Calf muscles are responsible for giving the legs the most definition. Having defined, proportionate, and muscular calves gives the legs a nice shape. India's calf augmentation process includes calf implants. These implants are used to reshape the lower leg, which increases muscle definition and volume in the calves. Women and men can both have calf implants. In addition to cosmetic purposes, calf implants can also be used for reconstructive purposes. By using this method, the lower portion of the by is enhanced.
A silicone-based product is used in calf implants to enhance the calf area. Plastic surgeons are the only ones who can perform calf augmentation surgeries. Calf implants might be right for you if you're concerned about the appearance of your lower legs. It is also possible for people with injuries or disabilities to undergo this type of surgery. When it comes to calf implants, men and women are treated equally.
Implants used for calf augmentation generally fall into two types. These are:
Calf implants made from silicone gel are available in symmetrical sizes and are generally preferred for cosmetic applications. As these implants use a cohesiveve gel, leakage is eliminated.
In certain cases, patients can feel these implants, depending on where they are placed. A patient can customize and carve these according to his or her preferences. Carves are given greater definition with these.
Anesthesia is administered as the first step. Local anesthesia is generally preferred over intravenous sedation. Depending on the reason for the procedure, the type of implant is chosen beforehand. Dr. Vinay Jacob takes measurements to determine the implant size A prone position (face down) is used throughout the surgery. Just under the knee, an incision is made through the skin and connective tissue covering the gastrocnemius muscle. In order to insert the implant, a small pocket is made between the connective tissue and the muscle. The leg is examined and sutured after insertion.
When the anesthesia wears off, you may have some pain. You will also have some redness and swelling after the surgery. You can expect to walk stiffly for the first week or so, but you are encouraged to gradually walk greater distances.
Normal walking starts to return during the second and third week after surgery. Activities such as running, biking, weight-lifting should be avoided until one or two months after surgery. Full return to normal activities usually occurs after four to six weeks.
Under normal circumstances, the results of your calf augmentation surgery will be long-lasting. Fortunately, significant complications from calf implants are infrequent. Your specific risks for calf implants will be discussed during your consultation.
