Bicep Implants for Men

What Are Bicep Implants?

Bicep augmentation can be achieved through the use of implants, which are placed in the upper anterior area of the arm. These solid, silicone implants can give men the bulk and definition of the arm that is otherwise unattainable. Many men struggle with adding mass to the upper arm, regardless of how often or intensely they exercise, and bicep implants are a safe and effective way for them to achieve proportionality and definition of the upper arm. Implants are individually designed and manufactured to meet each patient’s needs.

How Is Bicep Implant Surgery Performed On Men?

The silicone implants used to augment the bicep are similar to those used in various other cosmetic surgeries for men. Compared to the implants used for cosmetic surgeries on women, the silicone implants used for male bicep implants are firmer and less malleable to more accurately mimic the true muscles of the arm.

The procedure itself is relatively straightforward. After patients are placed under either local or general anesthesia and a small incision is made in the arm, the custom-fitted implants are placed in a pocket within the soft tissue of the arm. This placement area will ensure that the implant can not shift or slide, as it is naturally locked into place. Once the implant is inserted, the incision is sutured, and bandages are applied to reduce swelling and aid healing. Patients can typically see results immediately after surgery.

An initial consultation with Dr. Steinbrech will address any questions or concerns you may have. You will also discuss your specific aesthetic goals to ensure your expectations are realistic and can be met by the procedure. Patients will need to cease the use of tobacco and any other nicotine products in the weeks leading up to surgery, as they may negatively impact the postoperative healing process. The use of certain other medications (especially anti-inflammatories) will need to be paused as well, as instructed by Dr. Steinbrech. Due to the lingering effects of anesthesia, transportation from the practice must be arranged beforehand.

Who Is A Good Candidate For Bicep Implants?

Bicep implants are intended explicitly for healthy men who desire more mass and definition for their biceps. Even with an intense exercise regimen and proper dietary habits, muscle gain in the upper arm and bicep can be extremely difficult. Alternatively, bicep implants are an option for men who have suffered an injury or accident that has affected their upper arm area. When performed by a board-certified plastic surgeon like Dr. Steinbrech, Bicep implants are a safe and effective way to achieve your aesthetic goals.

Your initial consultation will help establish whether bicep implants are a good option for you.

Bicep Implants Are a Good Option If You:

  • Are dissatisfied with the mass or tone of your biceps
  • Struggle to gain muscle via diet and exercise
  • Are an adult male in good health
  • Have set realistic expectations for the results of bicep implant surgery

What Should I Expect From Bicep Implant Recovery?

Patients will likely experience mild pain and swelling in the upper arms during the postoperative period. Dressings will be placed over the incision area, and medication will be prescribed to alleviate the side effects. Patients are generally instructed not to lift their arms for up to 48 hours after surgery (this means it is essential to notify your place of employment beforehand). Dressings are removed a few days after surgery, and a gentle exercise program will be undertaken. This is to ensure a full range of motion of the arms. Usually, routine physical activity, including exercise, can be resumed within one month.
