What is Calf Augmentation?

Calf augmentation is a procedure designed to help one achieve the appearance of muscular calves. For some people, no matter how much they work out, they will still find their calf muscles underdeveloped. Calf augmentation provides a solution. This surgical procedure involves the insertion of artificial implants within the calf muscles. This results in the appearance of more mass and definition to the calves. These artificial implants are made from silicone and come in a variety of shapes and sizes to bring about more natural-looking results. Fat augmentation may also be used to enhance the calves’ appearance or, in some cases, achieve a balanced look.

Calf augmentation may be performed for cosmetic reasons, which can enhance one’s appearance and possibly boost self-esteem and self-confidence. However this procedure can also be done to help correct certain congenital and physical defects like Polio, Spina Bifida and Clubfoot. Calf augmentation is usually performed on an outpatient basis, allowing the patient to return home the same day. Downtime is minimal, however it is recommended that patients avoid any excessive walking for a few weeks following surgery.
