Calf augmentation or calf implants is a cosmetic procedure which adds fullness to the lower part of the leg. The implant gives the appearance of muscle tone and can sculpt the lower leg and correct imbalance of the muscles.

Some people experience calf development which is not in proportion to their legs, or have bow legs or extremely thin legs and these are the people the procedure is designed to help. This procedure can also be beneficial after an illness (neurological, polio or similar) or an injury.

The implants are usually silicone and should feel the same as a well developed calf muscle.

The Risks:

  • Imprecise placement of implant
  • Movement of implant
  • Asymmetry
  • Infection
  • Bleeding
  • Hardening of scar tissue
