Calf implants can help bring a proportionate and attractive shape to your legs. Made of bendable silicone, the implants come in a variety of different shapes and sizes so that you and one of our Orange County surgeons can work to find the ones that give you a natural look.
During the procedure, your surgeon will make a discrete incision behind your knee and form a pocket underneath your muscle for the implant.
Can I benefit from calf implants?
To find out if you are a good candidate for calf implants, schedule a time to talk with one of our Orange County surgeons about your expectations. The doctor will help you determine if calf implants would help you achieve the look you are hoping for. In general, you might be a fit for calf implants if any of the following apply to you:
- Your calves lack any muscular definition
- The muscles on your calves are uneven, or your calves are asymmetrical
- Your calves have an unattractive shape due to an injury
What can I expect after the procedure?
After your procedure, you will experience soreness and swelling in your legs. Keep your legs elevated for a couple of weeks whenever possible. Although you can resume regular activities after about two weeks, you should avoid anything strenuous for three to four weeks. Your Orange County surgeon will go over which pain medication options are best for you.
