Triceps implants are a cosmetic procedure designed to create muscular definition and increased mass in the lower arm area. This surgical procedure can enhance the look the patient is trying to achieve by providing muscular definition and increased mass in the arms.
Triceps implants are performed by making an incision in the arm, cut silicone implant specifically to fit each patient and insert into the pocket of the arm. Once placed, the implant is secured under the triceps muscles. The duration of the surgical procedure is approximately 80 minutes under general anesthesia. A small dressing is placed, and the patient can generally see the change immediately after surgery.
During the recovery period, the patient is instructed not to lift the arms for two days after surgery. Dressings are then removed, and the patient is given an 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 a month, the patient may resume full muscular activity.
Include infection, bleeding, asymmetry, scarring, muscle and/or nerve damage are some of the risks of triceps implants surgery
