Calves that are too thin, commonly called “rooster calves”, are those with constitutionally underdeveloped muscles. There is then an imbalance between a rather shapely thigh and a leg that is too thin.
Three muscles curve the calf and give it relief:
- The twins: These are two superficial muscles, located inside and outside the calf, which have a role of extensor of the foot and intervene slightly in the role of bending of the knee.
- The soleus: This is a deep muscle, partially covered in its upper part by the twins, which is mainly used to maintain the stability of the body.
The calf muscles are very difficult to develop through sport. The solution to regain a streamlined leg is therefore to place implants. For people who do not wish to have surgery, it is also possible to make injections of very volumizing hyaluronic acid, Hyacorp™.
