Who hasn’t dreamed of having firm, beautiful buttocks and shapely calves?
If you were born with small and/or saggy buttocks, no amount of workout at the gym will get you the desired results.
Buttock and calf implants have recently undergone a surge in popularity. Accordingly, special surgical techniques have been developed that make it possible to replace the lack of natural volume in legs and buttocks. The combination with a liposuction permits the symmetric sculpting of legs and buttocks. The aim is to restore lost volume and reshape buttocks and calves.
The incisions for the insertion of the pads are made at the back of the knees (calf implants) or within the vertical buttock crease so that the resulting scars are inconspicuous. The insertion of the implants is reflected in a symmetrical appearance and an almost invisible scar. The implants are not palpable, allow for unrestricted freedom of movement and offer a completely natural sitting sensation.
- Too small, saggy, flat or asymmetrical butt (buttocks) or calves
- Change of implants
- Reconstruction, e g. following trauma
- Buttock and calf implants of silicone (various shapes and sizes)
- Autologous fat injection
- Macrolane implantation
- Length of surgery 1 to 3 hours under local or general anesthesia (outpatient or stationary for 2 – 3 days)
After the surgery:
- Compression girdles or compression stockings for 3 weeks (day and night)
- Antibiotics and pain medication if required
- Strict bed rest for the first 2 days (lying on your side or stomach)
- Patients should sleep on their stomach and sit on soft pillows
- Resumption of exercise after 3 weeks
- Neuralgia (for 2 weeks)
- Sitting discomfort for up to 3 months
- Capsular contracture
- After a fall: implant rupture
- A possible removal of the implant after several years might lead to an indentation.
