Calf implants

You want beautiful defined lower legs and calves

A weak calf muscle can be corrected by calf enlargement. Rarely, too little calf muscle is a pathological narrowing of the calves (calf hypotrophy) in which the muscles are not well developed.

In most cases there is by nature too little volume on the walls and / or, despite intensive muscle training, it is hardly possible to build up mass. Then more volume can be created with silicone and / or autologous fat.

You are welcome to contact us by phone: 01 353 55 55 or use our contact form. Please note that the next online appointment is not necessarily the next free appointment, please call us if there is no suitable online appointment available.

The reasons for a calf construction:

  • My calves seem too slender
  • The proportion to the thighs does not fit
  • I have an asymmetry (due to illness, accident or congenital malformation)
  • I want to be more muscular overall (strength training, bodybuilding)

This happens before the operation

In a detailed consultation, we discuss the possible intervention and I answer all the questions. We look at before / after pictures of my previous operations and discuss possible treatments.

This happens during the operation

With the right surgical technique and the right implant, I can achieve a beautiful and natural result that fits your body. Operation.

  • Calf construction with implants

Application technique: The intervention of the calf structure is performed with silicone implants under general anesthesia. The 4-7 centimeter long incision is placed in the popliteal fossa, after which the implant is placed over the muscle in the prepared “pocket”. Depending on the initial situation, it is possible to use up to two implants per calf. The scar in the popliteal fossa is not visible because of the fine cut.

  • Calf construction with autologous fat

In selected cases, an autologous fat treatment is possible. Auto fat is well tolerated by the body. In order to shape the body, in some places fat is sucked off (Vaser Liposuction LINK) and added to others – for example on the lower leg, around the ankle or the transition to the knee. This is injected with cannulas into different tissue layers of the calf. For the method of calf development using autologous fat several treatments at intervals of 3 to 6 months are necessary. If the skin on the lower leg is very taut and therefore there is little space for autologous fat, silicone implants are usually more suitable for enlargement.

The procedure and the aftercare

The surgery of the calf correction takes place in Vienna on a daily basis and in a light anesthetic. My claim: Precision and safety during the entire operation. I have over 13 years experience in plastic and aesthetic surgery. The well-rehearsed surgical team is complemented by experienced anesthesiologists who will look after you safely throughout the procedure. After a calf correction with implant, a day should be planned in the clinic. Because after the procedure I recommend for the optimal healing process physical protection. You are able to work again after 1 week, you can work after 1 to 2 weeks. You should refrain from sports activities in the first 4-6 weeks and rest. For the best results, you will receive compression stockings after surgery for 6 weeks so that the implant stays close to the muscle. For possible pain you get the right medication, any swelling and redness disappear after a few days. The right scar treatment LINK is very important and ensures an improved, beautiful complexion.

My team and I are always available for you should you have any questions. You can reach me after surgery at night always on my mobile number. Further follow-up appointments in my practice are important to optimally accompany the healing process and are agreed with you before the procedure.

After a successful operation and waiting for the healing process, you will not be in pain and can easily do sports. Since the calf implants are usually well tolerated, a calf construction and calf enlargement leads to a lasting result. Only in very rare cases, the implant is repelled. The implants are designed so that they are stable to external influences and do not restrict your movements.


Dr. Rolf Bartsch

My goal in building calf muscles is to create harmonious proportions – a beautifully shaped lower leg that fits the overall picture of the body. Calf implants are usually very well tolerated and lead to a lasting result.

My lower legs and calves did not fit the rest of my body. I had “goose legs”, I felt unmanly and my proportions just were not consistent. From birth, I had clubfoot and therefore my muscles on the lower legs was weak. The procedure may not be comprehensible to some, it was simply necessary for my self-esteem. Now I feel well again in my skin.
