The Benefits of Calf Augmentation
Men and women who spend a lot of time and energy exercising may become frustrated when they do not attain the results they expect and desire. Achieving sculpted and defined lower legs can be particularly challenging, as many patients experience difficulty improving the shape of their calves regardless of their exercise routines. Fortunately, calf augmentation can give you prominent yet natural looking thighs for a more athletic and proportionate figure.
The benefits of calf augmentation may include:
- Toned and shapely lower legs
- Improved body symmetry
- Increased confidence wearing clothing such as shorts or swimsuits
With fat transfer for calf augmentation, we use your own fat from a donor site such as the abdomen or thighs and then gently inject the purified fat into the calf muscles. As an added advantage, you may achieve a more contoured figure at the donor site, such as the abdomen, thighs, or love handles. Though the risks associated with fat transfer are minimal, the body typically absorbs a portion of the injected fat and you may require multiple treatments to obtain the results you desire. After surgery, you should expect to feel some soreness and stiffness, though most patients return to their normal daily activities within 3-7 days. We recommend, however, that patients wait six weeks before resuming any vigorous exercise. At that point, you can fully enjoy the improved definition of your lower body.
