Augmentation/Reconstruction Implants, Muscle, Calf
Definition : Muscle augmentation/reconstruction implants designed for augmentation and/or reconstruction of the calf muscles. These implants are usually inserted in surgical pockets between the fascia and the existing muscles during plastic and/or reconstructive surgery; they are typically precontoured sections of synthetic (typically silicone) or, less frequently, biologic (i.e., autograft, allograft, xenograft) materials that reproduce the desired external shape and/or size of the calf. Calf implants are intended to improve the physical appearance or to correct abnormalities that are congenital or the result of illness or trauma.
