Who Are The Best Candidates? Calf implants (calf augmentation) are a procedure to increase the size and shape of the calf. Many people are dissatisfied with the shape/size of their calf muscles to the point that they avoid wearing garments that expose their legs. In these instances, even intensive exercise may not significantly enlarge the calf muscles, particularly in relation to one’s larger thigh muscles. Calf implants can also be used to correct deformities resulting from injury or nerve diseases that result in muscle deterioration. Such deformities include, polio, club foot, spina bifida. Calf implants using solid, soft silicone implants addresses these problematic areas.
Men and women seek calf implants for different reasons. While men typically seek an appearance that emphasizes the bulk of the calf muscle, women usually desire calf implants for purposes of anatomical balance, where the lower leg is sculpted to be more proportionate to the thighs. Bodybuilders traditionally seek to improve the dynamics of this hard-to-develop muscle group. The difficulty for body builders arises from the location of the muscle 'belly' in relation to the bone insertion. Simply stated, depending on the proximity of the belly of the muscle in relation to the knee and ankle, one can spend a lifetime working on muscle development and show little results. Usually, those individuals with a high muscle belly, often called a high insertion, have great difficulty in building calf mass, because of the lack of striated muscle in the area. Those with a low insertion can usually achieve more mass, but lack the definition that often accompanies the high insertion muscle type. Fortunately, calf implants can solve both scenarios by adding both mass and definition.
A critical element in determining the right size and shape is based on the skill of the surgeon who can assess the proportions correctly, and properly sculpt and place the implant, thereby anticipating any changes after the surgery. Generally, anyone in average physical condition or good health can be a candidate for calf implant surgery.
