"Dr. Cuzalina and his entire staff have been so incredible to me. I wish I could give more than just 5 stars. I’ve lost 135 pounds and they did my tummy tuck! Not only this, but they did it completely free to me after applying for Dr. Cuzalina’s complimentary surgery. Never once did I feel as if I was treated any differently than patients who paid. Each member of the staff was so incredibly kind, caring, and made sure to let me know they were there for me! They gave me their personal cell phone numbers to be able to access them outside of regular office hours if I had any issues. My stomach has never been flat my entire 23 years of life, and now it is thanks to Tulsa Surgical Arts! Down the line I hope to get skin removal on my arms and thighs as well, and I know without a shadow of a doubt I will be returning to their office when I can afford it. Thank you all so very much for changing my life. Words can’t describe how grateful I am for all of you."- S.H. / Google / Oct 20, 2020

What are the benefits of calf augmentation?
Calves can become deflated or asymmetrical for a number of reasons, including genetics and certain medical conditions. If you have thin or shapeless legs that make you feel self-conscious, calf augmentation can improve your appearance. Dr. Cuzalina uses medical-grade implants to shape and contour your calf muscles, giving you a more proportionate and attractive look. Our team is proud to offer the most advanced tools and techniques in calf augmentation so patients can enjoy natural-looking outcomes.
Is A Calf Augmentation Right For You?
Calf augmentation works well for patients of all ages. The best candidates:
- Prefer muscle definition in their calves
- Posses asymmetrical legs
- Have an illness or disease, such as poliomyelitis or spina bifida
- Suffered an injury or trauma that resulted in calf deformity
Bodybuilders may also benefit from calf augmentation, especially if exercise or weight lifting does not seem to work. During a consultation, Dr. Cuzalina will assess your calves, discuss your goals, and create a treatment plan that matches your goals.
Calf augmentation uses silicone implants in a variety of sizes and shapes to achieve your cosmetic goals. In some situations, only one implant is necessary to improve uneven calves, but for others, two implants are used in one calf to create the desired shape. During a consultation, Dr. Cuzalina will explain the benefits of each technique and develop a personalized treatment plan that addresses your needs.
Dr. Cuzalina will use one of two surgical techniques during your calf augmentation, including submuscular and subfascial. For the submuscular technique, a pocket is created underneath the muscle that makes up the calf. During the subfascial method, the implant is placed on top of the muscle in the fibrous tissue known as the fascia. Dr. Cuzalina will carefully make incisions within the creases of the legs behind the knee, and he will place the implants while utilizing the best technique for you. This surgery usually takes about an hour to complete and is an outpatient procedure.
What To Expect
You will need to use crutches for about a week after your surgery. During this time, you should elevate your legs to help reduce swelling. Swelling and soreness are normal and will begin to subside in the upcoming weeks. To expedite the healing process, Dr. Cuzalina will provide detailed post-surgery instructions, which include information about stretching. You should also avoid strenuous activities to avoid any injuries. After your surgery, you will have better shaped and well-defined calf muscles that can last for 10 – 15 years.
