With calf prostheses, it is possible to obtain more smooth and more aesthetically pleasing legs. Placing a calf prosthesis is a procedure to increase the size and shape of the leg. Many women are not happy with their legs being too thin and they are afraid of wearing skirts. It is not possible to enlarge the leg muscles at the desired level, even with intensive exercise. The muscle behind the leg is two-headed. One head ends on the upper inner edge of the leg and the other on the upper outer edge of the leg.
Depending on the patient’s preference, this region can be shaped with oil injections. The fat from the other body parts of the patient can be clarified and the calf area can be further clarified. It is a permanent and natural method, but a few sessions may be required.
Calf prostheses can be performed under general anesthesia, epidural anesthesia or sedation supplemented local anesthesia
Calf prostheses are placed on the muscles in the desired area with small incisions made behind the knee. The prosthesis can be placed on either side of the leg or on both sides, depending on the individual’s preference. The operation lasts for 1-2 hours.
How much surgery does leave a trace?
If the prosthesis is to be placed, there is an incision on the back of the knee that opens as far as the prosthesis. After 1 year because of the knee behind the curves will not attract attention, but becomes less visible.
Risks and side effects of surgery
There is no special risk for this surgery. Apart from the general surgical risks, there may be a disorder in sensation in the surgical site. In the long run, reactions due to foreign body transport in the foot can be seen rarely.
Postoperative care and return to normal
Postoperatively, the legs are closed with elastic bandages. Resting at home and leg elevation are recommended. In the first days, it is recommended to get up only for personal needs. The return to normal may take 2 weeks.
