Calf Augmentation surgery by Miami's Dr Mendieta is a procedure used to increase the size and improve the shape of the calf. In people with a shrunken lower leg, as a result of injury or disease, an implant can be inserted in the calf to help minimize the resultant deformity. Despite the fact that actual leg function has not been improved, most surgeons consider this reconstructive surgery as the goal is to help restore a more normal appearance.
On the other hand, some people have a naturally thin or underdeveloped calf which leg remains small in spite of diet and exercise. These patients may request calf augmentation for pure aesthetic or cosmetic reasons. Women may want only the medial or inner leg filled out while body builders may opt to have both the inner and outer lower leg filled out.
Calf augmentation usually is performed by placing an implant made out of silicone rubber over the muscles, on the medial aspect of the calf. Some people, such as body builders, may require a larger augmentation, and in these individuals an implant may be placed on both the medial (inner) and lateral (outer) aspects of the calf.
