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.

OUR CLIENTS' REVIEWS

I had the best experience at Dr. Bachilo’s office!
Bellaire, TX

I decided to try Coolsculpting for the first time on my chin. I was a bit nervous to have the procedure to get rid of my double chin, but OMG I can already see it working! Dr. Bachilo was awesome! She explained how everything works, what the machine does and the sensation I would experience during and after the treatment. I’ve made my appointment to do Coolsculpting on the belly next.

Great doctor
Houston, TX

Last month I went in to see Dr. Bachilo to get Dysport injections for my wrinkles and fillers in my cheeks and chin. I was very worried as it was my first time having this procedure done, I didn't know what to expect but Dr. Bachilo was very patient with me she took her time explaining and answering all my questions she made me feel very comfortable.

Wow! I am so pleased with Dr.Bachilo’s expertise!
Houston, TX

I was so thankful for her honesty and knowledge of products/procedures that I was wanting to have done. She guided me to the correct breast implant size and recovery was a breeze. When it came to my concern of wrinkles and lines she was extremely understanding and actually listened to me. She explained the different fillers and Botox products, which I am so pleased in everything she did to make me look younger!!! I have recommended her to several friends and will continue to do so!! Just go and she how wonderful she is!

Exceeded my expectations
Sugar Land, TX

I believe it is essential to find a professional who is in tune with patients’ needs, responsive, can perform the necessary measures and do what is best for the client without heavily promoting additional services. Dr. Bachilo not only met my meticulous expectations, but also exceeded, so I will be back as needed.

Facial Fillers
Houston, TX

I hated wrinkles on my forehead, and nasal labial folds. I had filler injected around nasal labial folds and around corner of my mouth. Botox injection into my forehead. I couldn't be happier with the results. After many comments about why I look so much younger I will definitely have it done again.
