Calf Implants are used to bulk up the appearance of the calf muscles to give the look of having been in the gym for hours working out the calf muscles.
It is most important to evaluate the entire body of any patient looking to have body contouring with implants. Most patients, men especially, will usually ask for the largest implant made. Without evaluating the rest of the body, it is easy to over-do the implant size and get a result that looks more like Popeye than Arnold. All calf implants are made of a silicone material. The implants are solid, but soft.
Benefits and Risks of Cosmetic Surgery and Plastic Surgery Implants
Risks: As with all surgical procedures, risks or complications of surgery exist. Modern surgical techniques reduce these risks to a minimum but patients are urged to discuss with their physician the risks and complications of all surgical procedures contemplated. Included in the consultation should be an open, honest discussion of all previous surgeries, steroid use, other medications, and illnesses which the patient may have had, particularly chronic health conditions such as diabetes and HIV.
In order to reduce the incidence of complications, it is important that you select an experienced Plastic Surgeon that has a proven track record of success with minimal problems.
Benefits: Cosmetic Surgery and Plastic Surgery Implants can be quite rewarding to the person who has peaked from his exercise routine and is unable to achieve further development in certain areas. For those whose genetics prevent the desired development, implants are frequently the only way to add the desired shape and contour. Surgery under these circumstances may produce not only a physical enhancement but an emotional improvement with the achievement of one’s goals. Increased confidence in one’s appearance and physique frequently leads to further improvements in other areas of life.
Silicone implants have been available for more than 60 years. Modern silicone implants used for Body Contouring enhancement are soft, flexible and durable – safe and reliable. Silicone has come under fire since the early 1990’s because of the silicone gel used in breast implants which was alleged to have caused autoimmune disease in some women. Highly controlled studies since that period have proven that silicone does not cause disease of any kind. Body Contouring Implants are made of solid silicone – soft but still solid without the controversial characteristics of silicone gel. Solid silicone has never been alleged to cause any disease in the human body.
