The first time I had some doubts about the intervențion , Due to the fact that the hair regenerates periodic,what I can say is that the result of a hair transplant is 100% successful. This revival comes after a period of 9 months waiting to see the result of the intervention. I recommend Flymedi and of course I recommend the person who was near me during the intervention Mr Mustafa. Mr. Mustafa is a person I rarely met. I can say that everything related to professionalism is on his side. I recommend to all those who want to have professional interventions, to have the highest confidence in Flymedi. Thank you Flymedi !

I came across FlyMedi online while looking for medical tourism options for septorhinoplasty in Turkey. I was contacted by FlyMedi's Nadia via email within hours of submitting for more information on their website. Nadia made herself available 24/7 via email and WhatsApp, even as I traveled across multiple time zones. Nadia provided multiple options in multiple locations with pros and cons and for each and stayed in touch throughout the process. I already recommended FlyMedi and specifically Nadia to friends and family considering Turkey for any medical tourism they may be considering. Thank you Nadia!

I'd been researching the procedure for a while and the cost in Australia was significantly higher than in Turkey. I came across the Flymedi website and within hours of submitting an enquiry, Nadia had reached out. She provided multiple quotes with different options, background on the doctors and hospitals. Nadia was available 24/7 and really helped me through everything from start to finish. Great business idea, exceptional staff and great customer service

I am really happy that I have planned my operation through Flymedi. Robin took great care of me and was always there for me and made everything possible. I had a breast lift and tummy tuck and had liposuction by Dr. Asli Datli. MedicalPark in Istanbul. she is a super doctor, the results has become very nice and was also there well cared for. Nurse Yeliz is adorable and has always been by my side. She was also always available and answered all my questions. I have felt very well, thanks again to all I am very satisfied.

Recommended For Calf Implants

Calf augmentation through calf implants surgery is recommended for a wide range of individuals, including bodybuilders, patients who suffered trauma or injury to their lower legs or patients have skinny legs or generally dissatisfied with the look of their calves.

Not Recommended For Calf Implants

Heavy smokers or heavy drinkers who are unwilling to quit are not good candidates for calf augmentation through calf implants surgery, as in any surgical procedure. Smoking and heavy drinking can have a negative effect and create dangerous outcomes on the body's healing process, thus on the results of the system itself. Other contraindications include patients suffering from morbid obesity, heart disease, lung disease or diabetes.

Discharge From Hospital

1 night stay in the hospital is required

Duration Of Operation

1 to 2 hours

Overview

Calf augmentation surgery is a cosmetic procedure which uses calf implants in order to enhance the lower portion of a patient’s legs. Patients who have a smaller lower leg due to an injury, disease or both. The calf implants procedure is a great way to minimize the discomfort of deformity and to provide the patient with more aesthetically pleasing lower legs. 

Calf implants surgery is considered by some to be reconstructive surgery, although the leg’s functions are not improved or restored in any way – the only goal of this procedure is to provide the lower legs with a normal looking appearance.

 

Although calf augmentation surgery is one of the least popular procedures among plastic surgeons, it is also one of the most satisfying procedures among patients. It is particularly satisfying if performed by experienced surgeons. Patients may consider calf implants options abroad, to find cost-effective treatment packages as well as skilled and experienced surgeons in countries such as Turkey. Mainly when the priceadvantage is achieved apart from the success of the surgery, patients can quickly answer yes to the question 'Is it worth it?'

Preparation

While preparing the calf implants surgery, patients need to avoid smoking at least a month before the procedure. Omega 3 capsules, anti-inflammatory medicines, blood thinners such as aspirin, and herbal teas also need to be avoided for at least 2 weeks before the procedure is set to begin.

How It Is Performed

Calf implants surgery is quite similar to any implant surgery. Patients and surgeons decided about having two implants in one leg or just one implant in each before the surgery. The patient’s legs are measured and necessary medical tests have been applied. Based on the measurements, implants are ordered and sterilized in order to insert during the surgery. 

Calf augmentation through calf implants surgery is usually performed under general anesthesia, but in some cases, intravenous sedation can also be used. Once the anesthesia kicks in, calf implants surgeons create small incisions generally in the creases behind the knee. A special type of instrument is used at this stage, to create a pocket between the fascia and the muscle tissue underneath. The pocket must be big enough for the implant to fit in but small enough so the implant will be secured. The surgeon will then check the patient’s legs, with the implants in place. If the desired position and result is achieved, the incisions are stitched back together. If not, the surgeon can make little adjustments. The area is then wrapped in bandages and a compression garment is applied. Sometimes drains can be placed as well, in order to facilitate healing and the removal of unwanted fluids from the surgery area.

Recovery

During the first 12 hours of the calf implants recovery period, the patient's legs must be kept in an elevated position. Surgeons will give the compression bandages that patients will need to keep on for two weeks post-surgery, according to the ISAPS (The International Society of Aesthetic Plastic Surgery). During the second week of the calf implants recovery period, patients can return to minimum physical activity and work (if the job requires minimum effort). 

 

Heavy lifting, standing and/or walking for long periods need to be avoided for at least 3 weeks after the calf implants surgery. Most patients take 3 weeks off work for this procedure to get a comfortable recovery period. Patients also need to follow the doctor's instructions carefully. The legs need to be massaged daily in order to avoid capsular contracture. 

Risks

Calf implants surgery risks and complications can include: 

● Seroma 
● Capsular contracture 
● Infection of the operation area 
● Unfavorable scarring 
● Excessive bleeding

● Skin Discoloration 
● Asymmetry

● Rupture or misplacement

● Revision surgery

Side Effects

Calf implants surgery side effects can include: 

● Bleeding 

● Bruising
● Pain which can be soothed with painkillers 
● Discomfort 
● Swelling 
● Temporary numbness

● Side effects from the anesthesia

Success Rates

Calf implant surgery reviews set the average success rate at 97,2%.

Before And After

After around two weeks, patients will notice less bruising and swelling and feel their skin begin to adjust to the implants. The results of this procedure are visible immediately, but it will take some time for the legs to heal and reach their final form and contour.

Faq

Can Calf Implants Surgery Be Combined with Another Procedure?
Yes, liposuction, thigh lift, and cellulite treatment are popular choices to be combined with calf implants. 

When Can I Resume Sports Or Exercise?
Patients can engage in any sports 8 weeks after the calf implants surgery, waiting patiently and carefully is of great importance during recovery.


Will There Be Scars?
Yes, there will be scars, but they will be hidden in line with the natural creases of the leg area, so they won’t be visible.
