Calf Augmentation Los Angeles
The popularity of calf augmentation Beverly Hills among both men and women has soared in recent years as people are becoming more aware of the existence of this cosmetic surgery procedure. I am frequently told by consulting patients that, "If I knew that there was such a procedure to augment my calves with implants, I would have done it years ago."
Why people get calf implants?
|"I always thought that only bodybuilders get their calves done, until I found that my friend had them done. They look very natural and sexy. Now she is always wearing skirts and showing off her legs. I am very happy for her and am considering having my calves augmented as well."
— Alma, age 32
Men and women have different reasons for wanting to have their calves augmented. Men who work out and have a well-built upper body, often are ashamed of their "chicken legs" or "bow legs." They are often frustrated by not being able to build-up their lower body and calves in proportion to their upper body. They also want to show off their "pumped" body in tank tops but feel uneasy about wearing shorts. On the other hand, there are those who seek calf augmentation Beverly Hills as a means of restoring calves that have lost volume as a result of congenital or physical defects such as Polio, Spina Bifida, and Club Feet.
The reason women get calf augmentation is to get curvaceous and sexy legs. This becomes more of an issue when they wear high heels, because the calves become most noticeable then. They want to show off their silky and smooth legs, which have all the right curves. It’s all about body language.
The Calf Augmentation Procedure
The placement of calf implants usually involves a similar procedure, although each procedure requires a high level of expertise to place the implants correctly. During your consultation, Dr. Younai will usually measure your calves in order to help determine the appropriate size of your implants. Calf augmentation surgery is usually performed under general anesthesia. The implants are inserted through incisions in the back of the knees. Both the skin and the fascia – the fibrous material covering the muscle – are cut. A pocket is then created between the fascia and muscle in order to hold the implant. This pocket must be secure and able to hold the implant without moving. Implants can be used to enhance the appearance of the medial belly of the muscle, the lateral belly, or both. Once the implants are placed and inspected, the incisions are closed.
Aesthetic Goals of Calf Augmentation?
|"I always avoided wearing shorts or going to the pool with friends because of my ‘chicken legs.’ No matter how hard I worked out, I just couldn’t develop my calves. After calf augmentation, I am no longer self-conscious about my calves."
— Joe, age 34
Most people want their calves to look natural, full, and curvaceous. In many men, the overwhelming emphasis is to augment the size and bulk of the calves in order to make them look as if you have worked out. Looking at the legs from the front, the medial (inner) belly of the Gastrocnemius muscle needs to look full-bodied and strong. Looking from the side, the Lateral (outer) belly of the Gastrocnemius muscle is mostly visible, and its augmentation contributes to forming the curve and flow of the leg. In women, this feature is usually more important, but the ultimate goal is to achieve a natural balance.

“I have always considered myself a really health-conscious person. I’m at the gym five days a week and I maintain a healthy diet. But, even though I work out my legs just as much as my upper body, I always felt like I was a little disproportionate. It started to bother me so much that I was avoiding trips to the beach and the river, just so I wouldn’t have to wear shorts. Dr. Younai changed all of that. My calves look great now, and I find myself showing them off at every opportunity.”

Calf Augmentation Recovery
During the first two days following surgery, the patient will generally have some trouble walking more than short distances. The legs should be kept elevated most of the time in order to reduce swelling and discomfort. After this period, the patient is encouraged to walk around as much as is tolerable in order to allow the legs to adjust to the feel of the new implants and let the skin stretch to accommodate the implants. Vigorous activities, including running and heavy lifting, should be avoided for at least four to six weeks. Dr. Younai can recommend the best course of action for your specific recovery.
