The calf is a result of the shape of a pair of muscles on the legs, called “twins”. In some people, these muscles don’t develop very well, which makes their legs look too skinny.

Remember: the Calf Prosthesis surgery, just like any other plastic surgery, must always be performed in a surgical center, by a plastic surgeon who is a member of the Brazilian Plastic Surgery Society and with the help of an anesthetist.


Recommended for women who feel embarrassed when wearing shorter skirts or dresses, because they think their legs are too skinny. This can be improved with the prosthesis implants placed by a small incision on the knee’s back cease. The prosthesis is placed over the muscle, providing a natural volume. This surgery can also be recommended to patients who suffered consequences of paralysis, genetic defects or complicated fractures.


The surgery is performed with epidural anesthesia and sedation, and it lasts about 2 hours. The prosthesis is placed over the muscle, providing a natural volume. This surgery can be also recommended for patients who suffered consequences of paralysis, genetic defects, or complicated fractures.


The patient can leave the hospital after 24 hours. It is recommended to rest for 1 week; the use of elastic socks and average heel shoes for a month.

The feet must rest in an elevated position a few times a day for 15 days. After 15 days, the patient can go back to their normal activities, and after a month, go back to practicing exercises.
