If you have strong and muscular calves and want to alter them, you should consider gastrocnemius muscle partial reduction surgery. A successful reduction surgery will make calves become thinner and have a more beautiful curve.

This operation is usually done under epidural or general anesthesia. The surgical incision is in the popliteal cavity with a length about 3 to 4 cm so the postoperative scar is not obvious.

In addition to remove part of the medial head of gastrocnemius muscle, the doctor resects part of the lateral head.

The negative-pressure drainage should be applied by pressure dressing of elastic bandage. Patients are generally required to be hospitalized for 4 to 7 days. The sutures will be removed 12 to 14 days after the surgery. Generally speaking, the swelling will disappear after 3 months.
