Calf implant surgery in Los Angeles is a viable option for men to enhance both the volume and definition of the calf muscles. Dr. Douglas Steinbrech and the Male Plastic Surgery Network offer specialized calf implant surgeries for male patients. The soft silicone implants are customized to fit each patient’s leg during the surgery, and over-implementation risks are evaluated by considering the entire body. Silicone calf implants are specifically designed for men to enhance muscle definition and improve leg contours.
What Are Calf Implants?
Calf implants are a form of silicone implants designed to enhance the appearance of a man’s the lower leg. The procedure involves the insertion of soft silicone implants into the calf muscle, creating a more defined and muscular look. Men who have trouble achieving a desired calf shape through exercise may opt for calf implants as a solution, as it is a common muscle group that patients find challenging to build. Each implant is customized to fit the patient during surgery, and careful evaluation of the patient’s entire body is important to select an appropriate size and avoid over-implementation.

Who Is a Good Candidate for Calf Implants?
A good candidate for calf implants for men is someone who is looking to enhance the appearance of their calves and has been unable to achieve the desired results through exercise or other methods. Candidates should be in good overall health, have realistic expectations for the outcome of the surgery, and be willing to follow the postoperative care instructions provided by their surgeon. It is important to discuss your medical history and any current medications or health conditions with your surgeon to determine if calf implants are a suitable option for you.
How Does Calf Implant Surgery Work?
The calf implant procedure involves making an incision behind the knee and inserting the implant through small incisions to create more defined calf muscles. Calf implants can be used in reconstructive surgery to correct deformities or congenital defects. The implant is positioned behind the fascia and under the skin in front of the posterior muscles of the calves. (Similarly, Dr. Steinbrech can also use fat from the patient’s own body to increase calf size, avoiding the need for implant materials.)
The results are permanent, but patients should schedule follow-up appointments with their surgeon for safety reasons and to address any questions or concerns.
Calf Implant Recovery Time
After the calf implant surgery, patients are likely to experience soreness in their legs, but they will be encouraged to walk with assistance. Within three to five days, patients can begin walking, driving, and participating in low-stress leg activities. Three to four weeks after the surgery, patients can return to their regular gym workouts, including leg exercises.
