture or implant displacement, which requires that you get them replaced.

It is expected that your body adjusts to the implants in some eight weeks. By this time, all the swelling will be gone and the shininess of the skin around the implants will disappear and the implants will settle.

You have to stop smoking and alcohol consumption a few weeks before and after surgery in order to have proper wound healing. You also need to stop blood-thinning medications such as aspirin, and other non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drugs (NSAIDs) like ibuprofen or Naprosyn. Also, keep your body well-hydrated both before and after surgery.

The incisions of a calf implants surgery are very short (4-5 cm) and are made along the crease of the back of your legs. Besides, they will fade after a couple of months, so become barely visible.

You should consider all the pros and cons of the two options before making your mind to undergo one of the procedures. Fat grafting is a less invasive procedure but it’s usually a little more expensive than calf implants. Furthermore, the results of calf implants last longer, but on the other hand, fat transfer doesn’t pose the risks associated with cosmetic implants such as infection, implant displacement, or capsular contracture.

The price of a calf implants procedure in Iran ranges from $1000 to $1400 and the price for a calf augmentation with fat grafting is somewhere between $1200 and $1800.
