Tricep Implants for Men in Chicago

What Are Tricep Implants?

Tricep implants are silicone implants placed in the upper posterior area of the arm, designed to give men highly sculpted and defined arms. For men that struggle to achieve the tricep definition they desire, no matter how intensely they may exercise, tricep implants are a safe and effective way to get the maximum mass you desire. Board-certified Dr. Steinbrech and his team of specialists at the Male Plastic Surgery Group are now offering tricep implant procedures for men who desire that muscular, defined look.

How Is Tricep Implant Surgery Performed?

Silicone implants are an extremely effective way to add mass to the tricep area. These silicone implants are similar to those used in a variety of other cosmetic procedures for men, including gluteal and pectoral implant surgeries. Silicone implants are extremely effective at adding mass and definition to the triceps, and every implant is specifically designed for individual patients.

The procedure itself is safe and effective. Once at one of Dr. Steinbrech’s Male Plastic Surgery practices, patients are placed under either general or local anesthesia. Small incisions are made on the posterior of the arm, and custom-fitted implants are placed within the arm. The natural shape of the tricep muscles secures the implant in place. The entire surgical procedure generally takes no longer than 90 minutes.

The steps to prepare for tricep implant surgery are similar to those you would take before any other cosmetic procedure. During an initial consultation, patients will speak with Dr. Steinbrech to share their specific aesthetic goals, as well as any questions or concerns. Patients will also cease the use of nicotine products, as well as certain medications, in the lead-up to surgery. Transportation home must also be arranged beforehand, as patients will be unable to drive due to the effects of anesthesia.

Who Is a Good Candidate For Tricep Implants?

Even men who intensely exercise may struggle to achieve the look they want for their upper arms. It is very possible, and even likely, that regardless of how many dips, pulldowns, or reps of close-grip bench press you do, you will be unsatisfied with the appearance of your triceps. Tricep implants can be the final step for men on their fitness journey to achieve the look they want.

Alternatively, tricep implants are also a good option for men who have suffered an injury or accident which has affected their upper arm area. In such cases, tricep implants can be used to restore a natural balance and aesthetic to the upper arm.

Regardless of the reasoning all men of good health, and who wish to alter the appearance of their upper arms, are considered candidates for tricep implants.

Tricep Implants Are a Good Option If You:

  • Are dissatisfied with the mass or definition of your triceps
  • Have been unable to achieve your desired appearance through exercise
  • Are an adult male in overall good health
  • Have realistic expectations about the results of tricep implant surgery

What Can I Expect From Tricep Implant Recovery?

During the postoperative period, patients will likely experience mild pain and swelling in the upper arms. A dressing will be placed over the incision, and medication will be used to help alleviate the side effects of the operation. Patients are generally instructed not to lift their arms for up to 48 hours after surgery (this means it is important to notify your place of employment beforehand). Once dressings are removed a few days after surgery, a gentle exercise program will be undertaken to ensure a full range of motion of the arms. Usually, normal physical activity, including exercise, can be fully resumed within one month.
