Can You Feel Calf Implants?

Can you feel calf implants
No you cannot feel calf implants in your legs.
Properly placed calf implants cannot be felt by the patient. Placement of the implants is very important because it defines the aesthetic balance of the legs. The implants get incorporated into the patient's body image to the point that patient's even forget they have had the calf augmentation surgery in the past. Routinely they have no restrictions after the initial healing of 6 weeks. Squatting, skiing, ice skating, crossing your legs and all activities done before can be resumed.To ensure the best results you should contact a board certified aesthetic plastic surgeon.
Can feel implants by touch, not spontaneously
Much like a breast implant, calf implants can be felt manually, but not when you are just "sitting around doing nothing." The discomfort will be the worst during the first couple of days, then it will subside for the next few, when it will feel like you did a heavy squat session the night before. After 6-8 weeks you can squat or cross you legs, and even run long distance if you like. The advantage of calf implants is that it will actually give you the pumped look of gastroc muslce as opposed to fat transfer which will only simply increase the girth.
