Calf implants, or calf augmentation, is often the choice for men and women who want to improve the size and shape of their calves, and create a more defined calf region. The procedure involves the use of silicone implants, which are inserted to increase the volume, and give the calves a more toned and bulky appearance. Calf augmentation is also performed to enhance calves that are affected by congenital and physical defects, such as clubfoot.
Calf implants are available in a range of sizes and shapes, and are usually made of soft adhesive silicone. The incisions through which the implants are introduced are usually made behind the crease of the knee. The silicone implants are then placed under the deep fascia, which lies in front of the posterior muscles. The precise placement of the incisions will depend on whether corrections are being made to both the inner and outer calves.
