Bicep and Tricep Implants

Bicep Tricep Muscles Implant Arm Body

The upper arm is one area that both men and women alike strive to perfect. Men like to have strong, muscular arms, women like taut, toned arms with no trace of batwings. But try as we might, sometimes it seems we just can't achieve the arms we desire, even with the proper diet and exercise and even professional advice and training.

That's where a bicep or tricep implant might come in handy.

What are Implants?

Bicep and tricep implants are soft silicone “pillows” that are surgically inserted into the arm area under the bicep or tricep muscles to give the definition and muscularity that previously was lacking, or was perceived to be lacking.

Your surgeon will choose an implant especially for you, occasionally even moulding one out of wax for a perfect shape. Then he or she will create a small pocket in the arm area while the patient is under general, local or regional anaesthesia. The implant will be inserted into the pocket then stitched back up – much like a boob job.

Be advised that while most men ask to have the largest implant available, often they do not look realistic. You will need to choose one that is the right size for your body to avoid looking disproportionate. Let your surgeon lead you in the right choice.

Patients who undergo bicep and tricep implants are advised not to lift anything at all for two days following the surgery, and to take it easy for a while afterwards. The good news is that you can see the results of the surgery immediately.

Who has Bicep or Tricep Implants?

Anyone who wishes to increase the muscular definition in their body can have one. However, the majority of people who choose to have this type of surgery usually are bodybuilders who cannot get the body definition they want. Gluteal and subpectoral implants are also popular amongst this set – seen as a safer alternative to anabolic steroid use, which can have dangerous consequences for the body.

What are the Risks Involved?

Like any surgical procedure where a foreign object is inserted into the body, these implants can be tricky. Risks can include temporary or permanent nerve damage, asymmetry, scarring, bleeding and infection. You may also experience implant shifting and numbness.

Before you have this plastic surgery you will need to stop smoking, as well as refrain from using any recreational drugs or anabolic steroids for at least six weeks prior to the operation. Only use a surgeon who is certified by the British Association of Aesthetic Plastic Surgeons (BAAPS) or its equivalent, and make sure they have done this exact surgery many times before, with a stunning track record. You may be advised to talk to former patients first.

If you want your peers to think that you have been working out every day in the gym for hours perfecting your bicep muscles, this may be the surgery for you. Then again, working out in the gym every day for hours perfecting your bicep muscles might be a cheaper – and safer – option to achieve the look you want.
