Calf implants for thin legs - in a golfer
- I am sorry you find yourself in this situation -
- You can have soft solid silicone implatns in your legs to give shape to the calves.
- Depending on the look you want, one or two implants are placed in each leg.
- The implants go directly over the calf (gastrocnemius) muscle.
- Typically the surgery is very painful for several weeks but with Exparel injections at surgery, there is usually little pain.
- The implants will only enlarge the upper 2/3rds of the leg, where the muscle sits.
- To thicken the lower leg, you can have fat injections done at the same time -
- These have less predictable results and often need to be repeated but are the only option for lower leg fullness.
- You will not be able to play golf for about 4 weeks after surgery.
- Not many plastic surgeons do calf implants -
- Since you are in Georgia, I would be happy to see you (I am in Atlanta) - just call my office!
- Always see a Board Certified Plastic Surgeon. Best wishes - Elizabeth Morgan MD PHD FACS
