Calf Implants in Phoenix, AZ
The Body Sculpting Center offers calf implants to calf implants residents of Scottsdale, Phoenix and the surrounding areas in Arizona.
The calves can be a difficult body part for both men and women to develop as calves often do not respond well to work-outs. Calves are also prone to being affected by deteriorating disorders. Small calves can make wearing shorts or bathing suits a touchy, and sometimes embarrassing, subject. Many body builders have trouble developing calf muscles that are proportionate to the rest of their physique. One solution is a body procedure known as calf implants. Calf implants can be used to balance out the legs’ shape and give them a more appealing contour. Calf implants, like other body procedures, can also be used to bring back a normal appearance to victims of deteriorating diseases and injury.
Calf implants are solid, rubbery soft silicone shapes that are placed in pockets overlying the patient’s own calf muscles. Calf implants come in a variety of sizes so that an implant can be chosen that best compliments the shape of the leg. The calf implant is placed via a small incision in the back of the knee. Usually, two implants are placed in each leg over the gastrocnemius muscle.
Calf Implant Procedure Recovery
Remember to keep your activity level to a bare minimum for five to seven days after calf implants surgery. Because of postoperative pain and swelling, walking is much more comfortable in heeled shoes during the initial healing period. Most patients find that they can function normally after four to six weeks.
Use a footstool or a lounge chair to elevate your legs as much as possible. This will help to minimize the swelling and discomfort after your calf implants surgery.
Sutures are usually under the skin and dissolve on their own. A special tape is left on for 10 to 14 days.
Specific “As You Heal” Instructions
You may return to sedentary work one week after your calf implants surgery. If your work involves heavy activity, wait about three weeks or until the pain becomes minimal. Do not begin aerobic or strenuous exercise for at least three weeks. Let your body tell you what it can tolerate.
Initially, walking in heels will be easier. As the swelling decreases, return to flatter shoes as it becomes tolerable.
Your calves will swell and feel tender. Wear compression stockings and/or Ace™ wraps for the first several weeks.
