Add Definition to Your Legs with Calf Implants
Calf implants can add more muscle definition to the lower legs. This body contouring treatment can help increase mass to make your legs appear more toned and proportional. Dr. Conrado Trapero places calf implants at his plastic surgery clinic in Mazatlán, Mexico. At Clínica Trapero, we exclusively use silicone implants for calf augmentations to achieve the most natural-looking results. Calf implants are a suitable treatment for both men and women who desire more muscle definition.
Benefits of Calf Augmentation
Patients with underdeveloped calves can add balance and proportion to their legs through calf augmentation. Implants can make your legs appear fuller, defined, and more muscular. Many patients find that augmenting their calves increases their self-confidence and allows them to wear clothing they previously avoided, such as shorts or swimsuits.
Explore Your Candidacy
Candidates for calf implants are men or women who would like to achieve more muscle definition. If you are interested in calf augmentation, candidates should be in good overall health and have realistic expectations. Calf implants can provide a more aesthetic result for individuals who:
- Want to emphasize the bulk of their calf muscles
- Desire more proportionate calves in relation to their thighs
- Have reached a plateau in calf development, and have not achieved the definition they desire
- Wish to correct lower leg defects resulting from injury, disease, or other conditions
You can discuss your cosmetic goals and needs with Dr. Trapero during an initial consultation. If he believes calf implants are not right for you, he may recommend an alternative contouring procedure.
Placing Your Implants
Calf augmentation is usually an outpatient procedure and typically takes about one hour to complete. At Clínica Trapero, we exclusively use silicone implants. They are shaped like extended teardrops to mimic the natural contour of your calf. Dr. Trapero can place your implants at a fully equipped local hospital to ensure your safety.
Our high-quality silicone implants produce natural-looking effects for better muscle definition.
During the procedure, Dr. Trapero will make small, inconspicuous incisions in the natural crease behind your knee. He will then create a pocket large enough to accommodate the implant, either in the upper inside or outside of the leg. Once the implants are in place, he will close the incision with sutures and place a bandage to reduce swelling and discomfort. Depending on your needs, Dr. Trapero can combine your procedure with liposuction to create a more defined appearance.
Your Recovery Timeline
We recommend that all our patients remain in Mazatlán for at least one week after their treatment. This allows us to closely monitor your progress and respond immediately in the event of complications. We can arrange for doctors to visit you in your hotel room during your stay.
Most patients are able to return to their normal activities within a few days of surgery. However, you should avoid vigorous physical exercise for about four to six months to help maintain the position of your implants.
You may experience bruising or swelling during the first few weeks of your recovery. Many patients also report a shiny appearance, which will fade as your skin stretches over the implants. As these postoperative symptoms diminish, you will begin to see your final results.
