Tricep Implants

Tricep implants (along with bicep implants) are cosmetic procedures designed for men that create muscular definition and increased mass in the arm area. This surgical procedure is useful for men who can not achieve the arm toning that they desire no matter how many dips or pullups they may do at the gym. Tricep implants focus on the section of the arm shown in the diagram above.

Tricep Implants Procedure

Triceps implants are performed by Dr. Douglas Steinbrech in NYC, who has performed many successful procedures for his male patients. Dr. Steinbrech will make an incision in the arm, cut a silicone implant specifically to fit each patient, and insert it into the ‘pocket of the arm’. A 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.

Tricep Implants Recovery

During the recovery period, the patient is 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 full 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, full muscular activity may be recommenced.

Why Do People Get Tricep Implants?

When considering a tricep augmentation procedure, it’s crucial to acknowledge the associated risks and potential complications. This surgery offers a means to enhance the appearance of the arms, particularly beneficial for individuals facing challenges in attaining desired muscle tone or definition through regular exercise. Tricep implants can also address congenital deformities or restore lost muscle tissue resulting from injury or illness. Those with aspirations in bodybuilding or fitness may seek a more muscular arm appearance that traditional exercises and weight training might not fully achieve. Regardless of your motivations, it’s advisable to consult with a qualified plastic surgeon in Los Angeles to discuss your goals thoroughly before proceeding with any decisions.
