Calf implant

Calf Implant (ISAPS)

Procedure:

Improves the size and appearance of the calf area of the leg by inserting a silicone implant producing a cosmetic enhancement.

Length:

Approximately one and a half hours.

Anesthesia:

General anesthesia, epidural blockage, or intravenous sedation and local anesthesia are used.

Inpatient/Outpatient:

This is an outpatient procedure.

Possible Side Effects:

Mild to moderate temporary discomfort and swelling, mild bruising.

Risks:

The implant may need to be removed and/or replaced to treat problems including: implant rupture, formation of scar tissue around the implant (capsular contraction), which may cause the calf to feel tight or hard, bleeding, infection and implant misplacement.

Recovery:

The patient must wear a compression bandage for 2 weeks after the surgery and do no exercise for several weeks. The patient should not consume alcohol after surgery. Alcohol consumption may be resumed after three weeks. Bruising and swelling should be gone after several weeks.

Results:

The outcomes vary from patient to patient; however, the overall effect is the enhancement of the calf size for an improved appearance.
