I am a mid-30's male who has been on active duty in the military for 17 years. I am physically active and athletic, and my activities include hockey, softball, running, and weight lifting. My entire life, my calves were very small and out of proportion with the rest of my body, to the point... READ MORE

After years of hiding my legs in jeans, long dresses and skirts, I've decided to do something about my chicken legs! I've never liked my stick legs for as long as I can remember. I'd even wear wear leg warmers under my jeans and stuff them with socks for girth! Funny thing is I still do! That's... READ MORE

I had my calf impl surgery more than a month. I decided to do because i had a thinner leg and decided to correct the difference. My doctor promised he would be fine and more self-confidence. The postoperative period was very HARD, i have lucky to have my mother and girlfriend to help me! not... READ MORE

My whole experience was amazing and I’m so glad that I chose Dr. Augenstein to do my calf augmentation. I always feel very well cared for there. The building is beautiful, wait time is very short, staff is super friendly and helpful, and anesthesiologists and nurses are all great and very... READ MORE

I always hated my skinny calves. I work out seriously and routinely and having muscular calves which match the rest of my body was always important to me. I just could not get my calves developed no matter how much I worked out. I started researching about calf enlargement on google and later I... READ MORE

I did a lot of research before making the plunge! The total cost was around $6400!! My calf muscles had wasted away due to the neuromuscular disease CMT (Charcot-Marie-Tooth.) I did not expect a huge change, but I admit that I was hoping for a more desirable result. There is only a small change.... READ MORE

So I got calf implants for about 2 weeks ago and I loved my results. I could see the difference right away. The last days I could already walk almost perfectly with no pain but I don't know what happened with my right leg now. I just took shower as normally and when I came out I was putting on...

I had calf replacement surgery with Dr. Gershenbaum of Aventura, FL. and I must say that my experience was OUTSTANDING! Beginning with Eyra, the patient coordinator who was very professional, nice and informative. She answered all of my questions and made me feel very comfortable about the whole... READ MORE

I had been dreaming of having this procedure my whole life but it was always either too expensive or too unrealistic, simply put out of my reach. When I found Dr. G. online I did some research and was very happy with the results but still felt somewhat hesitant until I met him in person. Dr. G... READ MORE

My journey began when I was a child with polio. I had leg length discrepancy on my left leg. After a corrective surgery, I was introduced to Dr. Payman Danielpour and Dr. John Layke for corrective calf implant for atrophy of muscles due to polio. Both Dr. Danielpour and Dr. Layke have shown... READ MORE

Hi, I'm a 33 year old African American woman, who likes to think she is realllly attractive. But there is one thing that causes me to have the lowest self esteem ever. My skinny calves and ankles. I can't afford the surgery right now, but if there are any surgeons who wants to offer their... READ MORE

I was extremely apprehensive about the procedure, general anesthsia, post-op experience. I almost did not go through with it. However, from the moment I spoke with Dr. Gershenbaum months ahead of the surgery, he inspired such confidence in me that I felt a bit more comfortable. I am thrilled... READ MORE

Since very young I struggled with the "chicken leg" situation. My body is in general very proportionate except for my calves. I've tried weight lifting all my life but the calf area muscle is just impossible to develop with weights. I had thought about going through with this procedure for... READ MORE

I am dermatologist in France and had fat grafting to calf by Dr. Leonard Grossman in NYC. Very skeptical at beginning, but many patients in clinic very happy. Doctor perform procedure for more than 15 years. I am more than 3 years i have surgery, results the same, perfect. I run every day.... READ MORE

Surgery was scheduled and completed in less then 3 weeks and process went very smoothly Instant results- from the moment I woke up, I could... READ MORE

I simply had to write a review on Dr Sam Gershenbaum. He did liposuction and calf implant surgery on me about 5 months ago, and i must say that he is that perfectionist that people say and i read about on the internet. I came to see Dr Gershenbaum from New York. He was very attentive and... READ MORE

I had my calf implants done about a year and a half ago and I wish I had done it sooner. Love my results. I can finally wear shorts! Dr. Gershenbaum and his staff were very helpful and professional and answered all my questions. The recovery was pretty easy too. I'd recommend him to... READ MORE

Hi there, I am in the process of recovering from calf implants done (7 days in) and according to my private surgeon everything went to plan however, due to the placement of incision and the implants it is clear that there has been no improvement on the inside of my calfs. Also, the surgeon... READ MORE

It's a stupid procedure. Minimal difference in shape, ugly, highly visible scar that screams "i've had a calf implant", horrible pain afterward, painful swelling and drainage issues, tightening and numbness of the skin--it feels awful to lose feeling and sensation. Post plastic surgery... READ MORE

I had been contemplating calf implant(s) surgery for a while. I did my research on the procedure, but I knew the most important aspect of this surgery was finding a well qualified/experienced plastic surgeon. Finding a Midwest Plastic Surgeon that performs calf implant surgery proved to be a... READ MORE
