Even with frequent exercise, some men find that they are unable to achieve the chest definition that they desire. Pectoral implant surgery is a method for improving chest contour. This procedure has become a popular option, particularly for men who are athletic or go to the gym and want to be able to show off their more sculpted, masculine chests.
When to Consider Pectoral Implants
- If your under-developed pectoral muscles make you feel self-conscious
- If you are athletic and wish to improve your chest contour
- If your chest is asymmetrical or otherwise deformed from birth or by an accident
How is a pectoral implants procedure performed?
- During your consultation, your surgeon will measure your chest and discuss the different size and shape implants that are available.
- You will be given general anesthesia or be heavily sedated before the procedure begins.
- A small incision (approximately two inches in length) is made in the hair-bearing region of your arm pit (the axilla).
- Special surgical tools are inserted through the incision and is used to create a pocket, or space, in between your pectoralis major and pectoralis minor muscles (chest muscles).
- The selected implant, based on measurements made prior to surgery, is inserted and positioned between the pectoralis muscles.
- The incision is closed and the procedure is repeated on the opposite side.
- After the procedure is complete, a compression garment may be placed to help minimize swelling or implant shift.
