Bicep augmentation or bicep implantation is a procedure performed to dramatically increase the size and definition of the upper arm muscles. In men, it is typically sought to emphasize muscle bulk and create a larger, more defined upper arm. Bicep augmentation may also correct a muscle imbalance that has resulted from physical or congenital defects or disproportionate bicep development. Bicep implants are made of silicone and once in place, are designed to look and feel like real muscle. During the initial consultation with Pittsburgh plastic surgeon, Dr. James Fernau, various sizes and shapes will be discussed so that the desired outcome is attained.

Best Candidates

Individuals in relatively good physical condition, who wish to gain bulk and definition in the bicep region, are good candidates for a bicep augmentation procedure. Bicep implants address the following:

  • Thin or poorly defined bicep muscles.
  • A muscle imbalance in the arms.
  • Men or women who can’t achieve the upper arm toning they desire.

Surgical Technique

During bicep augmentation surgery, a pocket is created within the bicep muscle and the implant is inserted to reside firmly within this pocket. The incision is usually made in the underarm region or in the natural crease of the arm where the upper and lower arm meet. Both of these incision patterns easily hide any scarring that may exist after surgery. The results following this surgery are a more defined and shapelier bicep area.

During/After Surgery

After bicep augmentation surgery, men should not lift weights or workout with weights for an extended time period, or until the surgical site has properly healed. Most patients are given the green light to begin working out again around 4-6 weeks. Immediately after surgery, there will be some bruising and swelling. This will subside within the first couple of weeks and the results will be evident. Men are able to have gorgeous biceps that time spent in the gym simply cannot achieve.

Expected Cost

The average cost for bicep augmentation surgery can range between $4,900-$8,900.
