Calf Augmentation (Lower Leg Implants) – Fort Worth, TX
Calf augmentation surgery places a flexible, but solid silicone implant into the lower leg’s natural contours to enhance the size and definition of the calves. A calf implant is often requested by body builders who want larger, more muscular-looking legs as well as patients who want to correct an imbalance or physical deformity created by a medical condition or injury. The plastic surgeons at Fort Worth Plastic Surgery choose from a wide selection of calf implant shapes and sizes to accomplish a patient’s surgical goals. Calf implants have become a very popular procedure in recent years and can help to boost your self-confidence with stronger, muscular legs.
The most common method used during this procedure places a silicone implant through a small incision made behind the knee. The implant is positioned into a pocket surgically created within the calf muscle. Depending on the desired result, a second implant may be placed alongside the first to give the calf greater shape. Surgical sutures close the skin. Following surgery, the body naturally creates a capsule to safely enclose the implant in scar tissue. This is a natural implant process and helps the device stay intact and remain in place for years.
