Calf reduction surgery is a highly popular procedure that can dramatically improve the size and shape of calves. While many cosmetic contouring procedures focus on the elimination of fatty tissue, calf reduction surgery addresses bulky calf muscles that contribute to a short, stout appearance. With rapid results and a minimal recovery process, it is the perfect option for those seeking thin, shapely calves that look proportionate to the rest of their body.
An individual's calf size can have a big psychological impact on everyday life, from wardrobe choices to perceived appearance and self-confidence.
Whereas some bodybuilders strive to build their lower leg muscles with various weightlifting techniques to increase calf muscle definition, other people seek thinner, sleeker, and more feminine-looking calves. As a result, there are a variety of invasive and non-invasive means of reducing calf size.

Frequently asked questions
A tummy tuck is a procedure that allows for the repair of the muscles of the abdominal wall after excess weight gain and/or pregnancy. The procedure removes excess weight and stretch marks, making it ideal for patients that have had children or have lost massive amounts of weight, either by gastric bypass or with traditional methods.

Dr Gunasekar Vuppalapti three types of tummy tucks. For patients with a minimal amount of excess weight and skin, a mini tummy tuck may be appropriate. “Mini” refers to the amount of skin that will be removed.
A regular tummy tuck is ideal for patients with a larger amount of skin excision. Most of the time, this procedure involves relocation of the belly button or belly button reconstruction.
Many patients have questions about the difference between a tummy tuck and liposuction. Where a tummy tuck reconstructs the muscles underneath and removes excess skin, liposuction only removes excess fat. Liposuction will not remove or reduce loose, hanging, or excess skin.
