Information about our Calf Implant surgery
What is a Calf Implant procedure?
Calf implants contain silicone, which is a durable rubber-like material. When inserted under the skin, it provides the area with a look of fullness. This can be helpful in providing more fullness in the calves in the absence of defined muscles. In turn, your calves will be bigger in size, too.

Why have a Calf Implant procedure?
There are various reasons why you might want to explore calf implant procedure surgery.  Principal reasons are:
  • If you are looking to enhance the bulk of your calf muscle
  • If you desire a lower leg more anatomically proportionate to your thigh
  • If you are a bodybuilder and you have reached the plateau of calf development with exercise, but you are not satisfied with the definition of your lower leg
  • If you wish to correct lower leg defects resulting from injury; disease, such as polio; or from birth conditions, such as clubfoot or spina bifida

How is the surgery performed?
The step-by-step procedure for calf implants is as follows:
  • Your legs are measured during a preoperative office visit to determine the right implant size for your calves, and then the implants are prepared for surgery.
  • The day of surgery, you are given general anaesthesia or sedation anaesthesia and placed in the prone position (lying face down) on the operating table.
  • The incision is made at the back of the knee, through the skin and fascia (sheet of connective tissue) covering the gastrocnemius muscle.
  • Once your surgeon locates the most salient nerve (tibial nerve), the procedure can proceed without much concern for affecting other nerves or arteries, because there are not many in this area.
  • A snug pocket (large enough only for the implant) is made between this fascia and muscle, into which the implant will be inserted.
  • The implant is placed in the insertion and the leg is examined before the incision is closed with sutures.
