What Can I Do to Reduce the Muscles on my Forearms and Calves?
Doctor Answers 2
Reduce muscle of forearms and calves
- I know of no home remedies,
- If the size is from fat (and it can be fat not muscle) liposuction will help,
- Nerves can be trimmed and/or nerves to the muscles cut - these are riskier and results may be asymmetric. Best wishes.

Although reduction of the calf muscles by way of partial neurotomy (partial cutting of the nerve to the calf) is a known successful procedure, I am not aware of anything similar and safe for the forearms. For the calf reduction, a couple small <1 inch long incisions are used to find the nerve behind the knee and then the nerve is patially cut so as to atrophy (shrink) the muscles over 6 -12 months but function of the muscles remain. Hope this helps...RAS
