Hi everyone, I have just had pmma injections to my calves. I too have suffered from very thin legs and thanks to my parents genetics very small calves. I had such great results from injecting pmma into my booty that I decided this time round I would inject into my calves.
I have written about my whole experience in the buttox forum if you search under my nickname aztecgirl you will find it.
I was hesitant at first as I was after a more muscular look in my calves not fat which is what you would want in your butt.
After talking to the Dr and the owner of the clinic I was told that they would only inject directly into my muscles in my calves. In my butt they do a combination of injecting inside the muscle and outside. So after hearing this it was a pretty easy decision for me to have the procedure done I figured if it's inside the muscle it can only look like real muscle.
Pmma from what I have researched helps you to develop your own tissue and yes it is permanent. I had my first pmma injection to my glutes a year ago and the results are still there.
I do not want to be the reason why people choose to do pmma as it is not FDA approved yet and I did it completely at my own risk knowing that there may be complications in the future. I did lots of research before I made my decision so I ask that you pls do your own before you decide to do this. I do not want to feel responsible if god forbid something goes wrong later on.
It is only day 1 of recovery so I will post up before and after pictured as soon as the swelling goes down. I will also post up the clinics details on my next post. So pls don't send me private messages requesting the information. I will put it up!! I just have to find the card. If not today tomorrow.
Avatar Pic is 2 months 1 week post op PMMA injections 600cc's and going back for more!
Aztecgirl, Thank you soo much for posting here!! My legs look exactly like yours did (may it be a Latina gene thing?? ....) and cant wait to see your results!!! Hope you are healing well and looking forward to an update!!
To all of you that are interested in calf augmentation and don't want any pain or scars: Fat Transfer to the Calves is by far the best procedure in any surgery involving the lower leg. I have been performing the procedure of fat grafting to the calves and the lower leg since 1995-96 with absolutely great results. There are no scars left, you walk normally immediately and you can easily be on the beach in a bout one week. The results are completely permanent. Check my before and after photos at www.drgrossman.com Years ago when I was doing fat grafting to the face, everyone thought I was nuts, today it is becoming the gold standard. The same will be with the calf augmentation. Good luck to all of you in the New Year. Dr. Grossman from NYC
Hi, I'm from Europe. I have thin calves and I want to get calf implants. Here, surgeons use Polytech and Eurosilicone implants, simetrical (moderate) or asimetrical (anatomical) profils. My surgeon sugest me Polytesh anatomical profil, 85ml volume, subfascial http://www.polytechhealth.info/cms/fron ... angelang=3 So, I would really appreciate if girls who did this surgery, post their story, pictures before and after and type of implants they used.. I will shorly do this!
It is such a shame that so many people have to suffer from the lack of well proportioned calves and ankles. Implants can in many cases solve the problem, but at the expense of post-op pain, scars behind the knee and many complications associated with this type of surgery. Fat Grafting or Transfer to the calf and/or the ankle solves most of the undesirable problems of calf implant surgery, since there is no post-op pain, no scars, no compression garments or drains, no dressings and the results can tailor made to your satisfaction. Check http://www.drgrossman.com for more info and lots of before and after photos.
I'm in week 2 of recovery from liposuction and fat grafting to the buttocks but my next goal is to achieve more shapely carves. My calves are very slim and in my opinion, not attractive. I shy away from revealing them a lot. I think from the research I have done so far I will be opting for implants with fat grafting over them. But I need to really research before I commit to anything. I decided to take it one surgery at a time and now it's time for my calves to get upgraded I really appreciate your posts. What ever I decide to do I'll keep you posted x

Results so great, that I am considering moving forward to travel another 9 hours for a breast lift or breast improvement.
Chocolate kitty. I just had fat transfer to my calves last week. My legs look wonderful, however, I am worried that my body may absorb more fat than I want it to. What did you do so that your legs stayed looking great after a year? I know after 4 months, everything that is left is permanent. What did your doctor suggest?
I am dermatologist in France and had fat transfer to calf by Dr Grossman in NYC many years years ago. The result are amazing and permanent. He has video on youtube how i found him. Clinic extraordinary that specialize in fat grafting one of best in the world. Many photos. My photo on site also. My name patrzia525.
I had a procedure done and i was put to sleep. When i woke up I had red marks all around my lower leg area that have lasted for 4 months. I also have swelling and pain in the leg area and was wondering if this is normal for either liposuction or fat transfer. I am not sure what exactly was done to me but I was wondering if the swelling eventually goes down or will it be there forever. It has been 4 and a half months since my surgery and I am worried. My ankles swell and the are around my lower legs is soft and squishy.
