For a more muscular appearance in the lower legs, calf implants are among the most effective procedures. Calf implants typically cost about $6,000 (figured from national averages). The cost variation may be attributed to several cost factors. Type of anesthesia, operating room fees, and professional fees are the most significant influences on cost.
Local anesthesia with sedation and general anesthesia are the most popular choices of anesthesia for calf implants. Anesthesia usually adds $350 - $800 to the cost of surgery. More about anesthesia..
Both private surgery suites and local hospitals are available and suitable for the insertion of calf implants. The price will increase between $650 and $1850 because of these fees that pay for both the facility and the use of certain equipment. More about operating room fees.
The price of surgery varies by doctor. A board certified surgeon who you trust is always recommended. The cost of the calf implants should be considered, but not exclusively, when making your decision. The surgeon’s level of experience and his previous results should also be taken into consideration. The region of the country in which your surgeon works will also affect the price; realize this when comparing costs.
After learning the final price of surgery, budgeting it should be considered. Since insurance tends not to cover cosmetic procedures, calf implants are rarely covered. Surgeons, however, offer financing plans to help the patient pay for surgery.
