about

Skinny, underdeveloped calves can be an issue for both men and women, particularly when the rest of the body has good muscular definition. This can be due to a muscular imbalance as a result of physical or congenital defects or following an accident. Others have simply been unable to achieve the level of muscular definition they want through exercise alone. Whatever the reason, the result is a body that is out of proportion and doesn’t meet the aesthetic ideal.

Calf augmentation is a popular procedure to create toned calf muscles for more defined and symmetrical legs. With calf implants made of silicone which feel similar to real muscle, patients can opt for different shapes and sizes to achieve the look they want.




The calf has two muscles: the largest and most visible muscle is called the gastrocnemius, with the smaller soleus muscle (which can’t be seen) located below this. The gastrocnemius muscle is located on the back of the leg and consists of two parts, each part running down the sides of the leg from each side of the femoral bone just above the knee to the Achilles tendon at the heel.

During the surgery, which is performed under light, or ‘twilight’, sedation and local anesthesia on an outpatient basis, the surgeon may insert one or two calf implants to each leg, depending on the anatomical and aesthetic requirement of the individual patient. The silicone implants are placed in pockets overlying the existing gastrocnemius muscles by means of small incisions made in the creases behind the knee. Depending on the desired effect, the inner head, outer head, or both, can be enlarged on one or both legs to make the existing musculature appear larger and more defined.

Calf augmentation surgery usually takes between one to two hours to complete but this will vary depending on the individual needs of the patient and the extent of the surgery required. Afterwards, the patient will need to take between one to two weeks leave from work as their mobility will be greatly reduced; full mobility should be regained within two to four weeks and the final result will be evident between two to three months, after all swelling has subsided.

Dear Cocoona & Dr. Sanjay, Thank you so much for my Breast Augmentation procedure. Its 1 month on and I could not be happier with the result . All the way through from the initial consultation to the post op checkups, all your staff has been wonderful. The Dubai London Clinic for the surgery was fantastic. I would definitely recommend to others to Cocoona. Now if you could fix my handwriting skills please?
Thanks again.

I want to thank you for the great effort and expertise that you put in the hair transplant procedure which you did on me. You have fixed a big cut from a previous, very bad hair transplant in Jordan. It kept me very nervous and uncomfortable for very long time. Now, after conducting this surgery by you, I feel very very happy because the cut is almost gone. I like your personality and professionalism. I am really glad that I made a decision to come to Dubai and conduct the surgery at Cocoona Clinic Thank you very much.
