Calf Augmentation

Calf Augmentation At A Glance

Calf augmentation or calf enhancement is a plastic surgery procedure to improve the shape and size of the calf in order to improve the proportions of the legs. Calf augmentation can help to bring harmony to the proportions of the body and give the legs a more balanced and defined appearance. At London Bridge Plastic Surgery & aesthetic Clinic, we have provided numerous patients with beautiful and natural-looking results from their calf augmentation in London.

Calf Augmentation Overview

There are two options available for enhancing the appearance of the calves. Calf enhancement through fat grafting is an option for patients who enhance the shape of their calves, so they have a more defined appearance. Fat is harvested from an area of the body with excess fat and then injected into the calves. Our team precisely manages the placement of the fat as well as the amount of fat being injected in order to give the calves an enhanced shape that looks as natural as possible.

Our London Calf augmentation involves using special implants that can add bulk to the calves and give them a more defined appearance. The procedure involves making an incision behind the knee along the natural creases in the skin. The implant is then inserted and carefully placed. The procedure is performed under general anesthesia and only takes an hour to complete.

During your consultation, Dr. Inglefield can let you know which procedure is the right choice for you and answer any questions you may have about the surgery. He can also let you know what the expected cost of your calf augmentation will be and let you know about the payment and financing options available to you.

Calf Augmentation Surgery FAQ’s
  • What are the benefits of Calf Augmentation Surgery?
    The calf should be in harmony with the rest of your leg and should have gentle curves which highlight your ankles and knees. Aesthetically balanced calf enhancement should be almost undetectable. This result can restore self-confidence and boost self-esteem.
  • Am I an ideal patient for Calf Augmentation Surgery?

    If you would like to improve your legs to achieve an aesthetically pleasing more balanced appearance of your calves then Calf Enhancement, Augmentation surgery is right for you. Calf Augmentation Surgery can correct deformities resulting from an injury or with which you were born or developed in adulthood. You should be realistic as to what can be achieved by Calf Augmentation surgery and understand the risks and side effects of this surgery.

  • What is the cost of Calf Augmentation?
    The cost for Calf Augmentation Surgery will vary depending on your individual case and includes your pre-operative and post-operative care. You will be provided with a detailed quotation following your Consultation
  • What if I am concerned about Calf Augmentation Surgery?

    At LBPS, we understand that your decision to have Calf Augmentation surgery can be a daunting and anxious time for you. Our aim is to fully understand your concerns and desires and to assess you accurately before agreeing on a treatment plan that is in your best interest. If for any reason you are unsuitable for Calf Augmentation surgery, you will be advised against this form of surgery. We will provide you with all the information you need and support before, during, and after your surgery.

  • How long is the recovery time?
    Mild pain/discomfort is expected for 5 – 7 days. Patients can go back to their normal daily activities after 2 weeks but should avoid strenuous exercise/activity for 6 weeks, including any contact sports.
  • What about the results?
    The results are first and foremost natural. The goals of Calf Augmentation surgery are to restore an aesthetically pleasing shape that is in balance with body shape – i.e. looks natural and does not appear abnormal. Remember it can take 6 weeks or more for the final result to be achieved.
  • What are the risks of Calf Augmentation Surgery?

    Common to all surgical procedures there are always risks associated with surgery. However, complications are uncommon. Bruising can occur and may take 2 weeks to resolve, while major bleeding is rare. Infection is infrequent (less than 0.5%) and will require a course of appropriate antibiotics. Displacement of the implants can occur in the early postoperative course. This is prevented by avoiding pressure on the legs or excessive movement. Some altered sensation around the legs is expected and will commonly return to normal between 6 to 12 weeks after surgery.

  • How long do the results last?
    The results of Calf Augmentation surgery are permanent but note that ageing changes will occur over the years.
Your Procedure
  • How is Calf Augmentation performed?

    Calf enhancement with fat transfer is performed under general anaesthetic as a day case and takes approximately 2 to 3 hours. Fat first needs to be harvested from areas where you would like fat to be removed. The fat is then prepared prior to injecting into the calf to achieve the optimum shape and size. Calf augmentation using implants is performed under a general anaesthetic as a day case and takes approximately 1 hour. An incision is made in the crease behind the knee and the implants inserted above the muscle of the calf.

  • Does Calf Augmentation Surgery require a general anaesthetic or hospitalisation?
    Calf augmentation surgery is performed under general anaesthetic, commonly as a day-case or overnight procedure depending on your individual needs.
  • How long is the procedure?
    Calf augmentation surgery normally takes approximately 1 hour to perform depending on the complexity of the surgery.
  • What about the scars following Calf Augmentation Surgery?
    The incisions are placed in the crease behind the knees and are therefore inconspicuous. These incisions heal well in 10 – 14 days.
  • Will a special garment be required after Calf Augmentation Surgery?
    Yes – post-surgery support bandages are fitted at the end of surgery to help control swelling and reduce movement post-operatively. This will be worn for 1-week post-op. You will then be provided with a tubular bandage to wear for the following 5 weeks post-operatively.
After suffering from a birth defect that left my right calf much thinner than the other, I went to Dr. Inglefield to create a more symmetrical appearance. The results were far better than I could have ever hoped for. After never wearing shorts or feeling comfortable exposing my legs, I have now booked 2 holidays and I’m rarely out of shorts. […] Plastic surgery is a major decision for anyone, but if you are going to do it, go to the best in the business. The best is Mr. Inglefield.
