“I always thought that only bodybuilders get their calves done, until I found that my friend had them done. They look very natural and sexy. Now she is always wearing skirts and showing off her legs. I am very happy for her and am considering having my calves augmented as well. Alma, age 32 “
Calf augmentation is a cosmetic surgery procedure for enhancing the appearance of the calves, enlarging them, and to make them more proportional in size and shape to the legs and the rest of the body. In this plastic surgery procedure calf implants of a variety of shapes, sizes, and contours, are placed over the existing calf muscles — Gastrocnemius and Soleus Muscles — to achieve fuller and shapelier calves
The popularity of calf augmentation among both men and women has soared in recent years as people are becoming more aware of the existence of this cosmetic surgery procedure. I am frequently told by consulting patients that “if I knew that there was such a procedure to augment my claves with implants, I would have done it years ago.”
Beverly Hills men and women have different reasons for wanting to have their calves augmented. Men who work out and have a well-built upper body, often are ashamed of their “chicken legs” or “bow legs.” They are often frustrated by not being able to build-up their lower body and calves in proportion to their upper body. They also want to show off their “pumped” body in tank tops but feel uneasy about wearing shorts.
On the other hand, there are those who seek calf augmentation as a means of restoring calves that have lost volume as a result of congenital or physical defects such as Polio, Spina Bifida, and Club Feet.
“I always avoided wearing shorts or going to the pool with friends because of my “chicken legs.” No matter how hard I worked out, I just couldn’t develop my calves. After calf augmentation, I am no longer self-conscious about my calves.

The reason women get calf augmentation is to get curvaceous and sexy legs. This becomes more of an issue when they wear high heels, because the calves become most noticeable then. They want to show off their silky and smooth legs, which have all the right curves. It’s all about body language.
Most people want their calves to look natural, full, and curvaceous. In many men, the overwhelming emphasis is to augment the size and bulk of the calves in order to make them look as if you have worked out. Looking at the legs from the front, the medial (inner) belly of the Gastrocnemius muscle needs to look full-bodied and strong. Looking from the side, the Lateral (outer) belly of the Gastrocnemius muscle is mostly visible, and its augmentation contributes to forming the curve and flow of the leg. In women, this feature is usually more important, but the ultimate goal is to achieve a natural balance.
Those with unrealistic expectations, severe medical problems, chronic skin infection of legs, and poor circulation or chronic swelling of the lower extremities are not good candidates for calf augmentation.
