What Is Calf Augmentation?
There are many factors that can make it difficult or impossible to achieve balanced, symmetrical lower body contours by working out and eating right. Some patients spend countless hours in the gym trying to sculpt and build the calves but can never seem to get the results they want.
When working out cannot bring small or underdeveloped calves into aesthetic proportion with the body, calf augmentation can be an ideal solution. To increase the size of the calves, Dr. Ganchi can place calf implants. He will work with you to choose an implant size that complements your shape and provides the improvements you desire.
Am I a Candidate for Calf Augmentation in New Jersey?
Candidates for calf implants can be men or women who want larger, more defined calves. Calf augmentation is a surgical procedure, so patients must be in good general health and free of any medical conditions that can interfere with the healing process. Candidates must also be non-smokers.
It is important that candidates have realistic expectations for calf augmentation and understand that additional cosmetic surgeries, such as liposuction, may be needed to comprehensively transform the appearance of the lower legs. You can view before and after photos of Dr. Ganchi’s previous patients to help you conceptualize your new lower leg contours.
Calf Augmentation: What to Expect
The first step of calf augmentation is to meet with Dr. Ganchi for a consultation. The consultation allows Dr. Ganchi to ensure that calf implants are the best treatment option for you. If you are a candidate, he will then work with you to choose the ideal calf implants for your body.
On the day of your calf implant surgery, anesthesia will be administered. Once it has taken effect, Dr. Ganchi will make a discreet incision behind each knee. The calf implant is then placed over the calf muscle. Once the calf implants are properly positioned, Dr. Ganchi will close and dress the incisions.
Before & Afters
Calf Augmentation Recovery
You will be able to return home the same day as your calf enhancement procedure, though you will need someone to drive you. You will need to limit your activities as recommended by Dr. Ganchi in order to promote optimal healing.
You will need to wear compression stockings to support your new calf shape. As the area heals, scar tissue will form around the implant to keep it in place, and you will no longer need the compression stockings.
Follow up appointments are key to the recovery process. These appointments allow Dr. Ganchi to monitor the healing process and gradually approve increased activities as it is safe to do so.
How Much Does Calf Augmentation Cost?
The price of calf implant surgery depends on the details of your procedure. The size of the implants, the surgical techniques required, and whether you combine the procedure with additional cosmetic surgeries will affect the cost of calf augmentation.
