Calf reduction surgery in Los Angeles is a highly popular procedure that can dramatically improve the size and shape of calves. While many cosmetic contouring procedures focus on the elimination of fatty tissue, calf reduction surgery addresses bulky calf muscles that contribute to a short, stout appearance. With rapid results and a minimal recovery process, it is the perfect option for those seeking thin, shapely calves that look proportionate to the rest of their body.
Doctors carefully choose the muscles that are relaxed in the calves. The gastrocnemius muscle is usually the one which is responsible for the bulky and muscular look. The purpose of Botox is to render these muscles inactive, which then leads to their shrinking, ultimately resulting in a more slender appearance of the calves.
With Botox, there is no downtime, and people who receive the treatment can resume their normal day-to-day functions.
As a popular, minimally invasive form of calf reduction, the use of radio-frequency has become a highly precise method to bring a slender, elegant appearance to the calves. By using this selective calf reduction method, our doctors can eliminate bulk in the calves while preserving calf function. With a minimal recovery time and effective reduction of circumference, radio-frequency calf reduction offers true improvement in calf appearance, tone and texture.
Partial calf resection, meaning the partial removal of bulky calf muscles, is perfect for patients looking to reduce the size of their calves. Our doctors have perfected this technique, giving them the ability to naturally contour and shape the calves into a slender, attractive appearance. In addition to reshaping the calves, partial calf resection has been shown to help correct leg bowing, a condition in which the leg curves outward like an archer’s bow.
