Calf Implants for Men in Los Angeles, CA
Calf Implants, performed at Beverly Hills Breast and Body Institute by board-certified plastic surgeon Jaime S. Schwartz, M.D., F.A.C.S., could be the perfect solution for all Beverly Hills and Los Angeles residents who find it difficult to develop their calf muscles.
What Are Calf Implants?
Many people find it difficult to develop the calf muscles despite a strict diet and an impressive workout plan. Part of the difficulty of calf development arises from the location of the muscle ‘belly’ in relation to the bone insertion, which means that some patients just have great difficulty in building calf mass because of the lack of striated muscle in the area. Calf implants employ the use of solid, soft silicone implants to address these troubling areas. Calf implants from Dr. Schwartz and Beverly Hills Breast and Body Institute can have you looking athletic and youthful, just the way you want to look.
Benefits of Calf Implants
Many men want to increase the size and shape of their calves. Typically, men want an appearance that emphasizes the bulk of the calf muscle, which for some people is really a genetic impossibility, no matter how much you exercise and diet the right way. Schedule your consultation now and find out how calf implants could give you a great looking pair or masculine legs. The implants Dr. Schwartz uses are made with a silicone shell that is designed to mimic the natural shape and feel of calf muscles, so no one will know that you have calf implants.
Are Calf Implants Right For Me?
As a result of the inability to develop calf muscle mass, many men are unhappy with the size and shape of their calf muscles to the extent that they avoid wearing clothes that expose their seemingly spindly legs. In these instances, even intensive exercise does not significantly enlarge the calf muscles. For patients with congenital issues, calf implants can also be used to correct deformities that are a result from injury, muscle deterioration or disease, including club foot and polio.
Elements of a Calf Implants
Patients have the option to have the inner head of the muscle enlarged, the outer head or both. The result is that the existing musculature is made to appear larger and more defined. During your consultation, Dr. Schwartz will review the different elements of calf implants and answer any questions you may have. Contact us now to set up your consultation.
What Is a Calf Implants Procedure?
Calf augmentation is generally performed as an outpatient procedure that requires about an hour to complete. An incision is made in the natural crease behind the knee where a pocket, large enough to place the calf implants, is created. The calf implants can then be placed on both the upper inside or outside of the leg. Next, the incision is closed with sutures, and a bandage is very carefully applied to reduce any swelling or discomfort. Calf augmentation is often performed in conjunction with liposuction of both the ankle and leg. This provides a thinner, more athletic and defined appearance.
How Long Is The Recovery After a Calf Implants Procedure?
Your recovery period after a calf implant procedure can be divided into short-term surgical recovery and long-term cosmetic recovery. The surgical recovery happens in the first week following the procedure itself. During this time, you will be instructed by Dr. Schwartz to walk around. However, when lying or sitting, you should have your legs elevated, which can help to significantly reduce swelling and discomfort. After two days, the dressings are removed, and you will be encouraged to begin a more vigorous routine of walking, which allows the muscles to start becoming accustomed to having the implants present and allows the skin of the legs to start stretching and feeling more comfortable. After the dressings are removed, you may begin to take short daily showers. After the first week or so, you should begin to feel more comfortable walking greater distances, even if your stride is a little bit stiff-legged. You should be walking more normal after two to three weeks and can usually progress to vigorous activities about a month or two following the surgery.
