Calf augmentation is a plastic surgery procedure that usually takes less than two hours. It can be performed under general anesthesia, regional anesthesia such as spinal or epidural block, or under sedation. The patient is positioned prone, and a two inch incision is made in the Popliteal fossa, which is the concavity behind the knee. Through this incision calf implants are placed underneath the leg fascia and over the medial and lateral bellies of the Gastorcnemius muscle. The separating septum between the medial and lateral Gastorcnemius muscles is preserved in order to prevent the over lap of the calf implants.
Calf augmentation surgery is a very delicate and demanding procedure which is only performed by a small minority of Board Certified Plastic Surgeons. Performing Calf enlargement with implants requires extensive knowledge of the lower extremity anatomy, as well as the know-how to work with implants in this challenging area of the body. Furthermore, it requires attention to detail, as well having a sense of proportion and harmony of body parts.
More importantly than any other cosmetic surgery procedure, make sure that your doctor is a Board Certified Plastic Surgeon who has had ample experience in calf augmentation.
