Calf Augmentation Johannesburg Plastic & Reconstructive surgeon, Dr. Fayman explains…
Thin and poorly contoured legs can become a significant source of anguish to some people. Certain conditions can result in noticeable asymmetry between the legs. The calf muscles are particularly difficult to develop, as many bodybuilders know.
“The calf implant is inserted through a 4cm incision, placed in the skin crease behind the knee”
Calf augmentation is accomplished by placing silicone gel-filled implants deep into the envelope of the leg muscles. The implant is placed through a 4 cm incision placed in the skin crease behind the knee. Various sizes and shapes of implants are available for selection, to suit one’s exact desires.
Fat transfer for calf augmentation
Fat transfer, using your own fat, is becoming a popular procedure for giving the calves a fuller appearance. Using liposuction, fat is removed from other areas of the body and re-injected into the calves where it is needed. Fat is usually taken from the abdomen, “love handles”, hips or buttocks. Careful consideration is taken to determine the site from which the fat will be suctioned and the decision is based on various factors such as the body balance and the overall look.
