Calf implant surgery, also known as calf augmentation, is traditionally a male cosmetic procedure designed to enhance the size and shape of the calves through the insertion of silicone implants. However, men, women, and non-binary individuals alike can undergo calf implant surgery. This surgical intervention aims to address issues such as naturally underdeveloped calf muscles, asymmetry, or a desire for more muscular definition in the lower leg area. The procedure involves making small incisions in inconspicuous areas of the calf, creating pockets for the implants, and then carefully placing the silicone implants in the subfascial layer of the calf muscle.
Individuals who might consider calf implant surgery often include those who are dissatisfied with the appearance of their calves due to genetic factors or limitations in muscle growth despite vigorous exercise routines. People who have experienced trauma, congenital conditions, or muscular imbalances that have led to disproportionately small or asymmetrical calf muscles might also seek this procedure. Moreover, bodybuilders and fitness enthusiasts who aim to achieve a more balanced and defined physique may consider calf implant surgery to complement their overall muscular development. Good candidates for calf implant surgery are generally healthy individuals who have realistic expectations about the outcome of the procedure. Overall, calf implant surgery can provide individuals with a means to achieve the desired calf muscle appearance that may be otherwise challenging to attain through traditional exercise and natural development. Calf implant surgery can be combined with other surgical procedures such as liposuction, butt lift, or thigh lift to achieve the enhanced full-body results you’ve always imagined.
Calf implant surgery is aimed at enhancing the size and shape of the calf muscles using silicone implants. Prior to surgery, the patient undergoes a thorough consultation with Dr. Ortiz to discuss their aesthetic goals, medical history, and any questions or concerns. The first step of calf implants surgery is to administer anesthesia in order to ensure the patient's comfort throughout the procedure. The surgery begins with Dr. Ortiz making small incisions in inconspicuous areas of the calf, such as the natural crease behind the knee. These incisions provide access to the location where the implants will be placed. Dr. Ortiz then creates a pocket directly beneath the fascia of the calf muscle, carefully considering the desired placement and symmetry. The silicone implants, which are chosen based on size and shape preferences discussed during the consultation, are inserted into the pockets. Dr. Ortiz takes great care to ensure that the implants are positioned correctly and symmetrically in the leg to ensure the best possible result. After placing the implants, the surgeon meticulously closes the incisions with sutures and applies bandages or dressings to protect the surgical site.
