What Are Forearm Implants For Men?

Forearm implants are designed to increase muscle mass and muscular definition in the lower arm area. This procedure is perfect for men who have large upper arms but struggle with increasing muscle mass in the lower arm area (forearm). Forearm implants can improve the proportion of the entire body by making it more defined and muscular. The small incision for the implants is hidden in the underarm to conceal scarring. Male patients will typically see a change immediately after their forearm surgery is complete.

How Is Forearm Implant Surgery Performed On Men?

A forearm implant is a soft, solid silicone implant fashioned to fit each patient perfectly. A pocket is created to hold the forearm implant. The implant is inserted through the incision precisely positioned within the soft tissue. The surgeon will close the incision with sutures and apply a bandage to reduce discomfort and swelling. Patients can typically see the change immediately after surgery. Recovery time after surgery can take three to four weeks.

Benefits of Forearm Implants For Men

Forearm implants can benefit male patients who:

  • Seek a fuller, more muscular and defined appearance in their arms
  • Are unable to achieve the look they desire, despite exercise
  • Want to restore balance and proportion to their body
  • Want an increase in sense of self-confidence after surgery

Who Are The Best Candidates For Forearm Implants?

Forearm implants are particularly useful for those men who want muscular definition and increased mass/fullness in the lower arm area, but can’t achieve the desired look even after extensive muscular conditioning. Forearm implants are also highly recommended for those unique situations when an unfortunate injury has occurred and surgery is needed to increase muscle mass augmentation to achieve normal balance.

Recovery After Forearm Implant Surgery

After surgery, patients will be instructed not to raise their arms or do any major lifting for two days. When the patient returns for a follow check-up, the dressings will be removed and will be followed by a gentle exercise program to enable a full motion of the arms. Usually, physical use of the upper body muscles may be resumed within a week or two and full muscular activity may resume within one month. The risks of forearm implant surgery may include infection, bleeding, asymmetry, scarring, and muscle and/or nerve damage.
