Synthol isn't quite the same. It's a weird substance, and can actually leak out directly through the skin when over-applied. There are guys who actually do get silicone implants, exactly the same as fake tits, in their arms. At least one reputable guy said Greg Valentino ("The Man Whose Arms Exploded") talked to him at length about silicone implants and other forms of plastic surgery done on males.
One glance points out serious synthol abuse. There are people who are into aesthetics who will use just a bit of it here or there to fill in problem areas. I've seen it done with the traps in a way that didn't look nearly so grotesque, and many suspect that Flex Wheeler used a touch of it on his upper back. Synthol is considered considerably more taboo in bodybuilding circles than steroids because it is so absurd and lazy in most uses, so even people who talk at length about severe steroid abuse won't admit to it.
Well I would imagine that it could be taboo among steroid users seeing how you still have to work hard when on steroids to build muscle. It is just kind of silly to have fake muscles to me. Whether it be through hypertrophy or synthol.
I heard the Rock has small implants in his upper chest. Makes you wonder who else out there is fake.
