Why Should I Choose Dr. Stanton for My Implant Surgery?

The arms are one of the most used muscles in the body. Because you use your arms so often, your implants will be at risk for shifting and moving if they aren’t placed correctly. Because Dr. Stanton is an expert who specializes in body implants, he knows how to successfully choose an area for implant placement, how to create a pocket that will support your new implant, and how to sculpt an implant so that it will look more natural. Dr. Stanton’s mastery is one of the reasons that patients travel across the world for the opportunity to have surgery with us.

The decision to have surgery is a personal one. If you are considering it, we encourage you to come in and learn the facts. Meeting with a board-certified plastic surgeon like Dr. Stanton can help you understand your options. Dr. Stanton will take the time to hear your concerns and answer any questions that you may have. You won’t feel rushed or pressured as you learn more about this procedure.

Good candidates for implants are:

  • Unable to achieve their desired muscle definition through exercise alone
  • In good health
  • Non-smokers

Come in and learn more about the procedure to decide if you’re a good candidate. Effort doesn’t always translate to results. If your triceps are lacking in definition, try implants instead. Contact Dr. Stanton to schedule your consultation or to learn more.

Tricep Implants in Beverly Hills: What Happens During Surgery?

As you prepare for your surgery, Dr. Stanton will provide more information about what to expect and how to prepare for your operation. We perform surgery in our safe and modern ambulatory surgery center, where a typical procedure takes between one and two hours. That said, you should plan on spending most of the day with us for surgical prep and post-surgery recovery.

On surgery day, you’ll arrive at the appointed check-in time and complete final paperwork. From here, we will provide you a surgical gown, socks, and bonnet. You’ll then meet with your anesthesiologist and key members of our nursing team.

Dr. Stanton spends time with each patient before surgery to place surgical markings precisely. These marks represent the foundation for good results in the operating room. Once you’re marked and ready, our team will attach safety monitors, and surgery begins. We’ll clean the area being treated with an antiseptic solution, and our anesthesiologist will provide medications so you can rest comfortably during your surgery. 

In tricep surgery, Dr. Stanton will make a small incision in the armpit, through which he’ll create a pocket to place the implants in. He will then place your tricep implants at the back of the arm, directly on the humerus bone, close to the skin’s surface. Once the implant is in place, Dr. Stanton will close your incisions and wrap the upper arm with elastic compression bandaging.

You will wake up from anesthesia shortly after your surgery. Our nurses will monitor you until you’re ready to return home safely.

Recovery After Tricep Implants

Most patients recover rather quickly after tricep implants, and these tips will aid in your recovery:

  • Wear the compression bandaging for several days. Compression reduces fluid accumulation and helps patients to avoid developing a seroma.
  • Limit the use of your arms and any lifting for the first few days.
  • After one to two weeks, most patients can resume mild physical activity. Physical therapy can help you to return to a full and comfortable range of motion.
  • Patients can resume full muscular activity about six weeks after surgery.

As you recover, don’t hesitate to contact us for more information. Our team will give you a comprehensive list of post-surgery instructions, and Dr. Stanton will also be available to answer questions throughout the recovery process.

Tricep or Bicep Implants: Which Procedure Do I Need?

When surgeons first began performing tricep augmentation, they used bicep implants, carving and adjusting them before placing them in the body. As the procedure has become more popular, specialized tricep implants were created. These strong and solid implants can up to 1 inch of increased circumference to the upper arm.

The biceps are located at the front of the arm. When someone shows off their arm muscles, odds are, you’re seeing their biceps. The tricep is situated in the back of the arm.

While some patients choose to receive only a tricep implant, many decide to pair their procedure with bicep augmentation. By enhancing both the bicep and tricep, patients can achieve a sculpted and defined arm that is highly balanced and natural-looking.

Frequently Asked Questions About Tricep Implants

Tricep implants are placed through a small one-and-a-half-inch incision. This incision is placed in the axilla, or underarm area. As with any incision, scarring is possible, but scarring is minimally visible since the site isn’t frequently seen. There is no visible scarring on the arm after this procedure.

Tricep implants have been used for more than 15 years to provide shape and definition to the back of the arm. Dr. Stanton strives to provide his patients with safe and effective outcomes from body implant procedures. When a skilled and experienced plastic surgeon places high-quality implants in well-qualified patients, risks are minimal. Dr. Stanton will work closely with you to ensure that surgery is a safe option for you.

Downtime is minimal after tricep implants. Most of our patients miss one to two weeks from work. Full activity is possible about six weeks after surgery.

No one wants to look overdone after implant surgery. To create natural-looking results for each of our patients, we custom fit implants. Dr. Stanton carefully chooses implant size and position to create a sculpted definition.
