His staff are professional and very helpful to deliver the best service."- Anonymous / RateMDs / Mar 22, 2021
"Dr. Corbin performed my breast augmentation 20 years ago and the result was better than I expected. My breasts looked beautiful and did not look overdone nor fake. I had to tell my now husband that that I had implants, otherwise he would not have suspected. I had no visible scarring.Twenty years later - pregnancies, breast feeding and weight gain/loss, I decided I needed a lift. I just recently had my lift performed by Dr. Corbin. He is professional, honest and more than anything, trustworthy. These are the reasons I went back to him. He also goes the extra mile in after care to ensure his patients are healing healthily and beautifully. I absolutely love my result. My breasts once again look like they did in my 20s (even better) and I am approaching 50. His staff/front office professionals, Alice and Dee, are always so welcoming and caring. They seem to be truly invested in all of the patients that come in and out of their door. I always felt very comfortable with them.If I consider any other cosmetic procedures in the future, I will undoubtedly go back to Dr. Corbin. I highly recommend him."- Y.M. / Yelp / Mar 01, 2021

Ideal Candidates for Calf Implants
Calf augmentation surgery is typically an acceptable option for men and women of all ages. Ideal candidates:
- Lack volume and definition in their lower legs
- Have asymmetrical legs
- Suffer from an illness or disease such as spina bifida or poliomyelitis
- Have experienced an accident that caused calf deformity
How Calf Augmentation Is Performed
Calf augmentation is completed with silicone implants of various shapes and sizes to create the look you desire. In some situations, only one implant is placed to correct asymmetrical calves, but in other cases, two implants are used in one calf to create the desired shape. During your consultation, Dr. Corbin will explain the benefits of each technique and establish a personalized treatment plan that's specific to your aesthetic goals.
One of two surgical techniques will be used to perform calf augmentation: submuscular or subfascial. For the submuscular method, a pocket for the implant(s) is created underneath the calf muscle. For the subfascial method, the implant or implants are inserted into a pocket of tissue above the muscle. Dr. Corbin will carefully make incisions in the folds of the legs behind the knee and will place the implants using the method that best fits your needs. This surgery usually takes about an hour to complete as an outpatient procedure.
What To Expect During Recovery
You will need to use crutches for several days following surgery and should elevate your legs when lying down in a resting position to help reduce swelling. Soreness and swelling are normal and should subside in the coming weeks. Dr. Corbin Plastic Surgery will provide a stretching regimen and specific aftercare instructions to expedite the healing process. The results are better shaped, more defined lower legs that can last for 10 – 15 years.
Are your leg workouts at the gym producing the results you want? Sometimes, no matter how hard you work out, it's just not enough to build the leg definition you want. Dr. Frederic Corbin provides consultations for people who want to enhance the curves of their legs with calf implant surgery.
