Calf Enhancement procedures can make your legs look as if they have been working out by adding both mass and definition to the calves with your own fat.
In order to perform calf enhancement with fat grafts, fat from other areas of the body such as the back, abdomen, hips, and or thighs is removed through liposuction. Patients really benefit from this step because the surgeon does not simply suck fat out, but rather, sculpts the donor areas. A portion of the harvested fat is then processed to extract millions of stem and regenerative cells that reside within the fat tissue.
Once these abundant cells are extracted, they are then mixed back in with the remaining harvested fat to form a cell-enriched fat graft. The cell-enriched fat graft is then carefully injected into the calves to enhance the size and shape.
The addition of stem and regenerative cells to the fat grafts enable the transplanted fat to successfully integrate with the surrounding tissue and eliminates the risk of re-absorption of the fat transferred by promoting appropriate blood flow and necessary oxygen to the area.
Calf augmentation can be performed for cosmetic reasons, but can also be done to correct congenital and physical defects.
