Q: I'm embarrassed by my skinny legs - what can I do?
A: Calf implants continue to be popular, especially in summer. Usually, women choose to have one implant on the inside of their leg to produce a nice curve below their knee, while men choose four implants - two implants in each leg - one on the inside and one on the out-side, to provide a much more "bulked up" appearance.
A small incision is made at the back of the knee area in a crease in order to insert the implant. Careful planning is necessary and often patients undergo liposculpture at the same time.
In the twenty years I have been performing this procedure, there have been very minimal complications and problems in these patients.
Women who have had calf implantation are delighted to be able to wear a short skirt and men are much more comfortable about wearing shorts and at the beach.
