A calf implant surgery is carried out by a cosmetologist. This kind of calf augmentation is best used to enhance the shape of the lower leg. The implants are usually inserted in the lower portion of the leg so as to create a more appealing and naturally shapely look. The implant may be made up of silicone or any other water based substances which can sit well and support the leg in a proper manner. It may be placed in the medial or lateral portions of the lower legs.This kind of cosmetic surgery for the calf is best suited for people who have thin legs despite plenty of high protein diet and exercise. The legs may look too scrawny with no mass where it matters. This is also a good option for people who are aging and want to make their skin and calves look more shapely. This kind of surgery and implants may also be used by patients who have faced an injury and resulting deformity in this part of the body.While this reconstructive surgery is purely for aesthetic purposes with no bearing whatsoever on the actual function of the leg, it does help in create a more natural looking leg. After the implants have been inserted by the cosmetologist, the patient will have to take ample rest so that the implants get a chance to position themselves properly on a more permanent basis.
