Korea's latest trend: Calf Reduction Sugery

Attractive calves are desirable to people of all cultures. Unfortunately, thick, short, and overly muscular calves, a condition known as "radish calves" or "radish legs," are more common in Asian women.

A large calf may be considered an aesthetic problem by women who find it awkward to wear certain clothes like short skirts or swimsuits. Bulky calves can also make the legs look shorter, and short height is a common point of employment discrimination in the Orient.

Popular Asian media seems so obsessed with long, thin legs that computer-manipulated ads not uncommonly appear comically distorted.

For the Calf reduction by muscle resection you need minimun 2 weeks or recovery and may need to relearn how to walk.

i have freakin' huge calves, but i'd never get this surgery. i'd like to keep my huge calves knowing that they still work properly. ;-;

i heard pilates can elongate your muscles and make your legs appear slimmer and leaner
does this not work for koreans though?

I'd rather have calves that looked like the first before pic any – super hot.

No thanks~
Even if i was unhappy with my calves, still hell no.
Korea what is wrong with you!?!? This is dangerous!

D: Its painful just imagining it. I'd only ever consider having fat lipsuctioned out, I wouldn't want to go to that extreme if it meant possibly have to relearn how to walk, don't even want that after my dad's had to do it after 2 major back surgeries. >< And right knee replacement and left ankle fusion, its not fun at all.

But to each her/his own.

i so need calf reduction.
but i'd never do it. i'd rather do it the right way, even if it means not getting results. ha.

snamorsixteen 31st-Oct-2009 03:54 pm (UTC)
I um.. I think I need this.

OH GAWD EWWWW My legs feel feeble just looking at those before-after pics. This calf-shaving shitness is the kind of thing you see in the SAW movies.

These procedures are so cringe-worthy o_o

I have the "after" picture calves but my mum keeps hassling me to get bigger calf muscles because my "chicken legs" are unsightly =/ now I don't know what to do :S

This entire article. Some scary shit. D;

I am a victim of Oriental, short, stubby, chunky calves...
But at least I know it's muscle :D
