How can I increase the size of my calves? I work out but cannot see a change.

How can I increase the size of my calves?  Calf augmentation, or enhancement, is a procedure which involves mainly the placement of an implant to increase the “size” of the calve muscles. This is an important distinction because the goal of calf augmentation is to enlarge the muscle portion of the calves. Another-words, they make the muscular portion look bigger. To understand calf augmentation one must first understand the anatomy.

The calve muscles, gastrocnemius muscles, are actually two heads of one muscle. One is lateral, and the other is medial. The lateral head is wider, but shorter, and the medial head is longer, but narrower. The two heads then meet in the midline and, along with another and deeper muscle, called the soleus, join and form a tendon which forms the Achilles tendon that connects to the heel of the foot. The calf implant is meant to augment the muscle portion only, and not the tendon. This allows a much more robust appearance to the calve muscles, giving a much more enhanced and muscular look that people desire from extreme work-outs.

Calf augmentation doesn’t always make one look like body builders. It can used to refine one’s legs for a sharper and more attractive look. It works especially well for those who work out routinely but have a difficult time showing the fruits of their labor!

I can go on and on but basically you have personally made a great change for me. You were completely gentle and very honest with me. I am very happy I had this procedure done by you. Thank you! Even in the hospital you made it all better knowing I was scared and nervous. You’re great! Thank you again.” – DB

  • “Hi all, I wanted to send a thank you for all you guys did for me. I’m so thrilled. Everyone was so kind and knowledgeable and just plain fun. That really helped me get over being nervous and shy about the whole thing. Your experience really shines. I attached a picture of my new chest with a shirt I’m wearing that made me think of y’all!”

    “I have had 3 procedures so far with Dr. Javaheri, they are: tummy tuck with lower body lift, arms & breast reduction , and legs & gluteus maximus lift. My upcoming surgery is a face lift procedure. All these procedures are following weight loss surgery procedure called Gastric Bypass whereby I lost nearly 300 lbs. Dr. Javaheri performed all of my plastic & reconstructive surgeries to a great success. I am very pleased by the results. He even came to the office on a Sunday to deal with a small complication I had following one of my surgeries. It is so unusual to find a surgeon who cares so much about his patients; and an office staff that are so capable.”*
