Calf Augmentation with Fat
The desire for defined calves is strong for both women and men. Many people work out their calves until they are lying, cramped up on the gym floor-yet they still cannot develop defined calf muscles. Even trained bodybuilders may have trouble developing calf muscles that are proportionate to the rest of their body. That is where calf implants come into play. And you do not just have to be a bodybuilder to get these implants to make your legs look good. They are also beneficial for men and women who have suffered an injury or a neurological disease, such as polio or spina bifida, that has caused the calf muscles to deteriorate. Another benefit is the correction of the condition known as “bow legs” or “bowed legs.”

Calf Augmentation with Fat Grafting
Calf augmentation can be successfully performed with your own fat. This technique is accomplished by Fat Transfer. The results can be extremely natural. Because the procedure uses unwanted fat from your own body, there is no chance of rejection. The only drawback with this technique is that the amount of implanted fat that will remain cannot be predicted. Fortunately, there are proprietary techniques that have been developed to assure approximately 90% retention using platelet rich plasma (PRP). The use of PRP is common in many surgical procedures as it enhances healing and wound regeneration. PRP is prepared from your own blood during the first few minutes of the surgery.
Fat transfer technique is not associated with any of the risks associated with the use of a solid implant. There is minimal scarring and postoperative discomfort. You will need to wear a specially designed garment for about three to four weeks. You will be able to walk immediately after surgery, and may return to work in about three to five days. After about two to four weeks, you will be able to return to the gym.

How Does Calf Augmentation With Fat Grafting
the procedure is performed by removing fat from one or more areas on the body by means of a syringe and a very small cannula (needle) and then, by means of injection, adding fat cells mixed with the patient’s own stem cells to the area of the leg where volume and muscle mass is lacking. This procedure for calf augmentation with fat produces improved balance and better proportions to the legs with permanent results and without scars.
What are the benefits of Calf Augmentation with Fat Grafting?
This procedure is superior to the silicone calf implants in many ways: there are no scars, no difficulty in walking, minimal discomfort, rapid return to work, placement of the fat can be done to any area of the leg, chance of infection is almost nil, bleeding is almost nonexistent, no displacement of the fat is ever noted as compared to the calf implants, which can become displaced and show through the skin. Best of all, the results look natural.
Fat Calf Augmentation allows women to wear skirts, which they could not have done before. Men will wear shorts without the fear of having skinny legs. Many patients can return to work the very next day with no or minimal discomfort requiring no post-operative pain medications in the majority of patients. The gym is allowed in just 7 days and being on the beach and swimming is OK in about one week.
