Calf Slimming or Calf Reduction surgery involves fixing the excess fullness on the individual’s calves. There are several methods used to produce a better appearance to the calves. There are both invasive and non-invasive techniques involved in calf slimming surgery.
The situation in which calves are bigger than usual is rare. The main reason for a bigger calf is generally excess fat. Overweight people are those who experience this situation the most. Almost every part of the body is negatively affected by the excess fat. However, not all people gain the same amount of fat in certain parts of the body.
What Causes Big Calves?
Other than the excess fat, big calves may be caused by irregular hormonal activities in the body. Heredity is also a factor and affects the way how the excess fat spreads through the body.
The enlargement on calves may differ from person to person. Every person has a different immune system and metabolism. Two different people may gain different amounts of fat in the same areas of body.
Just like those above, people may gain different amounts of weight even if they eat the same amount of food. There may be several reasons for that, metabolism and everyday life affects this situation.
The Recovery Time
Calf slimming surgery is not a tough procedure. It may involve little incisions but it’s still one of the least complicated procedures ever. Patients may experience swelling and bruising but they are just normal and should be seen as reactions of the body to the procedure. They may remain for a month depending on the person’s healing speed.
Most patients return to work within a week and full recovery is expected to complete within 3 months. If the person suffers from agonizing pain and uncomfortable itching or inflammation, the surgeon can prescript drugs based on the patient’s demand.
