Calf implant surgery is a relatively new procedure designed to increase the size of the calves creating a fuller shape. Many women feel their calves are too flat and would like a more sculpted, toned appearance.

Calf implants

The procedure
Calf implant surgery is carried out under general anesthetic and the procedure will take between 1-2 hours. The surgeon makes a small incision in the calf area before inserting the implant. The calf implant is held in place by the calf muscles or stitches. In most cases, you will be required to spend the night in hospital.

Risks and side effects
Calf implant surgery will result in some scarring left where the incision was made to insert the implant. Risks and complications of calf implant surgery include infection and the build up of fluid around the implant. If the implant is infected or moves, the implant may have to be removed.

Cost and prices
Calf implant surgery will cost between £4000 - £6000 in a UK private clinic. If you choose to have calf surgery abroad you can save up to 50% but it's best to choose a surgeon who has performed the surgery many times before.
