Calf Sculpting

Calf Sculpting involves liposuction, fat grafting or an implant to reduce or enhance the contour of your calves. It is also used for people who feel that their leg size is not in proportion to their body, and for those who have certain medical conditions.

Avg Cost: $4000 - $7500
Avg Recovery: 10 - 14 Days
Discomfort Level:
Anesthesia: Local, General or IV Sedation

Calf implants improve contours or accentuate muscular volume of your calves. For cosmetic calf enlargement, either a single anatomic implant that is larger on one side or two implants may be used in each calf to simulate the specific shape of the calf muscle. Alternatively, when the emphasis is more on calf contours than muscle mass, a thinner, cigar-shaped implant may be used for shaping. Keep in mind that implant size can be limited by the tightness of muscle or tissue that will surround the implant.

 

Calf sculpting can help people with medical conditions like spina bifida, polio or club foot. It can also help people who have nerve or muscle damage as the result of trauma or muscle imbalances. 

 

Once your calf implant is complete, you will not be able to feel your implant. Dr. Cho will use calf implants made of solid silicone rather than gel so they will not rupture and they do not need to be replaced.

The calf implant used in calf sculpting is made of FDA-approved silicone that is surgically inserted over the inner and/or outer calf (gastrocnemius) muscle. Calf implants will improve contours or accentuate the muscular volume of your calves. As a result of the surgery your legs will look more fit, proportional and contoured. Dr. Cho will determine the best size and type of implant that will help you reach your goals.

PROS

CONS

  • The results of a calf implant are long- lasting.
  • Your calf sculpting procedure is outpatient surgery and you will go home that same day.
  • Calf sculpting side effects and complications are minimal.
  • You will have about two weeks of downtime before you can resume your normal activities and go back to work.
  • You may need crutches for the first few days after the procedure.
  • Scar tissue may form around the implant.

These solid silicone rubber implants that are used for the calf sculpting procedure are considered to be safe with a low rate of complications. Like other implant procedures, there is a risk of hematomas, seromas, infection and scar tissue formation.
