Calf Implant for a Birth Defect by Dr. Juris Bunkis - Orange County Plastic Surg*

Procedure Details

This Hispanic female in her mid 20's had had at least ten surgical procedures for a spine birth defect. As a result, her left leg was underdeveloped and her legs were noticeably asymmetrical. She came in to see Dr. Juris Bunkis of Orange County Plastic Surgery in Newport Beach, California and he went over the surgical options. He told her that a unilateral, soft silicone implant, inserted through an incision in the fold behind the knee, would be her best bet but explained that not only her calf muscles but also her bone was underdeveloped and she would not be perfectly symmetrical afterwards. Dr. Bunkis inserted a Hanson Medical, Inc. Calf Implant Size CCB 1-2 and she was very pleased with the results.
