Can I Get Complete Arm Implants (Bicep, Tricep , Deltoid) All In One Surgery?

Q: Dr. Eppley, My chest look amazing after getting pectoral implants, thank you. In thinking about my next surgery I have two questions: 1) can you do the biceps, triceps, and traps in one operation so I don’t have to go under twice? 2) During the operation can you also give me a cleft chin? Thanks!

A: Thank you for the followup on your pectoral implants and that is good news. In answer to your questions:

1) Bicep, tricep and deltoid implants can be done at the same time. One could argue that is probably not the best combination from a recovery standpoint. (it makes it tough with the entire upper arm has been traumatized) But understandably it is the most efficient way to do it.

2) Making a chin cleft, which are vertical in orientation and located on the lower half of the chin, are done by a soft tissue reduction method. That can be done through either a submental approach or a direct excisional technique. Which one is best depends on how deep one wants the chin cleft to be.
