What is calf correction?
Calf correction surgery enhances the shape and overall appearance of the lower leg. Surgeons use implants or a fat grafting technique to create visually pleasing calves and proportional legs which have long been known to be one of the crucial elements of an appealing physique. Some patients may opt for calf correction solely for the aesthetical purpose, while others may want to get rid of certain developmental deformities, congenital asymmetries, or deformities caused by a traumatic event.
What is the difference between thigh lift and inner thigh liposuction?
There are mainly two types of calf correction surgeries: calf augmentation or calf liposuction. Calf augmentation can be performed with silicone implants or with autologous fat injections. Both of those calf augmentation methods have several advantages and disadvantages.
Calf augmentation with silicone implants is a short, relatively easy surgery with long-lasting results and high satisfaction rates. However, calf implants might be felt after the surgery, and so, it may take several months for a patient to adjust to them.
Who is a good calf correction candidate?
Good calf correction candidates are both men and women. The ideal candidates should be otherwise healthy individuals who have a desire to improve the visual appearance of their calves. The candidates should have realistic expectations for the outcome of the surgery and know about the possible risks and complications which are associated with undergoing the surgery. There are usually two groups of patients who wish to have calf correction surgery.
In cosmetic procedures, the patients are usually in good physical shape but have naturally skinny or underdeveloped calves. There are a lot of bodybuilders who are in very good physical shape, but struggle to gain muscle mass in the calves. Calf correction surgery helps to achieve aesthetically pleasing thigh-to-calf proportions and give the person a well-balanced figure.
Preparing for surgery
Bear in mind that you should not smoke or consume any alcohol a month before and after the surgery.
You should also stop taking any herbal medications, and certain anti-inflammatory drugs, like aspirin or ibuprofen. Your doctor will provide more detailed information on safe and unsafe medications and their doses. A balanced diet is important for the quality of the skin and collagen synthesis, therefore consuming enough proteins, vitamins (C, A, and E), and minerals, such as zinc, is crucial for a faster recovery.
Before the surgery, you will have to take several laboratory tests, such as blood test, urinalysis, electrocardiogram (ECG), pregnancy test (for those women who might be expecting), and others.
For your stay at our clinic, choose comfortable clothes that are easy to put on and off. Opt for comfortable shoes that you can wear when leaving the clinic. Note that patients are asked not to eat or drink anything 8 hours before the surgery (this prevents regurgitation while under general anesthesia).
Possible surgery complications
More or less all surgeries are associated with some degree of risk. Calf correction is a safe procedure for most patients, but in very rare cases complications can arise. Surgery is associated with the risk of bleeding, hematoma formation, bruising, swelling, seroma formation (serous fluid accumulation under the skin), infection, or calf contracture. Surgery risk greatly depends on the patient’s lifestyle, habits and successful adherence to the doctor’s recommendations.
For the first 12-14 hours post-surgery, you will be mainly kept on bed rest. Do not worry about pain as you will have pain medication administered intravenously. Our professional medical team will take the best care of you.
For the first week post-op, you will have to wear a compression garment and for another 3-4 weeks – wear calf compression sleeves. If possible, ask someone to stay with you for the first few days as it might be difficult to perform everyday tasks. Wound dressings can be taken down after 48 hours, and so, you will be able to take a shower or walk.
When at home, you should sleep with your legs elevated above the heart (you may place some pillows or adjust your bed position if possible). During recovery, you may experience slight discomfort or tightening sensations which usually disappear after the first two weeks post-op.
Rigorous movements and strenuous activities (e.g. going to the gym, or running) are strictly forbidden until 6 weeks post-op. You should get your doctor’s permission to resume heavy weightlifting, long-distance running, or intense sprint exercising.
