About Calf Implants
Calf implants, also know as calf augmentation is a surgical procedure that uses silicone implants to increase the size and enhance the shape of the calves. Dr. Gordon Kaplan specializes in calf implants in NJ and NYC for his men and women patients who want to enhance the fullness, shape and bulk of the calf muscles. When gym exercises fall short to grow and sculpt your calf muscles, calf augmentation is a great option to build both volume and definition.
Patients from New Jersey and NYC choose calf implants to improve definition and curves of the lower legs for better looking appearance and muscular enhancement. Calf implants surgery can also be used to correct asymmetry in muscles from trauma, birth deformities, injuries or accidents.

"Very friendly staff. Dr. Gordon Kaplan is professional, kind, caring and knowledgeable. I have been his patient for seven years and have received Botox, fillers and thread treatments. I have always had amazing results. I continue to see him even though I moved three hours away from his office 4 years ago. It’s worth the trip, because I know I am in safe hands. I never thought that I would be comfortable having any surgical procedure on my face. However, I have so much confidence in Dr.Kaplan that I am having upper and lower eyelid blespharoplasty done in a couple of weeks. Thank you Dr.Kaplan and staff."- T.S. / Google / Sep 01, 2021

Calf implant surgery uses an incision placed in the crease behind the knee. The silicone implants are then placed under the deep fascia, which lies in front of the posterior muscles. The implants are composed of a cohesive silicone gel. This type of gel can be shaped in Dr. Gordon Kaplan’s operating room to create the contours the patient has requested. Calf implants are available in a range of sizes and shapes and can be customized to fit exactly the muscle dimensions of the patient’s calf.
The whole calf implant procedure takes about an hour in Dr. Kaplan's offices in NJ or NYC locations and you don’t have to stay at the hospital.
Two to three weeks of total downtime should be expected to patients who undergo calf augmentation surgery. Keep the whole body rested for about 12 hours with the legs in an elevated position. Also loose-wrap gauze will be worn over the incision site for seven days. For up to five weeks after the removal of the gauze, patient is required to wear compression garments. With the help of medication feelings of pain or discomfort may be lessened.

Questions and Answers About Calf Implants
How do you prepare for surgery?
Dr. Gordon Kaplan and his staff will provide you with an information packet that explains everything you should do and know before your calf implant surgery date. The information explains the types of medications you should not take before your procedure.
Will there be any visible scars?
You should expect it to take nine months to a year before your scars flatten out and lighten in color after your calf implant surgery. While the scars will not disappear completely, calf augmentation scars will not show evenly with bare legs as the incision is usually made in a normal skin crease in the back of the leg.
What is calf implant surgery like?
A calf implant surgery procedure normally takes about one to two hours to perform depending on the patient. The implant is placed through a small incision in the back of your leg under the muscle.
Where is the procedure performed?
Most of the calf implant procedures are performed in Dr. Kaplan’s NJ or NYC offices. Patients may choose to perform their surgery in an outpatient surgical center, an office-based facility, or a hospital.
How long do the results last?
The silicone used in calf implants should last a lifetime.
Are there risks or side effects of calf implants?
You should expect some temporary swelling, tenderness, and bruising throughout the lower leg after your calf implant surgery. As with all surgeries, there is a small risk of complications.
