Calf ImplantsBy our Fort Lauderdale Plastic Surgeon
No matter your reason for wanting implants, you need to know that your body is in good hands. Dr. Chance Kaplan of Fort Lauderdale, Florida, has been a trusted name in plastic and cosmetic surgery since 1987. His compassionate and reassuring nature helps his patients feel confident in their decisions to make changes to improve their appearance.
Calf implants is a procedure done on people who wish to improve the appearance of their legs. Even after constant and consistent exercise, some may still not be able to achieve the legs the want, often due to genetics or physical defects. With the calf implants, the calves will appear fuller and more proportional.

Your Calf Implant Consultation
At your calf implant consultation, Dr. Kaplan will ask you important questions about your medical history and your reasons for seeking a calf implant. He will examine your medical history to ensure you are a good candidate for a gluteus implant.
Come to the appointment prepared to discuss your current medications including over-the-counter medications and supplements. It would be helpful for you to bring your medication bottles with you.
Once you and Dr. Kaplan agree that calf implants are a good choice for you, your treatment will be discussed and your surgery will be scheduled. Most surgeries take place right here in our Fort Lauderdale office. You will be given instructions for caring for your body following your surgery as well as prescriptions to reduce discomfort and swelling. Plan ahead so that you will have adequate time to rest while you are healing.
The Calf Implant Procedure
During the implant surgery, you will be put under anesthesia for about two hours until the surgery is complete. During the procedure, Dr. Kaplan will implant durable silicone into your calves via a small incision at the natural crease behind your knee. The implant is placed through this incision and closed with stitches.
Following Your Calf Implant
After your surgery is complete, most patients will feel tenderness or pain in their calf area for about one week after surgery, and it is recommended to rest and avoid any intense movement during your recovery. Most will feel their pain subside after a few days and be able to return to work, but it may take several months for a full recovery.
