About

Calf Implants

The calves are a prominent part of the leg; however, cosmetically neglected. Having strong and toned calves enhances the shape of the legs making them appear fit and contoured. But, some people are not blessed in this area and tend to have quite skinny legs. This affects the overall appearance of the legs. Also, this can be a cause of embarrassment for many as they shy away from wearing shorts or skinny jeans. 

Vanity Cosmetic Clinic offers a solution to this issue to have perfectly toned calves which accentuate the legs giving them a taut and muscular appearance through Calf Implants.

What Is

A Calf Implant Surgery?

Often referred to as calf augmentation, calf implants help to counter the issue of having skinny or thin legs. They are also used in order to correct any birth deformities, injuries due to accidents or even issues like polio and clubfoot. These can adversely affect daily activities like walking or running and calf implant surgery helps to improve these conditions.

This surgery is also preferred by bodybuilders and models to have perfect shapely legs which they desire.

What Are The

Types Of Implants Used For The Surgery?

For calf augmentation, generally two types of implants are used. They are as follows:

  • Silicone-gel implants :
    Silicone-gel calf implants are available in symmetrical sizes and are generally preferred for cosmetic purposes. The gel used in these implants is cohesive and hence this cancels out the risk of leakage.
  • Solid silicone implants :
    These are slightly more solid and can be felt by the patient in certain cases, based on the implant’s placement. These can be customized and carved according to the patient's preference. These give a dramatic definition to the calves.

The types of implants are decided according to the patient’s unique case during the consultation. Hence, Dr Santosh Bhatia of Vanity Cosmetic Clinic prioritizes one-on-one consultation.

Ideal Candidate for Calf Implant Surgery?
