Get some shape into the hardest muscle to grow

Genetically, the calf muscle is hardest to build and grow. No matter how hard you try, you are stuck with the calf muscles your parents gave you. This being said it’s no wonder why Calf Augmentation surgery is becoming so popular, especially amongst body builders and athletes.

Similar to Breast Augmentation surgery, I will dissect a pocket in the calf and place a silicone prosthesis of pre-discussed size into place and voila – a brand new, shaped calf muscle.

The incision is behind the knee and is slightly painful to recover from, but the scars heal well and the resulting confidence is clear to see. The most unfortunate thing about undergoing a Calf Augmentation is the downtime – as I said it is usually the gym goer that undergoes this surgery and sitting still is hard to do. For the coach potato, undergoing a Calf Augmentation would be pretty easy going.

We will discuss the risks of the surgery and the risks of getting back to exercising too soon post-surgery during the consultation but if you follow the guidelines then there is a great patient satisfaction.

The surgery is done in theatre under general anaesthetic and takes about 60 minutes depending on the size of the implants. I generally prefer you to spend the night in hospital as a precaution.
