About Calf Augmentation
Men and women who have thin or shapeless legs often visit Genecov Plastic Surgery Group for cosmetic enhancement. Our board-certified plastic surgeons, Dr. Carlos Raul Barceló and Dr. Huay-Zong Law, perform calf augmentation (or calfplasty) to create a fuller and more symmetrical lower leg. This procedure is very specific and is not widely offered at aesthetic practices, which is why our Dallas, TX office is proud to be at the forefront of innovative cosmetic care by providing such a unique procedure. If you have naturally deflated calves or simply desire greater definition, call our Dallas, TX practice today to schedule a complimentary consultation.
"I had pharyngeal flap surgery made by Dr. Genecov. I'm 32 years old and had been having hypernasal speech for the whole life - I was born with a cleft palate and had not the best surgery when I was a child. Even though it wasn't an easy task to fix it on an adult, Dr. Genecov did a great job, I already sound and feel better. His office staff is nice and professional, he treats his patients with care and kindness. I had to go to Dallas TX to have all of this done, but it did pay off.Highly recom"- V. / Healthgrades / Oct 26, 2018

"We have seen Dr Genecov probably for 8-9 years now, since we moved to Texas. You can truly see how much he cares about his patients, not once have I felt rushed or like he didn’t want to listen to my concerns. Dr Genecov and his crew are the best of THE BEST!"- W.S. / Facebook / Jul 14, 2020
"I LOVE DR. BARCELO! HE IS THE ABSOLUTE BEST! He is very knowledgeable and listens to your concerns/what you are trying to achieve with your visit. He is very realistic and conservative when it comes to injectables, and I have never been unhappy with any of my results! He has been doing my botox for years, and I never have a wrinkle afterwards. He also just did my lips for the first time, I was very nervous as we have all seen women who definitely went overboard. He achieved exactly what I was hoping for and I could not be happier! It is not even noticeable to those who don't know me, but it has made a huge difference for me! I can finally wear lipstick and it not be all over my face, lol. I would definitely recommend him to anyone considering anything in his scope of practice! I live in Austin, and go see him when I come back to Dallas to see my family. I have also never had any difficulty getting an appointment, even the day of sometimes! HE IS THE BEST! Go see him!"- A.S. / Yelp / Mar 02, 2020
Calf augmentation surgery is often requested by men and women all across the nation. Ideal candidates:
- Lack muscle definition in their lower legs
- Have disproportionate legs
- Suffered from an injury or trauma that caused calf deformity
- Have an illness or disease like poliomyelitis or spina bifida
Calf augmentation is accomplished by using soft and solid silicone implants, and there are a variety of shapes and sizes to accommodate the look you desire. Sometimes only one implant is placed to correct asymmetrical calves; in other cases two implants are used in a single calf to create strong definition. During your consultation, our plastic surgeons will be able to discuss these details further and develop an individualized treatment plan that is specific to your shape.
Subfascial is a common surgical technique used for calf augmentation. In the subfascial method, a pocket is created in the fibrous sheet tissue called fascia (covers the calf muscle). Therefore, our surgeons will either create a pocket over the calf muscle to insert the implant. Incisions are typically made within the natural creases of the legs behind the knee. The surgery usually takes about an hour to perform and is an outpatient procedure.
What To Expect
Crutches will be required for about a week following surgery, and legs should be elevated when lying down in a resting position to help reduce swelling. Soreness and swelling is normal but should subside within the weeks that follow. Our office will provide a stretching regimen and specific aftercare instructions to optimize the healing process. The results are a shapelier, well-defined lower leg that can last for 10 – 15 years.
Those long hours and strenuous leg workouts at the gym yielding the results you desire? Sometimes no matter how hard you work out, it's still not enough to give you the leg definition you want. At our practice, we offer complimentary consultations to men and women who are interested in enhancing the contour of their lower legs.
