Calf implants can be used to add volume and definition to the muscles in this area, which drastically improves appearance. For those who want to give their calves an attractive look, this is the answer.
Calf implants not only improve the appearance of the legs, but also help improve the appearance of the entire body. These are most suitable for sculpting the lower leg and can be used to correct muscle imbalance as a result of physical defects. The implants create proportionality and improve muscles appearance.
During the procedure, an incision is made in the natural crease behind the knee. Then a large pocket is created enough to place the implants, these can be placed on both the inside and outside of the leg. This area, which consists of muscle and fat, will form scar tissue that will help keep the implant to place. The incision is closed with sutures and a bandage is applied to reduce swelling and discomfort.
Although normal activities can be resumed a few days after surgery, vigorous physical activities should be delayed for approximately six months.
Scarring is minimal with calf implant surgery because the incision is placed behind the knee. Even if the incision is placed in the front of the leg below the knee, scarring will be difficult to see.
With any cosmetic surgery that involves the placement of an implant, the results can last for years. However, as the individual ages and the body changes naturally, implants may no longer look and function the way they did before. At the appropriate time, a patient can choose to replace or remove the implant.
