Will There Be Scars After Bicep Implants Surgery?

Q: Dr. Eppley, I might be interested in the bicep implant. Maybe you can give me some more information on cost and if there are any scars after the surgery. 

A: Thank you for your inquiry. There are two approaches to the placement of a bicep implant, on top of the muscle under the fascia (subfascial) or under the muscle on the bone. (submuscular) There are advantages and disadvantages with either implant location. There are also different incision locations between them as the subfascial technique puts the scar high up in the axilla and the submuscular technique puts a small incision in the inner arm area.
