There are many things to consider before proceeding with calf augmentation, and during a consultation, we will assess your suitability for this surgery. You may want to proceed with calf implant surgery or augmentation if:
Calf augmentation in Turkey can address each of these issues and help you have more confidence in the appearance of your calves. Here are some of the pros and cons to consider:
Enhanced calf size and definition – Calf augmentation can provide you with calves that are more proportionate to the rest of the body, creating a more balanced and aesthetically pleasing appearance.
Boost in self-confidence – Many people who undergo calf implant surgery or augmentation report an increase in self-confidence and improved body image, as they feel more comfortable and satisfied with the appearance of their calves.
Permanent results – Calf augmentation in Turkey is designed to be long-lasting, providing a permanent solution for individuals seeking enhanced calf size and definition.
Customisable options – Calf implants come in various shapes and sizes, allowing for a customised approach to suit the unique needs and desired outcomes of each individual.
Minimal scarring – The incisions made for calf augmentation are typically small and discreetly placed, resulting in minimal scarring that can be easily concealed.
Recovery time – Calf implant surgery or augmentation requires a recovery period during which individuals may experience discomfort, swelling, and limited mobility. It may take several weeks or months to fully heal and resume normal activities.
Higher Cost: Calf augmentation can be a costly procedure, and expenses may include surgeon fees, anaesthesia fees, facility fees, and post-operative care. It’s important to consider the financial aspect along with the potential benefits.
There are two types of techniques that can be used for calf augmentation depending on the results you require. The first is augmentation using calf implants that are inserted into the lower leg. The second is calf augmentation using fat injection, which involves the transferring of fat from one part of the body, usually the abdomen, thighs, or hips, to your calves as an alternative to calf implant surgery. The method of calf augmentation will be discussed with you and will depend on which you are most suitable for, and which will give you the best results.
During your consultation, a personalised treatment plan will be discussed that will consider your budget as well as the calf augmentation technique most suitable for you. We offer standard packages that include VIP transfers between the hospital, your hotel, and the airport, and you will enjoy your stay within 5-star hotel accommodation. When you compare the costs of surgery in the UK and elsewhere in the world, you’ll see that patients can make considerable savings by having calf implant surgery in Turkey.
The costs will be individual to you as this will depend on the outcome of the consultation once our surgeon is able to assess your suitability for calf implants, augmentation through fat transfer, or other types of surgery. If you are not suitable for this procedure, we may be able to offer other options to consider that may help you achieve the results you’re looking for within your budget. We also offer thigh lift surgery that can help to sculpt your ideal thigh shape, as well as postbariatric surgery that can help after weight loss to contour the body using different procedures.
You’ll have an online consultation with a qualified plastic surgeon where you’ll discuss your goals, expectations from the procedure, and medical history. The surgeon will evaluate your calf anatomy and determine your eligibility for either calf implants or augmentation using fat injection.
Before the surgery, your surgeon will provide you with pre-operative instructions. This may include guidelines on medications to avoid, fasting requirements, and necessary medical tests. For calf implants in Turkey, your legs will be measured to determine the right implant size, and then the implants are ordered for surgery.
On the day of surgery, you are given general anaesthesia or sedation anaesthesia and placed in a prone position (lying face down) on the operating table. The choice of anaesthesia will be discussed and determined during your consultation. If having fat transfer, the areas where the fat will be harvested from will be cleaned.
The incision is made at the back of the knee, through the skin and fascia (sheet of connective tissue) covering the gastrocnemius muscle. Once your surgeon locates the most salient nerve (tibial nerve), the procedure can proceed without much concern for encountering other nerves or arteries, because there aren’t many in this area.
A snug pocket (large enough only for the implant) is made between this fascia and muscle, into which the implant will be inserted. The size and shape of the implant will be determined based on your desired results.
The surgeon carefully inserts the calf implants into the pockets created during the previous step. The implants are positioned to achieve a natural contour and symmetry. The surgeon will assess the appearance and adjust as needed. Once the implants are in place, the incisions are closed with sutures. The surgeon may use dissolvable sutures or advise on their removal during a follow-up visit.
The surgeon will perform liposuction to extract the excess fat from the donor areas discussed in your consultation. The fat removal process is usually done using a small cannula, a thin tube-like instrument, which is inserted through small incisions in the skin. The harvested fat is then processed and purified.
Once the fat is purified, it is carefully injected into the calf muscles using small, strategically placed incisions. The surgeon will precisely distribute the fat to achieve the desired shape and volume in the calves for natural-looking results.
After the calf implant surgery or augmentation, you’ll be given specific aftercare instructions to help with healing and minimise complications. This will include wearing a compression garment for 3 weeks and plasters for 2 weeks, avoiding strenuous activities, and taking prescribed medications. Sutures will be absorbed.
The recovery process varies for each individual, but typically involves several weeks of limited physical activity. After fat transfer, some of the injected fat will be reabsorbed by the body. Once the initial swelling subsides, the final results will begin to show. Your surgeon will schedule follow-up appointments to monitor your progress, remove sutures if necessary, and provide any additional guidance or support.

You may be a good candidate for calf augmentation if you’re looking to emphasise the bulk of the calf muscle, or you’re wanting to sculpt your calves to be more proportionate to your thigh. If you are a bodybuilder and are not satisfied with the definition of your lower leg, calf implant surgery or augmentation could be a solution, whilst it can also help with correcting lower leg defects resulting from injury, or diseases such as polio, or congenital conditions, such as club foot or spina bifida. During a consultation, we’ll be able to assess and recommend whether calf implants or fat injections can provide the results you are wanting to achieve.
During recovery after calf augmentation, you may need to wear a compression garment for 3 weeks and plasters for 2 weeks. You will also need to avoid strenuous activities on your calves and will need to take prescribed medications. Recovery will vary for each patient, but you can expect several weeks of limited physical activity until healed and fully recovered.
The results of calf augmentation surgery are visible almost immediately, with calf implant results permanent. You can get more information on the Badge Clinic Instagram page about the calf augmentation surgery results you can expect. Following your surgeon’s instructions is essential to the success of your surgery. It’s important that the surgical incisions are not subjected to excessive force, swelling, abrasion or motion during the time of healing. Your doctor will give you specific instructions on how to care for yourself.
The level of pain experienced during and after calf implant surgery or fat injection will vary between patients. During the surgery, you will be under anaesthesia, so you should not feel any pain. After the procedure, it is common to experience discomfort, swelling, and soreness in the calf area. Your surgeon will prescribe pain medication to manage any post-operative pain. While there may be some discomfort during the initial recovery period, it typically subsides over time, and most patients find the discomfort to be manageable.
