The deltoid muscle is one of the key muscles that give the upper arm its tone and definition, while also defining the shoulders and upper body. In many individuals, the deltoid muscle is naturally under-developed, and no amount of weight training can enhance it. In order to achieve the bulk, tone and definition that you long for in the upper arms and shoulders, you may need a little help from deltoid implants.
For residents of the Houston area, Glamour Plastic Surgery and Med Spa is a state-of-the-art comprehensive cosmetic surgery center that serves male and female patients with advanced aesthetic procedures such as muscle augmentation with deltoid implants.
What Kind of Results Do Deltoid Implants Produce?
Deltoid implants enhance the deltoid muscle, which defines a person’s shoulder span and enhances the collarbone area. In both men and women, deltoid implants can enhance the entire area of the neck and shoulders by increasing width and volume to produce a more attractive proportion between the head and body. In men particularly, deltoid implants are used to increase athletic bulk and create a more defined, masculine shoulder span.
Will Deltoid Implants Make Me Look More Muscular?
Yes. Deltoid implants will enhance the size and shape of your deltoid muscles, which are the muscles that define the overall size of your shoulders. Your arms and shoulders will look more muscular and defined, and you may gain as much as one inch of mass in the deltoid area after the muscles have fully healed from the procedure.
Who Is a Good Candidate for Deltoid Implants?
The ideal candidates for any muscle augmentation procedure are adults who have completed their musculoskeletal development (usually around age 21 in men), in excellent physical health, who are non-smokers. Naturally, you will be screened for any conditions that may be contraindicated, but overall, if you’re in good health, you may be a good candidate for muscle enhancement with deltoid implants.
Do Deltoid Implants Look Good on Women?
Yes, deltoid implants may also be used on women with great results. In women who have poorly developed or sloped shoulders, and a lack of natural muscle mass in the upper arms, a subtle enhancement with customized deltoid implants may add just the right touch of definition to an otherwise droopy silhouette.
How Are Deltoid Implants Inserted?
Typically the procedure is performed under general anesthesia, using small incisions camouflaged in the front and back of the armpit. The surgeon creates a pocket underneath the natural muscle tissue and anchors the implants in place.
What Is the Recovery Period Required After Deltoid Implants?
For the first few days, you should stay home and rest, but most patients are able to resume regular office work after a week or so. For a period of about six weeks you will have to refrain from heavy lifting and strenuous physical activity involving the arms, although the swelling from the procedure may take as long as three months to subside naturally.
Ready for the next step?
The procedure produces very small hairline scars that are camouflaged effectively in the front and back of the armpit, so that they are barely visible.
Deltoid implants are generally made of solid silicone gel, which means they will not leak once in place, as they are designed to hold their shape for a lifetime. Silicone implants are biocompatible and have been used for decades in implant procedures.
