Some people have big, muscular calves. Others not so much. But living in Southern California, itâ€™s hard to feel that your calves are funny looking in some way. After all, weâ€™re in shorts and swimsuits all the time!
And for many people no matter how many squats they do, their calves will never develop. This can be due to simple genetics, disease, or injury.
But you can have bigger, more developed calves with calf implant surgery from Dr. Ip.
Ever heard someone called â€śchicken legs?â€ť How about â€śstick legs?â€ť Itâ€™s no fun having skinny, undefined calves, especially as a man. Genetics, injuries, and certain diseases can lead to the calves never becoming fully defined. They are still functional, just not aesthetically pleasing. And this is an issue of self-confidence, leading the person to avoid wearing shorts and other summer clothing that exposes their lower legs.
What is calf implant surgery?
Calf implants are silicone implants that are placed in the calf region to enhance the size and look of your calves. The implants are placed through a small incision made by Dr. Ip behind the knee in the subfascial layer of the calve muscle. You have two choices, usually depending on the shape of your calves. The implants can be placed on the medial (inner) or lateral (outer) calves, depending on where you feel the deficiencies are. After implants, your legs are more proportional and defined, giving you more self-confidence to lead an outdoor California life.
Have you tried to develop your calves to no avail? Maybe itâ€™s time to discuss calf implants with Dr. Ip. Schedule a consultation in his Newport Beach office by calling 949-548-0300.
