Pectoral Augmentation - Chest Implants for Men

Men > Pectoral Augmentation

Some men work out extensively and are still unable to develop the pectoral muscles that they hope to have, making the body out of proportion. Fortunately it is possible to enlarge the appearance of their chest muscles (pectoralis muscles, pecs) by placing solid silicone implants to achieve the look they desire.

Pectoral implants will enhance the bulk and projection of your pectoral muscles. Muscle definition must be gained in the gym, and the loss of fat to enhance the visibility of the muscle definition.

Preparing for your Chest Implants

  • You may continue working out up to time of your surgery.
  • Stop smoking three weeks before surgery and three weeks after surgery.
  • Complete history and examination with blood work is required by your family physician.
  • Chest x-ray and electrocardiogram is also needed when indicated.

Pectoral Augmentation: The Surgery

Surgery is performed under general anesthesia or sedation. The incision is well hidden in the arm pit and the endoscope is used to create a pocket under your pectoralis muscle. The muscle is not separated from its attachments to the rib cage or breast bone. The implant is chosen based on measurements of your chest made prior to surgery. The implant is soft, flexible, and durable. Solid silicone is safe, reliable, and durable.

Recovery from Chest Implant Surgery

  • No heavy activity for three weeks after surgery.
  • Recovery is very quick; usually patients are back to work within one week or less.
  • Pectoral implants surgery is an out patient procedure.
  • Dressing and sutures are removed few days after surgery.

Potential Risks

Displacement Chest implant displacement can occur. Surgery will be needed to move them back into position. Fortunately, displacement of chest implants is uncommon.

Infection The risk of infection is very rare, less than 1%. However when it does occur it can be devastating. Treatment requires removal of the implant and possibly hospitalization with intravenous antibiotics.

Hematoma is a collection of blood around the implant and is due to bleeding after surgery. It requires surgery to remove.

Seroma is a collection of fluid around your implants. Most people develop seromas in the first few weeks after surgery, and their bodies reabsorb the fluid. In rare cases, the seroma may persist and may require evacuation with a needle or drain.

Numbness of your inner upper arm may occur as a result of the nerve becoming stretched or injured during surgery. Often the feeling will return within a few months. If it does not, you may have numbness in this area forever.

Can The Implant Be Removed? And The Surgery Reversed?

If you have a complication from your chest implants or decide that you want them out for any reason, the implant can be removed through the same incision.
