In most cases calve correction is to add volume or reshape the asymetrical form that is done with the use of silicone implants or fat grafting.
Calf reduction and reshaping procedure by fat grafting is described in the liposuction and liposculpture proceedure.
As the surgery is done in general anesthesia, all tests recommended by the surgeon and the anesthesiologist are required – mostly laboratory tests with internist examination and ECG.
When it comes to an implant augmentation, a 3 cm long incision is formed on the back of the knee, where an implant is placed in specially formed space under the fascia muscle on the inner part of the lower leg.
Recovery and results
Stitches are removed between the 10th and the 14th day and physical activities causing calve muscle activity, like walking and running, are to be avoided for 3-4 weeks.
Results are noticed immediately and considered final once the swelling disappears.
Beside temporary swelling and bruises, it is possible to experience mild pain and discomfort after long standing and physical effort, that can last a few months.
