What Type Of Calf Implants Do I Need For My Calf Atrophy?
Q: Dr. Eppley, I am due to have calf augmentation post Achilles tendon repair due to severe fatty atrophy of the soleus muscle. I saw that you have done this surgery before and the patient is in your photo gallery under Body Implants – Patient 21. Dr Eppley used 2 implants in this circumstance and I was wondering what type/brand of implant they are? The surgeon I am booked in with is willing to do the surgery and we only have the Implantech Calf Implants available here. My question is do you think the Implantech implants are the best ones and, if not, can you suggest any other brands?
A: There is a very broad selection of calf implant shapes and sizes offered by Implantech. Your surgeon can surely find implants that will suit your individual needs based on leg measurements.
