Calf Implants in Bellevue
Do you wish your calves were stronger or more defined? Even if you never skip leg day, some men are unable to develop their calf muscles to their liking. Calf implants have helped many men look and feel more masculine at the gym, at work, and at home. Silicone calf implants can correct the appearance of thin or bowed lower legs, improve the overall look of the lower body, and create a more muscular appearance.
How is Calf Implant Surgery Performed?
Seattle cosmetic surgeon Dr. Sobel uses only advanced silicone implants for calf augmentation surgery. These soft yet solid implants are placed between the gastrocnemius muscle (the large muscle that forms the visible part of the calf) and the outer connective tissue fascia. Implants are generally not placed under the muscle due to the important nerves and blood vessels that exist there. The operation usually takes about two hours and Dr. Sobel can work with you to determine the anesthesia method that’s best for you.
What is Recovery Like?
After surgery, compression stockings are recommended for the next 2-3 weeks. Post-surgery activities are generally limited for the first six weeks, although patients can stand for brief periods of time after the first 24 hours.
It is important to avoid to the gym and refrain from strenuous activity for the first few months following calf implant surgery. After your procedure, Dr. Sobel will explain all of the important safety information or aftercare instructions you’ll need to achieve long-lasting surgical success.
Who is a Good Candidate for Calf Implants?
Men who desire stronger or more chiseled calves often find Bellevue calf implant surgery to be an effective way to achieve their goals. It is important that patients be in good overall health and have a realistic sense of how calf implants can improve their physique. Body builders are especially good candidates for calf implants, since strong, muscular legs can offer weight lifters a competitive edge.
