    How Much Do Calf Implants Cost?

    How Much Do Calf Implants Cost?

    Calf Implants 

    Calf implant cosmetic surgery goes a long way in contouring and adding body to the lower legs. Your plastic surgeon will help you understand various aspects of the surgery during the initial pre-op consultation. The surgeon will also talk about the estimated or actual costs related to the surgery. Responsible cosmetic surgeons make it a point to help their patients understands all factors related to a surgery before going any further.

    Health insurance doesn’t usually cover elective procedures, like calf implant surgery. However, you can always access various different financing options. These can help you attain the proportionate and toned legs you always wanted in a convenient and affordable manner. Board certified plastic surgeon Dr. Gary Motykie provides calf augmentation surgery to patients in Beverly Hills, West Hollywood, Los Angeles, and surrounding locations.

    Overall Costs Depend on the Extent of Procedure

    Calf implant procedure involves inserting solid silicon or silicon gel within the natural muscles or contours of the lower legs. The surgery helps in enhancing the overall balance and appearance of the legs. Your plastic surgeon may sculpt the implant depending on your requirements and aesthetic goals. You can have the surgery performed under local anesthesia or mild intravenous sedative to keep the overall costs down.

    However, the final call regarding use of local or general anesthesia would be up to the surgeon. You may need an anesthesiologist or a registered nurse anesthetist as well in case monitored anesthesia care (MAC) is required. General anesthesia is required for multiple combined procedures, such as thigh lift or dual implant insertion.

    However, combined surgical procedures come out to be more cost effective in the long run since you do not need to pay for surgery center costs, multiple surgeons’ fees, or anesthesiologist’s fee.

    Cost is Determined by Surgeon’s Fee

    Experienced and qualified plastic surgeons usually charge less than untrained or new surgeons. You should always work with a board-certified plastic surgeon since they employ quality standards and follow the latest safety protocols. They also use cutting-edge surgical technology.

    All reputable plastic surgeons ensure highest quality of service and care, even if it means higher overhead costs. The American Society of Plastic Surgeons (ASPS) advises to choose the best surgeon for your goals and to place cost as a secondary priority. Your safety is paramount and should not be compromised.

    Overall Costs Depend on Practice Location

    Cosmetic procedures in metropolitan cities and urban city centers are costlier as compared to sparsely populated interior or remote towns. Real estate and cost of living drives up cost of medical procedures. You should always consider the difference in the overall costs of different practices before choosing a surgeon.

    Consider Financing Options

    Although insurance coverage may not be possible for an elective procedure, you don’t have to miss out on getting a calf implant surgery because of a limitation of funds. There are several third-party medical care financing firms that offer loans and other financing options at convenient and affordable terms.

    Calf Augmentation (Lower Leg Implants)

    Calf Augmentation

    Many people work hard on their calf muscles in the gym for a desirable and proportionate figure. However, it is easy for frustration to set in when they are unable to attain the results they want. Calf muscles are difficult to develop, which is why calf augmentation is a highly sought-after procedure.

    Lower leg implants can give you the calves you always dreamed of. Board certified plastic surgeon Dr. Gary Motykie provides calf augmentation surgery to patients in Beverly Hills, West Hollywood, Los Angeles, and surrounding communities.

    Calf Implant Procedure

    Calf enhancement cosmetic surgery involves surgically inserting synthetic implants. These implants are made of silicon and provide a natural looking fullness. Calf implants can provide a well-sculpted and toned looking shape in the absence of defined muscles. Your calves will also appear larger in size.

    Calf implants allow for lower leg contours to appear naturally defined. Body builders generally seek calf augmentation surgeries for making their legs look more muscular and larger. In addition, people looking to correct an imbalance or a physical deformity can also benefit from calf augmentation.

    Calf augmentation surgery helps in enhancing confidence by providing accentuated lower body appearance. Your cosmetic surgeon will walk you through a wide range of calf implants in varying shapes and sizes. Muscular legs can go a long way in dramatically improving your body image.

    Understanding the Surgical Procedure

    Generally, a minor incision is made behind the knee to insert the calf implant in this type of surgery. Your surgeon will make sure the implant is positioned securely within the calf muscle. They will first carve a pocket to make space for the implant. Your surgeon may recommend getting a second implant depending on your personal cosmetic goals and surgical plan for adding more substance to your lower legs.

    The surgeon will use dissolvable or removable surgical sutures for closing the incision after placing the implant. There will be a natural scar tissue formation around the implant which will ensure the implant stays in place for years.

    Advantages of Calf Augmentation Surgery

    Your lower legs will have a more desirable and natural appearance. This is one of the major benefits of calf implant plastic surgery. The surgery helps people get more sculpted, defined, and symmetrical calves.

    Benefits of calf augmentation include:

    • Shapely and toned lower legs
    • Enhanced body symmetry and proportion
    • Improved confidence to wear swimwear and short clothes

    Calf implants can significantly alter the body shape of people with lifelong conditions, like spina bifida or other natural distortions of the lower legs. There are several different types of mobility, athletic, and basic motor abilities which can be improved with the help of lower leg implant surgery. Success rate of calf augmentation cosmetic surgery is high with a fairly safe and quick post-op recovery.

    You will attain a stronger, more balanced, and attractive lower body after getting the surgery. This will help in improving your self-confidence as well.
