What is Calf Reduction Surgery?

Calf Reduction Surgery can be focused on either fat as well as the excess muscle tissues. The treatment is originated in South Korea to help reduce the thickness of the calves and enhance a better body proportion. You can expect to see an average reduction in the size of 3 to 7 cm.

How It Works

At our affiliated clinic, there are 2 methods of Calf Reduction Surgery available:

· Calf Neurectomy
A minimally invasive procedure compared to the calf-muscle reduction. The procedure works by incisioning the nerves behind your knee, this reduces the overall size of the muscles as no stimulation would be passed through for further build-up; over time, it allows the calf muscles to atrophy and eventually slim thick calves.

· Calf-Muscle Reduction
This procedure is suitable for excessively muscular calves or the ones with bulky (hypertrophic) calf muscle as the concern. An initial incision would be done behind the knee and muscle fibres would be carefully removed avoiding the nerves. It is a permanent treatment with irreversible results.

Procedure for Calf Reduction Surgery

1. Consultation and examination of the calves
2. Deciding on which treatment is best suited
3. Marking the area to be treated
4. Administration of anesthesia
5. Incisions made behind the knees
6. Removal of muscle fibres or cutting the nerves
7. Closing of the incisions
