• Men Chest Pectoral Implant

A lot of men are looking to improve their physique, self-image, and body symmetry by using pectoral implants. Pectoral implants enhance pectoral muscle and shape men’s muscle by adding size, fullness and outlining the male chest.

This surgery can be done to intensify an already trim physique, or pectoral implants can be used for people who do not have the time or enthusiasm to spend many hours in the gym.

A soft, premium grade, solid silicone implant is inserted into a space created below the pectoral muscles. When touched, it feels consistent like a flexed muscle. Men chest pectoral implant is a popular and safe procedure. If a patient is not satisfied with the results after surgery, the procedure can be repeated. Scars are easily concealed in the armpit around the hair bearing skin.

The Procedure

A consultation and physical examination determines the perfect shape and size for every patient. The patient is put under anesthesia, and then an incision is made in the axillary region, and a rounded dissection is used to make a pocket under the pectoralis primary muscle. The doctor then places the implant in the pocket underneath the main pectoralis muscle. The lining of the muscle is stitched with absorbable stitches. Subcuticular stitches are then used to seal the skin. With time, the pectoral implant is enclosed by a scab tissue pocket, where it remains for the patient’s lifetime. The procedure takes 1-2 hours.
