Calf Augmentation with Calf Implants
Calf augmentation is a plastic surgery procedure performed to increase the size and enhance the appearance of the calf by adding mass and definition to that part of the body.
Sometimes, exercise alone cannot give your calves the shape you desire. When that happens, calf augmentation performed by Dr. Ganchi in New Jersey, a highly trained, board-certified plastic surgeon, is the best solution.
The best calf augmentation candidates are men and women who would like to have a more developed and muscular look to their calf area. The patient should be in good overall health and have realistic expectations.
Calf Augmentation Procedure
Calf augmentation is usually performed as an outpatient procedure and requires about one to two hours to complete.
During the calf implant procedure, an incision is made, hidden in the natural crease behind each knee. Dr. Ganchi then carefully places the calf implant in a ‘pocket’ that he creates over each calf muscle.
The area where the implant has been placed, consisting of muscle and fat, will form scar tissue that will help keep the implant in place. The incision is closed with sutures, and a dressing is applied. Support stockings are worn to reduce swelling and discomfort.
Sometimes calf augmentation is performed in conjunction with liposuction of the ankle and leg to enhance the results.
Calf Enhancement Recovery and Results
After surgery, you will spend some time in our recovery room, allowing our staff to make sure all is well and that you are ready to go home. You will need to have someone drive you home following your NJ calf implant surgery.
You will receive specific instructions on what to do and not to do during your recovery period and what to expect during the healing process.
Although normal activities can be resumed usually within a week after surgery, vigorous physical activity should be avoided for about three to six months.
Calf Implant Risks
All surgical procedures carry some inherent risk. Significant complications from calf implants are unusual. However, in rare cases, bleeding or implant shifting may occur and in extremely rare instances, the calf implants may damage the nearby calf muscle.
After your calf augmentation procedure, you will find your calves to have more definition and mass, and to be shapelier than before.
NOTE: It is of vital importance that you make sure your calf augmentation procedure is performed by a plastic surgeon with the proper knowledge and skill to achieve optimum results. This includes board certification and training at the best institutions of medical learning. Dr. Ganchi is board certified in calf augmentation procedures and was educated and trained at Harvard, Princeton, and Duke University. Calf augmentation is not a common procedure and most plastic surgeons have never performed this procedure. It is critical to select a surgeon like Dr. Ganchi who has performed many calf augmentation procedures in NJ.
