Calf Augmentation with Supraperiostic Solid Prosthesis Associated with Fasciotomies

Summary

This article describes, for the first time, the supraperiostic technique used for aesthetic purposes to remedy hemiatrophy, genu valgum, poliomyelitis sequela, and thin legs. For genu valgum and thin legs, a solid prosthesis was used, whereas for severe hemiatrophy a double light prosthesis was used as a tissue expansor, with excellent reports. The advantages of this technique are delinieated further in this article.
