What are implants made from?
For bicep implants, the material used for the implants varies. Sometimes, solid silicone implants are used. At other times, muscle from a different part of the body may be grafted to the area where increased muscle definition is desired. Another practice is to take fat from a different part of the body, treat it and inject it into the area where the muscle needs to be filled out. This last option is being done often when buttock implants are required. This is because silicone implants don’t always do well in this area due to the amount of stress placed on them. They have been known to shift, infections have occurred and there have been other problems. With whatever material is used, what is ensured is that there is the desired increased in muscle size.
Bicep implants are used to create an increase in muscle definition in the upper arm. This is an excellent option for those having trouble increasing muscle mass to their upper body. Dr. Douglas Steinbrech specializes in bicep implants for male patients in Los Angeles. Implants are tailored to each individual to ensure a sleek, seamless look. Sometimes, even with vigorous exercise, people are not able to shape and tone their biceps to their satisfaction. Bicep implants help such people achieve the appearance of larger, more defined muscles in their arms. Bicep implants can improve the proportion and appearance not only of the biceps but of the entire body. Incision for the implants is located in the underarm to conceal scarring. Patients will typically see a change immediately after surgery is complete.

Who Are The Best Candidates?
Bicep implants can create muscular definition and increased mass/fullness in the upper arm area. This procedure is specifically useful for those men who, even after extensive muscular conditioning, can’t achieve the upper arm toning they desire. Bicep Implants and Tricep Implants are also recommended for those unique instances when an injury has occurred and muscle mass augmentation is needed to achieve normal balance.
During the bicep implant procedure, an incision is made, a soft, solid silicone implant is cut to specifically fit each patient and inserted into the pocket. A pocket is then created large enough to hold the bicep implant. The bicep implants are then inserted through the incision and precisely positioned within the soft tissue. This area, consisting of muscle and fat, will form scar tissue that will help keep the implant in place. The incision is closed with sutures, and a bandage is applied to reduce swelling and discomfort. The very small dressing is placed and the patient can typically see the change immediately after surgery. Recovery after bicep implant surgery may take up to four weeks. Moving your arms may be difficult for the first week.
Patients will be instructed not to raise their arms for two days following 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.
Surgical risks may include: infection, bleeding, asymmetry, scarring, and muscle and/or nerve damage.
