What is Calf Reduction Surgery in Korea?

Calf reduction surgery is the procedure that can improves the size and shape of calves by blocking selected nerves. The bulky calf muscles contribute to a short and stout appearance. Calf reduction surgery slims and contours the over-developed muscle calves by shrinking the muscles. There are a number of non-invasive and invasive techniques in calf reduction. Most of non-invasive methods such as Botox injection or massage treatment are temporary solutions. Those procedures are appropriate for those who are afraid of having surgery or have no time for surgery but want to get rid of their masculine calf muscle. If you want a permanent solution, non-invasive calf selective neurectomy or partial muscle removal surgery are recommended. The method can be decided depending on the level of muscle development or the patients’ expectation of the result. Smooth calf line accentuates beautiful leg line. Calf reduction surgery completes smooth calf line without bumpy muscle through selective nerve block and various calf reduction methods.
