Can I have laser hair removal on legs after calf augmentation?

I had calf implant surgery with 2 implants in each leg about 3 weeks ago. Would there be any issues with having laser hair removal done on my full legs once I heal from the surgery at about 3 months post op or later? Would there ever by any issues with having laser hair removal on this area after having calf augmentation surgery?

Thanks for our question. There is o contraindication after calf augmentation for laser hair removal. The only main concerns with laser hair removal are those related to skin color: darker skin tones need to be treated more cautiously. Good luck.
