The immediate pain after calf augmentation feels like a leg cramp after working out hard. This pain is worst during the first 24-48 hours after surgery and can be managed with narcotic medication and leg elevation. Wearing shoes with heels takes the pressure off the calves when walking. Using a walker or cane during the first week also takes much pressure off the calves.
Most patients can resume relative normal activities in about seven days following calf augmentation. Most patients return to light work in about a week.
You may resume upper body exercising within that time frame. However, you should resume activity only as is comfortable for you. For a period of three weeks, you should refrain from squatting, bending, and jogging because your muscles will be bruised. You may do calf exercises in about six weeks or when cleared by your plastic surgeon.
Calf augmentation does not hinder your ability to build up your leg and calf muscles. In fact, some doctors believe that after releasing the calf fascia your own calves have a better chance to grow with training.
Calf augmentation does not hinder your ability to have sexual relations. However, you should resume sexual activity only as you feel comfortable in doing so. The desire to resume having sex varies from patient to patient.
After you have completely healed your calf implants are usually very sturdy and cannot get damaged by blunt trauma; unless you sustain a deep laceration of your leg directly over the implants.
Once calf implants heal they don’t need to be ever replaced.
Calf implants do not disintegrate over your lifetime and don’t have to be changed again. They usually maintain their form and looks with aging.
