By: Dr. J. Timothy Katzen


Looks are important, PERIOD. If you know someone who thinks otherwise, you are either being lied to, or that person already has a great body. There is a reason why millions of people, including global celebrities, undergo plastic surgery they want to look at the best version of themselves. So, what is the most appealing aspect of your look? Is it your belly? Your hands? Your face? The answer might surprise you, but it may be your LEGS.

Many people overlook the importance of having great legs, especially the calves. Do you know? Calves are one of the most intimate parts of the human body. And why wouldn't they be? They are soft, and they have curves and are quite delicate as well.

However, not everyone is blessed with the luxury of great calves, but that doesn't mean they can never have it. Some amazing plastic surgeons can give you the kind of calves you have only dreamed of. Here we answer some of the most common questions asked by people before undergoing calf implants surgery.

1. What is a Calf Implant?

Calf augmentation is achieved with a calf implant. Calf implant insertion is a surgical procedure aimed at increasing and defining the shape of calves. Some people might opt for a better diet plan to improve their calves, but it is a very difficult and slow process. If you are a figure-conscious person looking for prompt and desired results a calf implant might be the way to go.

2. Who's it for?

So, people often ask whether they should get a calf implant surgery or not. They are confused if the procedure is meant for them and whether they need it. The answer is fairly simple. If you are tired of calf exercises and just can not get that calf shape you desire, consider calf implant surgery. Hence, most everyone can have the procedure. Mostly models and fitness freaks and gym rats get calf implants. Often, this opens doors for them, as they can wear better clothing and might even get some showbiz opportunities.

3. Is This Harmful?

Ok, we get the concern reshaping this part of your body doesn't sound too safe. Calf implant augmentation is a common surgical procedure conducting by expert plastic surgeons. The technology has also improved significantly, virtually making everything possible.

Medical practitioners are always attempting to provide the best service so that the procedure is not only safe, but also gives you the desired results. If it makes you feel any better, it is a carefully, well-thought out process plastic surgeons make preparations before the procedure regarding how the process will take place and what kind of equipment is required. Chances of failure in such procedures are rare.

We still recommend you schedule a consultation meeting with a calf implant expert, so that you have a better idea regarding what to expect.

4. Is it worth the Investment?

A great and well-defined leg is worth everything. Don't believe us? Ask ramp models and other celebrities who take pride in how great their legs look. Yes, we admit that it's a pricey procedure, but it's not like you have to replace or revise the calf implant every so often. This one-time investment can result in a lifetime of happiness and satisfaction.

The calf implant:

The calf implant is a FDA approved product. This means that the calf implant has been studied in the laboratory and in humans. The calf implant has been deemed safe. The calf implant is made of a semi-solid silicone. That means if the calf implant is ruptured or punctured, the silicone will not leak. Also, this means that the silicone in the calf implant will not leak throughout your body.

The Calf implant procedure:

Calf implant insertion is performed under general anesthesia and takes approximately 2 to 3 hours to complete. During the calf implant procedure, you are turned face down. A small incision is made in the back of your knee. A pocket is created carefully and the calf implant is inserted. The incision is closed. Drains are not required. You should be able to return to a desk type job at about 1 to 2 weeks. If your job entails more physical activity, you may be able to return to work 3 to 4 weeks after the calf implant procedure. You should be able to resume normal physical activity 4 to 6 weeks after calf implant insertion.

Bottom Line

All in all, calf implant insertion can dramatically improve your overall appearance, and it would be worth the investment. Though some might even tell you that the procedure is unnecessary, it is still ultimately your decision how you want to look at calf implant augmentation.
