How is Non-Invasive Calf Selective Neurectomy performed?

From a very small incision made behind the knee, we find the exact nerves that need to be severed and then clip the applicable nerves to give the calf the best shape possible.

Lateral gastrocnemius outer muscle: muscle located in the outer part of the calf
Medial gastrocnemius inner muscle: inner part of calf muscle that creates an uneven line along the legs
Soleus muscle: muscle located in the superficial posterior compartment of the leg.

  • designing muscle area for removal 1. During consultation, a doctor checks for the location of calf muscles and finds the exact muscle to be removed.
  • minimal incision at the back of the knee 2. Small incisions are made at the top of the calf behind the knee
  • removing inner and outter calf muscles equally 3. Inner and outer calf muscles are evenly removed.
  • shapely leg without calf muscle 4. Calf muscles are softened resulting in more feminine-looking calves.

Precautions after procedure

  • You may experience stiffness for about a week following the procedure.
  • Do not rub the treated area and avoid saunas, hot spas, and any high temperature places for at least 24 hours.
  • We recommend no smoking or drinking for at least a week.
  • Sometimes headache, dizziness or swelling may follow after the procedure. These are temporary side effects and will subside in two to three days.
  • Avoid hiking, leg exercises and vigorous exercise of any kind.

Benefits of JK Non-Invasive Calf Selective Neurectomy

Compared to Neurolysis, which applies chemicals to the nerve and is more likely to create side effects, non-invasive selective neurectomy can selectively block nerves in the gastrocnemius without damaging surrounding tissues. Unlike Radiofrequency Calf Reduction, Calf Selective Neurectomy does not burn the muscle, which benefits patients who wish to avoid pain and swelling after procedure and want a rapid recovery.

Non-Invasive procedure

It benefits patients who want to achieve attractive calves but avoid surgery. There is no limit for age or body type to go through the procedure.

Customized procedure

Due to the precise and detailed analysis of each patient셲 body type, age, skin, body fat, and abdominal fascia, it is possible to perform a safe and effective procedure, resulting in smooth and slender legs with symmetrically slim inner and outer calf muscles.

Selective muscle removal

This procedure removes unwanted muscle without damaging any surrounding tissues and prevents skin from sagging. It selectively blocks the targeted nerves without risk of vessel or nerve damage. As there is little to no swelling, bruising or pain, patients can return to normal daily life immediately following the procedure.
