Is it dangerous? What are the possible consequences?
Partial resection of Gastrocnemius muscle?
I am not familiar with partial resection of the gastrocnemius muscle. Most patients who desire balance and symmetry to the calf muscles will usually augment rather than weaken or resect any of the calf muscles. Always do your homework and follow the advice of your Plastic Surgeon. If in doubt get several opinions.
Good luck to you.
