Although : Although normal level of exercise is likely ok with calf implants, i feel that high competitive levels activities can predispose you to tearing of scar tissue a dn potential movement of the implant.

Consider no surgery: Primary recommendation is to look into why you are self-conscious about your legs. I bet your legs are normal! Legs come in different shapes and sizes, and accepting your body is important. Surgery would not address underlying self-esteem issues and it likely would not make you happy or solve your problem. Instead, better to see a good therapist to delve into self-esteem& body image issues.
