Depending on your body type, you may not always get the tone and definition of your chest as easily as others. Even with exercise, some men will not see the results no matter how hard they try in this area of the chest. The breast implant procedure is designed to increase the size and shape of the chest by inserting implants made of silicone under the actual muscle.
In other cases, underdevelopment of the muscles in the chest may be the result of a growth defect or injury. In these cases, pectoral implants can create or recreate a natural-looking chest area. Like many other cosmetic enhancements, this procedure gives men the opportunity to aesthetically enhance a body part through surgery when no other alternatives are available.
The intervention of male chest implants
Unlike female breast implants, pectoral implants are made of solid silicone, which is inserted underneath the muscle tissue. Through a small incision, the surgeon creates space for the pectoral implants. Sufficient space is created above the ribs and below the large pectoral muscle (the large pectoral muscles). Occasionally, the muscle is removed from the edge of the breastbone. The plastic surgeon then places the implants precisely.
Because body types differ, pectoral implants do too, with a wide range of sizes and shapes available. Choosing the implants that work best with the patient's body type and desired outcome requires familiarity with both the implants and the surgery.
The operation ranges from one to two hours, and is performed on an outpatient basis, allowing the patient to return home / hotel the same day.
Recovery after chest augmentation
Recovery can take up to six weeks, but most patients resume activities within a month. A second operation is rarely needed because male breast implants are designed to last a lifetime.
