What is Male Pec Implant Surgery

Male pec Implant surgery

Male pec implant surgery can give males the definition they desire in the chest region. Dr. Steinbrech specializes in Hi-Definition pectoral augmentation for men. Today, pectoral implants are a favored solution for thousands of men who want to look their best. They can also be used for chest reconstruction after cancer surgery in men.

How Is Pec Implant Surgery Performed?

The most crucial part of any contour surgery is that it is performed by a board-certified surgeon. Dr. Steinbrech and his team specialize in male anatomy and are the trusted experts for pec implant surgery. Pec implant surgery takes approximately 1-1.5 hours. Surgery requires general anesthesia, and implants have to be inserted through a small incision in the armpit. The pectoralis muscle helps keep the implant intact. The muscle function is not hindered, allowing patients to exercise after healing. Unlike the implants for females, male implants are not filled and feel firm to the touch. Over time, the implant becomes surrounded by a scar tissue pocket, where it stays for the rest of the patient’s life.

Who Is a Good Candidate for Pec Implants?

Men who have had cancer surgery on the breasts or men who desire more definition in the chest region are good candidates. If definition cannot be achieved through regular exercise, then a pec implant may be right for you.

What Can I Expect During My Pec Implant Recovery?

Post-pectoral augmentation surgery, male patients can expect soreness for a few days. Total activity (such as strenuous exercise) is restricted to six weeks. However, regular activity can be resumed after as little as one week. During your recovery, you should avoid heavy lifting or running. In the days following surgery, your swelling will subside, and your improved chest definition will be fully realized.

Be aware that any foreign material that is not part of your body will always have a risk for infection, implant migration, and local tissue reaction (view full Pectoral Implant Gallery).

Benefits of Pectoral Implants

Pectoral implants are the perfect procedure for men who lack muscle definition. Another reason why men get this procedure done is to correct an asymmetrical chest undeveloped because of birth or physical trauma. Many male patients report an increased sense of self-confidence after getting a pec implant procedure.


Discuss what you’re trying to achieve in your consultation so you have a clear, concise idea of your goal in the procedure. For two weeks before and after your surgery, avoid Smoking, blood-thinning medication, and NSAIDs such as aspirin, Advil® or ibuprofen, and Aleve®.
