Calf Augmentation by Fat Injections
Calf augmentation by fat injections is a very safe procedure. But it is often not very effective. Fat does not survive very well in the calfs in many patients and it does not have the outer push that an implant does in my experience. It also takes a lot more fat to harvest to have enough to inject into the calfs.
Calf implants - with fat transfers
Thank you for asking about your calf fat transfers.
- Fat transfers can be done and are quite safe.
- The results are unpredictable - between 40-70% of the fat survives.
- You are likely to need 2-3 procedures to see a significant improvement.
Always consult a Board Certified Plastic Surgeon. Best wishes. Elizabeth Morgan MD PHD FACS
Calf Augmentation With Fat Transfer
Pictures would be helpful in assessing the abdomen to calf augmentation. Schedule an in-office consult with a board certified plastic surgeon to discuss the possible fat transfer procedure from your abdomen and also pros and cons of implants.
