Male fitness surgery is a term given to a suite of procedures that use an implant to create a muscular, more defined appearance. New Orleans plastic surgeons, Dr. David Jansen and Dr. Ravi Tandon, offer bicep augmentation surgery to dramatically increase the size and definition of the upper arm muscles. Implants not only improve the aesthetic appearance of the upper arm, they can also correct a muscle imbalance that has resulted from a physical or congenital defect, or improve disproportionate bicep development. Bicep implants are made of silicone and come in various sizes and shapes depending on the goals of the patient. Once they are surgically put into place within the upper arm, they resemble and feel like real muscle.
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.
"After losing weight with lapband I was left with hanging skin. I had spent years changing my lifestyle . I had to find a plastic surgeon that was equally invested in ME! I spent years researching both my procedure and Dr. Jansen. I am so thankful I choose him! I am 2 months post op, and my body is amazing. He literally broke me out of my shell. The time, craft and consideration he has given me is wonderful. His staff has also taken their time. From my intail consult I was informed how insurance is processed. The secretary was very informative and kind explaining the restriction the office has when it comes to dealing with insurance . I can't thank Dr. Jansen or his staff for doing such a wonderful job !"- B.M. / Vitals / Apr 03, 2015
"I met Dr. Tandon when I was diagnosed with Breast Cancer last May. I was fortunate enough to have caught the cancer early and my first course of action was surgery. At our initial meeting, Dr. Tandon spent almost two hours with me discussing various options and answering all of my questions. Not only is he a phenomenal surgeon, he really cares about his patients and helping them make good decisions during a stressful and emotional time. His staff is also extremely helpful."- C.C. / Healthgrades / May 11, 2017
"Let's do the Right Thing .... A great experience at Jansen Plastic Surgery - Dr. Jansen did my liposuction almost 16 years ago. I was always happy with the procedure.Then menopause happened. There were inches that just wouldn't go away no matter how much I dieted or exercised. I saw Dr. Jansen again just a couple of weeks ago. What I respect about him most is he doesn't do procedures, just because the patient wants them. Dr. Jansen, took into account my medical..."- J. / RealSelf / May 09, 2017
"My daughter was 4 months old when Dr. David Jansen did her first laser surgery on a hemangioma tumor on the right side of her neck that was connected to her main artery. He placed her on steroids and did a second laser surgery when she was 8 month s old. My daughter is now 18 and in college at LSUA in Alexandria to become a registered nurse. Dr. Jansen saved my daughter's life and I can never thank him enough or praise him enough for the excellent job that he did!"- J.F. / Google / Mar 12, 2017
"I had a breast augmentation by Dr Jansen on a Friday. I was very worried about missing work and the recovery period. To my surprise , I cooked myself dinner that night , had brunch with friends the next morning , went to the Endymion parade the following afternoon and attended work on Monday. I did not take one pain pill and zero bruising. Truely remarkable recovery. Most importantly, my breast turned out remarkable. They are perfect and look and feel natural. I would highly recommend Dr Jansen. He is talented and friendly! Nothing but positive things to say : )"- Anonymous / Vitals / Mar 08, 2017
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 meets. 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.
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.
