Calf augmentation

Calf augmentation is an operation aimed at giving the area of the calves greater volume and contour, thereby attaining a more masculine appearance. The surgery consists of inserting a soft implant (semi-solid, not rigid) of cohesive silicone gel between the muscle and the skin by making a small incision behind the knee.

The anaesthetic used in calf augmentation depends upon each patient’s circumstances, but both a general anaesthetic (when combined with other surgery, for example) or an epidural or local anaesthetic with sedation may be used.
