Lower leg shaping

Calf forming surgical procedure

Calf forming is a surgical procedure, the essence of which is to place implants on the inside of the lower leg.

The need for sub-implantation is usually associated with a congenital lack of clearly defined calf relief. Although the popular, non-medical name of the calf process is “Roman calf”, the idea is to shape an aesthetic contour on the inside of the leg. Most men use male calf care, although there are women with this problem.

Calfs are the most difficult to shape muscles with the help of exercise and sports. This is because the calf consists of superficial and deep muscles. Surface shapes its relief, while the depths are more down to the bones. That is, walking, running and sports heal deep muscles, but they do not have much attitude to the surface. Sometimes the absence of a calf is due to the fact that the muscles are shorter at the expense of tendons. These are genetic predispositions.

Therefore, when a person wants to outline the relief of their legs, the best solution is plastic surgery to form a calf.

Place the implant under the fascia of the muscle, the scar may be in the back fold or a little further down. The length of the implant is consistent with the type of natural muscle. Caring for a calf is a delicate construction and sculpting operation because very often the reason for the visible deformation is that the patient’s muscles are short in relation to the lower leg. Therefore, the type of implant and the method of its integration are very similar to the work of sculpture. But in this case, the aesthetic effect must be consistent with the anatomical features of the patient.

No complete anesthesia (general anesthesia) is required for this calf preparation procedure.

During the recovery period, about 14 days, an elastic bandage or special socks is carried.

During the consultation, the calf plastic surgeon specifies the size of the implant and the result the patient wishes to achieve. In general good physical health, this operation does not differ in complexity and possible complications from all analogous operations associated with implant placement.
