Bicep-Tricep Implants

Bicep-Tricep Implants for Men

Bicep-tricep implants are for men who have very little natural muscle mass. This means that they may never be able to develop the defined, muscular arms envied by many. This includes biceps and triceps. Even with hours spent at the gym, building muscle takes commitment. Sometimes, no matter how much work you put in, you still can’t achieve the desired appearance. Luckily, men in Chicago can still get those great-looking arms with biceps and triceps implants. Bicep and triceps implants can give aspiring male patients the increased muscular definition their arms naturally lack.

What Are Bicep and Tricep Implants?

Bicep-tricep implants are a cosmetic procedure designed to define a man’s upper arm muscles more. These implants can also aid in balancing the proportionality of a man’s body as a whole. Tricep implants are for men who wish to improve muscular definition while adding natural-looking mass in the lower arms. This surgical procedure is ideal for men who can’t achieve the lower arm toning they want, regardless of how many weights they lift at the gym.

How is the Procedure Performed?

Dr. Steinbrech offers world-class bicep and tricep surgery for men. First, a small incision is made in the arm to insert the bicep or tricep implants into the patient. Then, Dr. Steinbrech creates a small pocket for the implant. Next, Dr. Steinbrech will place the specially made implant via the micro-incision and position it inside the soft tissue pocket. The surrounding area will develop scar tissue to help lock your implant in place. Last, your incision gets sutured closed.

Afterward, a very small dressing is placed over the incision. The patient will be able to see the change immediately after surgery. The entire surgery takes approximately an hour and a half. Bicep and tricep implant surgery can be completed using general anesthesia or local anesthesia with sedation. The patient is awake and comfortable but not fully aware.

Who Is a Good Candidate for Bicep and Tricep Implants?

The ideal bicep or tricep implant candidates in Chicago are healthy men struggling to add muscle mass in their upper or lower arms and can’t get the toning they want. Candidates for bicep or tricep implants should have realistic expectations and should avoid smoking. Other potential candidates could include men who experienced an injury or an accident in which muscle mass augmentation is needed to achieve a normal-looking balance.
