Botox for Calf Reduction

Body » Botox for Calf Reduction



Most women long for slim, sexy legs, to go with their trim physique, unfortunately, not everyone is blessed with the bone structure of runway models, for most of us, fat seems confused and decides to live on all the wrong places, or muscles develop on areas where it’s better off sleeping. Though women are beautiful in all shapes and sizes, there is always room for a little tweak of improvement.

Relative to other nations, Asians commonly have shorter and more muscular calves, which most perceive unattractive due to its negative connotation to Asian history. Though muscular calves are looked upon as a sign of health and active lifestyle in other nations, others still prefer their pair to be slimmer and shapelier.

Calf Reduction by surgery however will require quite a longer downtime, hence the popularity of BOTOX for calf reduction.


Before your surgeon recommends the use of BOTOX for calf reduction, he will first examine the muscle bulk of your calves. There are 2 major muscles on the calves, the soleus muscle, and the gastrocnemius muscle. Gastrocnemius muscle, being the more superficial muscle, is where BOTOX is injected. For Asian, the bulk of the calves usually sit on the Medial Gastrocnemius muscle so your surgeon will most likely inject the drug on that area however, this will still depend on the case of the patient.

Pain is rarely an issue because there is no surgery and patients can actually go back to work the day after the treatment so there is generally no downtime as well.


Since BOTOX relaxes muscles, the effect of BOTOX in the gastrocnemius muscle is the same. Though a larger amount of the drug may be required for use, and the result take 1 to 2 weeks to take effect, others may take up to a month, the result is usually not a simple thinning of the muscle but also reshaping so that it appears less bulky and masculine.


Reduction in the circumference of the calf is a bit hard to quantify especially since patient response varies but a noticeable difference can be noted on the prominence of the muscle on the medial part of the calves.

Continued use of BOTOX leads to longer lasting effect with the muscle becoming almost permanently smaller. The first session will however last for only 3-6 months and a repeat session may be necessary in 3-4 months to maintain the result.

The amount of BOTOX that will be used will depend upon the bulk of the muscle but Prof. Somyos Kunachak will discuss this further during your initial consultation.


BOTOX, though simple, requires skills from your doctor, and what better way to have those skills than through continuous learning and experience. Prof. Somyos Kunachak is one of the faculty members for the school of medicine in one of the biggest medical schools in Thailand and he has been practicing plastic and cosmetic medicine for more than 30years.
