Underdeveloped Calves Treatment
Sometimes legs can appear out of proportion to the rest of the body. This can make an individual feel wary of how they look whilst revealing them on holiday, for example. This is why here at UK Aesthetic, we offer treatment that can help to improve the appearance of your calves and add bulk and definition to them.
Why Would I Have Underdeveloped Calves?
There can be several reasons why a patient may have adopted underdeveloped calves. These can include the following:
– Birth Defects
– Long Term Injury
Surgery can also be a solution for some patients if they feel they are struggling to grow their calf muscles through regular exercising.
What Is The Best Treatment For Underdeveloped Calves?
Patients who are looking to improve the appearance of their calves can treat them via calf augmentation.
Calf augmentation involves inserting calf implants which can help to improve the appearance of the lower legs. It takes around an hour to complete and involves creating an incision in the natural crease behind the knee. It’s here where the silicone calf implants will be inserted. The scar tissue in the muscle will help to keep the implant in place.
Once the implant is inserted, the incision is closed up and a bandage is wrapped around it to help to reduce swelling and discomfort.
Would I Be A Good Candidate To Receive Treatment For Underdeveloped Calves?
Treatments to resolve underdeveloped calf muscles are suitable for both men and women. If you feel as though your calves are extremely under-developed and you’re in good overall health, calf treatments would be suitable. This can also be discussed during your consultation where we will run through the pros and cons of the treatment available. Patients need to understand that treatment for underdeveloped scars is intended to show aesthetic improvement, and not for perfection.
