Shoulder implants for men are silicone devices designed to enhance the appearance and definition of the deltoid muscles, particularly in those who are unable to achieve the ideal results via exercise or other non-invasive methods. The Alpha Male Plastic Surgery Network specializes in shoulder (deltoid) 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 deltoids to their satisfaction. Deltoid implants help such people achieve the appearance of larger, more defined muscles in their arms. Deltoid implants can improve the proportion and appearance not only of the delts but of the entire body. Incision for the implants is located in the underarm to conceal scarring. This is the same incision that chest, bicep, and tricep implants can be placed at the same time. Patients will typically see a change immediately after surgery is complete.
Deltoid Implant Benefits
- Deltoid implants can help patients:
- Seeking a fuller, more muscular and defined appearance in their arms
- Useful to patients who, despite exercise, are unable to achieve the look they desire
- Restore balance and proportion to patients with underdeveloped arms
- Increased sense of self-confidence after surgery, and many feel comfortable wearing more revealing, fashionable attire
Who Is A Good Best Candidate For Shoulder Implants?
Deltoid implant surgery can create muscular definition and increase mass and fullness in the upper arm area. This procedure is specifically useful for those men in Los Angeles who, despite their best efforts to build lean shoulder mass, can’t achieve deltoid size they desire. Shoulder implants are also recommended for those unique instances when an injury has occurred and the patient requires augmentation in order to restore balance in their upper physique.

Shoulder Implant Procedure
During the surgery, an incision is made, hidden in the crease under the arm. Following this step, your surgeon will form a pocket with ample space to hold the silicone implant in the body, which is pushed into a small incision to be properly positioned inside soft tissue. The region comprising of both adipose and muscular tissues will develop fibrous tissue, aiding in the stabilization of the implant. After the operation, the surgical cut is sealed with stitches, and a dressing is utilized to minimize pain and inflammation. A medical bandage is carefully positioned, and the patient can observe the transformation promptly post-surgery.
Recovery Time for Shoulder Implants
Recovery after deltoid 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. Your surgeon will remove any bandaging and prescribe a gentle exercise program within 1-2 weeks to enable a full and comfortable range of motion of the arms. In most cases, patients can begin using their upper body muscles within a week or so. Following that, the patient can begin full physical activity can within 1 month.
