Calf implant surgery is Toronto’s lower leg-sculpting transformer.
Men and women alike choose cosmetic calf implants Toronto for several reasons. Many fit, toned people want to achieve balanced body proportions and develop each area. However, nature doesn’t always allow this, and some people struggle with underdeveloped or asymmetric lower legs, no matter how much they work out.
Others choose calf implants Toronto to disguise a deformity or injury that created unwanted contours in the lower leg muscle.
Improving physical features can have mental and emotional benefits. Calf augmentation not only enhances the legs, it can also improve the body’s entire appearance. We’ve helped many people just like you feel better about their figures.
Proportionate calves that show optimally developed muscles, in line with the rest of your physique, are attainable. We’re available to listen and to offer personalized feedback and a custom plan to help you reach your goals.

How Is Calf Implant Surgery Performed?
The calf implants Toronto procedure is done under general anaesthetic and takes roughly 2 hours. A small incision is created at the back of the knee in a natural crease. Then a carefully sized pocket will be created for the calf implant to fit snugly inside.
The prosthetics used for muscle augmentation are a gummy, firm-feeling silicone cohesive gel. They are somewhat soft – like real body tissue – but not liquid, so they hold their shape well.
Implants can be placed on the inside or outside of the calf. Your body will form scar tissue to hold the implant in place.
In some cases, plastic surgeons offer fat grafting along with calf implants to customize and build on a body-contouring result.
Implants are inserted, and when the position is confirmed to be ideal, the incisions are sutured closed and covered with small medical tape. Compression garments may also be placed on the calves to help support healing tissues and reduce swelling in the area.
You’ll be awakened gently and taken to a comfortable recovery room.
Calf Implant Surgery Toronto – Your Recovery
Your calf implants Toronto surgery will take place at our spacious Sovereign Cosmetic Surgery Centre, centrally located at 59 Hayden Street in downtown Toronto. Calf augmentation surgery is an outpatient procedure, so you can go home with a friend or family member on the same day when you are ready.
You’ll be provided with a prescription pain reliever, but many people describe the recovery as manageable.
Walking can feel uncomfortable in the first 2 weeks, and you may prefer to use crutches to help you rest the muscle and keep pressure off for a few days.
You’ll need to take 3 to 5 days off for calf implant surgery recovery. Depending on your job demands and activity level, after that time, you may return to light tasks or work remotely and modify your schedule. You’ll need to pause some workouts, weightlifting, and running for a few months, but your surgeon will let you know which activities are safe to resume before then. Your compression garment or wraps will be worn all day for 3 to 6 weeks.
Incisions close within 1 to 2 weeks, and you’ll be advised to avoid swimming and sitting in baths or hot tubs until that infection risk is eliminated. You’ll notice that most bruising and swelling decrease within the first 2 to 3 weeks.
Candidacy & Considerations
Are You a Good Candidate for Calf Implants?
You might be considering calf implant surgery in Toronto if you were born with underdeveloped leg muscles or you experienced an injury that changed the calves’ appearance.
Bodybuilders may choose implants to balance their proportions if they have a difficult time building the desired mass in their lower body.
Patients should be in good health and good overall physical shape, and they should not be planning to gain or lose significant weight.
It’s also essential for patients to recognize the limitations of any cosmetic procedure. No implant can be guaranteed to last forever.
A consultation between you and an experienced plastic surgeon will help determine your goals and inform you of risks and benefits so you can choose your best option.
What are the risks and considerations for calf implant surgery?
Following calf implant surgery, minor swelling and bruising are expected and will dissipate significantly after the first week.
Less common risks include unexpected bleeding, seroma (fluid accumulation) infection, implant malposition, and loss of sensation. Delayed wound closure is rare but can lead to tissue loss (necrosis). Patients must avoid smoking and nicotine to ensure adequate blood flow and healthy tissue healing.
All surgeries using general anaesthesia carry inherent risks. Significant complications from calf implants are unusual, however. In rare cases, calf implants can weaken nearby muscles. Choosing a Royal College-certified plastic surgeon and fully accredited surgical centre helps mitigate risks and ensure a result that you’ll love.
