Tricep implants are a cosmetic procedure designed for men that creates muscular definition and increased mass in the lower arm area. This surgical procedure is helpful for men who can not achieve the lower arm toning they desire, no matter how many triceps dips they may do at the gym. Tricep implants can enhance the look you are trying to achieve by providing you with muscular definition and increased mass in your arms.


Ideal triceps implant candidates are helpful for men who have difficulty achieving muscle mass in their upper arms and the toning they desire. The best candidates for triceps implants should be in good health, have realistic expectations, and be non-smokers. Other candidates can include males with an injury or accident requiring muscle mass augmentation to achieve normal balance.

Tricep Implant Procedure

Triceps implants are performed by Dr. Douglas Steinbrech, who has performed many successful procedures for his male patients. Dr. Steinbrech will make an incision in the arm, cut a silicone implant precisely to fit each patient, and insert it into the arm pocket. A very small dressing is placed, and the patient can typically see the change immediately after surgery. Once placed, the implant is secured under your tricep muscles. The whole tricep surgery takes approximately 80 minutes to perform using general anesthesia or local anesthesia with sedation, which leaves the patient awake but not fully aware.

During recovery, patients are instructed not to lift their arms for two days after surgery. Dressings are then removed, followed by a gentle exercise program within 1-2 weeks to enable a complete and comfortable range of motion of the arms. Generally, within a week or two, physical use of the upper body muscles may be resumed, and within one month, total muscular activity may be recommenced.


Risks of triceps implant surgery include:

  • Infection
  • Bleeding
  • Asymmetry
  • Scarring
  • muscle and/or nerve damage


On average, tricep implant surgery costs between $5,000 and $10,000 (nationally and can vary based on location). It includes the surgeon’s fee, anesthesia fee, operating room fee, and implant fees. Tricep implants are considered cosmetic, so they would not be covered by health insurance providers. Please get in touch with Dr. Steinbrech’s office to learn more about financing options available for qualified individuals.

About Bicep Implants

bicep and tricep implant surgeryBicep implants increase muscle definition in the upper arms. This is an excellent option for those having trouble increasing muscle mass in their upper body, even after rigorous exercise regimes. Bicep implants also assist in improving the proportion and appearance of the body as a whole. Implants are tailored to each individual to ensure a sleek, seamless look.

The incision for the implants is located in the underarm to conceal scarring. A pocket is created for the bicep implant to rest. The bicep implants are inserted through the incision and positioned within the soft tissue. The muscle and fat area will develop scar tissue acting as a lock surrounding the implant to keep it in place. The incision is closed with sutures, and a bandage is applied to reduce swelling and discomfort. Patients will typically see a change immediately after surgery is complete.


After any surgical procedure, slight bruising, swelling, or aches may occur. Patients will be instructed not to raise their arms for two days following surgery. Regular activities may be resumed one to two weeks after surgery, excluding heavy lifting. The total recovery period is two to three weeks.
