  • Muscle Relaxant Injections may be a suitable option if large calves are a result of muscle bulk

  • In some situations, Calf Reduction Surgery can include a combination of Vaser Liposuction and Muscle Relaxant Injections to achieve optimal results

Calf Contouring

Treatment Options

Cosmos Clinic offers two treatment options for a Calf Reduction, and this would depend on the cause of one’s large calves. Our treatment options include:

  • Vaser Liposuction: A walk in-walk out, body contouring procedure performed under mild sedation. This cutting edge procedure is gentle enough to be performed with local anaesthetic under light sedation, making it a safer option than a procedure requiring a general anaesthetic. Vaser Liposuction uses ultrasound energy (similar to radio frequency technology) to deliver precise results, by melting fat cells and promoting skin tightening.
  • Muscle Relaxant Injections: Many women suffer from over-developed muscular calves due to genetics, exercise or sports. Muscle Relaxant Injections can help to create a slimmer, more feminine appearance to the calf. They can also be used therapeutically to assist with reducing tight calf muscles caused by exercise as well as pain and swelling from wearing high heels. These injections are widely used in Asia as bulky, muscular calves are a common genetic predisposition. The term “radish-like legs” is often used to describe this trait, where the calves appear shorter and larger in proportion to the rest of the leg. Muscle Relaxant Injections can be injected into the large muscles (specifically the gastrocnemius muscle) to help reduce muscle bulk. The result is a more streamlined and slimmer leg.
