Calf Implants in Hattiesburg – Everything You Need to Know

calf Implants
Are your calves making your legs look too skinny? Calf implants may be the right solution for you. Our plastic surgeons at the Plastic Surgery Center of Hattiesburg can help you decide if calf implants can help you achieve stronger-looking, more symmetrical legs.

What Are Calf Implants?

Made from silicone rubber, calf implants help give calves a fuller, more contoured look. Your plastic surgeon will place your calf implants just beneath your skin and on top of your calf muscle.

While they cannot make your legs stronger, calf implants can improve the shapely, muscular appearance of your lower legs.

Who Is a Good Candidate for Calf Implants?

Some people have a naturally thin or underdeveloped calf that remains small, no matter how much they exercise or what they eat. You may be a good candidate for calf implants if you:

  • Are physically health.
  • Exercise regularly.
  • Are dissatisfied with the appearance of thin calves despite exercise and strength training.
  • Have realistic expectations about the outcome of your calf implant surgery.
  • Do not smoke or can successfully quit smoking before undergoing the procedure.

Calf Implants Provide Personalized Outcomes

Your plastic surgeon can help you create the legs you’ve always wanted. Your surgeon can choose among many different implant shapes and sizes to create different looks. You can get one or two calf implants in each leg, depending on the look you desire. If you have muscle imbalances that cause your calves to look asymmetrical, with one calf larger than the other, you may want different calf implants in each leg.

Many women who undergo the procedure choose to have calf implants placed only on the inner part of the calf, known as the medial aspect of the calf muscle. Placed here, the calf implant creates a soft curve in the calf and makes the ankle appear thinner. Bodybuilders who want a fuller look may have implants placed on both the medial aspect and the outer leg, known as the lateral aspect.

Your surgeon may recommend having other body contouring procedures to optimize your results from the calf implant. These procedures may include liposuction and fat transfer.
