Calf Implants in Melbourne by Skinclub Cosmetic Doctors

Calf Implants Melbourne

Calf Implants

These are cosmetic, reconstructive procedures that focus on the calves. This is sometimes referred to as calf augmentation. It aims to add volume and fullness to your slim calves while enhancing their shape and contour.

Typically, calf implants are made of soft solid medical-grade silicone material. They are surgically inserted into the calf area of the lower legs. This plastic surgery of the calves can be performed as a day procedure by a board-certified surgeon.

Calf implants offer more permanent results than injectables. To determine if this leg enhancement procedure is ideal for you, you may visit SKIN CLUB Cosmetic Doctors for a complete and extrinsic evaluation and diagnosis.

Anyone interested to enhance the bulk of their calves can undergo this plastic surgery procedure. Some patients who want to improve their balance can take advantage of the benefits of calf implants.

Just like women, men can also be conscious about their body and physique, especially with the size and contour of their muscles. One of the most prevalent cosmetic treatments that men undergo is calf implant plastic surgery. Thus, calf augmentation is not just for women but for men, too.

Here is the procedure for calf implant surgery:

  • The first step is consultation with a specialist plastic surgeon or a board-certified cosmetic doctor.
  • On your scheduled calf implant surgery, you will be asked to sign a waiver form as part of the pre-operative process of the surgery.
  • The procedure is usually performed under general anaesthesia. In some cases, regional spinal anaesthesia or local anaesthesia may be enough. A licensed anesthesiologist will administer the anaesthesia according to the pain threshold of the patient and as recommended by the plastic surgeon.
  • The patient is then placed on his or her stomach so the calves are accessible.
  • An incision of about 2 to 2.5 inches will be made over the natural crease behind the knee, through the tough connective tissue fascia that covers the gastrocnemius muscle.
  • A pocket is then created between the fascia and the underlying muscle using a long blunt dissector.
  • The implant is carefully inserted into the space. Surgeons make sure that there are no clasping or folds with the implant.
  • If extra implants are necessary to achieve the patient’s desires size and shape, the procedure will proceed in the same manner.
  • The incision is sutured to ensure that the unwarranted bleeding and wound opening is prevented.
  • Lastly, the symmetry of the calves are confirmed and after which, the legs are wrapped in compression bandages.

During the consultation, your plastic surgeon will evaluate the condition of your calves and determine the size of calf implants needed to achieve your desired shape and contour. At this time, you will be asked to stand in front of a full-length mirror. The sizers are then sited on the calves to define the precise position of the implants.

Your surgeon or doctor will then discuss the treatment with you thoroughly to ensure that you know what you will be going through. After the evaluation, you will be scheduled for your calf augmentation procedure.

On average, it takes about 1 hour to complete the treatment. However, for patients who wanted bigger calf implants, the duration of the procedure may take longer.

In most cases, calf implant surgery is usually performed as a day procedure. That is, patients can go home right after the treatment. Although there are patients who choose to stay overnight in the hospital.

Calf implants use soft solid medical-grade silicone that works well with the human body tissues. Thus, risks and complications are very rare. However, just like any other invasive procedure, calf implant surgery carries with it surgical risks and complications.

Here are some of the possible risks and complications associated with the use of calf implants:

  • Unwarranted bleeding at the incision site;
  • Irritation and infection;
  • Displacement of the silicone implant;
  • Asymmetry or imbalanced shape and size;
  • Improper healing which may result in scarring behind the knee;
  • Nerve damage may lead to numbness of the legs; and
  • Risk of blood and fluid accumulation or seroma.

Post-surgery involves downtimes associated with surgery. This includes mild to moderate pain, bleeding, redness and swelling. Patients may also feel a tight sensation on their calves immediately following the surgery. However, these downtimes will resolve on their own within the next 3 to 5 days.

Your plastic surgeon will ask you to return to the clinic after one week for a post-surgery check-up. During this time, your doctor will evaluate your calves and lower legs to determine whether or not adjustments are necessary. Your doctor will also evaluate your overall health and body condition to ensure that no complications occurred during the process.

Generally, the recovery period for a patient who underwent calf implants is 6 to 12 weeks. It usually depends on the coping mechanism of the patients. Full recovery typically takes 2 to 6 months or even longer for most people.

While some patients only need a couple of weeks of healing time, others take several months to recover.

Calf implant surgery offers instantly noticeable results. However, full results gradually occur as you recover from the treatment. Your lower legs will have the appearance that you desire while ensuring that your skin and leg muscle is toned to perfection.

Typically, it lasts for 10 to 15 years. However, calf implants vary in effect on each patient. Thus, some may take longer than 15 years while others can only enjoy the benefits of calf implant surgery for less than 10 years.

Surgical treatments usually need a couple of weeks off work. For this leg enhancement surgery, it is highly recommended that you take about 2 weeks off work. This will give your leg muscle to adapt to the implant.

One of the aftercare instructions for this surgical procedure is to prevent yourself from engaging in strenuous activities and physical exertions that involve heavy lifting 2 to 3 weeks following the procedure. Thus, you can resume your exercise routines after the second or third week.

Yes, you can discuss desired bulk contour of your calves with your surgeon. During the surgery, the pocket created varies according to the number of silicone implants to be inserted into your calves.

You can drive again after 2 weeks following the treatment. It is highly advised that you discuss thoroughly with your doctor the DOs and DON’Ts post-surgery to ensure more optimum results.
