Calf Augmentation

Calf augmentation is a surgical procedure that involves inserting implants into the calf muscles to enhance their size and shape. The surgery is often performed on people who have naturally thin or underdeveloped calves or on bodybuilders who want to enhance the appearance of their calf muscles. The implants used in calf augmentation surgery are made of silicone or other materials and are placed through incisions made in the back of the knee. The procedure can be performed under general anesthesia or local anesthesia with sedation and typically takes around one to two hours to complete. Recovery from calf augmentation surgery can take several weeks, and patients will need to wear compression garments and avoid strenuous exercise for several weeks to allow the muscles to heal properly. As with any surgical procedure, calf augmentation surgery carries risks, including infection, bleeding, scarring, and nerve damage. Patients should discuss the risks and benefits of the procedure with their surgeon before deciding whether to undergo calf augmentation surgery.
