About calf implants

Calf augmentation is a surgical procedure that utilizes calf implants to create a more defined shape to the lower leg. Many patients desire a fuller or more dominate shape to their calves, which is sometimes not possible through exercise alone. Even professional body builders visit plastic surgeon Dr. Deborah Ekstrom at Salisbury Plastic Surgery for calf augmentation.

Dr. Ekstrom uses modern techniques to minimize downtime as much as possible and to provide patients with natural looking results. During your initial consultation at our Worcester, MA office, Dr. Ekstrom will discuss the procedure process thoroughly and answer any questions you may have. Customized implants are also available to create the specific look you desire

What happens during a calf implants procedure?

Prior to your calf implants surgery, you will undergo a private consultation with Dr. Ekstrom. This is a very important step because it helps you understand the procedure process and learn about the calf implants procedure techniques and options available to you. It is also a great opportunity for you to express any concerns you may have and to ask detailed questions. Once your aesthetic desires are understood, your procedure will be scheduled.

During the calf implant procedure, your surgeon will create an incision behind the knee for an inconspicuous look. Then, your surgeon will create a pocket by separating the skin from the lower leg muscles. The implant will be strategically inserted and the wounds will be sutured. Once the wounds are closed, a bandage will be applied for comfort and safe healing. This process is then repeated to the other side.

Calf implants procedure recovery and results

Typically, a calf augmentation surgery takes about 1 hour to complete. Although you will be free to return to most of your everyday activities within a few days, strenuous activities should be avoided until your calves have properly healed. Symptoms such as, swelling, redness, tenderness, and bruising are very common and expected. However, these symptoms will subside over time. Everyone’s recovery varies, but typically optimal healing will take 6 months. Despite the lengthy recovery time, results are long-lasting and leave you with fuller, more proportionate calves.
