I have the neurological disorder, CMT, which has left my calves very thin. I'm 37 now. I am considering getting this done, but would like to know if implants would look normal on my calves considering the CMT.
Is Calf Augmentation Worth It for CMT (Charcot Marie-tooth Disease) Sufferers?

Correction of thin legs with Calf Implants
Charcot-Marie-Tooth disease (CMT) causes loss of muscles, as you have in your calves.
Fat transfers require you to have excess fat and they absorb in time.
Given your photos, two very small soft silicone calf implants in each leg should give you a nice result - if you can accept significant but subtle improvement.
Your surgeon should discuss this with your neurologist first - to be sure every physician helping you agrees with the surgical plan.
