Calf Implants Surgery Turkey

Enhancing Your Silhouette: Calf Implants at formedi clinic, Antalya
What are Calf Implants?

Calf implants are specially designed prostheses made from silicone, intended to add volume and definition to the calves. This procedure is sought after by individuals aiming to achieve a more proportionate and aesthetically pleasing lower leg contour, whether for cosmetic reasons, to correct muscle imbalance, or to address congenital and physical defects.

How Does the Calf Implant Surgery Work?

Performed under general anaesthesia, calf implant surgery involves the placement of silicone implants into pockets created over the existing calf muscles. Through precise incisions made in the natural creases behind the knees, our plastic surgeons insert the implants, ensuring they are correctly positioned to enhance the calf's natural shape while maintaining symmetry and balance.

Calf Implants Surgery Techniques

At formedi clinic, we employ the latest surgical techniques to ensure optimal outcomes:

•Submuscular Placement: Implants are placed under the calf muscles, ideal for those with minimal fatty tissue.

•Subfascial Placement: Implants are placed over the calf muscles, under the fibrous tissue covering the muscles, suitable for most patients.

The choice of technique is determined based on individual anatomy and desired results, ensuring a natural and aesthetically pleasing outcome.

Pros and Cons of Calf Implants


•Enhanced Leg Contour: Offers significant improvement in the shape and size of the calves, leading to a more balanced and proportionate body silhouette.

•Boosted Confidence: Many individuals experience a significant boost in self-esteem and body image.

•Permanent Solution: Unlike temporary fillers, calf implants provide a long-lasting solution to achieving fuller, more sculpted calves.


•Surgical Risks: As with any surgery, there are inherent risks, including infection and reaction to anaesthesia.

•Recovery Period: Requires a period of downtime, with activity restrictions to ensure proper healing.

•Cost: Represents a financial commitment, as cosmetic surgery is typically not covered by insurance.
