About Calf Implants
Board-certified Plastic Surgeon, Dr. Shlomo Widder offers calf implants for those who wish to enhance their lower legs. Sometimes, no matter how much you exercise, the calf muscles won’t bulk up past a certain point. This can cause the lower legs to look disproportionate to the rest of the leg, or the rest of the body. Calf implant surgery, also called calf augmentation, is a procedure that can help you achieve a more normal appearance. This is especially aesthetically pleasing if your lower leg muscles are underdeveloped, or if one of the lower legs is shrunken due to genetics or injury. Calf implants are also a popular cosmetic surgery choice of bodybuilders who want to enhance the appearance of their muscles even more, or ladies who want the inner leg filled out so their legs look straighter and more attractive. At Widder Cosmetic and Plastic Surgery Center in Vienna, VA, you will receive a personal consultation with Dr. Widder to determine the best course of treatment for your cosmetic goals and body type.

You are a great candidate for calf implants if you are in overall good health and:
- Desire a fuller calf appearance
- Have disproportionate lower legs
- Lack calf definition or muscle
What To Expect
Calf implant surgery is a personalized procedure. Therefore, results and implant sizes vary. Typically, silicone implants are used and inserted on the medial area of the calf to provide more definition. Incisions are made behind the knee to diminish the appearance of scarring. However, you will undergo a detailed medical examination to determine which implant size and shape are best for you. During this time, your doctor will also create a customized surgical plan that aligns with your cosmetic goals and desired outcome. Your body type will determine where and how the silicone implants sit, but your doctor will be sure to take this into consideration during treatment. Calf implant surgery is an outpatient procedure and commonly takes about 1 hour to complete.
There are two types of calf implant surgeries, the medial and inner. Typically, women desire either the medial or the inner because a single implant placement provides a subtle, smooth contour. Men and bodybuilders commonly seek both a medical and inner calf implant because it dramatically increases definition and fullness. Not only does calf implant surgery improve the shape and size of the calf but it brings proportionality as well. Strenuous activities such as, weight lifting, running, and hiking should be avoided for several months following your procedure. It’s also important to follow all post-operative care provided by your doctor. The end result creates a well-defined calf appearance.
