Male Lower Leg Surgery (Calf Implants) in Dallas, TX*

58 Procedures ( View All )

Overview

Calf augmentation surgery with implants is a popular cosmetic procedure that helps strengthen the size and definition of the lower leg. It will also correct legs that show a visible calf deformation or an imbalance caused by injury or a medical condition. Dallas, TX cosmetic surgeon, Dr. Daniel Beck, offers this surgery, which uses flexible, solid silicone implants that are designed in a variety of shapes and sizes to fit the natural contours of the lower leg. After surgery, patients enjoy greater confidence because their legs have a more defined and muscular shape. This surgery is common among body-builders who desire greater-sized calves.

Surgical Technique

A common method used during this procedure places a silicone implant through a small incision made behind the knee. The implant is positioned into a pocket surgically created within the calf muscle. Depending on the desired result, a second implant may be placed alongside the first to give the calf greater shape. Surgical sutures close the skin. Following surgery, the implant will become enclosed by scar tissue. This is a natural implant process and helps the device stay in tact so it can remain in place for years.

During/After Surgery

Calf augmentation is an outpatient procedure performed under general anesthesia at an accredited surgical facility. The entire surgery typically takes about an hour per leg to complete. Patients will be released from the hospital and instructed to use crutches for a given period of time. Most individuals can resume normal activities within 6-12 days. Regular exercise can resume following surgeon release, which is often between 4-8 weeks. Most patients are pleased with their results and feel they have a stronger, more balanced lower body.

Expected Cost

The cost of calf augmentation surgery will vary slightly depending on the implant used and the number of implants it takes to attain the desired results. Most patients can expect to pay $3,500- $5,500 for a calf implant procedure.

Calf Augmentation FAQs

Benefits of Calf Augmentation?

Calf implant surgery is not only performed for aesthetics, but to help treat lower leg conditions and imbalances. Some of the issues calf implants can solve include:

  • Inability to achieve muscle definition
  • Lower leg muscle imbalances
  • “Skinny/chicken” legs
  • Polio
  • Spina Bifida
  • Lower leg injuries
  • Lack of calf tissue development

Visible Scars?

Scarring is very minimal with calf implant surgery because the incision is placed behind the knee. Even if the incision is placed on the front of the leg under the knee, scarring will be difficult to see.

How Long Will They Last?

With any cosmetic surgery involving the placement of an implant, the results can last for years. However, as an individual ages and the body naturally changes, the implants may no longer look or work the way they once did. At the appropriate time, a patient can choose to have the implant replaced or removed. Most implants are manufactured to last between 10-15 years.
