How Can HD Liposuction Improve My Calves?

Featured Image

A common frustration for many patients — especially men, athletes, and those in the fitness industry — is having small or poorly defined calves. Even with a dedicated “leg day” regimen, it can be exceptionally difficult for certain people to build and sculpt their calf muscles, often due to genetics or a stubborn layer of fat that conceals the musculature beneath. At Sawan Surgical Aesthetics, board-certified plastic surgeon Dr. Kamal Sawan understands the frustration and potential self-esteem issues you may be experiencing and is proud to offer HD liposuction in Oklahoma City, OK as a convenient and modern solution for finally getting the well-defined calves you’ve always wanted.

What is HD lipo?

Also known as high-definition liposuction or hi-def lipo, HD lipo is a popular body contouring procedure that is particularly useful for patients looking to enhance their muscle definition. During HD lipo, Dr. Sawan uses a specialized technique to extract excess fat from between and around certain muscle groups with extreme precision, resulting in more visible lines. Many patients who exercise regularly and have good underlying muscle structure but struggle to obtain visible muscle definition benefit from HD lipo. Some of the most common treatment areas for HD lipo include:

  • Pecs (male chest)
  • Abdomen
  • Arms
  • Calves

Will HD liposuction make my calves pop?

Patients who regularly work their calves but don’t see any progression in visible calf muscle definition may have stubborn pockets of fat that conceal or “hide” lines that would otherwise be visible. By precisely moving those areas of fat, Dr. Sawan can help to accentuate the shape of the calf muscle for a more defined or “shredded” appearance. In some cases, HD liposuction is paired with a fat transfer to add volume to certain features, helping them to be even more prominent.

Will HD lipo make my calves smaller?

If you are already self-conscious about your small calves, you may worry that liposuction will make them appear even smaller. Dr. Sawan takes these concerns into consideration when determining how much fat to extract and where exactly the liposuction should be performed. In many cases, strategically removing precise pockets of fat around and between the muscles during HD lipo can actually make the targeted muscle group appear larger than it did initially.

When can I work out again after HD liposuction?

It is understandable for patients considering HD liposuction — particularly those who have a dedicated fitness regimen — to wonder when they’ll be able to return to their normal workout routine. This can vary based on individual circumstances and other factors, including how much fat was removed, the size of the treatment area(s), and others. In many cases, patients can resume light exercise after about 4 – 6 weeks. Again, however, this will vary. Prior to your HD liposuction procedure, Dr. Sawan will discuss comprehensive recovery information, including how long you may need to pause or modify your exercise routine, to ensure you are well-prepared going into your procedure and can plan accordingly.
