Increased Prosthesis Twins
The growth of Twins is an intervention in which silicone gel implants are implanted in the calfs, in order to model the legs and increase the volume of the calfs. Typically carried out at both extremities by trying to achieve symmetry.
It is indicated in patients who are excessively thin, straight legs (without curves in the calfs). The results are excellent and so returns the harmonic outline of the legs.

Who needs it?
Patients who have excessively thin straight legs (no curve in their calf). the Calf implant is performed in both sexes males and females with equal success, patients seeking shape and volume is not achieved with exercising only not even using the most extreme and difficult exercises gives you the shape and volume desired. Women who have thick muscles and knees with relatively thin calves can be treated with a combination of implants such as with liposuction on the legs and knees.
Local anesthesia and sedation.
The area is measured where the prosthesis will remain lodged, according to the size of this and the anatomy of the patient is tagged and the pocket calculated ( the space to be dissected). the incision is made horizontal it is of about four centimeters, it is carried on the back of the knee. The prosthesis are introduced under the superficial fascia medial gastrocnemius muscle, so that it is included in the muscle structure which accompanies their movements with great ease. Then closed by planes and an intradermal suture.
Duration of intervention
It's fast, about 45 minutes.
The patient is placed with compression stockings and allowed immediate standing.
However, although the patient can walk after surgery, you should rest with your legs up to avoid excessive inflammation.
You can lead a normal life after 48 hours.
What risk is there?
Infection: Its appearance is very rare, because antibiotics are always used to prevent it.
Its appearance requires in most cases is to remove the prosthesis and wait several months before replacing it.
Displacement of the prosthesis: Due mainly to the exaggerated development of a pocket.
Hyperpigmentation of scars, either by the nature of the patient, or either by sun exposure, or ingestion of some drugs.
Scars hypertrophic and keloid: The scar may be of poor quality, extremely thick and slow to whiten in colour (HCM) circumstance that depends on the nature of the patient and his age. A keloid is a scar on the disease itself, with a behavior similar to a tumor with an enormous growth of the same. In the white race it is uncommon but in the black race the appearance is not uncommon.
Frequent questions asked regarding the increase of twins.
Are the prosthesis rejected?
The prosthesis are not rejected.
Is there a risk of capsule retracting as there are in Breast Implants?
No danger of capsule in the anatomic site in which the implant is performed.
Does this intervention refine the ankles?
Although it does not, by the fatten of the calves it appears to be optically thinner.
