- Calf Implants
CALF IMPLANTS CASE #170
This 28-year-old paramedic wanted to have correction of her thin and bow looking calves. After thorough evaluation in our Fort Lauderdale cosmetic surgery practice we discussed calf reshaping with silicone implants.
Surgery was done in our office based surgery center in Fort Lauderdale, in general anesthesia. Soft silicone rubber calf implants were placed through small incisions in the knee creases. Postoperative course was uneventful. Patient was encouraged to walk with a walker for 2 days.
Images before calf reshaping surgery on the left demonstrate bowing of the legs. Images on the right show patient 6 months after calf augmentation with silicone implants. Notice improvement in the shape of the mid-calves and correction of bowing. Scars in the knee creases will continue to improve and fade.
