Have you been slaving away at the gym with disappointing results? You’re not alone: Some bodies just aren’t naturally inclined to develop well-defined pectoral muscles. Rather than doing more reps, many men have discovered that enhancing their pecs is the answer. As a matter of fact, pectoral implant surgery for men jumped 43% between 2010 and 2011, according to the American Society of Plastic Surgeons (ASPS).
That’s right—chest enhancement isn’t just for women! The implants used for men aren’t much like the ones used for breast implants in women, so you don’t have to be concerned with gaining a feminine appearance. Although pectoral implants are made of silicone and are soft, they’re also more solid than breast implants, mimicking the feel of natural muscle rather than breast tissue. The pectoral implants we use on men can’t break or leak, either. You can even have custom pec implants created should none of the standard sizes or shapes suit you. And unlike breast implants for women, chest implants for men can last a lifetime.
If you decide more time at the bench press isn’t cutting it and you want to look into chest enhancement for men, you have some options. If you also have unwanted fat deposits around your chest and abdomen, we can combine liposuction with the pectoral implant surgery. The liposuction removes excess fat, making your new chest “muscles” stand out more and giving you an overall appearance of being more toned and fit.
During chest enhancement surgery, you’ll be given a general anesthetic, which means that you’ll be sound asleep while the surgery takes place. The process generally takes one to two hours, during which a small incision will be made, usually in the armpit, and the implant is placed behind the chest muscles. Medication will be provided to alleviate any post-operative pain. Before you go home, we’ll go over any additional instructions for recovery, such as how often to change your bandages and when to return for a follow-up visit.
