Too Thick or Too Thin Calves
Beautiful calves are a decisive prerequisite for beautiful legs. Many women suffer emotionally because they do not have well-proportioned calves. The distance between foot and knee forms the lowest quarter of the human body, while the distance between nipple and the top of the head represents the uppermost quarter.
Liposuction usually helps to correct calves that are too thick, can lose 2-4 cm. A reduction of the muscles of the calves is also possible, yet questionable, due to the risk of postoperative bleeding.
Calves with a circumference of 34-36 cm are regarded as beautiful in a person with average height and "normal" state of nourishment. Many women with thin ner legs therefore feel at a disadvantage because they imagine their chances to be impaired with respect to their sex and social life. An increase of the calf circumfer ence by 2-3 cm is a great help to those affected.
Various cigar-shaped implants are available for augmentation of the calves. French calf prostheses, for example, have a range of six different sizes. There are implants made of silicone gel as well as elastic hardened silicone.
