Treatment

Calf augmentation

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 an excessively thin, linear leg (with no curve in the calf). The calf implant procedure is performed on both sexes with equal success. It is performed on patients who are looking to obtain a shape and volume that they are unable to achieve even with the most difficult exercises. Muscular women with thick knees and relatively thin calves can be treated using a combination of implants and liposculpture of the legs and knees.

Anaesthesia

Local anaesthesia and sedation.

Techique

The area where the prosthesis is to be inserted is measured by taking the size of the prosthesis and the patient’s anatomy into consideration; the pocket (area to be dissected) is marked and calculated. A four-centimetre horizontal incision is made on the back of the knee. The prosthesis is inserted under the superficial fascia of the internal calf muscle, becoming part of the muscular structure and following its movements in a very natural manner. It is then closed, layer by layer, with an intradermal suture.

Duration of the intervention

It is a fast procedure, taking about 45 minutes.

Recovery

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 risks are involved?

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.

Frequently asked questions about calf augmentation.

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.
