Some people feel tormented by the fact that they have thin and shapeless legs. Certain pathological conditions can result in noticeable asymmetry between the legs, including Polio and a variety of congenital anomalies. The calf muscles are predominantly difficult to develop.

About the procedure

Calf augmentation is accomplished by the insertion of silicone, gel-filled implants deep into the muscle envelope of the leg muscles. The implant is placed through an incision of 4 cm and is placed in the skin crease behind the knee. A choice of sizes and shapes of implants are available for selection. The large variety of available implants can be used to match or achieve a range of anatomical and aesthetic outcomes.*

About the anaesthesia

The operation requires conscious sedation with local anaesthetic infiltration or general anaesthetic. Regional anaesthesia in a form of spinal or epidural block can be used as well
