What is calf reduction surgery?

This surgery will reshape uneven calves making them look smoother and slimmer. We carefully analyze the characteristics of your calves through precision consultation to plan the most suitable treatment to achieve a beautiful leg line. 

Process of Calf Reduction

No-incision nerve block:

This approach selectively blocks gastrocnemius nerves on the calves using the heat of high frequency energy. Unlike chemical neurolysis, which is more prone to side effects, this treatment rarely damages surrounding tissues as it targets muscle tissue directly. Pitangui’s calf reduction procedure will not burn muscles directly allowing a quick return to normal daily life.

Liposuction of the calves:

This is suitable when the subcutaneous fat and muscle are excessively developed on the calves. We use high-tech laser treatment to correct the calf muscle profile making them smoother and slimmer.

Botulinum Injections:

This method reduces muscle function by temporarily paralyzing gastrocnemius muscle on the calves. This quick procedure enables you to resume normal activities in a short time.
