Calf AugmentationBoth men and women want better defined and aesthetically pleasing and most of all. This is especially true of people who have thin extremities and can't increase the diameter in the calf zone with exercise. There are several implant designs that can be inserted into their legs. The implants are chosen using the following parameters: the patient's gender, height, and the leg volume they are looking for. During consultations, I make sure that the right implant is chosen to give the patient's legs a natural appearance.
The ProcedureFour-centimeter incisions are made on the back of the knee to keep them hidden. Then I insert the implant between the muscle and the skin. Next, I carefully stich up the incisions so the scars remain thin and hidden in the fold of the leg. Lastly, I cover the area with a bandage.
The procedure takes about one hour, and I can use general or local anesthesia. However, the procedure can take if a calf reconstruction is needed. The recovery time is three days. A month later, the patient must follow several instructions before beginning to exercise again.
This procedure is also known as twin augmentation implants, which are semi-solid, spindle-shaped, malleable implants. In other words, they adapt themselves to the shape of the muscle, so the leg looks natural.
After the surgery, you must follow my directions word for word:
- Remain face up and keep your legs slightly elevated using pillows. Lower your legs periodically and then lift them again.
- During the first 48 hours, only walk when it is absolutely necessary, such as going to the bathroom, and walk slowly.
- Keep the bandage on until the first follow-up appointment. Then you can begin the hygiene of the wound under my indications.
