Male fitness surgery is a term given to a suite of procedures that use an implant to create a muscular, more defined appearance. Our New Orleans plastic surgeons 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.
"Been with Dr Jansen for four years. He was a great dr to have on my side."- R.D. / Healthgrades / Sep 19, 2019
"I had gender affirming top surgery (chest masculinization) with Dr. Jansen. He was kind and pragmatic about my desires and possible results. I know there's a large variance in potential outcomes, but i feel like he did a superb job overall, and i couldn't be happier. His staff is also very kind, and i felt like the experience was overall affirming and positive. "- D. / Healthgrades / Sep 08, 2021
"I went to Dr. Tandon for a much needed breast reduction to help with chronic pain. I have had 12+ surgeries for cleft lip and palate repair so this was not my first rodeo with a surgery. I found Dr. Tandon to have such a comforting sense of quiet confidence and I immediately trusted him. Throughout consultations, pre op, surgery, and post op he was always the perfect mix of reassuring and casual which really helped my medical anxiety. His demeanor and professionalism always set me at ease. I told Dr. Tandon that I just wanted to look proportionate for my size and to not be in pain and he assured me that he could do that for me. I am a month post op and haven't had any back pain yet -- I could cry! I felt secure enough to leave my sizing up to him and his expertise and I I am incredibly happy with my results and the quality of care from him and his staff. I would recommend him highly to anyone in the area looking for a plastic surgeon."- B.F. / Google / Sep 08, 2021
"The journey of knowing Dr.Tandon over the last few years brings me to tears. I still remember the day my mom found out the pain she had been having in her breast was indeed cancer. Then it began..all the appointments, tests, surgeries, all watching my mom with her courage and strength as I was a wreck inside. Her oncology surgeon Dr. Colfry recommended Dr. Tandon and assured us he was “who he would send his own mom to.” Meeting Dr. Tandon immediately became my mom’s safe place. His demeanor and gentle spirit was exactly what she needed. He has a calm confidence about him that lets you relax and trust, and that’s not easy these days. My mom smiled and lit up whenever she saw him and always called him her “favorite.” Naturally, when I underwent my breast reduction earlier this year, there was no question who I chose. For my own experience as a patient I was so grateful to the kindness I received. The girls at the front desk were always friendly and helpful. Shannon, Dr. Tandon’s nurse was such an amazing support. She was with me every step of the way and was incredible when she removed my drains..I didn’t feel a thing! The very first week after surgery, I felt like I had a neck and back transplant. It’s been 4 months now and I went from having burning pain every day to being pain free! There are no words deserving enough that I can give to describe my gratitude for receiving that gift. It’s been a two year journey knowing Dr. Tandon, and my courageous mom continues to endure her battle with breast cancer. But I can’t express enough, the value in the “knowing” that we’re not alone in this. To see the smile on mom’s face when you even say her doctor’s name, is priceless. Dr. Tandon, with all the uncertainty, panic, and fear that we’ve faced on this long road, thank you for being a safe place for us. You will always be a blessing to my family."- K.M. / Google / Jul 02, 2021
"Dr. Tandon is a wonderful and caring doctor. I love love love him and Shannon! Everyone in the office are extremely nice! I would recommend him fifty million times!!"- G.M. / Google / Jun 22, 2021
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.
