Regular exercise doesn't always give you great looking legs. A calf implant can help create the right proportions from hip to toe.
Calf implant surgery is popular for both men and women who are unable to increase the size of their calf muscles and as a result of this can feel less confident and avoid wearing clothes that expose their calves. The implants are usually made of silicone and come in different sizes and shapes, similar to breast and buttock implants.
Calf implants are performed under a general anaesthetic. A discrete incision is made behind the back of the knee where a soft silicone implant is placed in a pocket over existing calf muscles. The implant is held in place by your own muscle or a couple of stitches. Surgery can take between 1 and 2 hours to perform per calf depending on the procedure.
You may need an overnight stay in hospital and you should get plenty of rest for the first few days. A compression garment will need to be worn for the first few weeks day and night to help with the swelling. Gentle walking is encouraged a few weeks after the procedure as this allows the muscle to get used to the implant. Full exercise can be introduced after six weeks.
