What is Calf Implants Surgery ?
Calf implants or calf augmentation is the procedure of choice for enhancing the appearance of the calf muscles, enlarging them and making them proportional in size and shape with the legs and the rest of the body.
The main reason for undergoing calf implant surgery is because of underdeveloped calf muscles. This can be bilateral, i.e underdeveloped calf muscles in both legs or sometimes unilateral caused by hypoplasia. The causes for a hypo-plastic leg can be congenital or acquired.
Some of the congenital causes are:
- Skeletal abnormalities such as underdeveloped calf, longitudinal arrests and talipes equinovarus
- CNS deformations such as spina bifida
- Neuromuscular defects such as cerebral palsy
Other acquired causes can be:
- Nerve damage by trauma
- Collagen-vascular diseases such as scleroderma
- CNS infections such as poliomyelitis
- Charcot-Marie-Tooth disease
|Surgery Time||1-2 Hours (depending on the type of surgery)|
|Anesthesia Type||General Anesthesia or Regional Spinal Anesthesia|
|Stitch Removal||7-10 Days|
|Initial Recovery Time||2 Weeks|
Am I a good Candidate?
If you are above 18, physically fit, mentally and emotionally stable, you are a good candidate for the calf augmentation or calf implants plastic surgery for the below mentioned reasons:
- If you suffer from above mentioned congenital and acquired medical problems
- If you are a sports person or a bodybuilder and want to achieve the look of bulky muscles in calf which cannot be achieved even with greatest effort of exercise
- If have asymmetrical and lop-sided calves
- If you have suffered burns or accidents and need reconstruction of calves.
How is Calf Implants Surgery done?
Proper size and position of the implant is determined preoperatively.
An incision is placed on the inner portion of the knee in the natural crease. It passes through the underlying connective tissue and muscles. Then with the help of a blunt dissector an internal pocket is created to make space for the implant to be placed. The implant is then inserted.
Sutures are placed and dressed in compression bandages for proper healing and positioning.
What is the Recovery after Calf Implants Surgery like?
It is normal to have some pain and heaviness in the legs for a few days after the procedure. It would take you a couple of weeks to get adjusted to the bulk in your legs. You should be able to return to work in about 10 days to 2 weeks after surgery. You can gradually return to normal walking, followed by brisk walking. Patients are usually able to return to their full physical activities within eight to twelve weeks.
