A calf augmentation patient talks about her surgery of getting calf implants during a calf augmentation and the changes in her life.

Transcription

Carmen: Hi, my name is Carmen. I came to Dr. Corbin for calf implants. I think I was about in the ninth grade when some young fellow said, "I think you have the skinniest legs I've ever seen." And ever since that day, I had never worn shorts or skirts ever. I just stopped. For PE, I'd wear sweats. In the summer, it was always very hard for me because I never wanted to be in a swimsuit because I was very embarrassed of my very thin legs.

Carmen: So one day I just decided to do some research on calf implants and Dr. Corbin's name came up. Several other doctors came up, but he caught my attention. All the reviews were very high. Everybody recommended him. Everybody loved him. So I made the appointment, got a consultation. I was really nervous. I was really scared. I never thought I'd ever have plastic surgery, and I did, and I loved it.

Carmen: I knew I was going to do the surgery once he told me that it could be done and that I was a perfect candidate for it. I knew I was going to do it. My biggest fear for the entire thing was the pain and the recovery time. I have a very low tolerance for pain, so I know I was going to be in pain and I was, and it was just something I had to work through. I had a great support team. I had a great nurse. I had great doctor. And when I came in for my follow-up, they told me what I needed to do to get through some of that pain and work through it, and I did it. In a day and a half after seeing Dr. Corbin, I was on my feet and walking, I was in pain for a couple of weeks, but it was very well worth it. I would do it again.

Carmen: I had my surgery in June, and if I could change anything, I probably would have had it done sooner to enjoy the entire summer, rather than being covered up because of the bruises and stuff. But I love my legs. I'm very, very happy with them. I have so much more confidence now. I just feel so much better and I'm so sure of myself now. And it was such a wonderful experience. So I would definitely recommend Dr. Corbin and I would definitely come back if I had other ideas of plastic surgery.
