Calf Augmentation in Dallas, TX
DALLAS CALF AUGMENTATION SPECIALISTS – GENECOV PLASTIC SURGERY GROUP
Serving Calf Augmentation Patients in Dallas, Southlake and Plano, TX
What is Calf Augmentation?
Calf augmentation is a procedure that uses calf implants designed to simulate the appearance of a larger muscle. Thin, shapeless legs can be a source of insecurity for both men and women. Calf augmentation can provide the muscular, well-defined legs these patients have always yearned for.
In addition to cosmetic motivation, many calf augmentations are performed on patients suffering with polio or club foot, as these conditions can cause contracted calf muscles. If you think you could benefit from calf augmentation in Dallas, Southlake or Plano, please call us today to set up your initial consultation.
How are Calf Augmentations Performed?
Calf augmentations are typically performed under general anesthetic, so the patient will feel no discomfort during the implantation. All calf implants are generally made of solid silicone elastamer, which gives the best feel and most natural appearance. Unlike older implant styles, silicone has a similar feel and firmness to the surrounding tissue, so they cannot be felt through the skin.
During calf augmentation, a small incision is made behind the knee. An incision is made within the muscle to create a pocket for the implant. The calf implant is inserted and placed within the fibers of the calf muscles for a natural look.
Am I a Good Candidate for Calf Augmentation?
Many of the calf augmentation patients we see in Dallas, Southlake or Plano often feel as though They’re missing something. We recommend that clients try to develop the muscle through weight lifting and exercise prior to considering surgery. Some people do not build muscle easily, so exercise alone will not always give the desired results, and calf implants can help you achieve your best look.
In some cases, calf implants are done to correct growth defects or injuries. In this case, the goal is to return the area to its natural shape, rather than to enlarge. Patients often use calf implants to correct a variety of conditions, including bowlegs and disproportionate calf development due to nerve disease.
Whatever the reason, an implant can be shaped to fit your needs perfectly. Calf implants come in a variety of shapes and sizes, or a custom implant can be created as needed. Your surgeon will evaluate your musculature and determine how to achieve the most natural proportion. Calf implants allow for normal use of the underlying muscle; in fact, no impairment of the calf has been shown to result from a calf augmentation.
What Kind of Post-Operative Calf Augmentation Care Can I Expect?
Following surgery, we recommend that you avoid strenuous activity for six to eight weeks, to allow for a complete recovery. Walking may feel difficult, but elevating the leg and/or wearing a compression stocking around the calves can help reduce swelling.
As with any surgery, you should limit your activity until you are completely comfortable and can exercise without any discomfort. Typically, you can resume exercise four to six weeks following calf implant surgery, but running is off limits for up to three months. By following your surgeon’s directions carefully, you can ensure that your calf implants will heal fully.
