Calf augmentation

Goal of calf augmentation: To correct the shape and volume of the thin calves, as well as the correction of the calf asymmetry due to a past disease or trauma.

Operative technique of calf augmentation: Incision about 3 cm long is placed in the popliteal fossa and on the inner side of the calf a subfascial pocket is created where the long spindle-shape or teardrop-shape silicone implant is placed.

Duration and anesthesia: Usually lasts about one hour in general anesthesia.

Recovery after calf augmentation: Stitches are removed after 14 days, and physical activities that require efforts of the leg muscles, like long walks or running, should be avoided 4 weeks.

Rare complications: Calf edema and bruises. Mild pain and other unpleasant sensations during long standing and physical activities may last as long as two months.
