Lower Extremity Definition

When we consider the things we can achieve through cosmetic or aesthetic surgery, we often think about fixing the shape of the nose, making bellies flatter or thighs thinner, correcting droopy eyelids, or contouring the shape of the neck.

We don't generally think about the ankles and knees. But the fact is many people are unhappy with the way their legs look--from the bottom up. A straight line from the ankle to the knee, without much definition or shapeliness of the legs, bothers some female patients. Males sometimes complain that their calves simply don't respond to exercise.

An option to create definition is calf implant surgery. Young and middle age men and women who have undefined calf muscles are often candidates for this procedure, in which surgeons place the implant above the calf muscle to enhance muscle definition. To custom design the implants for each patient, the surgeon generally makes a mold of the calf muscles of each leg. An outpatient procedure, calf implant surgery involves making a small incision below the crease at the rear of the knee and inserting the implants. With time, the incision, which is well hidden because of its location, fades and becomes nearly invisible.

In most cases of lower extremity liposuction and calf implant surgery, patients can stand up and walk immediately after surgery, but should rest and elevate their legs as much as possible for the first week. And while patients must wear support hose for a few weeks after surgery, they can usually resume exercise and other activities after six weeks. The results are permanent and generally do not interfere with sports or weight lifting.
