Calf Implants

Calf implant surgery presents a practical solution for men seeking to augment both the volume and definition of their calf muscles. Our practice provides male specific calf implant procedures that deliver the best possible results. These soft silicone implants are individually customized to suit the proportions of each patient’s legs during the surgery. Careful assessment of potential over-implementation risks is conducted, taking into account the overall body aesthetics. Specifically crafted for men, silicone calf implants aim to enhance muscle definition and refine leg contours effectively.

What Are Calf Implants?

Calf implants refer to silicone implants specifically crafted to improve the appearance of the lower leg in men. This procedure entails the placement of soft silicone implants into the calf muscle, resulting in a more pronounced and muscular aesthetic. For individuals encountering difficulty in attaining their desired calf shape through exercise, calf implants offer a viable solution, particularly since calf muscles are often challenging to develop. Each implant is customized to suit the patient’s anatomy during surgery, with thorough consideration given to the patient’s overall physique to ensure proper sizing and prevent over-enhancement.

How Does Calf Implant Surgery Work?

During the calf implant procedure, an incision is made behind the knee, and the implant is inserted through small incisions to enhance the definition of the calf muscles. These implants can also serve in reconstructive surgery to address deformities or congenital defects. Positioned behind the fascia and beneath the skin, the implant rests in front of the posterior muscles of the calves. Additionally, Dr. Steinbrech may utilize fat harvested from the patient’s own body to augment calf size, eliminating the necessity for implant materials.

Calf Implant Recovery Time

Following calf implant surgery, patients may encounter leg soreness initially, but they will be encouraged to engage in walking with assistance. Within three to five days post-surgery, patients can gradually resume walking, driving, and engaging in low-impact leg activities. After three to four weeks, they can typically resume their regular gym routines, including exercises targeting the legs.
