Factors such as genetics, growth defects injury and medical conditions may prevent some men from achieving the chest development that they desire. Pec implant surgery is an aesthetic procedure that involves placing a solid silicone implant under the chest muscle to provide a man with a sculpted, masculine chest. Practices offering pectoral implants for men in NYC offer customized solutions to help men achieve their aesthetic goals.
Chest implants are an ideal option for men who failed to shape and enhance their chests even with regular exercise, weightlifting or diet. They enhance the bulk and projection of the chest muscles, creating a thicker, fuller look. They look and feel remarkably natural and can greatly improve a man’s self-confidence.
In AAAASF-accredited plastic surgery practices in NYC, pectoral implant surgery is performed as an outpatient procedure and needs just one to two hours to complete. After numbing the treatment area, the surgeon will make an incision in the crease of the armpit and create a pocket under the pectoralis major muscle. Then the implant is placed in the pocket and the sutures are used to reconnect the muscle lining and close the skin. The sutures will dissolve over time. During the healing process, the implant becomes surrounded by the scar tissue pocket, where it stays permanently. The treatment causes only minimal injury to blood vessels, nerves, tendons and other tissues. With minimal bleeding and discomfort, the procedure comes with a short recovery period. Patients can return to their routine activities within two weeks of the procedure but have to wait up to two months to resume exercises.
The ideal candidate for male pectoral implants is an adult with the following characteristics:
- Has an underdeveloped chest or asymmetrical development of the chest muscles
- Does not have the muscle type that allows chest enlargement with exercise
- Is physically healthy and emotionally stable with realistic expectations about the outcome of the procedure
Pec implants for men come in different sizes and shapes. An experienced NYC plastic surgeon can determine the correct shape and size of implant that will provide the best result for each candidate. In an accredited practice, patients can expect personalized care – from the initial consultation and through every phase of the treatment.
