The increased volume of the calves is of more frequent consultation, for aesthetic reasons, congenital and reconstructive. It is practiced in both men and women. The consultation for aesthetic reasons is the most common. In many cases the patient performs exercise routines to increase the size of their thighs and legs, but only manages to increase the thighs, possibly because congenitally volume of calf muscle is thinner. It is for this reason that the patient consults, cannot increase the volume of calves with adequate exercise. Aesthetically it is not nice to have some thighs well contoured, with good volume, with thin calves also make you look bulky knee, which worsens the defect.
It is particularly common to see men who do sport and do not have a good volume of calves, and correct this defect with implants. As for acquired problems are also frequent complaint. Such as polio sequelae, leave a slimmer leg than the other, here as well as placing implants in the calf, is sometimes also necessary to increase the volume of the thighs, with implants designed especially for this area.
Traffic accidents with massive tissue loss may require placement of implants, calf or thigh implants. There are also many congenital syndromes have asymmetry of the lower limbs, which require the placement of implants.
How is the surgery performed?
It is a simple procedure. It’s used local or general anesthesia. Through a small incision placed in the popliteal region or behind the knee, one of the natural folds of this area, the implants are inserted. The incision is 4 cm, and to be camouflaged in a natural crease of the knee, the incision then is not noticed.
The implants are placed silicone gel-filled, come in different sizes and shapes according to the needs of each patient.
The surgery aims to increase the volume of the calf muscle, not increase low-lying areas who do not have muscles like the neck of the foot. This is to increase muscle mass in a very natural. If dentures are placed very large, were noticed and the aesthetic result is not good.
The implants are placed according to the needs of each patient in 2 positions: below the muscular fascia of the gastrocnemius muscle or below these muscles in a deeper position. The patient can walk the day after surgery and must use special lycra half a month to keep the implants in place while the tissues heal around it.
As breast implants, the calf is fully biocompatible, non-rejection reactions or any type of disease and the aesthetic result is quite satisfactory, a good placement depends on the surgeon ‘s experience in this type of procedure.
