Male Shoulder Implants

Male Shoulder Implants

Male Shoulder Implants are for men seeking a more defined and muscular shoulder; this is a good option. Deltoid augmentation is also used to correct congenital defects and reverse trauma. However, this procedure is still perfect for increasing shoulder mass. A talented member of the Male Plastic Surgery Network, such as Dr. Douglas Steinbrech, who recently opened a new office on N Michigan Ave. in Chicago, can easily customize shoulder implants to create a perfect fit for his recipients.

How Is Shoulder Implant Surgery Performed?

All shoulder implant surgeries in Chicago are performed with a solid, soft silicone by Alpha Aesthetics. The procedure will require a general anesthetic and takes one to two hours. Dr. Steinbrech begins with a small incision made into the deltoid muscle area, then an outer covering of muscle, known as the fascia. An incision is made in the fascia, and your surgeon will create a pocket to place the implants. After inserting them, the incision is closed with sutures applied underneath the skin. Over time, scar tissue forms around the implant, causing it to become a permanent part of the body.

Who Is A Good Candidate For Male Shoulder Implants?

The ideal candidates for shoulder implants are healthy men who want to add muscle mass and definition to the upper arm. Developing shoulder mass requires hard work, determination in the gym, and good genetics. Even with hard work, frequent workouts, and heavy lifting, you might not have your desired appearance simply due to bad genetics. Shoulder implants can also be used to fix possible congenital defects. They can also reverse trauma if you’ve lost shoulder mass through some injury, such as in a car crash.

Recovery Time

Generally, after a shoulder implant, you must stay in the hospital for about two or three days. After this, you will be discharged and asked to take it easy for about a month. The healing process is often straightforward, though you may have trouble comfortably raising your arms for a while. You will likely be able to return to regular workouts or heavy lifting within a couple of weeks at the discretion of Dr. Steinbrech. Full healing will take about six months, after which you shouldn’t expect to have any other issues. The implant will remain for the rest of your life.
