OVERVIEW

What Are Calf Implants?

Calf Enlargement provides a solution for individuals with underdeveloped calf muscles that won’t bulk up with training. Fortunately, you can increase volume and definition to add contour to your legs using soft silicone implants that provide the look and feel of natural muscle.

Calf implants are silicone implants that are used in calf augmentation procedures to enhance contour and muscle tone in the calves and legs. Implants come in various shapes and sizes, and may be inserted in sets of two or four, in order to provide a truly customized fit for each patient. Dr. Bachilo will help you select the most natural looking calf implant combination for your legs.

If you’re searching for calf augmentation with implants in Houston and nearby areas, Glamour Plastic Surgery and Med Spa, led by trusted plastic surgeon Dr. Olga Bachilo, provides this procedure for her patients in Houston, Bellaire, Pearland, Katy, Sugar Land, Woodlands and nearby areas.

BENEFITS

What Are the Benefits of Calf Implants?

When no amount of training has produced a significant increase in muscle volume in your calves, it may be time to consider calf augmentation. Calf implants can add volume and contour to flat, undeveloped calf muscles, adding the volume you need to fill out your lower legs.  In patients who are built larger on top with legs that appear too thin for their body weight, calf augmentation with implants can dramatically improve the appearance of the leg contour and restore balance and proportion to the person’s overall appearance.  Calf implants look and feel like natural muscle.

PROCEDURE

What Does the Procedure Involve?

The implants are inserted by means of a simple surgical procedure that uses small incisions camouflaged in the leg’s natural contours. The implants are inserted through these incisions, and positioned on top of the natural calf muscles under the skin, where they subtly enhance muscular definition and improve the overall leg contour.

RECOVERY

How Long Is the Recovery Period After a Calf Augmentation?

While each patient is different and recovery rates vary between individuals, after a calf implant surgery, a recovery period applies during which you must avoid using the calf muscles for about a week, and you should plan ahead to have help with basic care during this period, as you will need to be off your feet as much as possible. Calf augmentation directly impacts the lower leg muscles that we use to stand, sit, walk, climb stairs, and perform a host of other essential daily activities.  For this reason, crutches may be useful during the first 5-7 days following your surgery.  You may be able to walk normally after 7-14 days, depending on the type of surgery you have, but you must avoid strenuous leg exercises for a period of 3-4 weeks.  Dr. Bachilo recommends that you hold off on physical activities involving the lower leg for as long as 8-10 weeks, because there is a risk of seroma formation, or fluid accumulating around the implants, which may occur as a consequence of exercising too soon. This condition can become chronic, so it is especially important to allow the legs to rest and heal correctly and properly after the calf augmentation procedure. You may be advised to wear compression stockings for about 6-8 weeks and walk gently around the house in order to prevent the formation of clots in the legs.  Any soreness, aching, or discomfort following the procedure may be managed with pain medications.

Megan Shea

Dr. Bachilo is an incredible doctor and has a very friendly and kind personality. I had been to many plastic surgeons and none made me feel comfortable and respected the way she did when talking with her. I will continue to see her no matter where I am in the U.S. - Google

Dr. Bachilo is excellent bedside manner.
cathouston

Dr. Bachilo performed this procedure on me in March 2019. I am a 50-year-old female, 5‘4“, 170 pounds. Dr. Bachilo removed 10 L of fat, which is a very aggressive surgery. I felt comfortable with her, and asked her to push the limits, which she did. I spent the night in the hospital as a precaution as my blood pressure dropped and needed to be stabilized and monitored. Dr. Bachilo is excellent bedside manner. She checked on me several times during the day and night before I left. I am now 8 days post-op and pleased with the results. - RealSelf

She has been wonderful
Lindsey Coats

Dr. Bachilo has now completed an arm lift and thigh lift for me. She has been wonderful with me through both procedures and her work is remarkable. I have asked a lot of her throughout both procedures that are difficult enough without me asking her to go above and beyond. She continues to deliver truly incredible results. - Google

I Am so Thankful We Found Olga!
Elvira V.

I am so thankful we found Olga! She has changed my life! I've gotten breast augmentation with Olga, I went to 3 different surgeons for a consultation and the moment I met Olga my mom and I both knew she was the one. She was so personal, warm and made me feel like my concerns were her priority! She was always there for me, before and after the surgery. Answering my late night texts and making sure I was in a good place. My mom has also gotten treatments at their med spa and she couldn't be happier with her results. All the staff are very sweet, kind and welcoming! I would highly recommend this place! - Yelp
