Planing on having leg surgery procedure in Puerto Rico?
Here is some General Information about Puerto Rico:

Puerto Rico By plane

Puerto Rico's main airport is Luis Mu?oz Mar?n International Airport (IATA: SJU) in San Juan. Jet Blue, Continental and Delta Connection also fly to smaller airports in the cities of Aguadilla and Ponce.

As Puerto Rico is part of the US commonwealth, U.S. Immigration and Customs Laws and Regulations apply, however, U.S. citizens flying back to the U.S. mainland from Puerto Rico will not have to pass through Customs before boarding their flight. Travel between the mainland and San Juan, Ponce and Aguadilla is the same as if it were between two mainland cities.

Most U.S. and many international airlines offer direct flights from many cities to Puerto Rico. Flights are economical and numerous. SJU is the biggest and most modern airport in the Caribbean and offers all the conveniences and services (McDonalds, Dominos, Starbucks, etc.) of a major city airport. American Eagle operates a hub at SJU and airlines like Caribbean Sun, Liat and Cape Air offer cheap and easy connections to most Caribbean islands.

Who Should Opt For Leg Surgery?

Plastic surgery for the calves is recommended for people in Puerto Rico (PR) whose legs are either thin and spindly or are not proportionate to their thighs and upper bodies. Anyone who has failed at improving the shape of their calves through exercise can opt for calf augmentation in order to get better looking legs that can be confidently showed off in shorts, mini skirts and swimwear.

Calf augmentation is a body procedure that can be carried out under both local and general anesthesia and takes upwards of an hour. Overnight stay in the hospital or plastic surgeon’s clinic is often recommended. During the plastic surgery, small incisions are made at the sides of the calves. Silicone calf implants are then inserted in between the calf muscles and the incision is sealed with stitches.

Risks and Side Effects

Calf augmentation carries the risks associated with any kind of plastic surgery—excessive bleeding, infection, scarring etc. In some cases, the implants rupture inside and need to be replaced. Temporary bruising, swelling and pain is normal and will go off after a week to ten days. One can start walking a week after leg surgery but total recovery takes 6 weeks to two months.


Depending upon your choice of clinic, geographical location and your doctor, plastic leg surgery can cost you anything from $2500 to $5000.
