Leg
reshaping
surgery

Beautiful and slender legs will help you go through your life confidently. We’ll help you take the first step towards your confidence.

Your calf volume and shape are important features which impact the appearance of your legs and overall figure. There may be disproportions, e.g. the legs are too narrow in relation to the hips and buttocks, which make your legs look like cones and be unattractive. Cruroplasty is meant for those who can’t build and maintain the muscle mass of their shins or those who have naturally imbalanced sizes of the outer and inner calves and soleus muscle.

Cruroplasty is plastic surgery which aims to reshape the shins using endoprostheses (silicone implants). This procedure helps fix some visual leg disproportions rather than changes the biomechanics. This aesthetic surgery enables you to quickly get the desired leg shape without building ‘stubborn’ muscles and doing unwanted physical exercises.

The implant-based leg reshaping procedure is indicated for those clients who have O- or X-shaped curvature, insufficient muscle volume, disproportionate triceps surae, and post-traumatic atrophy. Also, cruroplasty is performed for those clients who just would like to have their shins reshaped, e.g. to make their outer contour slightly bigger by increasing only the soleus muscles. In some cases, our clients undergo such surgery on a single leg for medical reasons.

Our experience

Before

surgery

At the consultation, you discuss the surgical techniques and choose the most efficient one with our expert. Besides, you choose the shape, size, and type of your implants. We make sure you undergo your check-up and have all of the tests.
During

surgery

The procedure is performed under general anaesthesia and takes 1–1.5 hours. Our surgeon makes small incisions, places your implants, and puts stitches. Your scars will be almost invisible.
After

surgery

The doctor will put special compression stockings or knee-high socks on you. Once allowed by our expert, you can take them off after about a month. You need to spend 24 hours at our medical club. Your sutures will be removed 10–12 days after surgery.

Our approach to leg reshaping

Beautiful and slender legs make your appearance aesthetic and complete. This is true for both women and men. You can consider your leg shape to be correct if you see three gaps: at the level of the shins, just below the knee joint, and in the area of the hips. If your gaps are positioned differently or you have fewer of them, your legs are somewhat asymmetrical. Leg reshaping will help you fix the problem. The procedure will help you achieve the harmonious proportions of your legs and get rid of psychological problems.

asymmetrical shins, too weak and thin calf muscles, muscle atrophy, fat deposits on the calves, etc. However, leg reshaping surgery depends primarily on your desire to improve your appearance.

Will I walk normally after surgery?

Yes, you will. But walking may cause you pain during the first month after surgery. Our expert prescribes analgesic drugs to control your pain. During your rehabilitation, you need to follow all of our expert’s recommendations: let your legs rest every day, don’t do any leg exercises, opt for comfortable flat shoes, and don’t wear heels for two months.

You’ll feel some pain in the operated area for about five days. You can control and reduce your pain using analgesics being prescribed by our expert.

Endoprostheses for cruroplasty

Used for leg reshaping surgeries, modern endoprostheses require no further replacement and have a dense elastomeric shell being filled with cohesive gel. Surgeons use the following types of silicone implants for cruroplasty:

  1. Smooth or textured (rough) implants depending on the outer elastomeric shell.
  2. Symmetrical silicone shin endoprostheses. Such implants have a maximum width in the middle.
  3. Asymmetrical (anatomical) silicone shin endoprostheses with the most convex part being shifted to the upper third.

Our surgeons select the implants for cruroplasty according to their parameters and sizes on a case-by-case basis.
