Calf Implants, also called Calf Augmentation, is a procedure that gives the appearance of larger muscles of the lower legs.
The implants are made in a variety of sizes and are constructed of solid silastic. The consistency is firm yet rubbery and comparable with firm muscles. Usually general anesthesia is used for this procedure because your muscles need to be completely relaxed. The incision is made in the crease behind the knee and an opening called a pocket is made by dissecting around the calf muscle and opening up the area. Once the pocket is fully opened, the implant is squeezed through the incision and placed into the pocket. The incision is then closed and a dressing is applied.
Calf implant surgery requires an overnight stay at the hospital. Swelling and discomfort will be experienced for 2 weeks after surgery. Patients who have undergone calf implant surgery are recommended to take at least 2 weeks' holiday from work.
