Individuals who want to add more definition to their calf muscle or enlarge their calf for a more balanced leg may be interested in calf implants. These implants, made of soft, solid silicone are available in a range of sizes and are suitable for both men and women.

Some so-called ‘permanent,’ or longer lasting, fillers are available, but involve injection of foreign body material, which may become lumpy or put the recipient at risk of infection. If complications do ensue, these fillers are difficult to remove and therefore are not recommended.

Calf implant surgery is usually performed as a day procedure. The surgeon will make an incision behind the knee and insert the implant. Patients will notice an effective difference immediately following surgery.
