Fat Grafting to the Calves

Fat Grafting to the Calves

Spending too much time in the gym trying to shape those pesky calf muscles, but aren’t getting the results you're looking for? Don’t worry, you’re not alone – both men and women are actively seeking alternative solutions to get results that seem unobtainable at times. In this Smart Beauty Guide Exclusive, board-certified plastic surgeon, Dr. Joshua Zuckerman based in New York, NY, explains how fat grafting can be used in lieu of silicone implants and is a safe, long-lasting procedure that produces natural-looking results. Fat grafting involves taking fat from areas in which you have excess fat and injecting it into areas that may be lacking volume, such as your face, hands, breasts, buttocks, and even your calves. Dr. Zuckerman notes that “...good sources of fat are typically from the tummy or lower flanks of the back.” The fat will then be used to help balance the size of the legs or to sculpt the leg area to the patient’s desired results.
