What is Calf Reduction?

This calf surgery, a type of body contouring, creates slimmer calves by blocking nerves in the calf muscle to decrease muscle’s thickness.
WONJIN’s non incision method does not literally ‘burn’ the muscles but uses tiny micro cannula to block the nerves in the gastrocnemius with
thermal energy which decrease discomfort and bruising.

  • Slimmer

  • A well-
    calf line

  • No tissue

Why Wonjin’s
Calf Reduction?

Because you can achieve beautiful leg line!
It can improve the overall leg’s line as long and slim, not only the claves line.

Because it leaves almost no damage on scar tissue!
It uses lots of different machine with delicate skill to reduce the
damage on nerves and tissue to see great effectiveness.

Because it leaves almost no scar and the recovery is fast!
Through the non-incisional surgery, it has less pain and no scar
so you can go back to daily activities right after.

Types of calf muscles development

There are three types of muscles in the calf: Medial Gastrocnemius, Lateral Gastrocnemius, and the Soleus Muscle.
The most problematic muscle is the medial because it creates a rough line along the legs.
Lateral gastrocnemius has relatively small amount of muscles on it but if it is overdeveloped, then it projects out backward.
And if some of the fat is added onto it, it will make bigger and more rougher line on calves.
So depends on the muscle development and fat amount, the correct surgical method should be selected to improve the line of your calves.

Surgical method of Calf Reduction


    Method 01


    WONJIN uses FDA and KFDA approved equipment 20S, which is used exclusively for reduction calf surgery.
    With a 1mm circumference needle for the high frequency is used to pinpoint the precise location of the nerve to
    minimize tissue damage and this can block the nerves selectively.

  • Non-incision Selective Neurolysis

    Method 02

    Selective Neurolysis

    This is a method that blocks gastrocnemius nerves on calves using high frequency energy.
    It leaves almost no damage on surrounding tissue since it can select corresponding muscles.
    Also, this method does not burn muscles, which leads to less pain and swelling after treatment.
    Thus, you are able to return to your daily activity immediately.

  • Medium-frequency Muscle Reducing Surgery

    Method 03

    Muscle Reducing Surgery

    This is a method that necrose muscles by burning gastrocnemius using medium to high frequency energy.
    It might cause swelling due to heat applied on muscles but it is possible to get rid of partial muscles.
    It is often done along with nerve cutting calf reduction surgery.
