Calf Implants

Calf augmentation is a procedure performed to enhance the lower portion of the leg in people with a smaller lower leg as a result of injury disease or congenital birth defect .An implant can be inserted in the calf to help minimise the resulting deformity. A cut is made on the posterior aspect of the leg horizontally in the posterior knee fold a pocket is made between the lining of the muscle and the calf muscle itself and the implant is then placed in the pocket .The muscle lining is suited with absorbable sutures and subcuticular suture are used to close the skin.
