Pectoral Implants Surgery

Pec Implant surgery for men

What Are Pectoral Implants?

Many men struggle to attain the definition, mass, and proportionality they desire for their chest muscles. Pectoral augmentation surgery provides a solution to this problem, and Dr. Steinbrech is offering his services in this regard to men in the Chicago area. With pectoral implants, the shape and size of your chest can be controlled and enhanced, allowing you to have your ideal body.

Originally, pectoral implants were designed to serve the needs of bodybuilders who struggled to develop their chest muscles sufficiently with diet and exercise. Nowadays, pectoral enhancement surgery is among the most popular cosmetic procedures for men from all backgrounds and body types. Through the pectoral implant procedure, Dr. Steinbrech can add a sleek, natural, and balanced contour to your chest with this straightforward, quick-healing operation.

How Are Pectoral Implants Performed on Men?

Like many other cosmetic surgeries for men (including gluteal, forearm, and quadricep implants), pectoral enhancement is completed using silicone implants placed directly in the problem area. Unlike the implants used for female breast enhancement, male implants feel firm to the touch, like the natural muscles surrounding them. The procedure is rather simple: small incisions are made (usually near the patient’s armpit), custom-made implants are inserted, and the incisions are sutured shut. The implants are designed to be naturally locked into place by the pectoralis muscle surrounding them. Their placement ensures that normal muscle function is left uninhibited so patients can continue their regular exercise routines after recovery.

Preparation For Pectoral Implants

Patients should prepare for pectoral augmentation surgery like other cosmetic procedures. Avoid food and drink in the 24 hours leading up to surgery. Travel home should be arranged before the operation, as the effects of anesthesia may last for hours or days. Patients will also need to prepare for soreness, mild swelling, or irritation that may follow the operation, although side effects of pectoral implant surgery tend to be minor.

Who Is a Good Candidate For Pectoral Implants?

Men from all backgrounds and body types may choose to undergo pectoral augmentation surgery. What these men have in common is dissatisfaction with the appearance of their chest, whether it be with size, definition, or proportionality. Additionally, men with certain medical conditions affecting muscle development, especially Poland syndrome, may opt for pectoral implants.

Dr. Steinbrech will hold an initial meeting with prospective patients, during which he will review your prior medical history, goals, and overall health before determining whether pectoral implants are the right choice for you.

Pectoral Implants Are a Good Option If You:

  • Struggle to achieve your preferred size or definition of your chest muscles
  • Have asymmetrical and disproportionate pectorals
  • Are seeking to improve the mass of your chest
  • Have realistic expectations regarding surgical outcomes
  • Possess overall good health

What Can I Expect From My Pectoral Implant Recovery?

Following pectoral augmentation surgery, patients typically expect soreness, discomfort, and chest irritation. These side effects tend to resolve within a few days, but full recovery may take up to six weeks. This means that strenuous physical activity, including exercise, should be avoided during this period. Most day-to-day activities, including the resumption of work, can be resumed within one week.
