A calf augmentation is a surgical procedure that gives the calf a more muscular and enhanced look. This procedure is usually done with silicone-based calf implants.
During the procedure Dr. Campos-Leon will make a small incision and insert the calf implants. Dr. Campos-Leon will discuss the different incision options during consultation before the procedure.
What does recovery look like?
After the procedure, dressings or bandages are commonly applied to the areas of incisions. Compression garments must be worn during recovery to minimize swelling and support the calves as they heal. A drainage system is inserted near the incisions in order to drain excess blood or fluid that may collect. Dr. Campos-Leon will provide more details about aftercare following the procedures.
