Muscle Augmentation Q & A

Pectoral augmentation enhances the tone, definition, and size of chest muscles. You gain the chest shape you desire with silicone implants that look and feel like natural chest muscles. Once the implants are secured underneath connective tissue and on top of existing muscles, you can return to all your normal activities with confidence.
Bicep augmentation uses implants to increase the size and definition of upper arm muscles in people with small or poorly defined muscles, who can’t achieve the tone they desire through training, or who have uneven bicep muscles. The silicone implants are designed to look and feel like real muscle, improving your appearance and creating better proportion for your body.
Triceps muscles have the reputation of being hard to isolate and build up. Augmentation delivers the bulk and definition you want to achieve with silicone implants that look and feel like your natural muscles. With the implant securely placed under the existing muscle, you have the size and shape you want, better proportion between your triceps and biceps, and the freedom to continue your training.
Abdominal augmentation delivers a well-defined and natural-looking six-pack. Six to eight silicone implants, sculpted to look like a well-toned six-pack, are placed over the existing abdominal muscles. They’re flexible enough to move with your body, yet solid enough to look like real muscle, so you can be confident in the appearance of your abdomen.
The quadriceps muscles make up the majority of muscle volume on the front of each leg, so lack of mass and definition is very noticeable. Quadriceps augmentation builds up this area with silicone implants securely placed on top of your existing muscles. Dr. Tiller sculpts the implants to produce the size and shape you want, creating a strong upper leg appearance that’s in proportion with the rest of your body.
Buttocks augmentation achieves several goals. It can build and tone gluteal muscles for those who want a bodybuilder physique. Augmentation can also create a better profile by making up for lack of fatty tissue and reshaping the upper and outer parts of your buttocks. Silicone implants secured within existing muscles craft the desired size with natural definition.
Underdeveloped calf muscles might be hard to bulk up with training, but you can have them augmented with soft silicone implants that are customized to achieve the perfect proportion for your body. Dr. Tiller places the implants under the skin and in front of existing calf muscles, where they naturally enhance the muscles while improving your leg contours.
What type of implant is used to augment muscles?
Dr. Tiller uses implants made of solid silicone that’s hard enough to maintain its shape, yet soft enough to resemble real muscle. Dr. Tiller custom shapes the silicone implant to create the size and contour you want.
What do I need to know about triceps and biceps implant procedures?
When you get a biceps or triceps implant, Dr. Tiller makes an incision in an inconspicuous area of your armpit. He creates a pocket between the existing muscle and the long bone in your upper arm. He then places the implant in the pocket, against the bone but surrounded by your natural soft tissue. Over time, the scar tissue that develops around the implant holds it in place.
How are calf implant and quadriceps implant surgeries performed?
After crafting a silicone implant to the appropriate size and shape, Dr. Tiller makes an incision on the side of your leg for a quadriceps implant or behind your knee for a calf implant. Dr. Tiller creates a pocket between the muscle and the fascia, which is the connective tissue that encloses muscles. After placing the implant in the pocket and securing it with dissolvable stitches, he closes the incision.
What can I expect from surgery for pectoral and abdominal implants?
Surgery to enhance the size of your pectoral (chest) muscles is similar to other muscle augmentation procedures. Dr. Tiller makes an incision around your nipple or in your armpit, makes a pocket for the implant between the fascia and muscle, then secures the implant with self-dissolving stitches.
To create well-defined abdominal muscles, Dr. Tiller makes incisions near your belly button, then places six to eight individual implants over your existing muscles. These implants are flexible enough to move with your natural activity and feel natural to the touch.
What can you expect from buttocks augmentation?
Buttocks augmentation typically rounds out the upper and outer parts of the buttocks, but not the lower part. For this surgery, Dr. Tiller makes an incision at the midline of your buttocks and creates a pocket for the silicone implant either between the muscle and fat layer or in the main buttock muscle. Just like all the other implant surgeries, the buttocks muscles form scar tissue that holds the implants in place.
How long does it take to recover?
Most muscle augmentation surgeries take about an hour or two. You should be able to resume light exercise in two to seven days, and you can expect get back to your normal activities in four to six weeks, depending on the type of implant.
