Am I a Candidate for Calf Sculpting?
Men who have not been able to achieve their desired lower leg size and/or shape through dieting and exercise are often good candidates for calf sculpting. Ideal candidates are in good physical health, at an optimal weight, and realistic in their expectations for treatment outcomes.
To find out if you are a candidate for calf sculpting, you will want to schedule a consultation with a body sculpting expert like Dr. Emer. After evaluating your lower leg concerns and learning about your aesthetic goals, Dr. Emer will develop a treatment plan for your unique needs.
Many of Dr. Emer’s male calf sculpting patients are concerned about reducing the size of overly large calves. Some men are genetically predisposed to store fat in the lower legs, resulting in large, thick calves that lack muscle definition. This stubborn fat often will not respond to exercise or dieting efforts. In other cases, overactive muscles can create bulky calves that are out of balance with the upper legs.
Calf reduction treatments can reduce the size of the calves by shrinking the enlarged muscle or by removing excess fat. Based on the cause of your large calves, Dr. Emer may suggest Botox injections or HD liposculpture.
Botox injections can be a quick, no-downtime solution for large calves caused by overdeveloped muscles. Using his refined technique, Dr. Emer can inject Botox into each quadrant of the calf muscle. Botox temporarily stops the targeted muscle from receiving nerve signals that cause it to activate, allowing the muscle to weaken and shrink. Retreatment is typically needed every three to six months to maintain consistent results.
Dr. Emer has earned international acclaim for his hi-definition (HD) liposculpture procedures. He performs this advanced form of liposuction to remove excess fat in the calves and create chiseled, athletic lower leg contours.
HD lipo involves fat removal, etching, and sculpting techniques to deliver stunning definition. Unlike other liposuction methods, HD lipo allows Dr. Emer to refine the contours of your calves and tighten the skin to best showcase your enhanced lower leg shape.
For some men, all of their efforts to build and tone the calves in the gym never seem to pay off. These patients find themselves stuck with “chicken legs” that can detract from an otherwise aesthetic, proportionate, and masculine body shape. Depending on your anatomy and treatment goals, Dr. Emer may recommend calf augmentation with fat transfer or calf implants.
Calf Augmentation for Men:
Fat transfer, or fat grafting, provides a minimal downtime option for long-term enhancement of the lower legs. Dr. Emer can harvest unwanted fat from one area of your body to create fat injections that can be used to augment the calves. Dr. Emer can use fat injections to add volume to the calves, correct asymmetry, and create athletic definition.
Calf Augmentation for Men:
For patients who seek more dramatic augmentation, calf implants may be a better option. Your calf implants will be customized to achieve your desired outcome. Dr. Emer and his team of top Beverly Hills plastic surgeons are meticulous about determining the optimal size, location, and placement for your calf implants.
Calf implants can provide aesthetic augmentation of the outer calf, inner calf, or both areas of the lower leg. Men seeking a body-builder look in the lower legs often opt for medial and lateral implants. For more subtle enhancement, our expert team may recommend a medial calf implant alone.
Calf augmentation with implants requires plastic surgery, which means there will be significant downtime after the procedure. Patients should plan to restrict their activities for several weeks to allow the area to heal properly.
How Much Does Calf Sculpting for Men Cost?
The price of calf sculpting depends on the complexity of your treatment and whether multiple procedures are needed to achieve your aesthetic goals. Dr. Emer will discuss the cost of your calf sculpting procedure once he has determined the optimal treatment approach for you.
