Calves implants

The purpose of implants is to give volume to the calves. You may have a complexion because you find your calves too thin, whether it is because of atrophied muscles due to an illness or an accident, an asymmetry or simply because the training does not give you the expected results. Give shape to your calves and no longer be embarrassed to show your legs!

The calf is very difficult to build up, even with intensive sport. The placement of a silicone calf prosthesis is then the most effective solution.

The internal twin muscle atrophy can be compensated by placing a prosthesis in a deep position so that it cannot be seen through a very discrete incision in the posterior knee fold. The calf implant is placed so that the increase in volume is seen from the front and side. Implants can be worn for life or removed when the patient requests it.

The volume and shape will be determined in consultation with Dr. Coeugniet based on your body type.


This surgery takes place under general anesthesia for 2 hours with an authorized exit the next morning.

An incision will be made in the crease of your knee, so the scars are very discreet and almost invisible. Then one or two silicone implants will be placed over the muscle. Dr. Coeugniet can put one or two prostheses per calf depending on the patient’s anatomy and the desired volume.

The silicone gel having a consistency very close to that of the tissues, the presence of the prosthesis is hardly perceptible to the touch and the body of the calves appears very natural.

There are calf implants of different shapes, oval or asymmetric teardrop, and lengths to suit the anatomy of each patient.
