Calf Implants in Los Angeles, CA

Pump up your curves in a firming and feminizing way with beauty-provoking calf implants performed at Beverly Hills Breast and Body Institute by board-certified plastic surgeon Jaime S. Schwartz, M.D., F.A.C.S., for all Beverly Hills and Los Angeles residents who want optimal results from their calf implants.

What are Calf Implants?

Many athletically-oriented women who exercise and work out regularly find it very difficult to develop their calf muscles. The resulting “stick legs” are aesthetically unappealing. Some patients just have tremendous difficulty in building calf mass because of the lack of striated muscles in the area. Calf implants employ the use of solid, soft silicone implants to address these troubling areas. Calf implants from Dr. Schwartz and Beverly Hills Breast and Body Institute can have you looking athletic and youthful just the way you want to look.

Benefits of Calf Implants

Many women want to increase the size and shape of their calf to give it more of a graceful and sexy quality. The implants Dr. Schwartz uses for calf implants are created with a silicone shell that is designed to mimic the natural shape and feel of your calf muscles, so no one will be the wiser, and no one will know that you have calf implants.

Are Calf Implants Right For Me?

As a result of an inability to develop graceful calf muscle mass, many women are unhappy with the size and shape of their calf muscles to the extent that they avoid wearing clothes that expose their seemingly too thin legs. In these instances of very thin calves, even intensive exercise does not significantly enlarge your calf muscles. In particular, patients are unhappy when the relationship between relatively larger thigh muscles can remain stubbornly disproportionate to the size of their smaller calf muscles.

Elements of a Calf Implant Procedure

Patients have the option to have the inner head of the muscle enlarged, the outer head or both. The result is that the existing musculature is made to appear tastefully larger and more defined. During your consultation, Dr. Schwartz will review the different elements of calf implants for women with you and answer any questions you may have. Contact us now to set up your consultation.

What Is a Calf Implant Procedure?

Calf augmentation is generally performed as an outpatient procedure that requires about an hour to complete. An incision is made in the natural crease behind the knee where a pocket, large enough to place the calf implants, is created. The calf implants can then be placed on both the upper inside or outside of the leg. Next, the incision is closed with sutures, and a bandage is very carefully applied to reduce any swelling or discomfort. Calf augmentation is often performed in conjunction with liposuction of both the ankle and leg. This provides a thinner, more athletic and defined appearance to your legs.

How Long Is The Recovery After a Calf Implant Procedure?

Your recovery period after a calf implant procedure can be divided into short-term surgical recovery and long-term cosmetic recovery. The surgical recovery happens in the first week following the procedure itself. During this time, you will be instructed by Dr. Schwartz to walk around. However, when lying or sitting, you should try to have your legs elevated, which can help to significantly reduce swelling and discomfort. After two days, your dressings are removed, and you will be encouraged to begin a more vigorous routine of walking which allows the muscles to start becoming accustomed to having the implants present and allows the skin of the legs to start stretching and feeling more comfortable. After the dressings are removed, you may begin to take short daily showers. After the first week or so you usually will be beginning to feel more comfortable walking greater distances, even if your stride is a little bit stiff legged. You should be walking more normally after two to three weeks and can usually progress to vigorous activities about a month or two following the surgery.
