Muscle Implants


Are you a man who is concerned about looking his best? Many men who are active, physically fit and healthy with optimal exercise and diet programs turn to Michael Schwartz, M.D., board-certified facial plastic surgeon and diplomate of the American Board of Cosmetic Surgery who offers muscle implants for men who live in and around Los Angeles, Pasadena and the surrounding communities of California.

What Are Muscle Implants?

Building muscles takes a real commitment to diet, exercise and pushing yourself. But sometimes no matter how hard you push, you still can’t achieve the appearance that you desire. That’s where muscle implants from Dr. Schwartz come in as an option to help you achieve the look you want. Often, men find that their calves stop responding to exercise, and to give themselves a better appearance in their lower legs they turn to Dr. Schwartz for calf muscle implants. Specifically in the calf region, many men find it very difficult to develop the calf muscles despite a strict diet and an intense workout plan. In large part, the difficulty of calf development arises from the location of the muscle ‘belly’ in relation to the bone insertion, which means that some patients just have great difficulty in building calf mass because of the lack of striated muscle in the area. Calf implants employ the use of solid silicone implants to give fullness and definition to the calves, creating a more ideal proportion to the legs. Pectoral implants can highlight a flat chest, and biceps and triceps implants can give you the definition you are looking for in the arms. Calf implants or muscle implants in other areas of the body from Dr. Schwartz can have you looking athletic and youthful with a simple procedure.

Benefits of Muscle Implants

You deserve to have the appearance that you desire. Live life to the fullest and turn to Dr. Schwartz to help you look your best with muscle implants. Many men want to increase the size and shape of their muscles in areas where they are lacking in definition and bulk, or are already in good shape and want to augment certain areas. Schedule your consultation now, and find out how muscle implants can give you that extra edge with a customized implant solution. The implants Dr. Schwartz utilizes are made of a soft spongy silicone rubber that is designed to mimic the natural shape and feel of your muscles so no one will know that you have muscle implants.

Are Muscle Implants Right For Me?

Men are increasingly sculpting their appearance to look their very best, including many men who turn to Dr. Schwartz for muscle implants to add definition and structure to their physique. Oftentimes, men are unhappy with the size and shape of their calf muscles, bicep muscles or chest muscle, sometimes to the extent that they may avoid wearing clothes or going to social functions that expose them to potential embarrassment. In these instances, even intensive exercise does not significantly enlarge the specific muscles, and that’s when counting on Dr. Schwartz for muscle implant solutions is the smart choice.

  • Calf Implants – Very often men find that the calf muscles just will not respond to exercise, and they are genetically predisposed to a spindly leg appearance. This doesn’t have to be. With calf implants from Dr. Schwartz, you can attain robust, powerful looking calf muscles that you will be proud to show off wearing shorts at the beach or poolside.
  • Biceps Implants – For men, the bicep muscle is the defining symbol of masculinity. If you have maxed out on your bicep muscle growth at the gym, then maybe it’s time to turn to Dr. Schwartz for a muscle implant designed to give you the rugged contour of strong powerful arms. Your arms show off your physical fitness, so give your appearance a boost with biceps implants from Dr. Schwartz.
  • Chest (Pectoral) Implants – The male chest is the centerpiece of a rugged masculine appearance, and sometimes no matter how many push-ups and bench presses you do, you can’t develop the fully strapping appearance that you want and deserve. If that is the case for you, then schedule your chest implant consultation now with Dr. Schwartz and improve the appearance of your chest with a convenient surgical procedure that produces remarkable results.

Elements of a Muscle Implant Procedure

Depending on the muscle group that you are targeting, patients have the option to have different portions of a muscle enlarged, and as a result, existing musculature can be made to appear larger and more defined. During your consultation, Dr. Schwartz will review the different elements of muscle implants and answer any questions you may have. Contact us now to set up your muscle implant consultation with Dr. Schwartz.

What Is a Muscle Implant Procedure?

Muscle augmentation is generally performed as an outpatient procedure that requires about an hour to complete. Depending on where the augmentation is taking place, the procedure will be unique to the needs of that area of the body. In the case of a calf implant, for example, an incision is made in the natural crease behind the knee where a pocket, large enough to place the calf muscle implants, is created. The calf implants can then be placed on both the upper inside or outside of the leg. The incision is then closed with sutures, and a bandage is very carefully applied to reduce any swelling or discomfort.

How Long Is The Recovery After a Muscle Implant Procedure?

Your recovery period after a muscle implant procedure can be divided into short term surgical recovery and long term cosmetic recovery. The surgical recovery happens in the first week following the procedure itself. During this time, you will be instructed by Dr. Schwartz on how to care for your muscle implant, with specific instructions about elevation and how to reduce swelling and discomfort.
