PATIENT PROFILE

People that wish to increase the triceps contour which does not develop by doing sport.

PROCEDURE

Triceps prosthesis requires a meticulous technique and a correct previous evaluation of each particular case, to achieve the final results that the patient wishes, evaluating the volume, projection, physical constitution, skin quality and other factors. From this primary evaluation, the volume of the prothesis will be defined acording to the patient’s wishes.

Tricep implants have an oval shape, like biceps but shorter (they usually measure 10 t0 15 cm long and 4 to 8 cm wide). They are placed through incisions in the axilla and placed under the brachial triceps muscle. Once the implants are placed the incision is sutured and drainages are placed during 24 hours.

This procedure can be done with other prosthesic implants like biceps, shoulders or pectorals.
