Calf implants are for men who find it difficult to grow and sculpt their calf muscles even after putting in their time at the gym. For these men, calf implants are a great option to build both volume and definition. This procedure also offers a solution to those men who feel their proportion is not even. Dr. Douglas Steinbrech specializes in calf implants for his patients in NYC. For many individuals, it is easier to build their upper body, and have a more difficult time adding muscle to their legs, especially in the calf area. This often results in a very uneven look between the upper and lower body which men tend to be self-conscious about.

These calf implants are made of a soft silicon material. Over-implementation can be a risk, so it is important to evaluate your entire body before selecting an implementation size. Each implant is customized to fit the patient during surgery. This is an overall simple procedure requiring a small incision behind the knee where the implants are inserted. Calf Implants can be the ultimate solution to increase calf size, symmetry, and body confidence.

RequestACOnsultationWhen Should You Consider This Surgery Procedure?

Male patients from NYC who consider calf implants:

  •  Seek to emphasize the bulk of the calf muscle
  • Desire a lower leg more anatomically proportionate to your thigh (usually women)
  • If you are a male bodybuilder and you’ve reached the plateau of calf development with exercise, but you’re not satisfied with the definition of your lower leg
  • If wish to correct lower leg defects resulting from injury; disease, such as polio; or birth conditions


Calf implants are inserted through an incision behind the knee. Through small incisions, implants can be inserted to create improved calf definition. Dr. Steibrech can even use your own fat to increase the size of your calves, so that nothing artificial may be needed to correct a natural deformity or to increase the size of the leg.

Calf implants are also used for reconstructive surgery to help correct deformities or congenital defects. In general, the calf implant is placed through a small incision in the crease behind the knee. The implant is then put behind the fascia immediately under the skin in front of the posterior muscles of the calves. The calf implants are placed in what is known as the posterior compartment.


Calf implant surgery in NYC is performed either for elective purposes or to treat medical conditions or injuries affecting the calves. If you are bothered by a calf that is disproportionate to your thighs and does not respond to weight training or exercise, calf implants may be right for you.

Some patients in NYC who choose calf implants are bodybuilders who desire enhanced leg contours. Other patients have suffered an injury or disease that led to shrinkage of the leg or significant loss of muscle mass.


Calf implant results are permanent. For safety reasons, you will have scheduled returns to Dr. Steinbrech’s office for follow-up evaluation whenever you notice any changes in your calf implants. Do not hesitate to contact your surgeon when you have any questions or concerns.


Some of the risks of calf implants include:

  • Adverse reaction to anesthesia
  • Infection and bleeding
  • Changes in sensation
  • Scarring
  • Allergic reactions
  • Damage to underlying structures


Once the calf implant surgery is complete, your legs will be sore but you will be encouraged to walk with assistance. NYC patients will be able to walk, drive, and resume low-stress leg activities within three to five days after their calf implant surgery. Three to four weeks after surgery you may return to regular gym workouts, including leg exercises.
