Candidates for Calf Implants

This surgery is suitable for both men and women who are unhappy with the physical appearance of their calf. This may include people with calf deformity due to injury, illness or disability.

Other candidates for calf implant surgery are people in good health who work out excessively without seeing any noticeable improvement in their leg muscle.

Should you consider calf implant surgery then it is important to have a realistic expectation with no pre-existing medical condition that may negatively impact surgery or the recovery process.

Calf Implants Procedure

The surgery is done on an out-patients basis, under anesthesia and can take up to 90 minutes to complete. Your surgeon will use a surgical marker to outline the site of incision. Thereafter they will:

  • Make an incision into the calf.
  • Insert the silicone implants.
  • Stitch the skin back together.
  • Place compression bandages on the incision area.

Recovery

It is important to follow your surgeon’s post-surgery instructions with great care. This will aid in a smooth recovery and optimal healing after your calf implant surgery. Your surgeon’s care instructions may include:

  • How to care for your surgical site.
  • How to apply topical medication or take medication orally.
  • Concerns to look out for.
  • When to follow up with your surgeon.

It is expected for you to avoid exercise and to stay off your feet for at least two weeks. Therefore, it is expected for you to book some time off work.

Bruising and inflammation will slowly subside and disappear after a couple of weeks.
