What Is Calf Augmentation?

Calf augmentation techniques were originally developed to restore leg contour for individuals with certain medical conditions, such as polio and club foot, who tended to have contracted calf muscles. Calf Augmentation techniques include surgical implants as well as fat grafting to the calf. Both procedures can produce a comfortable, natural-looking, and visually pleasing result. Implants are made of FDA-approved silicone and come in various shapes and sizes to suit the body type of the patient. Leif Rogers, MD proudly serves patients from Pasadena, Beverly Hills, and anywhere else in the world. If you’re interested in learning more about what we can do for you, reach out to our Beverly Hills office and set up your consultation today.

Who Qualifies for Calf Augmentation?

Calf augmentation is a surgical procedure that is recommended for individuals who are dissatisfied with the size or shape of their calves. If you feel as though you have genetically thin or asymmetric calves, have experienced injury or disease, or desire a more toned appearance to the lower leg, calf augmentation with Dr. Rogers may be ideal for you. Candidates should be in good general health, have good skin quality and elasticity, and not have any underlying medical conditions that could increase the risks associated with surgery.

To learn whether or not you’re a great candidate for calf augmentation in Beverly Hills & Pasadena with our team, we recommend setting up an initial consultation with Dr. Leif Rogers, MD, FACS. During this meeting, he’ll help you explore the details of the procedure and can also help you learn about the other surgical and non-surgical options we offer at our practice. This will help us ensure that we’re going to be able to create results that truly fly above and beyond your expectations, so you can enjoy all the satisfaction and self-confidence that comes along with them.

The Calf Augmentation Procedure

Calf augmentation can be performed under different types of anesthesia, with the two main types being general anesthesia and local anesthesia. During the lead-up to your procedure, Dr. Rogers will work with you to decide which type of anesthesia is right for you before explaining the details of your procedure to you so you know exactly what to expect.

Generally, the surgery takes around one to two hours to complete, with the exact length of the procedure varying according to the specifics of your treatment plan. During the surgery, Dr. Rogers will make incisions according to your treatment plan before inserting the implants that will be used to create your exciting calf augmentation results.

Fat Transfer Calf Augmentation

Fat transfer calf augmentation enables Dr. Rogers to enhance your calves without the use of artificial implants. This process starts with liposuction, which will be used to remove excess fat from a donor area that has plenty to spare (typically the back, hips, or stomach). Once this donor fat has been purified and prepared, it will be injected into your calves, where it will enhance their shape and definition. Beyond the very small incisions that will be used for the liposuction part of the procedure, this process is far more minimally invasive and doesn’t involve any significant post-surgical scarring.

Your Recovery Process

After your calf augmentation, you’ll be able to return home to begin your recovery process, as the surgery is an outpatient procedure. You’ll need a friend to drive you home, as you won’t be able to drive while your anesthesia is in the process of wearing off.

After surgery, you can expect a recovery period of several weeks to a few months. Most patients can return to work and normal daily activities within two to four weeks but should avoid heavy lifting and strenuous exercise for at least four to six weeks.

Dr. Rogers has extensive experience serving patients in Pasadena, Beverly Hills, and just about everywhere else in the world. If you’d like to learn more about what calf augmentation can do for you, reach out to our Beverly Hills office and set up your initial consultation today.
