Calf Fat Transfer Calves that are abnormally small, undersized, or underdeveloped can be a source of shame and embarrassment. Thousands of people deal with the issue of unsightly calves, and understand how difficult living with skinny “bird legs’ can be. Over the years, these people often develop a fear of wearing shorts, skirts, and swimsuits; feeling like they must hide their legs behind long, loose clothes. Whether this physical attribute results from genetics, age, or illness, exercise alone cannot improve the definition of the calf and lower leg. Most people completely give up hope and feel like there is no solution to their problem.
Fortunately, Vitenas Cosmetic Surgery is on the cutting edge of today’s fat transfer techniques, and we are excited to offer the Calf Fat Transfer procedure to our patients. Dr. Vitenas has spent the last 20 years perfecting his ground-breaking, innovative fat transfer skills; he uses those talents to re-contour the calves, restoring not just the aesthetic appeal, but also renewing the patient’s self-confidence. Using his expertise and intuitive abilities, Dr. Vitenas is able to reshape the area below the knee, making the calf proportional to the rest of the leg. An extremely thin, emaciated, or abnormally formed calf can be sculpted with the Calf Fat Transfer procedure, so as to create a full lower leg that looks healthy and completely natural.
What makes the Calf Fat Transfer procedure most unique is that the living tissue is harvested from your own body. Usually taken from the abdomen or hips, fat cells are first removed then carefully cleaned and purified. Dr. Vitenas will make a tiny incision in the crease behind each knee, where a pocket is formed beneath the fascia of the calf. The delicate tissue is then injected into the leg, until the desired fullness is reached. The Calf Fat Transfer takes only about an hour to complete. All of Dr. Vitenas’ fat transfer procedures are performed at Houston’s award winning Memorial Hermann Southeast Hospital.
Since we use your own, living tissue, a Calf Fat Transfer has few complications and does not cause allergic reaction or rejection. The tiny incision points used by Dr. Vitenas are hidden in the crease behind the knee, and rarely results in noticeable scars. The results are remarkable, and best of all, will last for years to come – even permanently.
At your complementary consultation appointment, Dr. Vitenas will be able to answer your questions about the Calf Fat Transfer, and discuss your various options for rejuvenation of the lower leg. We will also be happy to discuss the variety of financing options that we offer. Call Vitenas Cosmetic Surgery at (281) 870-2051 for more information on our revolutionary Calf Fat Transfer procedure.
